The Movie Palace Closing
HAMILTON, ONTARIO, CANADA — The Movie Palace closing Thursday Feb. 3rd after six years of operation under its current name. The theatre dates back to the 1930s and operated formerly as the Lyceum and the Mountain.
Owner Dale Barker announced the closing in a news release, but didn’t return calls to say why.
“After nearly 6 years, The Movie Palace will be forced to close their doors this Thursday, Feb 3rd,” he wrote. “It is important for everyone to know that our closure was not from providing the best value in town, or the lack of support from Hamiltonians. We far exceeded single-screen expectations, along with occasionally having greater attendance than the local multiplex.”
