CHARLOTTE, NC — After 15 years of operation, Eastern Federal has closed the Delta 6. Employees unfortunately were given two days notice. The building and land are for sale/lease.
On a side note, the Delta 6’s sister theater, Movie at the Lake (Hunsterville, NC), sits very close to a recently closed, not yet 5 year-old, independent theater that is now advertising the showtimes and website for EF.

HAYS, KANSAS — According to reports from the Hays Daily News, Dickinson Theaters has closed the Fox II Theater (in downtown Hays, Kansas) and is in negotiations to donate it to the City of Hays. A committee has been formed by the city, and a few ideas on how to preserve the theater have been proposed. An indoor park has been raised as one idea, and also running art and educational films (which Dickinson does not play in their first run houses).
