How often do you go to the movies in a local theater?

Poll Description

Central Massachusetts has experienced an uptick in movie theater shut-downs post-pandemic as the rise in digital streaming platforms and changing moviegoer preferences have forced both local and chain theaters to close up shop. Most recently, West Boylston Cinema announced it would be closing its doors for good at the end of May after more than 20 years in business, Fitchburg's Cinema World announced the end of its 28-year run in March, and in 2021, the historic Strand Theater in Clinton permanently closed following a 15-month temporary closure due to COVID. In fact, Worcester no longer has a movie theater to call its own, meaning residents must travel to Blackstone Valley 14: Cinema de Lux in Millbury to view Hollywood’s newest releases.
