South Carolina News


HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) – A South Carolina theater that’s closed because of the coronavirus is making a switch to showing movies online.

Larry Mann and his wife have owned the Park Plaza Cinema on Hilton Head Island for more than a decade. Like other movie theaters in the U.S., they’ve had to shut down amid efforts to prevent the new virus from spreading.

The Island Packet reports the couple revamping the theater’s website to stream films not yet available on platforms such as Netflix. Mann says streaming movies on his site will generally cost about $12.

Initial offerings will include “The Roads Not Taken” starring Javier Bardem and Elle Fanning the rock documentary “Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band.”

“If we could figure out how to get everyone popcorn, we would do that, too,” Mann said.
