Four screen theater proposed for Mansfield

MANSFIELD, PA — There has not been a movie theater in Mansfield since the Twain Theatre closed decades ago. The new theater would have four screens and seat about 730. Construction, expected to be completed in about two years, appears dependent upon state grant funding.

“Time and again that has been the No. 1 request of any survey that has been done,” he said.

The corporation had a feasibility study done in 2008 and it revealed that the theater’s gross income was conservatively estimated to be around $600,000 per year, or about $10,000 to $12,000 per week in ticket and concession sales, Strohecker said. That was based on $5 per ticket.

The story appeared in the Sun Gazette.

Just where does Pennsylvania – currently facing a multi-billion dollar budget deficit for the current fiscal year ending June 30, 2011 have three million dollars in grant money for a multi-plex theatre? I need to talk to my legistators.
