IMLAY CITY, MI — The Cinema III, first opened in 1980 and closed in 2007 has reopened under new ownership as the Imlay City Cinemas. The new owner, Remo Querciagrossa, noticed the for sale sign while motorcycle riding. After buying the cinema, he replaced the roof, repainted the interior and upgraded the projection and sound equipment.

I hope he doesn’t lose his shirt. Last year I reported on theater after theater where this scenario took place: nice guy buys theater, sinks tens of thousands of dollars into it, then closes anywhere from 11 to 20 months later. Michigan is experiencing a severe economic downturn. There’s obviously a good reason the original owners closed up shop in 2007. I hope he figures out a way to make it work.
