Families show appreciation for discount movie theatre in Boardman

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio -

It wasn't a huge crowd that showed up for the grand re-opening of Movies Eight in Boardman, but many of those who attended the first matinees just after noon on Friday brought their children.

The Cinemark chain closed the second run movie house in March, saying other venues had been offering sales on tickets as well as movies in HD and 3D, which was not available at Movies Eight.

Now under new ownership, the re-incarnation of Movies Eight has two theatres capable of exhibiting 3D movies, as well as digital projection.

Operator Brian DeCiancio has partnered with the operators of Shops at Boardman Park where the theatre is located, to bring discounted movies back to the area. 

Since the movies shown at Movies Eight came out about a month ago, the theatre can offer ticket prices of three dollars for regular movies, and five dollars for 3D features.

DeCiancio also says that concession prices are aimed at families on a budget.

He says that they are still in the process of making improvements inside the theatre, but he thinks that was important to make the discount prices available as soon as possible.

"With the movies opening the prices are very high. To bring a whole family it's like taking a vacation out of town but with this back open you can cut down the price." said Wayne Holloway of Youngstown, who was among those attending the first showings.

Boardman Movies Eight is open seven days a week, with matinees starting just after noon, and late shows at 9:00 or 10:00 p.m.
