No movie theaters in Monroeville, PA

Attention theater chain owners. Monroeville, PA needs a movie theater! There used to 4 movie houses(1 being the Carmike Monroeville) here and all have closed in the past decade or so. This is a huge shopping district in the greater Pittsburgh area. Please bring movies back to Monroeville!

“When there are no more cinemas in Hell, the Dead will watch DVDs.”

Sorry. I couldn’t resist that one. ;–)

Rick is absolutely right. It is absolutely atrocious that there are no theaters left in this bustling commercial area, with its world famous mall and row after row of busy shopping centers and restaurants. C'mon AMC, Pacific, Loews and Regal – step up to the plate: take a look at Western PA – this is a hugely profitable opportunity. The Waterfront complex has proven what business a state-of-the-art theater can attract. “If you build it, they will come…”

(By the way, awesome one-liner, MovieMatty!)

Right with you, Rick! Being a proud Pittsburgher myself, although I didn’t have the pleasure of visiting most of them, Monroeville has had a colorful history of classic theaters: Cinema 22, Monroe, Cinemette East, Monroeville 4, Showcase East, Pittsburgh Drive-In (the second drive-in in the Pittsburgh area), Monroeville Drive-In and Miracle Mile Drive-In.

I know there are plenty of places to build at least one new theater in Monroeville. Perhaps even a new drive-in theater could come into play out there. After all, only one thing is impossible, and that’s nothing.
