Leitersburg Cinemas Re-Opens

June 16, 2010

WASHINGTON COUNTY — After eight months dark, Leitersburg Cinemas north of Hagerstown has reopened. The first day of movies was June 11, said Rich Daughtridge, a partner in Leitersburg Cinemas LLC, the company running the multiplex.

This weekend, the cinema is holding a grand opening with children’s activities to tie into the release of the animated movie “Toy Story 3.” Daughtridge said there will be face painting, balloons, an inflatable bounce and people dressed in movie character costumes from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Other cinema operators have come and gone. The cinema briefly shut down in 2002, 2006 and 2007, in between operators. The last operator, Diamond Cinemas, shut down in October 2009. The business was known at the time as Hagerstown Cinema 10. The new focus will be family entertainment. Daughtridge said the cinema will show “mostly” G, PG and PG-13 movies.
