BERLIN — The town’s only movie theater, Picture Show Entertainment, held a grand re-opening recently after being shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Extensive renovations were done to the theater at 19 Frontage Road just before the pandemic.  

“We are happy they are here and got through COVID-19,” Mayor Mark Kaczynski said during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 17. “We are thrilled with the renovations and I know the town of Berlin and surrounding towns support their reopening.”

Moviegoers can now enjoy recliner seats, renovated lobby and concessions stand, and expanded food menu. 

Food offerings include hot dogs, burgers, funnel cake fries, ice cream, and of course, fresh popcorn. The new self-service Coca-Cola Freestyle Machine allows users to select from over 100 different types of soda. 

Additionally, visitors can relax at the beer and wine bar, which replaced the former video game room. 

“I love seeing the regulars and also the new faces come and being excited to see movies again,” said the Picture Show general Manager Kellie Koshinsky. “It’s just a great feeling.”

From June 21 to August 25, visitors can also enjoy the Summer Movie Series on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9.15 a.m., for just $1 a ticket or $3.50 a ticket with a movie meal.
