Only operating cinema in Blythe closing

BLYTHE, CA — The All Star Cinemas, formerly the Blythe Cinema 4 is closing as of August 29. The theater, which opened about a decade ago, had been for sale in recent months.

Ramin Hashemi, managing partner of the local movie theater – the All Star Cinemas and Entertainment Center – came to town recently and sadly informed the staff that the curtain will come down on the only movie franchise in the Blythe environs on August 29th. The three-screen theater has been in operation for over a decade, replacing the old Blythe Movie Theatre that closed back in the early ‘90s.

The full story is in the Desert Independent.

The old single screen theater they had in Blythe was the Hub Theater. They also had the Rancho Verde drive in theater.

I think the AC bill each month did them in. Now the people in Blythe CA will find out what’s It like not to have a ‘Cinema’ in town. Maybe someone else will buy the theatre in time for the holiday movie lineup. At least in the winter you don’t need the air conditioner going all the time. They can re build the DI and not worry about the AC. How far will the town folk go now to see a film? Or will they just sit back and not bother saving the Cinema and order DVD’s to watch on the 16x9 TV’s with home a/c. If you like Cactus and HOT weather this may be the place for some new person to get into the theatre business.
