EXETER — After nearly 50 years, Fox East movie theater in Exeter Township will close on Sept. 19, the company announced Tuesday.
According to a post on the company's Facebook page:
"Fox East originally opened in 1971 as a two-screen "twin" theater, the first multi-screen movie theater in Berks County.
"In 1973, two more screens were added to meet the strong demand for movies at that location. Fox East has a rich movie history and a devoted customer base, but lately has struggled to maintain its audience as we've upgraded our Fox Berkshire eight-screen theater in Wyomissing.
"We are honored to have entertained the local community who enjoyed movies at Fox East and look forward to continuing to serve them at Fox Berkshire."
