Ocala, FL: The Marion Theatre Reopens

Posted on Thursday, June 3rd, 2010 4:00 PM by Scott Jentsch

Moviegoers in Ocala, Florida have another option for seeing their favorite movies with the re-opening of The Marion Theatre on May 27, 2010.

According to an article that appeared in the Star-Banner in Ocala, a grand opening party was held on Wednesday, May 26th with a showing of Sex and the City, followed by a midnight show of Sex and the City 2.

The city has leased the building to Carmike Cinemas, which has upgraded the theater with larger screens, digital cinema projectors for both 2D and 3D movies, and digital sound. The main screen will be in the 320-seat space, and a second 100-seat theater in the balcony space.

According the theater history web site Cinema Treasures, The Marion Theatre opened on September 11, 1941 and operated until 1971 when it sat for 13 years. After being used for other purposes, the theater showed classic and independent movies from August 2007 to January 2008, and then hosted concerts until 2009.
