Cheaper prices and more family friendly fare are just a few changes coming to the movie theater in Marietta once it becomes the Odyssey 7 At The Lafayette Square.

Currently owned by Regal Cinemas, the theater will change hands April 1st.

Steve Tripp, with Odyssey Theaters, says the first thing people will notice is the attention his company pays to community and its needs.

Tripp says the company plans to be very active in the area with promotions and specials.

He says Odyssey will place an emphasis on families -- from family friendly films to family friendly pricing.

Also, over the summer the theater will also transition to digital projection, become 3-D capable and have new rocker chairs installed.
