The future of the Centre Cinema in Rugby, North Dakota when owner David "DJ" Anderson stated earlier this year that he intended to close the theater by the end of the year and put the theater up for sale.
According to an article published in Pierce County Tribune on December 24, 2012, the theater has been purchased by the Rugby Job Development Authority, with the intention of keeping the theater in operation and performing upgrades necessary to keep it running:
After theater owner and operator David "DJ" Anderson announced his intention to close the Centre Cinema at the end of the year and put the building up for sale, a public meeting drew more than 80 people determined to keep it open.
A steering committee of around 25 people was developed after a Nov. 27 community meeting on how to save the theater.
At its first meeting, the steering committee showed a desire to have the JDA purchase the building to ensure it would stay a theater, regardless of how it was operated in the future.
In purchasing the theater, the JDA would also gain the right to the Lyric Theater name, which is owned by Anderson. Anderson also told Foster he would assist with the transfer of the theater and training new staff.
The main question debated at the meeting wasn't whether to purchase the building, but what would be the best way to operate the theater moving forward.
