The Regal River Oaks Cinema 8 in Decatur, Alabama closed December 16, 2012, according to an article published that day in the Decatur Daily:

Today is your last chance to see a movie at the Regal River Oaks Cinema 8.

The theater is closing its doors today, marking the end of a 22-year run.


Regal has kept the closure quiet. There was no signage posted on the theater leading up to today. Employees wouldn't comment, diverting all questions to a Regal Entertainment Group corporate answering machine that didn't return calls made since Thanksgiving until Friday morning.

Corporate communications representatives for the Knoxville-based theater chain also did not answer queries about the theater's closing.

Show times for the theater on websites such as Fandango aren't listed for any day after today, and Johnson said he attended a closing party for the theater near Thanksgiving during which the closing date was announced. And all of the films currently playing are holdovers from previous weeks.

When the Carmike 12 - Decatur Mall was announced in November 2011 (read the Journal article), we wondered how the mall was going to support 20 screens (the Carmike 8 - Decatur plans to close when the new Carmike opens), and I guess this is the answer to that question. The new theater was supposed to open this fall, but the above article does mention that it should open in late January or early February 2013.
