Richmond, VA: Regal Westhampton Theatre 2 to Close in 2015

Posted on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 and updated on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 1:18 PM

The Regal Westhampton Theatre 2 in Richmond, Virginia will be closing some time in 2015, according to an article published recently in the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Richmond’s venerable Regal Westhampton Cinemas will close later this year.

Potential redevelopment of the building, combined with possible changes to another building two doors east that now has the same owner, could reshape the popular Libbie and Grove avenues shopping and dining district in Richmond’s West End.

Russ Nunley, vice president of marketing and communications for Regal Entertainment Group, said a closing date for Westhampton hasn’t been set, though he said it would be near the end of the year.

He said the theater has performed poorly for years and that two-screen cinemas struggle to generate enough money to cover the cost of operation.

There are ten theaters listed within ten miles of the Westhampton's location, including the Byrd Theatre, Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas at Movieland, Bow Tie Movieland at Boulevard Square, and Cobb CineBistro @ Stony Point Fashion Park. This means that moviegoers in the area will have plenty of choices, but none will likely deliver the same experience.
