According to the Evansville Courier of 10/25/2020: “Several months after it was placed on the market, the Showplace South has a new owner. Showplace management says the building will not reopen as a theatre and the location is closed. We’re told the location had been losing money, and with the pandemic, it was closed. All other Showplace locations will remain open – although Showplace East is the only operating theatre right now during the pandemic.”

I don’t think the theater reopened. The showtimes that appear on are identical to those at the Showplace North 9 (compared them to Fandango). Also, if you count the number of shows per set, there are more than seven screens worth of showtimes. Might be that showtimes were pushed to the wrong location and just picked them up.

Thanks for catching that.
