The new owner/operator may well be Cinemark instead of Carmike; it was just announced that Cinemark is acquiring the Rave properties that were not a part of an earlier sale to Carmike. This may explain why the closing date of this theater was changed.

CSWalczak commented about Continental Art Theatre on Nov 18, 2012 at 3:02 am

The theater’s original name was the Windermere, not Wind-A-Mere, corresponding to its location near the corner of Windermere Street and Euclid Avenue, and perhaps meant to evoke someone’s memory of the Lake Windermere area in England. The name survives as the location of a transit station in East Cleveland.

This articleconfirms the earlier closing date. It seems odd that the closing is being made before the arrival of most of the big holiday films though.

CSWalczak commented about Hollywood Cinemas 9 on Nov 14, 2012 at 6:40 am

If you really read what I wrote, it should be clear that I agree with you that it probably if not definitely will not survive in its present role as a first-run theater. But the owners might make a go of it as a discount house; only time will tell. This has worked in some other places. But unless they can convert to digital, the theater will almost inevitably close as there will be increasingly no product to show.
