This theater now has it’s fourth owner in as many years and is operated by a company called “Picture Show”. AMC could not acquire this theater when they bought out Starplex due to anti-trust reasons related to their theater in Plainville, so the theater was operated by Carmike for a year. Then when AMC bought out Carmike the same problem arose, and I’m actually surprised they were able to find a buyer so quickly.

This one went to Starplex because it was one of the 3 theaters sold from Rave to Cinemark that owned its own land. The other theaters all leased the land, so Rave could sell this one and the other 2 (Rave Southington, CT and one in Pennsylvania) to anyone who wanted the land. Starplex chose Berlin only, so as of right now Berlin is the only Starplex in CT.

Rave is getting out of the movie theater business – they’ve sold off sites to Carmike, AMC and many of the former National Amusements sites to Cinemark (the sale is still pending, my guess is its tied up for DOJ reasons as they overlap in Ohio). Not sure why this one went to Starplex, but as Starplex usually does, they’ve lowed prices ($7 adult admission).
