The parking lot was packed at the Miracle 5 movie theatre tonight. The theatre officially went out of business after their 7:00 PM show. Miracle 5 has been supplying the community with its fix of independent films since 1968.
Some came out to catch one last flick in this theatre. Others told us more reasons for going to Miracle 5 tonight. "To see what I'm sure is an excellent movie and to hopefully give Regal Entertainment some inkling of what a gigantic mistake they're making," says one moviegoer.
Independent film fans say they are disappointed. They are also hopeful that someone else will come along who will keep these films on the big screen.
The workers at Miracle 5 are being transferred to work at the movie theater in the Governor's Square Mall.
