Movie lovers now have the chance to punch their “golden ticket” and enjoy the newest blockbuster releases in a totally revitalized setting thanks to the addition of Golden Ticket Cinemas at Uptown Aberdeen. The movie theater franchise took over the nine-screen theater previously run by AMC late last year—complete with reclining seats, updated cleaning procedures, and a whole new look for Aberdeen cinephiles to enjoy.
“The reception we’ve received so far has been really great,” manager Bryan Simpson said. “We’re focusing on giving a town like Aberdeen the theater it deserves.”
Simpson said that despite the new wave of movies going directly to streaming services, he’s been encouraged to see people still wanting to get out and enjoy the experience of seeing a movie for the first time on the big screen. It’s a trend he hopes continues as people get more comfortable being out and about again.
“We’re hopeful in how smooth things have been going,” he said. “We’re planning to keep improving and keep showing this place love.”
