Sparta, NJ: AmericanPlace Sparta Theatres Closes, But May Reopen in Two Weeks Under New Ownership

Posted on Thursday, March 17th, 2011 11:22 AM by Scott Jentsch

The New Jersey Herald is reporting that the AmericanPlace Sparta Theatres in Sparta, New Jersey closed suddenly on Tuesday, March 15, 2011, but may reopen in as little as two weeks:

The Sparta Theatre will be closed for the next two weeks before reopening under new management, according to a representative of the developer that owns the building housing the theater.

The three-screen movie theater, located downstairs in the two-story complex on Woodport Road that also contains Panera Bread and Rita's Italian Ice, abruptly closed Tuesday but will reopen Friday, April 1, said Luciano Bruni, a builder with Nouvelle Associates, which owns the complex.

John Monsport, owner of AmericanPlace Movies, which operated the Sparta Theatre, said he closed the theater because his company "couldn't make a go of it." Monsport, whose company also operates a movie house in Flemington, declined to comment further on the circumstances that led to his decision to close the Sparta location.
