BURLINGTON, NC — Leaving many questions marks, the West End Cinemas has been sold to a local sock manufacturer with no clear plans except that it won’t be a theatre.

After being vacant for about nine months, the West End Cinemas property on South Church Street has been bought by a local sock manufacturer.

According to records filed with the Alamance County Register of Deeds earlier this month, Burlington-based Carolina Hosiery Mills Inc. paid Carousel Cinemas LLC $1.85 million for the 5.6 acres. Of that, 37,798 square feet comprise the heated area once used by the movie theater.

But don’t expect to see a movie shown there or a sock outlet being put at that location.
