Why would anyone want to bring a movie theater to MethDowell county? No reason to grossly overpay for a movie ticket and concessions when you can rent one online or goto any number of Redboxes in the county and rent one. Or you can watch all the movies and tv shows you want with streaming services like Netflix and Hulu Plus. A movie theater? SHDM LOL!

McDowell would Deff benefit from a movie theater. Yes WE can drive to morganton or Asheville, no problem but residents of spruce pine used to come to Marion to watch movies, I work in a restaurant and have had tables from spruce pine tell me this. If we had more people coming from bakersville plus all the tourists traveling through that would increase all our local businesses

When a theater chain or a group of local investors decide the fiscal risk will be worth taking, it will happen; until then it is like wishing in one hand and shi**ing in the other and seeing which one will fill up first.

IMHO, a theater done right AND one that got large incentives from the county like they gave Lowes and Wal Mart could make it for sure. A friend and I have spoken about opening a new theater years before MTC closed....the pesky issue of needing A LOT of funds always got in the way, lol.
