It appears that a lot of theaters are dropping early afternoon matinees and later evening shows. Probably due to the difficulty with finding employees. Condensing the number of showtimes between Monday and Friday. Also the lack of major films during the winter months.

Not what we needed in the area is another supermarket especially a ShopRite. The area needs another movie theater.

Just the IMAX theater is going to be demolished. Because of the location of the theater to the old railroad bridge that will be replaced. Plans call for a new theater to be built on the other side of the museum.

Jumped the gun a bit. Theater closed on Monday November 11th. It is a nice space. Hope someone else takes it over. Lowering the admission price a bit would be good.
