The Crescent Theater in Mobile, Alabama is due to close, according to an article published recently in the Lagniappe Weekly:

The Crescent Theater Film Society announced today it will be unable to renew its lease at 208 Dauphin Street, meaning the theater will have to close.

Crescent Theater operator Max Morey confirmed the announcement shared on social media Wednesday afternoon. He said the closure comes after negotiations with the building’s landlord broke down over an increase in rent.

Crescent Theater Film Society board member Carol Hunter said John Switzer, the building’s landlord, was set to raise the rent to $2,200 per month and add an additional $500 per month in building expenses.

If/when the theater closes, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Regal Mobile Stadium 18 and the AMC Jubliee Square 12.
