The City Cinemas East 86th St. in New York, New York has closed. Located between 2nd and 3rd Avenues on the Upper East Side of the city, the theater was operated by City Cinemas.

According to an article published recently in the Upper East Side Patch, the theater's closure took everyone by surprise, including the staff:

A movie theater that showed both independent and mainstream films and offered dedicated screenings for mothers with babies closed suddenly this week on the Upper East Side.

Signs reading "theater closed" and "the end" are posted in the windows of City Cinemas on East 86th Street between Third and Lexington avenues. The marquee that used to display show times is now completely blank.

City Cinemas closed on Monday to the surprise of both neighborhood residents and the theater's employees. An employee who answered the theater's phone Friday, but did not want to give his name, said the staff was not given advance notice of the closing. When asked whether staff will be relocated to other City Cinemas locations in the neighborhood he said: "I don't know any information about that I just know that we're closed."

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the AMC Loews Orpheum 7 and the Beekman Theatre, which is operated by City Cinemas. The company also operates the City Cinemas Cinemas 1 2 and 3, City Cinemas Village East Cinema, and the Paris Theatre.
