The Chakeres Upper Valley Mall Cinema 5 in Springfield, Ohio closed on February 20, 2017. According to an article published recently in the Springfield News-Sun:

The decision to close the theater is the latest blow to the mall, which has been hit with a steady stream of bad news from national retailers leaving the aging shopping center.

Last week MC Sports, a regional retailer based in Michigan, filed for bankruptcy and said it will begin immediate liquidation sales at all stores, including the Upper Valley Mall. A sign at the store this week said the business is closing. And Christopher and Banks, a national clothing retailer, will move from the mall to Bechtle Avenue.

The movie theater has served customers since the mall opened in 1971, Chakeres said, but declining foot traffic made it impossible to keep the venue open.

“This is our hometown and that’s why we wanted to try to keep the doors open at the theater,” Chakeres said. “In this day and age you just can’t continue to do that. As these other businesses have shuttered their doors, we felt it was time to do that here.”

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Chakeres Cinema 10.
