National Amusements to close two theaters in the Flint, MI area
FLINT, MI — The National Amusements theater chain has announced they will close two of their multiplexes in the Flint market. The Showcase Cinemas Flint East in Burton will close on September 3 after the last show. The Cinema 10 in Flint Township will also close, but the closing date has not yet been announced.
This will leave National Amusements with three locations in the area: the Showcase Cinemas Flint West, the Courtland Cinemas and the Miracle Twin Drive-in Theatre. The Miracle Twin will close for the season on September 3 and plan to reopen the drive-in (one of two National Amusements still operate) for the 2008 season.
National Amusements stated the Showcase East will close because “operation is no longer financially viable.” The theater chain also faced additional competition with the opening of the NCG Trillum Cinemas in Grand Blanc.
