Yes Psomerf, it was bought and they are renovating it. It is going to be the new location for Elevate which is a modern-geared church.

Last time I drove past (about two weeks ago) I saw a crew working on the roof. That suggests the owners may want to put something in there. Just what, I don’t know.

The Tinseltown is just over one mile away to the south, which is probably one reason Cinemark closed the Millcreek 6.

Here is an article about the closing, which leaves Erie with only one operating theater. The article indicates, accurately, that viability of discount, second-run theaters is not what it once was, and that the theater is old by current industry standards.

Cinemark or the property’s owner probably did not want to invest what would be needed to upgrade the theater (digital projection, stadium seating, etc.). There is at least possibility that another operator could take it over depending on what the property owner wants to do with it or what offers are made, but it is probably more likely that in time another theater would be built, posssibly to the east of Erie, depending on demographic factors.

What is the Status Cinemark didn’t want to update to Digital, not closed long… I would assume there is someone out there that might be interested in assuming the lease… How close is Tinsletown?
