Sometimes change is a good thing.

Not only will people now have more time to get tickets for the Pennsylvania premier of “Greencastle” the film which will benefit G-A MAAX, the venue for the showing will be improved with state-of-the-art audio and visual systems.

G-A MAAX and Rags to Riches productions have decided to delay the planned Sept. 15 showing of the movie in the Greencastle-Antrim High School auditorium because of a private donation that will upgrade the audio and visual systems in the facility.

G-A MAAX spokesperson, Andrea MCauley, said, “Because of this upgrade and renovation to the auditorium's audio/visual system, G-A MAAX and Rags to Riches Productions have decided to postpone the Pennsylvania premier of the film so that it can be screened using this brand new equipment.

“We want the audience to experience the film in this high tech environment so everyone has the best viewing experience. This is proof that the arts are alive and well in Greencastle and we are thrilled!”

The new date of the showing will be Feb. 9, 2013. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on this date.

“We apologize for the inconvenience, but are certain you will have a better viewing experience on the new system,” explained McCauley.

McCauley said those who purchased tickets already can be upgraded to reserve seating at no charge, but contact must be made to gamaax@comcast.net so that new tickets can be sent.

If any ticketholder desires a full refund, the request can be made at the same email address.
