Pittsburg movie theater's lower prices draws in crowds

Updated:

Bad weather may put a damper on the day and keep people indoors...but for some, that's not a bad thing.

"Well, we were going to the pool, and it's raining. So we came to the movies since it's the next best thing" says Elizabeth Fornelli of Cherokee, KS.

Since being purchased by the Starplex Cinemas Corporation in July, the Pittsburg 8 theater now has some upgrades that draw people inside, like new seating and carpeting...but the biggest incentive? lower ticket prices.

Traci Hoey, of Starplex Cinemas says "The thought behind it comes from answering the questions of what was driving more people to the theater more often, and what makes it more affordable for families to go."

With the lower prices...movie goers from across the four state area were drawn to Pittsburg for the good deals.

Caleb Dodds of Pittsburg Resident views about 1 to 2 movies a week, and says the prices can't even compare to others he's been to, which saves him about 3 or 4 dollars per week.

The theater hopes the lower prices will bring in more business to not only the theater, but the mall as well.
