Cinemark LogoThe CineArts @ Palo Alto Square in Palo Alto, California is expected to close in August 2016, according to a recent article published by Palo Alto Weekly:

in that has operated the theater since it took over from Landmark in 2001. A company spokesman said Tuesday that the lease on the theater is set to expire in late August and the company had determined that the theater required costly upgrades. Rather than investing in the theater, the company decided not to renew the lease.

"The market has changed and the theater has gotten older," said James Meredith, Cinemark's vice president for communication. "A big amount was needed to be invested to update the theater and that just made it cost prohibitive."

Though Meredith could not say the exact date when the theater is closing, other sources familiar with the closure suggest it can come in early August. Between July 23 and 28, the theater is scheduled to screen movies for the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. After that, it is expected to stay open for one week before shuttering for good.
