New movie chain coming to Mesa

A new movie chain called "Pictureshow" is coming to Superstition Springs to replace the Super Saver Cinema. Interestingly enough, the company is owned by a former Cinemark exec. If you recall, Cinemark made its first foray into the valley in Mesa with their theaters at Riverview.

While they are not direct competition, with Cinemark doing first runs and Pictureshow focusing on discount runs, its fun to wonder if Mesa is going to be a hotbed for some heated personal competition. The story is not clear on if the exec left on good or bad terms, so, we'll have to wait and see. However, its nice to see some cheap entertainment alternatives gaining life in the midst of this sagging economy.
