Leitersburg Cinemas

Opened on November 26, 1970, the Hagerstown 10 Cineplex has ten auditoriums. One auditorium is also used for concerts. In addition, a drive-in theater with an inflatable screen is located in the parking lot. Double features are shown at the drive-in on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

In 2009, new management took over and it was renamed Leitersburg Cinemas. New Vision Cinemas took over in January 2019. On March 16, 2020 it was closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. New Vision went into receivership on June 20, 2020 and the theatre was sold, together with fixtures and fittings, making the closure permanent.

Sounds like a very interesting place. Movies, concerts and a weekend drive-in sure sounds multi-purpose to me. Perhaps this is something that could take off in other parts of the country, maybe even here in New Jersey.

The management that was doing work on the drive-in and theater left the business. The theater closed for a short while, and fortunately another group signed a 10 year lease last year. The family that owns the theater is going to auction off the land some time this month!! I hope that this theater will stay with new ownership. The drive in would nice if brought back.
