Golden Ticket Cinemas is based in Durham, North Carolina, with locations in nine states.
“We’ve been looking at the Madisonville area for some time and couldn’t be happier to bring a new cinematic experience to market,” said John Bloemeke, President of Golden Ticket Cinemas. “We want to quickly reopen the facility to get movies back on screen in Madisonville. Obviously, it’s been a tough two years, but the future is bright for the movie industry, and we’re happy to make sure that the hallowed tradition of going to the movies will continue in Madisonville for years to come. .”
Officials say Golden Ticket Capital 8 will reopen this month and be ready to play big upcoming movies such as The Batman, Morbius, Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore, The Northman, Lightyear, Top Gun and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and more.
“Later this year, we will be adding beautiful touches to the lobby as well as Dolby 7.1 sound, reserved seating and our new VIP luxury seating sections in each auditorium,” Bloemeke said. “Additionally, we will completely revamp our food and beverage menu with a significantly expanded selection beyond the typical concession fare.”
Officials say they are also expanding the menu. They say that in addition to popcorn, candy, and nachos, you can now order various hot items such as appetizers, wings, pizza, and milkshakes.
