West Columbia 7 closed March 16, 2020 along with all of the Goodrich Theatre Circuit’s portfolio. Goodrich then declared bankruptcy ceasing operations.

The theatre opened under new management of GQT Movies Circuit on April 23, 2021 as GQT West Columbia 7. (Mason Asset Management and Namdar Realty Group purchased the bankrupt circuit with partner VIP Cinemas taking over operation of 22 former Goodrich Quality Theatre locations including the Oxford location. GQT Movies' home office is located in Kentwood, Michigan.) This entry should be listed as Formerly Operated by Goodrich Quality Theaters and Operated by GQT Movies.
