Barnstorm theater should reopen to accommodate The Villages’ growing population

To the Editor:

I 100 percent agree with the reopening of the Barnstorm Theater. I like commuting by golf cart, including going to the movies. It’s a 45-minute drive to Sumter Landing. That’s too much drive time for a movie. However, Barnstorm Theater is a 25-minute drive, which is acceptable. I typically go to 2-3 movies/month. But have only gone to four movies in the three years I have lived in The Villages. The current population south of State Road 44 supports the need to reopen the teater. Let us not forget Eastport and Middleton, and beyond.
