This cinema has been permanently closed. Owners of the property have applied for a zoning change and a permit to convert the structure to apartments and retail space.

Joe- Probably just as well. The theatre wasn’t air conditioned and there was some sort of remediation which needed to be done which would have cost $150,000.00.
