A movie theater in Rochester, Minnesota will be closing in August. Located on the northwest corner of the West Circle Drive interchange with Highway 14, the Odyssey Cinemas - Hollywood 12 is closing August 22, 2024. The movie theater opened in 2002 and was previously known as the CineMagic Hollywood Luxury Stadium 12 and CineMagic Hollywood 12.

In the announcement released by the theater's owner, Bryan Sieve, President of Odyssey Cinemas, was quoted as saying:

We have cherished the opportunity to serve the Rochester community and are deeply grateful for the patronage and memories we’ve shared. It’s been an honor to be part of your entertainment experiences.

The announcement mentions that Odyssey Cinemas elected not to renew the lease with the landlord. If you have gift cards or passes for the theater, you should use them before it closes. They can be used at other Odyssey Cinemas locations.

Odyssey Entertainment currently operates seven locations in Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Many of the locations were known formerly under the CineMagic Theatres brand.

We visited the Rochester area and this theater in 2011, and we have several photos from that visit in the Photo Gallery for the theater.


The movie theater is still operating until August 22. To see what's playing and when, please visit the Showtimes page for the Odyssey Cinemas - Hollywood 12.

After that date, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Gray Duck Theater & Coffeehouse and the CMX Chateau.
