The Fight To Save Twin Cinemas
What will kids do without the movie theater?
It's a question some in McDowell County are asking, as the McDowell Twin Cinemas continues fundraising in an effort to stop open.
The Marion theater needs to raise at least $56,000, and theater owner Robert Harwood will pay the rest with his own money, in order to buy new projectors to show the movies in the format that they'll begin to be sold in 2014.
"This theater and the bowling alley up here, that's the only two places they can go and have some enjoyment," Harwood said of kids in the county. "If this theater shuts down, they - you know the majority of people in this county - they ain't got nothing else."
Harwood said the next closest theater is a 25 minute drive away in Morganton.
