Multiplex grand opening set for Oct. 25

Free community screenings scheduled in days before opening

The new five-screen movie theater in Logansport will start offering current movies Oct. 25 with free screenings of recently released films in the days leading up to the grand opening, a press release from the multiplex's manager states.

Mary Max Cinemas Logansport 5, located at 3910 Lexington Road, will kick off a week-long celebration with an invitation-only VIP ribbon-cutting ceremony for city and county leaders Oct. 21. The theater will open to the public the following day with free screenings of recently released movies included with complementary soft drinks and popcorn through Oct. 24.

While these shows are free of charge, the press release suggests a donation of $2 per person that will go to the Cass County 4-H Association, Logansport Babe Ruth League and the music departments of Cass County high schools.

Richard Dieffenbach, general manager of the theater, said more information on when and what movies will be screening will be available in the coming weeks at and its Mary Max Cinemas Logansport 5 Facebook fan page.

The week-long event leads up to the grand opening Oct. 25, when the multiplex will start screening current movies. Early bird shows before noon, which Dieffenbach said will likely only be offered on Saturdays and Sundays, will be $4.50 for all ages. Matinee shows between between noon and 6 p.m. will be $6 for all ages. Evening shows after 6 p.m. for ages 12 to 59 will be $8.50 on Fridays and Saturdays and $8 Sunday through Thursday, $6.50 for moviegoers 60 and older on all nights, $6 for ages 6 through 11 on all nights and $7.50 for members of the U.S. military on all nights. All shows for moviegoers 5 and younger will be $4.50.

Free refills on all sizes of popcorn, soft drinks and slushes will be available as well.

After construction delays throughout the summer, the theater's three auditoriums with 29-foot-wide screens and seating for about 75 and two auditoriums with 40-foot screens with seating for about 200, all with stadium seating equipped with high-back rocker chairs, will be ready for films and visitors in just more than two weeks' time, the release states.
