The Great Escape Princess 4 in Oxford, Ohio closed its doors on November 25, 2012, according to an article that appeared in The Miami Student, the student newspaper of Miami University in Oxford:
The Princess movie theater closed Nov. 25 but it will not remain a sleeping beauty for long. The City of Oxford officials expect the theater will reopen after a transition period, according to Douglas Elliott, city manager, and Alan Kyger, economic development director for the City of Oxford.
According to emails sent by Elliott to the Oxford City Council, The Princess may be donated to the City of Oxford but as of Thursday afternoon other parties expressed interest in purchasing the theater from its current owner, Aliance Entertainment and Great Escape Theatres. City Council will discuss a possible resolution to accept a donation in its next meeting on Dec. 4.

So it would seem that all hope is not lost for the theater once again showing movies, but it will take a concerted effort by all involved, and involvement from the community as well to make it happen. An online effort is already underway with a "Save the Princess" Facebook page.
Until that happens, moviegoers will have to choose from one of the other nearby theaters in which to see movies on the big screen.
Update: It turns out that this theater's closure may have had more to do with the fact that Great Escape was just purchased by Regal Entertainment Group, and a small, four-screen theater wasn't in their plans for future operations.
