Given the probable lack of safaris in Minnesota, I would be curious to know the origin of this theater’s name. It was decorated in an African safari theme. It was closed on March 17, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In October 2020 it was announced that it had been sold to the Ignite Church.

I think those are second run films on the theater site, i.e. Alvin & the Chipmunks. The function should be changed accordingly.

A few pictures of the Safari 1&2 illustrate this article in Boxoffice, June 30, 1975. The Safari had 850 seats, divided 550 and 300. Originally operated by the State Theatre Company, the Safari was the first new hardtop built in Moorhead in 30 years. The African safari theme was the notion of State Theatres head Dan Peterson, and the design was carried out by decorator Jerry Arness. Boxoffice did not give the name of the architect.

The Marcus Safari 7 Cinema closed March 17, 2020 along with the rest of the Marcus' locations for the COVID-19 pandemic. Virtually every discount, sub-run theatre was closed permanently in the United States during the pandemic due to both lack of product and very uncertain marketplace for second-run theaters in a streaming world. Marcus dropped the cinema from its webpage and disconnected its telephone permanently closing the theater in October of 2020 followed by an announcement that the theatre was sold to Ignite Church.

It closed as the the Marcus Safari 7 Cinema.
