Theatre Closing To Make Way For New Owner

If you are catching a movie on cheap night, you can say goodbye to the theatre under its current ownership.

It's the end of the line for Empire Theatres in Atlantic Canada.

It's many locations in Atlantic Canada including Studio 10 in East Saint John are closing as of midnight tonight.

Back in June, it was announced that 24 Empire theatres would be sold to Cineplex including 6 in this province.   

That includes locations in Rothesay and Saint John in a deal worth almost $200 million  dollars.

A message posted on the Empire Theatre's website says "On October 22nd Empire Theatres in Atlantic Canada will say goodbye and Cineplex Cinemas will say hello beginning October 24th."
