Movie Theater Returning To West Ocean City

WEST OCEAN CITY – A new movie theater is coming to the White Marlin Mall in West Ocean City.

Flagship Cinemas, a privately held company that owns and operates movie theaters in Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida, is expected to open a new location in the West Ocean City shopping center by early next year.

The movie theater will take over the space currently occupied by Michaels. Officials said the arts and crafts retailer will be moving out of the White Marlin Mall and into a nearby commercial space later this year.

Paul Wenger, president of Flagship Cinemas, said Greenberg Gibbons, owners of the White Marlin Mall, approached the company with an offer to open a location in West Ocean City. This will not be the first entertainment venue to occupy space in the shopping center, however. In years past, for example, a Fox Theater occupied the space that is currently home to the Michaels store.

Just what we need another over priced movie theater. Over priced concessions and nasty facility.

That space was a movie theater originally.
