Cape's AMC Town Plaza 5 to close Dec. 1


Cape Girardeau's AMC Town Plaza 5 theater will close on Dec. 1.

In a written statement, AMC director of public relations Ryan Noonan blames the shutdown on a decline in business.

"We continually strive to upgrade the quality of our theatre circuit by adding new screens and by disposing of older screens through closures and sales," Noonan said.  "We do, however, look at our theatres on an individual basis. AMC Town Plaza 5 has been identified as a theatre that no longer competes effectively in the marketplace and will close at the end of business on Thursday, Dec. 1."

A theater employee said signs have been posted informing customers about the closure.

The theater had been a Kerasotes affiliate for years before being purchased by AMC in 2010.
