While not all theaters were filled to capacity, they did pack quite a crowd for Bright Star’s Red Carpet VIP Event Wednesday night.
Community members had begun arriving at the East Shannon Road movie theater by 4 p.m. and by the official opening of the newly renovated facility, the entry lines stretched into the parking lot.
ShowBiz Cinemas Director of Marketing Beth Miska welcomed everyone to the kickoff event. Ashley and Sloan Wynn, daughter and granddaughter of cinema owner Kathy Lee, officiating at the ribbon cutting.
The seating is as comfortable as promised, with comfortable reclining seating, great sound and a good visuals on the new systems. The lines of movie-goers taking advantage of the free popcorn and drinks during the red carpet event spanned the lobby, but the mood was friendly while waiting.
Afterward, those in attendance offered praise for the new system and “great” experience in the renovated screening rooms and facilities.
