Green River To Get Movie Theater Back

Green River, WY – A movie theater in Green River will reopen after residents flooded the owner with requests and phone calls to reconsider closing it. The Star Twin will reopen in six to seven weeks depending on when new chairs and equipment arrive. That's according to Encore Cinemas President Randy Pryde. He says when the theater closed, the company sold the chairs and equipment, so it had to order more before reopening. The movie house will reopen as a discount theater. Green River City Administrator Barry Cook says a city with 12 thousand residents "certainly deserves" a movie theater.
