REEDSBURG, WI — Despite news to the contrary, the Star Cinema will not reopen. Instead, it will be used as a storage facility for the time being.

Despite rumors that it would reopen, the Star 6 Cinema in downtown Reedsburg has officially been closed. City Building Inspector Art Biesek received a memo from Steve Carpenter, an employee of the business, breaking the news Thursday.

“I just got word today that the Star Cinema in Reedsburg will not be reopening,” the memo said. “The cost of the reopening can’t be justified in light of the theater’s attendance history.”

Much of this area had been hit hard by the June, 2008 floods. The nearby Mid-Contintent Railway Museum was closed by the floods and which each passing day, it gets more and more doubtful that it will ever re-open.
