Third Thursday, Upstreet Pittsfield’s award-winning street festival final event of the season included the unveiling of The Beacon Cinemas mascot Rodeo and the new deluxe electronic reclining seating in Theatre #4. Hundreds of patrons came to meet Rodeo and take tours the new layout. “Wow! I can’t wait to see a picture here.” said one person, others commented on how easy the seats recline with a touch of a button, how comfortable there are. But the big questions was “I guess the prices are going to go up.” Well the answer is NO!. Ticket prices will not go up. The Beacon will remain a better value than its competitor.
(PITTSFIELD, MA) – The Beacon Cinema will be rolling out the red carpet at Discover Pittsfield’s September 21st Third Thursday event. The Cinema management and staff will welcome their new Mascot Rodeo. Rodeo is the Beacons new mascot donkey featured in their recent advertising campaign promoting the addition of the new large electronic reclining seats renovation. He is a therapy equine. Rodeo will be available for photos opportunities and autographs (depending on his mood). Tours of the new seating will be offered by the Beacon staff between 5 and 7PM. Rodeo comes to the Beacon from Berkshire HorseWorks, Inc. a not for profit organization, providing Equine Therapy for individuals and groups. Founded in late summer 2013 by Hayley Sumner, a NY/CA transplant and cancer survivor. Berkshire Horseworks is located in Richmond, MA. More information can be found at berkshirehorseworks.org About The Beacon Cinema The Beacon Cinema is an independent movie theater first opened to the public November 2009. The realization of this project came from a multi million dollar renovation of the Kinnell-Kresge building by developer Richard Stanley. The high tech- all digital cinema offers first-run films, state of the art seating and beer and wine. Web site: thebeaconcinema.com
