Sawmill Theatres Hires New General Manager


The Sawmill Theatres have a new general manager.

Bonnie Weigand, who has served as assistant manager for the past year, became the new general manager this week.


Bonnie Weigand, who has served as assistant manager of Sawmill Theatres for the past year, was promoted to general manager this past week.

"I want to make this a fun place for the employees," she said. "I also want it to have a nice, family-friendly atmosphere."

Weigand said she has children of her own, so she knows the importance of making the theaters a place the entire family can visit and enjoy a movie.

To help make the theaters a family-friendly place, Tuesday will continue to be Family Fun Day, she said. On Tuesdays, admission to all shows, all afternoon and evening is just $3.

Her favorite movies are comedies, but she enjoys just about everything. The selection of films shown at Sawmill Theatres is the decision of the owners, however, not Weigand.

She said theater guests may soon have a new carpet in the lobby to greet them.

"(Installation) won't interfere with their entertainment," she said.

Weigand invites Rim Country movie fans to stop by and say hello. She is at the theaters from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday and Monday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
