Colusa Theatre in danger of closing

COLUSA, CA — One of the dwindling number of single screen, smaller town theaters, the 1931 Colusa Theatre is reportedly near to closing due the adverse economy, the pull of newer theaters in Yuba City, and the scarcity of solid hit movies this summer. The owner is thinking of converting the theater to a multi-use venue.

“We’re just getting more money from the same people,” he said.

Wilkinson said the downturn in the economy and competition from the Yuba City movie cineplexes are the major factors for closing.
