Kings Island Movie Theater Closes the Doors!

Movie ProjectorKings Island Movie Theater Closes the Doors!

Last night we drove by the Kings Island movie theater and thought it odd the movie listing billboard was empty.  Since it was Thursday night we just assumed that they were getting ready to put up the Friday schedules.  This same theater used to be Showcase Cinemas until Rave bought them a couple of years ago.

We'd been noticing the decline at the theater for some time.  The parking lot rarely had large crowds, and we'd personally started going to the Regal Cinema in Mason.  Stadium seating, better chairs, snacks and overall quality experience improvement.  Obviously we'd had a lot of company in our alternative theater choice.

Reading the Cincinnati Enquirer today it turns out that last night was the finale for that location to show movies.  With the preference for stadium seating and the cost to upgrade to digital movies, it was more cost effective for the chain to close the location and sell to a local church in need of a new home.

So next time you're planning to head out to the movies, DON'T head to the Kings Island Rave and expect to catch a flick!
