The second run movie theatre that closed in Boardman after 21 years in operation is opening again under new ownership.


The owner of Encore Cinemas, which operates Cinema Six in Niles, the Skyway Twin Drive-in and Laser Storm in Warren, plans to re-open the Movies Eight at the Shops at Boardman Park.

Encore Cinema owner, Brian DeCiancio, tells 21 news that they will install digital projectors, and hope to start showing movies again in mid-June.

He says he expects tickets will be priced at two dollars.

Cinemark, the previous owner of  Movies Eight, closed the theatre in March saying that it's customers were going to other theatres that offered digital movies and other amenities.
