Lakes 12 Theater to open Friday June 15


BAXTER — Moviegoers can breathe a sigh of relief.

The summer movie season is back in business in Baxter. At least eight screens out of 12 are expected to be up and running for a June 15 reopening. The former Movies 10 theater closed for a major renovation, which basically gutted the interior to create stadium seating. The two newly constructed auditoriums on the building’s west side will be open by the Fourth of July.
