Families who live in the Madras area now have a local theater to enjoy. The "Madras Cinema 5" is now open and the community celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday. Spokesperson for the company, Linda Benjamin says the owner Chuck Natvasil has several theaters around Oregon and enjoys bringing entertainment to smaller communities. She says the community approached him about coming to Madras and they've been very well-received there: “Absolutely. I've been visiting a lot of the businesses in the area. And because we're just opening and want people to check out our theater we're doing a lot of discounted movie passes. So if anyone wants to go to Facebook and “Like” us at Madras Cinema 5, I have gone in there and listed all the different merchants in the area, and you can go visit those merchants." Benjamin says they also plan to do community events and birthday parties and movies for families with special needs kids. The theater owner is a retired school principal who grew up outside of Portland in Scappoose.
