New life in the form of a fan-favorite movie theater is coming to Ventnor in the near future.

On Monday it was announced on Harbor Square Theatre's official Facebook page that the movie chain is coming to Ventnor in Summer 2019.

The theater will be in same spot as the Ventnor Twin Theatre, which has been closed down since 2004.

The Ventnor Twin is the last remaining movie theater on Absecon Island. The other movie theaters have either burned down over the years or were demolished. It started originally as a single screen theatre and was changed later in the ‘70s into a twin.

The plan going forward is to bid for a liquor license and purchase the buildings next door, including the one that has Sack 'o Subs.

Don’t worry, Sack O's isn't going anywhere, it will remain. The small building on the other side though could be demolished to make room for a parking lot.

Expect it to be open for Summer 2019.
