From the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel, 1/25/02:

Regal Cinemas to Close Theater in Fort Wayne, Ind.

The ax is about to fall on Regal Cinemas' largest Fort Wayne movie complex, Coventry 13 theaters.

The theaters near the Village at Coventry “will close on Feb. 7, unless they change their minds,” said Arthur Spirou, president and co- owner of Mallers-Spirou Enterprises, which leases the theaters to Regal.

Mallers-Spirou also leases Holiday 6 theaters near Northcrest Shopping Center to Regal, but that business “stays in place, as far as I know.”

The theater was closed due to several problems including heat in only 3 auditoriums, and as well as health and safety issues. I is currently for sale.
