Winter Weather Affecting Movie Theater Due to Power Surges


The winter weather is causing some issues for a few Kearney businesses being affected by power surges.

Patrons at the Kearney Cinema 8 had their movie experience disrupted several times on Sunday afternoon with some of the power surges lasting about five to 10 seconds.

"Every time the power goes out we have to restart all our projectors and restart all our movie," said manager Taylor Miller, "and we've had to give out about 200 free passes today for people because their movie kept getting interrupted about five times, so it's really affected our business today."

Management says with the vouchers and refunds they had to give customers, the storm cost them some money.
