Falmouth, ME: Regal Cinemas Falmouth 10 Closes to Make Way for a WalMart

Posted on Tuesday, April 17th, 2012 2:42 PM by Scott Jentsch

Regal Entertainment Group LogoThe Regal Cinemas Falmouth 10 in Falmouth, Maine closed at the end of March 2012 to make way for a new WalMart store, according to an article in The Forecaster:

The 10-screen Regal Cinemas has closed and will be torn down, paving the way for an expanded Walmart store.

Ben Devine, owner of the Falmouth Plaza at 206 Route 1, said Regal closed at the end of March. He said he negotiated an agreement with Regal to terminate the theater's lease, which will allow the neighboring Walmart to begin construction as early as this summer.

Walmart plans to expand its existing 92,000-square-foot store to a 124,000-square-foot Supercenter, which includes a full grocery store, pharmacy and large garden section.

The renovation requires the demolition of the cinema building.

The theater started out its life as the Hoyts Falmouth 10. Hoyts was purchased by Regal Cinemas in 2003.

Moviegoers in Falmouth have other choices nearby, with nine theaters within 15 miles. The Nordica Theatre in Freeport is mentioned in the article as having an impact on the Regal's business recently.

FYI, this cinema opened as a Flagship as a nine-screen in December 1995. A tiny tenth screen was shoehorned into the cinema before Flagship sold to Hoyts in October 1997.
