Movies Return to Monroeville

Posted By on Thu, Nov 7, 2013 at 3:30 PM

There’s a light in the east — and it’s the glow of a new movie theater! Nearly a decade after the Showcase East shut its doors, a new theater complex opens today at the Monroeville Mall.

Officially called “Cinemark Monroeville Mall and XD,” the new cineplex has 12 screens. Half the theaters will be RealD 3D-capable, and for maximum “D,” there is an “Extreme Digital Cinema” auditorium.

Plus the standard amenities of 21st-century movie-going: floor-to-ceiling screens, digital surroundsound, plush stadium seating and a well-stocked concession stand.

The theater is showing current releases, plus one special treat through the weekend: Midnight screenings Thursday, Friday and Saturday of George Romero’s 1978 zombie classic, Dawn of the Dead, shot at the Monroeville Mall. See complete theater schedule here.
