The Theater Group plans to fill a need, exhibit Mexican films
Springfield , Boise City , Pampa will screen U.S. films too
According to Bill Sheldon, of the Camelot Theater, they and their sister theaters in Springfield , Colo. ., and Pampa , Texas are soon to be on the cutting edge of theatrical releases when they begin screening Mexican films, along with American titles.
The event will kick off in Pampa on Oct. 28 and 29, at 4 and 1 p.m. with a premier of “Entre La Tarde Y La Noche”. In attendance at the film will be some of its stars from Mexico .
According to Sheldon, the small chain, founded and ran by his sons-in-law Troy Swigerath and Jason Scott and their wives, haven't worked out the logistics of when the films will alternate in Springfield and Boise City ; Pampa , a multi-screen theater won't be as much of a problem.
Sheldon said the premier will be featured on Telemundo 36 since The Theater Group is the first chain in the U.S. with plans to cater to a Spanish-speaking clientel as well as screening U.S. titles.
“We'll try to draw from Guymon, Dalhart, Cactus and Dumas”, Sheldon said.
Sheldon said that with the recent purchase of a new projector, the Camelot now has the capability of running feature movies for birthday parties.
“Also we've been thinking about having movie marathons, like a John Wayne marathon, sell tickets and then show several one right after another.”
