Northampton theater to close
NORTHAMPTON, MA — The Pleasant Street Theater is slated to close soon as the new owner has no intentions to maintain its business.
The Pleasant Street Theater, Northampton’s last remaining venue for first-run movies, will show its last film sometime within the next two months and close its doors, its owner said today.
Robert Lawton, who owns the business with his wife Julie, said he is in the process of selling the building at 27 Pleasant Street that houses two small theaters. Lawton declined to say who is buying the building but said the new owner does not intend to get into the movie business.
“He would be happy to have a movie theater there, but he doesn’t want to run it himself,” Lawton said.
