STURBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — All locations of a New Hampshire-based movie theater company will permanently close locations in Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire after over 20 years of service due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Cinemagic locations closing include:
- Saco, Maine
- Westbrook, Maine
- South Portland, Maine
- Salisbury, Massachusetts
- Sturbridge, Massachusetts
- Hooksett, New Hampshire
- Merrimack, New Hampshire
- Portsmouth, New Hampshire
The chain reopened some of its theaters last summer but Hollywood offerings and crowds were sparse.
Cinemagic’s parent company, Zyacorp Entertainment, announced in early February it was closing all theaters until the spring. Then it announced Sunday that the theaters will not reopen.
Some communities are harder hit than others by the closings. The chain accounted for 30 screens in the Portland, Maine, area leaving a potential void when the pandemic ends.
