Cinemark Movies 8 in Boardman to close
Cinemark Movies-8 in Boardman announced it will close at the end of March.
Handel Investments LLC. owns the Shops at Boardman Park property where the movie theater is located. Celeste Lisko, marketing director for Handel, said the property will not be vacant for long and to expect an announcement in the summer for a new business.
“The issue is not attendance, it is upgrading equipment,” Lisko said.
The movie theater does not have enough digital equipment to show all of the digital movies.
Lisko said Cinemark was one of the first businesses to purchase a lease for the Shops, making it at least 20 years old. The second-run movie theater was known for offering $1 to $2.50 movies. Cinemark also owns Tinseltown in Boardman.
