Cinema City Closes After 31 Years

HARTFORD, CT — The four-screen arthouse Cinema City has shut down after 31 years in business, according to a report from the Hartford Courant.

Northeast Cinemas acquired the theater from Hoyts in 2003 and had been running it since. The theater was quite shabby and had not been updated or renovated for many years – quite possibly since it opened in 1973.

However, it played art movies that cannot be seen anywhere else in the state of Connecticut. It will be sorely missed.

Actually the theaters that Hoyts US did not sell evolved into Northeast Cinemas. These theaters are now either being sold or closed as leases expire.

Good news! It was announced in the Hartford Courant that the theatre is in fact re-opening under new management as “ART@Cinema City."
