New ArcLight Cinemas At Hub On Causeway Will Stay Closed For Good

BOSTON (AP) -- A downtown Boston movie theater that opened just months before the coronavirus pandemic took hold has apparently closed for good.

ArcLight Cinemas said Monday that it won't reopen its theaters, which include a 15-screen location at the Hub on Causeway next to TD Garden, The Boston Globe reported.

The California-based company said in a statement on its website that it "does not have a viable way forward," and would not reopen its theaters, which have been shut for more than a year now. The Boston location opened in November 2019.

It's the second premium movie house to close downtown Boston in a month, following the ShowPlace Icon in the Seaport in March.
