Percy and Janice Mounteer, new owners, are in the process of making many changes with the Star Theatre in Huntington.
The Mounteers took over as new managers on March 15 and plan to open the theatre to live performances, educational speakers, and have a variety of things during off-hours of the regular movie presentations they are presenting. They have also expanded their concessions and plan further expansions.
They plan on having the new doors open in time for Huntington Heritage Days and invite the public to see all the work that is being done on the building.
Janice has worked with the public for 20 years both in Carbon and Emery counties, while Perry has worked as a warehouseman and for the state road department. They raised two sons and are now foster parents along with enjoying their seven grandchildren.
"We love having the Star Theatre and enjoy the support of both communities," said the Mounteers, adding, "We would like again to give a big thank you to all of you and especially to those who helped us clean, paint and move."
Star Theatre is located at 163 North Main in Huntington. Their phone number is (435) 687-9026.
