Sherman Movie Theater Ready For Opening

Posted: Updated:

SHERMAN, TX -- After several years sitting idle, a local movie theater has been made over and is ready for customers once again.

The Midway Mall has completed renovations in its theater, and will re-open on Friday night for the weekend, and hold a grand opening next Wednesday. Patrons will be allowed to eat on trays in the theater as long as the food was bought in the mall.

"The theater was completely gutted out and we've come in and we've installed new sound equipment, we've got new screens, we've installed seats, we even had to install all of the concession equipment," says manager Tabetha Snow.

Managers say the theater plans to show movies that are a few weeks old, and they hope the theater will get more people coming into the mall.

The first showing will be "The Dark Knight Rises" on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. Evening tickets will be $4.75 for adults and $3 for children. Two small 110-seat theaters will be open first, and there are plans to eventually use all five theaters.
