The Regal Delray Beach 18 in Delray Beach, Florida will be closing soon, according to an article published recently in the Sun Sentinel:
The smell of movie popcorn won't be coming from the Regal Delray Beach 18 theater much longer.
The movie theater located at 1660 S. Federal Highway is closing it's doors, and an LA Fitness is slated to open in its place.
The question is when.
For now, the theater remains open for moviegoers.
"Our status has not changed, said Russ Nunley, vice president of marketing and communications of Regal Entertainment Group. "We operate the theater and look forward to continuing operating there."
He said any change of tenants is decided by Ramco-Gershenson, the landlord of the Plaza of Delray, where the theater is located.
A property brochure on Ramco-Gershenson's website shows the LA Fitness as the tenant where the theater currently stands. No one from the company could be reached for comment Thursday.
The ousting of the theater by the gym isn't something that came up overnight.
"We have approved plans for the LA Fitness Center to demolish the existing Regal Cinemas," said Candi Jefferson, a senior planner with Delray's Planning and Zoning Department.
She said the gym appeared before the Site Plan Review and Appearance Board on Feb. 27 with a plan to demolish the cinema and build its facility.
On April 22, the gym received the green light to carry out its demolition plans by receiving a site plan certification.
She said the business is currently in the building permit process, and construction can begin at any time.
