Georgetown movie theater reopens

After closing in October, the Theatres of Georgetown has now reopened under new ownership.

The multiplex, which is the only in Georgetown, is owned by Roaden Enterprises, which also operates a twin-screen drive-in in Somerset, said Scott Roaden.

Roaden said the company has been repairing the projector systems and sound systems and has six of the location's seven screens now showing first-run movies. The seventh is expected to be operational later this month.

Evening ticket prices are $6.50 for adults and $5 for students, seniors and children. Shows before 6 p.m. are $5 for all patrons, he said.

The previous owner, Nova Cinemas, cited the recession for its closure and noted the other closings in the Factory Stores of America outlet mall where the cinema is located.
