Twin Falls, ID: Interstate Amusements to Close Theaters

Posted on Tuesday, May 27th, 2014 4:53 PM

Interstate Amusements will be closing its theaters in Twin Falls, Idaho, according to a recent news article published by the Times-News:

After almost 50 years in business, Interstate Amusements has decided to shutter its Twin Falls theaters. “We decided we’re going to be closing,” Vice-President Byron Kluss told the Times-News Wednesday.

The Orpheum Theatre, in downtown Twin Falls, will close May 26. The Twin Cinema 12, on Kimberly Road, and the nearby Motor Vu Drive-In will close May 29.

The decision comes weeks after the company’s long-time managing director Larry Roper announced he would retire due to health reasons.

With Roper’s decision, Interstate’s six stockholders began to consider the future of the theaters.

The company closed the Grand Vu Drive In earlier this month and the Jerome Cinema 4 in January.

When the theaters close, moviegoers in the area will need to visit the Magic Valley Cinema 13, which is the only remaining theater in Twin Falls (and the only one within 35 miles).
