HAFB movie theater reopens

HILL AIR FORCE BASE — The Base Theater is up and running better than ever.

The Base Theater shows fairly new released movies for free.

There is a snack bar that helps support initiatives of the base’s First Four organization. These snacks are sold for quite a bit less than other local movie theaters.

Three different movies every Saturday at noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Keep your eyes posted on the Marquee on the side of the theater for what movies will be shown.
