OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - The new Malco Owensboro Cinema opened to the public on Thursday.
The new theater located in the Gateway Commons has 14 auditoriums. Their biggest screen is in the state of the art MXT Extreme Theater that can hold over 300 seats and a 72 foot screen.
The president of the theater says he is sad to see the old Malco Cinema in Owensboro go, but the new one will offer more fun for the public.
“This new one is going to offer all of the things that we weren’t able to do there," says Malco Cinema President David Tashie. "Now everyone in Owensboro is going to have a new state-of-the-art facility to enjoy for generations to come.”
Malco’s previous location was on Frederica Street.
Many movie goers came out to see the newly released Toy Story 4 on Thursday. Every theater in the cinema will be open on Friday.
