Westhampton Theater set to close later this year

The curtains will soon close on the 77-year-old theater at Libbie and Grove.

You only have a short time left to catch a movie at The Westhampton Theater, according to Richmond BizSense. The 77-year-old theater, managed by Regal Cinemas, was quietly sold to the Cametas family for $1.75 million in March of last year.

The entity plans to redevelop the building after receiving input from members of the surrounding community on how the property can best be utilized.

The last movies will be shown at The Westhampton sometime later this year, though no official closing date has been decided at this point.

A Regal Cinemas spokesman says the two-screen cinema, which largely plays independent films, has been an underperforming property for years.
