Since 1934 residents of the town of Murphy, North Carolina have been coming to the Henn Theatre to enjoy the big screen. While the cost of a ticket has gone up since then people still come to the theater to enjoy a nice night out or an afternoon adventure. Today, with progress continuing to move through the area, the theater is getting a some modern features to ensure that it stays one of the best places to visit within Cherokee County.
Recent renovations to the Henn Theatre include a new surround sound system to make sure each and every ticket holder feels like they are right in the middle of the action. Concessions are also a new feature of the facility. It is now possible to enjoy a drink or a snack while taking in a show. The area is slowly expanding, working to maintain the historical value while pairing it with the technology necessary to keep guests coming in. That includes the recent change in payment options. Now movie goers can pay with the debit or credit cards!
On March 12, the Henn Theatre had a set back when fire destroyed some of the property. But residents know that nothing can keep the Henn Theatre down. Since then the facility has received new flooring and curtains. The next set of plans involves the creation of the Henn Memory Area. Before or after seeing a recently released film patrons can stop by and learn more about PJ Henn, the theater’s founder as well as the theater itself.
