Lady’s Island movie theater shuts its doors

BEAUFORT, SC — The Lady’s Island Cinema will cease its film showing operations but stay open to serve other purposes.

The owners of Lady’s Island Cinema shut its doors as a public movie theater last month, hoping to seize an opportunity to rent the property for other uses.

Trask Development’s L. Paul Trask Jr., manager of the building at 100 Sea Island Parkway, said Wednesday the decision to close the 11-year-old, family-owned business stemmed from a desire to make the location “available to other groups for meetings and so forth,” and was not due to any financial hardships at the theater.

Trask pointed out that two area churches — The Parish Church of St. Helena, an Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina congregation, and the Waters Edge United Methodist Congregation — will continue existing leases to use the facility.
