Cut! Movies at Park Theater not likely
Placeholder Image
Among all the big-band music and ribbon-cutting grandeur at the Park Theater reopening celebration last weekend, one question kept making its way down the red carpet.Is the Park Theater going to be able to show movies?It's a question that's not completely answered but all signs are pointing toward a towering "No." The renovated Park Theater may become known for a great many things but movie house doesn't appear to be one of them.To understand that answer, it helps to get the story from the start. In attempt to do that, I stopped by Three Star Cinema on Wednesday afternoon and had a chance to chat with owner Bob Basham.Bob and his wife Wanda grew up in the movie business and spent time working at both the Cowan Oldham Theater and the Park Theater when they decided to open Three Star Cinema.
