Starlight Cinema in Independence Closing Doors

An Independence movie theater is closing.

Starlight Cinema announced they’ll be closing their doors this weekend.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Starlight Cinema says the theater industry has changed over the last five years – and with the ability to now stream so many movies, they say many theaters are just not seeing the attendance needed to stay open.

Starlight Cinema adds that they are extremely grateful for the community’s patronage over the past fifteen years.

For Starlight Cinema’s final weekend, they’ll be showing “Paw Patrol” on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and offering free popcorn for everyone.
