Tampa, FL: Channelside Cinemas 10 Closes

Posted on Tuesday, September 25th, 2012. Last Updated on Monday, October 22nd, 2012 9:49 AM by Scott Jentsch

The Channelside Cinemas 10 in Tampa, Florida closed on September 25, 2012, according to an article in The Tampa Tribune:

Channelside Cinemas has turned out the lights on its last movie, becoming the latest tenant to close at the troubled complex.

The theater company closed Tuesday night after a long and bitter fight with the landlord managing the property.

"That's it," said theater owner Howard Edelman. "I shut it down and turned in the keys."

Still, Edelman is quick to point out a bright side. Now he can focus on building his next two theaters: One in Carrollwood and another in Riverview, both with high-end robotic seats and gourmet food.

The Channelside shutdown was almost inevitable as the theater had filed bankruptcy last August and couldn't come to terms with the current landlord.

The theater opened in 2000 as a 9-screen Regal Cinemas location. An IMAX theater was added, but then lost the IMAX branding a few years ago (it was then labeled as a "Giant Screen Cinema").

Moviegoers in the area do have other options, including the Tampa Theatre, the Muvico Centro Ybor 20, and four other theaters within five miles of the Channelside location.
