Nova 8 in Naperville closes

Nova Theatres has closed the Nova 8 in Naperville, IL. But don’t worry cinemagoers. It will soon show movies again. Per Nova’s website, “We regret to inform our valued patrons, that the Nova 8 Cinemas is now closed. The Theater will undergo extensive renovations, and re-open as a Hollywood Blvd in the coming months.”

The Nova 8 was opened by Cineplex-Odeon in 1992 as the Westridge Court. It became a Loews-Cineplex after the merger, but was closed in 2001 when that chain filed for bankruptcy. Nova Cinemas reopened it a year later as the Nova 8. Competition from the soon to open Kerasotes Theatres at Fox Valley may have been a factor in the decision to close this place.

The Theater will undergo extensive renovations, andd re-open as a Hollywood Blvd in the coming months.
