This five screener is located in a shopping center on Williams Street. Nice large lobby and well appointed interior, and staggered steaing for unobstructed view. Kerasotes does a great job on maintaing their theatres. With this theatre being opened in 1973 it does not show. They offer online ticketing with ticket prices ranging from $4.75 to a top evening price of $6.50. They also offer free refills on the soft drinks and pop corn. My last visit to this theater I was very impressed the the theatre manager as he greeted a lot of the patrons as they entered the theatre. It was closed in 2011.

What looks to be the final engagements in the theatre’s history: Courageous, J. Edgar, Jack and Jill, Sarah’s Key, The Thing and The Way (the last two playing on the same screen).

Has anyone heard anything about the future of the theater after it closes?

Went there two days ago, and the presentation was fair but certainly not great. Staff seemed joyful?

I imagine an independent will pick it up. The Cape West will become the only game in town and with Cape Girardeau being a college town that’s more or less isolated, a second theatre would make sense.

It could reopen as a second-run house.

It’s closed for good now.

Went by there today; they’re gutting the building. I picked up four screens and 15 surround speakers that were headed for the dumpster. Chairs are getting tossed tomorrow. I suppose Cape is a one-theater town now.
