Cinema 8 Lansing

This cinema was operated by the M & R chain when it opened August 5, 1998. It was later taken over by Loews/Sony Theaters in the early-1990’s.

In the late-1990’s Loews/Cineplex closed the theater because of bankruptcy issues.

The former River Run has recently been acquired by new owners, who have renovated and remodeled the eight-plex and are have reopened the theater, showing first-run films, renamed the Lansing Cinema 8. It was taken over by Carmike in September 2014. By 2016 it had been renamed Digiplex Lancing 8. It was taken over by NewVision Theatres and was closed on March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. The closure was made permanent on July 13, 2020 when NewVision Theatres went out of business.

It would be nice if the movies were listed online everyday, but the listings are not. I have to take a drive up there to see whats playing. If I call the box office I’m told that I can go to the web site (which is always under construction) to get movie info. Hmmmmm. I guess one day everything will be listed and the tickets will be availabe online again…..Still Waiting…..

I do not remember River run theatre being open in the 1980’s as the landings opened in 1985 and did not have a theatre as yet. i do remember River run opening in the early 90’s. I use to walk in the same field this theatre is in to get to Wards and Service Merchandise. I watched as they built this theatre.

Starting today 12 hours from now Cinema 8 will no longer Carmike’s ownership, as a new owner New Vision Theaters will take over. I will upload some photos I took yesterday at the cinema after I saw Kong, including a photo with a paper notice about ownership changes taped inside the theater for moviegoers to see.
