Two Sumner families who have lived in the area for more than 30 years combined will be at the helm - Steve Jukes, who bought half the business and building in 2016, and his wife Melanie, along with Aluminé and Murray Kennedy.
The families had been silent partners in the business for the past five years.
Lang Masters, who has owned the cinema for more than 60 years, will still very much be a part of the team, said Aluminé.
"We have big shoes to fill," she said.
Masters turned 90 in April and often still works seven days a week.
"I will miss the theatre, but I’ve been here long enough now," he said.
"I am pleased I’ll still be able to stay on in some capacity though."
Aluminé said: "People will notice little things changing but it will be a long process."
The new owners want the theatre to be community-focused and to meet the needs of people living in the area and visitors who come to Sumner for "a day out".
They have already called out to the community for feedback on the theatre and have received numerous responses, including requests for better soundproofing and heating.
Many people have also offered to volunteer at the cinema.
