The Nova 10 Cinemas Haymarket Square in Des Moines, Iowa closed on May 24, 2012. The Des Moines Register mentions that the theater was closed in a June 7, 2012 blog posting by Patt Johnson:

Nova 10 Cinemas in the Haymarket Square, 4353 Merle Hay Road is closed. It’s unclear whether the theater is closed for good or temporarily.

Signs on the doors indicate it’s a temporary situation. Theater owner Mike Kohen could not be reached for comment.

Signs read: “We are closed for the weekend. For issues with this, contact Mike Kohen, owner of the theater.” It listed a cell phone number with a New York area code and an email address. Kohen didn’t respond to voice mail or email requests for information about the closure. There also is a handwritten sign indicating there is no power at the theater and directed owners to call MidAmerican Energy. A MidAmerican worker said a transformer behind the theaters had been repaired and had knocked out power to the theater. MidAmerican also was unable to speak with Kohen.

Moviegoers in the area can choose from the list of ten theaters within 15 miles that will be happy to serve up movies and concessions to customers.

Originally built in 1986, the theater was last operated by Nova Cinemas, which took over the operation in 2002 after Carmike Cinemas closed it in 2000. It started out with five screens, which grew to eleven, but then was reduced to 10 when Nova Cinemas converted one of the auditoriums into a laser tag arena.
