This is your typical shopping center theatre. I personally would not call it a “Cinema Treasure.” It was constructed and opened initially on Dec. 18, 1992. This was prior to the stadium seating rage and the floors are not even sloped in the theatres. Fortunately, the screens are high enough to still give a decent sight line. The complex was intially operated by Greater Baltimore Cinemas. But less than one year after operation it was taken over by Reel entertainment and became a $1.00 admission rerun complex. After being closed for three months, the complex reopened in Dec. 2002 and has been operated by Galaxy Theatre Corp. since that time. I visited the theatre after it reopened in Dec. 2002. There was no stereo or digital sound. Although the admission prices are lower than most other local complexes.

Galaxy Theatres closed this complex on Monday, Jan. 2, 2006. They sited mounting losses since it began operating the multiplex in Dec. 2002. They said it never reached the potential that they thought it had. Despite keeping prices lower than other area complexes. Their admission was $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for children and they showed first run movies. Other complexes are charging $8.50 in this area now for adult admissions. They had two years remaining on their lease, but the property owner left Galaxy out of the remainder. It was hinted that the theatres would be replaced with retail stores. However, the property owner said nothing is definite yet.

This shopping center theatre reopened on Friday, May 26th. It has been taken over by a group of investors from Baltimore. The name of their investment group is Diamond Theatres. According to newspaper articles they also have spent $200,000.00 on remodeling the six screen complex. Stereo sound has been added and there is “tiered” seating according to their ads. The admission prices are lower than the other national chain operating a complex in the Lancaster Co. area. They are also showing first run attractions. I hope this problem location can finally become a successful operation.

Well, on Sept. 28, 2007 this shopping center theatre became a reduced admission “subrun” operation. They have a matinee admission of $3.00 and an evening admission of $4.00. That is about half of what the “first run” theatres in this area charge. However, beginning on Sept. 28th they are showing “Shrek 3” , “Pirates 3”, “LIve Free or Die Hard” to mention just three of the six theatre attractions. Sad to see, but without digital sound and stadium seating as all the other local theatres have, it is understandable.

For a while now, this has become – again – a reduced admission subrun theatre. For $2.00 in the afternoon and $4.00 in the evening you can see a movie.
