Did you know movie theaters can be local too? Meet Frank Moses one of the owners of Golden Star Theaters Austintown Cinema. When the national company Regal stepped away, Frank and his brothers saw an opportunity to create an amazing luxury theater experience right here in the Valley. Keeping it local, they even have our local beers from our talented brewers ready to serve. Sipping on some BIRDFISH BREWING CO., Frank tells us the ins and outs of owning a theater and all the improvements they’ve made in their Austintown location. Nothing beats the experience of watching a blockbuster in the theater, and nothing beats movie theater popcorn. #supportlocal #drinklocal
