Kentucky and DC each lose a multiplex

According to their respective chains' websites, both the Phoenix Theaters' Union Station 9 and the Nova Cinemas' Theatres of Georgetown at the Factory Stores of America center in Georgetown, KY have both closed. The Union Station 9 was opened in 1988 by AMC as part of the rejuvenation project at the station and was spun of to the Phoenix circuit after the AMC/Loew’s merger. The closing had appeared imminent over the last several months.

The 7-screen Theatres of Georgetown only operated for a few years and is apparently a victim of the recession, according to this brief item at Kentucky.com.

to bad about the Union Station theatres, it was kind of fun to see a movie at a train station – but depending on the film, the audience’s behaviour could be a deterent.
