Brighton, NY - Cinemark Movies 10 in Brighton is closing

From the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle: No word on how many employees will lose their jobs or if they will be offered work at another Cinemark property, the Tinseltown USA and IMAX in Gates.

The Brighton movie complex stood out from other theaters that offered reserved adult tickets for $12.49, reclining seats and larger format screens. . Four tickets to an evening screening of the animated film Storks at Movies 10 went for about $17.50 last weekend.

Movies 10 also tried to adhere to a family-first mantra.

In 2004, Cinemark decided to prohibit children 6 and younger from viewing R-rated movies after 6 p.m. at the complex. Previously, children would be admitted to those movies if accompanied by an adult.

Other theaters followed suit, but only years later.

There still are theaters in the Rochester area that offer reduced prices for adults, seniors and children and special prices based on the time of day: the Cinema Theatre on South Clinton Avenue, the Strand in Brockport and the Dryden Theatre at the George Eastman Museum on East Avenue. (They also offer double features and films not available elsewhere.) But the absence of Movies 10 will leave people with one fewer discount choice.
