Ames, IA: Cinemark North Grand 5 Closed

Posted on Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014 2:08 PM by Scott Jentsch

Cinemark logoThe Cinemark North Grand 5 in Ames, Iowa closed on April 19, 2014, according to an article published recently in the Ames Tribune:

April 19 will be the last call for movies at Cinemark North Grand 5.

North Grand 5, a second-run theater located in the North Grand Mall and often referred to as the “dollar theater,” will close after 18 years.

James Meredith, vice president of marketing and communications at Cinemark, said the reason for closing was because the lease was ending. He wouldn’t elaborate on why it wasn’t being renewed. Officials with the company that owns North Grand Mall had said in earlier news release that the decision was a “corporate decision,” made by Cinemark and that the decision was an opportunity for continued investment in revitalizing the “merchant mix at North Grand Mall.”

On Friday, mall officials said they could not elaborate further.
