Elk Rapids Cinema Reopens

May 20, 2023

It has been almost four months since the last movie played at Elk Rapids Cinema. The theater’s owner, Joe Yuchasz, passed away in January after operating the cinema for nearly 50 years, and for a while, it seemed the single-screen movie house would remain dark. But the cinema announced the curtain will rise again Memorial Day weekend with screenings of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. In a press release, Yuchasz’s niece, Mary Vasquez, said, “Our Uncle Joe loved Elk Rapids, and bringing culture and entertainment to the village was important to him. The best way our family can honor his legacy is by keeping the theater open.” (Pro tip: Tickets are $7 for kids 11 and under and $9 for everyone else, but note that their website says credit and debit cards are not accepted.) Elk Rapids Cinema is located at 205 River St. in Elk Rapids. For more information about the reopening, visit elkrapidscinema.com or call (231) 264-8601.
