Photo © Fridley TheatresThe Fridley - Springwood 9 in Ankeny, Iowa has been sold to B & B Theatres effective October 15, 2017, according to a recent post on the Fridley Theatres Facebook page:

Effective October 16th, 2017, we will sell our Springwood 9 Theatres in Ankeny, IA, to B&B Theatres, of Kansas City.

B&B will utilize the Springwood in preparations for the opening of their new theatre in the Prairie Trail development.

It is with regret and sadness that we share this information, after having served the Ankeny community for 28 years.

We sincerely appreciate the loyal patronage of our valued guests. Your dedication has contributed to the success of our company, and more importantly, to the lives of our employees and managers. We’ve truly built more than just business at the Springwood; we’ve built relationships. Thank you for helping us to deliver a hometown theatre experience and to bring the magic of the movies to Ankeny.

Fridley Theatres will continue to be Iowa’s largest locally-owned movie theatre company, and we will maintain a presence in the Des Moines area. Our corporate headquarters is in downtown Des Moines. We operate the recently-renovated Copper Creek Cinemas off of University Ave. in Pleasant Hill. And, we own the Paramount 7 Theatres near the square in Indianola.

We’re also in the final planning stages for our new 15-screen theatre facility in Waukee, which will boast an exclusive IMAX auditorium, multiple in-seat food and beverage theatres, and a full restaurant/bar, among various other amenities. We believe it will be the premier movie house in the state at its opening in late 2018 or early 2019.

We would love to retain your support moving forward. Visit our website for show time information and other updates. Sign up for our Email Newsletter, where we’ll provide weekly show schedules at your inbox. Or, connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Again, thank you.

As always, we’ll see you at the movies.

The theater will be known as the B & B Ankeny Springwood 9 when it opens for business on Friday, October 20th. From the sounds of follow-up replies by Fridley Theatres, the Springwood 9 won't stay open after a new B & B location at the Prairie Trail development is completed, but time will tell. That information is confirmed by a news article published in The Des Moines Register on September 25th that states that the Springwood 9 will close after the new theater opens.

Fridley Theatres continues to operate 21 locations in Iowa and Nebraska. The closest of their locations to the Springwood 9 are the Fridley - Copper Creek Cinemas in Pleasant Hill (~8 miles) and the Fridley - Paramount 7 Theatres in Indianola (~24 miles), so if you have Fridley Theatres gift cards, it's not too far out of your way to use them.
