The Marcus Safari Cinema in Moorhead, Minnesota closed in March 2020 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. The nationwide closure of theaters is temporary, but some theaters likely will not show movies again, even once conditions improve. Such is the case for the Safari Cinema, which has been sold to Ignite Church, according to a message posted on the church's Facebook page:

We are excited to announce that our church has a permanent home!

We have officially agreed to purchase the Safari Theater building and will be closing on it soon. Thank you for all the prayers and support leading up to this moment.

Encounter God. Impact the World!

Located just southeast of I-94 and Route 75 (8th Street S) across the Red River from Fargo, North Dakota, the seven-screen movie theater was the CEC - Safari 7 Discount when it was purchased by Marcus Theatres Corporation in 2007. Since that time, it has been known as the Marcus Safari 7 Discount and Marcus Safari Value Cinema.

According to our records, it opened in 1972 as a two-screen movie theater. If you have any details or memories of this theater, please let us know in the comments section!

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Fargo Theatre, the Marcus West Acres Cinema, and the Marcus Century Cinema in Fargo, North Dakota.
