Regal closing multiplex near Myrtle Beach, SC
MURRELLS INLET, SC — Regal Entertainment announced the closing of its twelve-screen theater in the Inlet Square Mall, south of Myrtle Beach. The theater chain claims that announced improvements to the mall were not made; the mall’s previous owner claims that Regal owes back rent.
The final day of operation for Regal Inlet Square 12 will be this Sunday, said Russ Nunley, vice president of marketing & communications for Regal Entertainment Group.
“We regret that our landlord’s announced improvements to the mall have not come to fruition,” he said. “Regal has terminated the lease due to the negative impact on our business from the stalled renovation project for the mall.”
Inlet Square has been in mid construction since late 2007, when a $4.5 million renovation stopped abruptly.
