I can not believe that the owners of the movie theater are begging for people to give their money to raise 144,000 so they can get new equipment and stay open. If you did this it would be so they can keep the theater in their "family" without costing them out of their pocket. However then the movies would just be passed down to their worthless kids. That is not how owning a private business works, he should have saved money to prepare for this day instead of paying out 40,000 on his son's lawyer bills. You know the one that was manufacturing meth in the house here in Marion. They are not all they seem.... I just don't think people should beg for other people's hard earned money. He knew this was coming, the example of the business in Burnsville was different. That young couple bought the cinema without knowing the equipment would be no good. These people have know for 8 plus years. They are old enough to retire. Maybe a new family would come along and put the investment into the business or a bigger cinema would come. There was talk of that one time before...

Leave it. Stop disrespecting good people and trying to start unnecessary things. A big movie chain will NEVER move here because the simple fact of stupid people like you complaining about everything.

Disrespecting? I don't think you understand how business works. Instead of keeping all profits for themselves, maybe they should have done the right thing over the years and actually upgraded their infrastructure, then this would have never happened. Sink or swim. If you can't run a business, you don't need to run a business. Simple as that.

They are not good people. They raised a bunch of dead beat kids. One won't keep his child up and is a drunk, the other gave his kid up for adoption and is a drunk, one is in prison for manufacturing meth in their house while they looked the other way, and the daughter ripped the government off claiming disability but still works under the table and stays on vacation. All the while they want people to look the other way and sweep things under the rug. They have 2 grand daughters and act like they have one. They didn't even try to help with the grand daughter that the son had and then ran off. All you know of them is the bullshit you see put on as an act at the movies. The family is all to hell and always has been. Now it is just showing the greediness of the owners wanting a handout so that they will have something to give to their kids. They should use their own money they have hid.

I agree with the other comment, they should have invested in the business and they did not. Therefore, they should have to close. Maybe another family can run it better and invest into the theater without needing someone else to provide the money. That would be like a dentist asking for you to buy his equipment for him so he can stay in business so that he can charge you to fix your teeth.

All the money he was able to hide over the years by taking cash only for concessions and tickets should have been able to buy his equipment many times over. He is a crook already by not paying taxes on thousands and thousands he made under the table.

Actually if i remember correctly a few years back they did upgrade some stuff. Like those drink holding arms and the cushions. And if your bashing them about family that's fine you can't control people that's life. And i know business trust you me like i know obviously parents did their business and left an idiotic offspring that's good for nothing accept bashing other people on the internet when your no better and probably never will be anything more than trailer trash.

I WISH my life was as simple as being trailer trash, living off of the welfare, and smoking meth.

I say dump it close it up most people go to Morganton theatre anyway. I saw NC Outreach Homecare take their little old and handicapped people there or the school will take kids there I wouldn't take my dogs there that place reeks. You have to listen to that hotline that tells you what's playing 4 times because I couldn't understand what he's saying! Alot of "special" groups use it I'm guessing because they won't notice the smell or the altogether low quality of the establishment.

The movie theater has known for several years that this was happening so it is their own fault. Hopefully that nasty disgusting eyesore will be closed!

They've known for 8 years and 6 months before they cry for money. Let it go under.

I agree with Anna! I'm so sick of "businesses" in McDowell County begging for money from the community so they can stay open and so they can still """provide """ us their services! Yeah right, so they can "offer" us their services! No, it's so they can remain open and they can make money, not for us, the "community", but for themselves! I'm all for opening a business and keeping it in my family, but when business owners make bad desions, DO NOT ask the community for money to help bail you out so you can still provide us your services! I can't believe that this begging appears on our front page newspaper! I do believe Catawba Vale Cafe did the same thing to us, begging for money so they can stay open! Im sorry, but your poor business desions are not my problem or concern! My concern is MY family! My concern is keeping my job which provides me my money which goes into an account that my children will inherit! My money will never go to your failing business so it can be passed down to your children! You don't see me walking into your establishment asking you for money for my mortgage so I can keep my house? You would laugh your ass off at me! So, why do you do this to us I ask??
shut it down

They need to shut it down and quit begging for money. Anna was right that family is for crap. A bunch of druggies, thiefs and losers, crookes and beggars apparently.

In an all cash business AND knowing they had 8 years to transfer or save the money to upgrade, well it is just their fault. It would only have been $350 per week for then to save up for it. Instead, they have spent thousands and thousands keeping up deadbeat kids.
