Opened by Hoyts on December 17, 1999, then for a while operated by the Boston Culinary Group, it returned to Hoyts in December 2007.

Simsbury’s population is about 23,000 and a small town with lots of open space and a long main strip. I’m surprised there’s an eight-plex in town. On January 1, 2019 it was taken over by Apple Cinemas.

I just noticed yesterday that it was no longer on the BCG website. I guess they must have sold it, but to whom I know not.

Hoyt’s does still operate this location along with two others I think in Maryland. BGC did take over this location and ran it for a while but for some reason Hoyt’s had to take it back over. Hoyt’s has been trying to sell of the theatre but is unable because of some lease issues. I have heard rumors that the landlord may take back the theatre and turn it into retail.

Not too bad of a theater, the screens are kind of small though.

What would the landlord be on to take it back, seriously. Every time I go there it seems to be doing pretty good business.

I used to work here too back in the day

Where are you hearing the rumors of a landlord taking back this theatre?

So this theater is operated by Hoyts who only operates one other theater in the US? Are they still the same Hoyts who is all over Australia?

It is. Hoyt’s now has the same owners as AMC.

This opened on December 17th, 1999, 5 days before the Loews Plainville opened up. I uploaded its grand opening ad in the photo section.
