Kearney, NE: Kearney Cinema 8 Closed

Closed Sign

The Kearney Cinema 8 in Kearney, Nebraska has closed.

Located just north of I-80 along 2nd Avenue, the movie theater's last day of operation was May 16, 2024. The news of the theater's closure was announced on its Facebook page a few days earlier:

It's a sad day for us to have to make this announcement. We will be closing the Kearney Cinema 8 at the End of day, Thursday May 16th 2024. Thank you to all of our customers who have supported us over the many years and thank you to all employees past and present for your loyalty and dedication. We will forever cherish all of the fun times and great memories.

A subsequent press release mentioned that they are "exploring new opportunities for the building particularly in the entertainment field." That's pretty vague, as that could mean a new operator that would reopen it as a movie theater or it could mean that it will be used as a trampoline park or something similar. The theater originally opened in 2007.

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the The World Theatre and the Golden Ticket Cinemas - Hilltop 4 in Kearney and the Sun Theatre in Holdrege.
