Local movie theater chain Cleveland Cinemas announced Monday that Tower City Cinemas, the 10-screen theater housed in the eponymous mall downtown which annually played host to the Cleveland International Film Festival until this year, is closing permanently as of today.

“While Tower City Cinemas has been closed since March due to the on-going health crisis, with the lease expiring, a decision was made to not reopen the theater,” said Cleveland Cinemas President Jon Forman, in a statement provided to the media. “Our management team and staff have done an incredible job during the 20-plus years we’ve operated this theater. We remain committed to movie-goers in Cleveland and we look forward to serving our Tower City patrons at our other cinemas.”
