“As the movie theater industry evolves in the wake of COVID and streaming services, we felt it was time to reprogram our offerings at Village 8,” said Les Aberson owner of Apex Entertainment. “Customers will still be able to watch movies at a significantly lower price than what they would pay at a big chain.”
