Corry resident Jim Mehs and his wife recently traveled to Erie for a fun night at the movies, but left feeling horrified about how much it cost.

“While we were waiting for our tickets, we noticed that for children 11 and under it’s the same price as a senior citizen ticket, which is $5,” said Mehs, president of the Corry Arts Council. “Then we bought the smallest popcorn they had, which was $3.50. Then you have to drive to Erie to see the movie. On the way home, my wife and I started wondering how in the world families can afford to take their children to the movies anymore.”

After a little more chatting, the experience gave Mehs an idea.

He began thinking of ways for families to view movies locally, without having to spend a small fortune.
