July 13, 2013

No matter how rural the North Country is, people should be able to see new movies on the big screen up here....

I've said it before and I'll say it again. These theaters have known for over a decade that this conversion was coming. They should have started saving up like most of us do. I 100-percent support local theaters but take offense to this all of a sudden we need your money now approach. This is nothing new.

Area cinemas are mostly run as an unprofitable business by people who love theaters and want to give to their community. I run the State Theater and have never taken a paycheck, and have worked in NYC to make enough to keep it afloat. I hate to see what our main street would look like with an empty theater there. There simply isn't enough profit to save for a 90,000 improvement that doesn't even add to the bottom line. That size loan would sink the theater. So...should it go out of business because it doesn't deserve to live under normal business rules? I like to think we contribute to daily life in Tupper Lake, and will try to keep it open and available to all community events for as long as possible. Your view is severe...the theater occupies a different role in the community than most other businesses.
