More than a year after the Stagecoach Theater closed its doors, Fredericksburg’s only movie theater will soon reopen under a new name, new ownership and vintage style complete with an “old-school” hand-changed marquee.
The rebranded Fritztown Cinema, owned and operated by Sloan Ruth, will be welcoming movie fans back to its location at 2254 U.S. Highway 87 South on Monday, Nov. 25.
Though a complete slate of films to be shown is not available, Ruth said that the upcoming movie sequel, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will be among the films shown in the theater’s soft opening.
“We want people to come watch the Hunger Games here, if they’re willing to wait three days,” Ruth said.
While next week’s debut will be considered a “soft opening,” Ruth said the theater plans to have a large grand opening celebration in December.
