Regal closes Southland 7 in Marion
MARION, OH — The Southland Cinema 7 operated by Regal since 1994, was closed on December 5. The theater was located at the Marion Centre Mall, which is facing foreclosure proceedings in January.
Regal Cinemas decided not to renew its lease, which ends in December, and to vacate the 1415 Marion-Waldo Road site, Gallagher said. The company has operated the movie theater since 1994, when it expanded it to a seven-screen cinema complex. The theater opened under the operation of Cinema Centers Corp. of Boston.
She said she did not have information regarding whether Regal Cinemas had any plans to open a theater elsewhere in the Marion area. She said she had no response to whether her company’s decision to close the cinema was related to the mall being in foreclosure.
