Her responsibilities will include the daily operations of the theater, scheduling, and the hiring and training of new staff. “I want to return Leitersburg Cinemas to its former glory and make it the #1 Family Movie Theater in the area! Not just a place to come a watch a movie, but a place to enjoy”, said Jessica Rea.
