CRESTVIEW — Movies and More's seven former employees and volunteers are removing what they can from the Northview Plaza business that closed April 20.

They are also saying goodbye.

While Wayne Myatt's wife, Tina, worked as the manager, he often volunteered at the theater, promoting  it online and occasionally operating the upstairs film projector.

"I actually didn't mind not getting paid because it was fun and enjoyable," he said.

Myatt said he enjoyed seeing families return on multiple occasions for dinner and a movie, the theater's specialty.

Ticket prices averaged $3 per person, and customers could share pizza, popcorn, hotdogs and other refreshments.

The theatre also hosted birthday parties and school trips since it opened in 2011, Myatt said.
