Local movie theatre reimagining the way it does business
NILES, Mich. - Because of the pandemic, the entertainment industry shut down. There has been a nationwide shift from the typical movie night inside a theatre back to driving up and watching a movie that way.
Moore tells me he would’ve reopened sooner but it’s just not up to him.
“We tried scheduling reopen July 3, July 10. It's really dictated by what Hollywood does, especially with the new releases and stuff. We're finding theaters across the nation and across the state that are showing older movies. Other than if you're drive-in, you're doing fantastic if you're not drive-in, and you show older movies, whether it be John Hughes marathon was 16 candles and all those kind of things or a karate kid marathon or something like that going back to the originals, theatres are struggling for people to come," he said.
As for Friday, concessions to go that ends at 7 and there will also be a movie in the park which that starts around 9:30.
