Cinemark has closed its eight-screen Richmond Mall location in advance of its lease on the property ending later this year. The company had been showing second-run movies at the theater and charging discounted admission after it opened its 12-screen location at Richmond Centre last year.
Vickey Strunk, asset manager for Richmond Mall, said the space amounts to about 20,000 square feet. The mall plans to keep the theater look and has been in talks, she said, with a company to potentially offer a dinner-and-movie business.
The mall leaders have also been in talks with an educational provider about using the theaters for adult education classrooms, she said.
