WHITEVILLE, NC (WECT) – A movie theater in Whiteville that has been operating for 85 years will be shutting down Saturday.
The Cinema Three Movie Theater still uses film projectors, and owners said it would cost more than $100,000 to switch to the digital format newer movies use.
Even though the landmark in downtown Whiteville is shutting down, the theater is expected to open its doors one last time later this month for an annual Halloween lock-in.
