8/17/2012 - MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- According to a recent 24/7 Wall St. article, US consumers are spending nearly 50 percent more to stay home and watch movies that they either buy or rent. As a result, movie theaters across the country are seeing attendance numbers decrease dramatically.
The Mountain Home theater has been no exception to this trend and, as a result, will be closing its doors on Sept. 14.
"While going to the theater will no longer be an option, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service still provides options for Airmen and their Families, to see all the Hollywood hits," said base exchange General Manager Bonnie Lindahl.
