Status Update 2: Barring any major delays we are planning to reopen Aug 22nd playing Captain American 2 and Edge of Tomorrow.

Status Update: Renovations are taking longer than expected as there are about one thousand construction projects and they seem to be working on all of them at the same time. Then we have to put up the new screen and all the other non-construction improvements we have planned. We now expect to reopen mid to late August.

Renovation Update.

Most people didn't know there was an unused stage behind Western Film's screen. The current renovations are mostly about reclaiming that space so it can be used. Since we have to take the screen down and close for a time anyway we decided to give Western Film what we are calling a Redux.

Final decisions are yet to be made but the Redux will probably include the following elements.
- a new screen mounted higher to improve sightlines from both main floor and balcony.
- The Digital Projector moved to a upper projection booth where we won't have people standing up into the image any more?!
-A complete visual overhaul including curtains and lighting. This will be the fun stuff.
-Some changes will occur at the snack bar as well.
-We are redoing our marketing and advertising including a new logo and website.

We will be updating our website as things progress.

Ever wondered what's behind the screen of a movie theatre?
Answer below..
Really Big Sound Equipment...

no screen

As of Jun12th the stage and back area were gone, ready for the new to be built...
ripped apart
This is what Rows of theatre seats looked like covered in plastic. Came in handy as the room is covered in plaster dust now.
seatsAs of Jul 25th the new bulkhead behind the screen is mostly finished. The empty spaces will house the speakers. The doors along the bottom are for storage under the screen.

Western Film request to patrons. Please stop bringing young children to movies that aren't meant for them. (World War Z wasn't meant to be seen by 5 year old children). The children's talking and moving around are a distraction to the other patrons. We will be monitoring the theatre and requesting children to be quiet and sit still or leave.
