The Cameo Theater in Magnolia, Arkansas will close August 12, 2012, according to an article published by the Magnolia Reporter:

Magnolia was struck with a double blow to its entertainment and dining options this weekend with announcements of the pending closures of the Cameo Theatre and Amigo Juan restaurant.

An announcement on the Cameo’s outdoor marquee said it will close permanently on Sunday, August 12. The restaurant will close Sunday.

Daniel Hill, vice president of operations for Stars Motion Picture Corporation, said the decision to close the Cameo was a difficult decision. Seven part-time employees will lose their jobs. The decision, Hill said, was "in the best interest of Stars Motion Picture Corp."

There are no plans to sell or lease the building to any other party, and Stars has no plans to build a modern theater in Magnolia.

"We thank the people of Magnolia and the surrounding areas for their support of the Cameo for many years. Although the building is closing, many good memories will remain alive in the hearts and minds of those who have visited us over the years," Hill said.

The three-screen Cameo is owned by Stars, its second owner since long-time Magnolia motion picture theater owner W.P. Florence Jr. retired in 2000 from the business his family built in 1949.

The theater has closed twice in the past decade – once for remodeling after Florence retired, and again for an extended period before it was acquired by Stars, which also operates a multi-screen theater in El Dorado.

The Cameo’s closure marks an end to 87 years of movie houses in Magnolia.
