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.

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.
