Regal won’t reopen Bellevue Cinema 12; property now for sale

NASHVILLE, TN —– The Regal Entertainment Group has decided not to reopen the Bellevue Cinema 12 and has placed the property up for sale. The theater, extensively flood-damaged in May of 2010, had been purchased by Regal last September; prior to the flood and closing Regal had leased the building. The purchase had raised hopes that the theater would reopen.

“I think there’s still a possibility for it to open once the mall is developed, but with the uncertainty it was hard for that to happen,” Crafton said. “Everybody’s affected by it, not just the customers and residents, but the the man that delivers the candy and Coke and the businesses around that theater.”

The story is in the Tennessean.

This theater had a photo taken by a local TV station from the helicopter showing flood waters up to the bottom of the buildings front marquee. This leads me to believe that anything on the floor below the projection booth is a worthless total loss..

The picture is a screen shot from the tv from a flooding video that was on tv during the floods. I don’t know how to post it w/out a link.
