Valdosta, GA: VSU Closer to Purchasing GTC Ashley 8 Cinemas

Posted on Thursday, December 1st, 2011 and updated on Tuesday, March 11th, 2014 3:27 PM

The GTC Ashley 8 Cinemas in Valdosta, Georgia is getting closer to being purchased by Valdosta State University, according to a recent article in The Spectator:

Ashley Cinemas, Valdosta’s $1.99 theatre, might one day be no more when VSU’s purchase of the theatre becomes finalized.

VSU’s proposal to purchase Ashley Cinemas for various possibilities such as parking space, lecture halls and even for demolition was approved in September by the University System of Georgia Board of Regents.

“We have to look at the way the campus is growing,” Phil Gunter, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs said in The Spectator February article “VSU pursues purchase of Ashley Cinemas”.

“(Ashley Cinemas) is a valuable piece of land.”

More definite plans will form when VSU closes the sale but for now the purchase has not been finalized, according to Thressea Boyd, assistant to the president for communications.

The school does plan to lease the theatre from the Georgia Theater Company and keep it in business for the time being.
