Breaking Ground With Penn Cinema

The newest addition to the Wilmington Riverfront

Penn talking to the crowd

Zach here with some big news in East Coast multiplex news.  After a number of starts and stops, it looks like the Penn Cinema in Wilmington, DE is going to happen. Paul and I attended the groundbreaking ceremony last Thursday morning for the $20 million 14 screen plus IMAX complex. Penn Ketchum (president of Penn Cinema Management Co.), along with a large group of family and friends from Lititz, PA, various dignitaries, the mayor of Wilmington and some grown men in pajamas also attended the ceremony. Penn plans a grand opening on November 9 for the debut of Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond Film.  I'll keep you updated as we roll toward that opening date.
