Coventry 13, now called Apollo Cinemas, open under new ownership

Brad Pitt is still battling zombies at Coventry 13.

The movie theater in the Village at Coventry is under new ownership as of Tuesday, the date Dallas-based Starplex Cinemas sold the business to the building’s landlords, JSMN International Inc.

JSMN, a New Jersey-based partnership, is operating the theater under the name Apollo Cinemas, said Matt Gebhard, first assistant manager.

The second-run movie theater is open for business, continuing to charge $3 admission every day except Tuesdays, when prices fall to $2 each. Concessions prices are also unchanged, Gebhard said.

The theater’s former owners had posted an online message that the theater was closed as of Oct. 1.

“Starplex Cinemas would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of our employees over the years for their exemplary service and performance of duties and to our many loyal patrons that shared more than a generation of entertainment experiences with us,” the posting said.
