|Home: BigScreen Journal - La Porte, IN: La Porte Cinemas Grand Re-opening Scheduled for April 1|
Movie fans in La Porte, Indiana have reason to celebrate as the La Porte Cinemas will re-open on April 1, 2010!
The movie theater was closed last October by operator Kerasotes ShowPlace Theatres, LLC. Kerasotes announced in January 2010 that AMC would be purchasing most of their locations, with just a few being retained by the company.
The Herald Argus published an article Monday that says that the new owner is CineMajestic LLC, which also owns the Lorraine Theatre in Hoopeston, Illinois:
[Josh Caudle, president of CineMajestic LLC] said the theater is waiting for its four screens to ship from the East Coast.
“We need to get her open,” he said, noting that he wants to open the theater in time for local students to see films on their spring break. He said he also wants the theater to be open in time for the release of “Clash of the Titans,” featuring Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson and opening nationwide April 2.
CineMajestic is undergoing renovations that in the end will total more than $100,000. The aisle widths have been doubled from two feet to four feet, Caudle said, and the seat count for each screen has been decreased to 200. The management is currently giving away 1,000 seats which they removed, Caudle said.
The new seats will be “very plush” and have high backs. They will be in the rocker-seat style and leg room will be in abundance, he said.
“We have eliminated the position of anyone under 6’9” having their knees even close to touching the next seat in front of them,” he said.
