East Falmouth, MA: Falmouth Cinema Pub Closes

Photo copyright 2008 SVJ Designs, LLC.The Cape Cod Times is reporting that the Falmouth Cinema Pub in East Falmouth, Massachussetts is now closed. The theater had just opened in December after a major remodeling.

Owner Christopher Ballarino told the publication that the closure is at least temporary, but would offer no further comment about why the theater closed. Another of Ballarino's businesses, restaurant Ma Glockner's in Bellingham, has also closed.

For movie fans in the East Falmouth area, the closest options are now the Regal Cinemas Mashpee Commons 6 in Mashpee and the Regal Cinemas Nickelodeon 5 in North Falmouth. Both are located about five miles from the Falmouth Cinema Pub.

I visited the East Falmouth area this summer and took the photo above of the Falmouth Cinema Pub on a Sunday afternoon. There were plenty of people entering the theater, so it seemed like a good place for area residents and tourists to take in a movie.

The article mentions that the conversion to the cinema pub concept reduced the theater's six screens down to three, and that may have contributed to its demise. While the cinema pub idea is a good one in the right area (and I think they were in the right area), many theaters with less than 6-8 screens struggle to have a wide enough variety of movies to satisfy a broad range of moviegoers.

In early August, we invited the Falmouth Cinema Pub to join our list of Featured Theaters so that they could attract more customers. Too bad for them, and for area movie fans, that they didn't take us up on it. We could have helped them...
