The Screenland Plaza 8 in St. Joseph, Missouri will be closing after the last movies play on Sunday, March 2, 2014.
The theater's web site has the following message posted from manager Joshua Hall:
Coming Soon: The Last Weekend Ever Here At Plaza – Friday, February 28th through Sunday, March 2nd.
Change is inevitable and Change has come to Plaza. Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 will be the final day of operations here at the theater. 35mm is the past and Digital Cinema is the now, we are no long at a crossroads of the two.
We’ll be closed Monday through Thursday this week as we spiff the place up nice for The Last Weekend Ever Here At Plaza. We’re gonna have some great surprises leading up to Sunday nights Oscars and there’ll be a chance for those that would like to purchase a theater seat or take home a piece of history to do so after we close up shop.
It’s been incredibly humbling to be part of a local legacy. On behalf of the Durwood Family who gave this town all these good years, on behalf of the Screenland Guys Butch, John and Jeff who kept that dream going for the people and on behalf of the staffs and names that have come before mine, Mike, David, Justin and Cody, thanks for coming to the movies.
Change doesn’t have to be bad, it lets us move on, learn from the mistakes, cherish the good times. I myself will never forget when I had a theater of my very own, even if it was for only a little while. – Joshua
After the Plaza 8 closes, the only movie theater in St. Joseph will be the Regal Hollywood Stadium 10 - St. Joseph, which does not show second-run movies at discounted prices. An adult evening ticket there costs $10 and kids and seniors are $7.
