Trolleyguy commented about Center Cinema Twins on Jul 12, 2020 at 4:00 pm

This theatre has been sold to new owners who have reopened the Starlite 14 Drive-in just south of town. The drive-in is now open and showing older films. The Center Cinema Twins may open again once the Covd19 crisis is open. https://madison.com/wsj/business/starlite-14-resurrected-in-richland-center-amid-covid-19-pandemic-but-older-movies-offer-challenge/article_fa45f095-96ac-54b0-862a-d0f3b32170b1.html

Status should be changed to open. The theatre has been sold along with the Center Cinema Twins in downtown Richland Center. The drive-in is now showing older films and providing social distancing. Here’s a story about it: https://madison.com/wsj/business/starlite-14-resurrected-in-richland-center-amid-covid-19-pandemic-but-older-movies-offer-challenge/article_fa45f095-96ac-54b0-862a-d0f3b32170b1.html
