CLOSING CREDITS: Edgewater Multiplex Set to Shut Down on November 13
Your list of rainy day options just got a bit shorter…
Showcase Cinemas, which operates the Edgewater Multiplex, have announced that the theater will be closing as of November 13.
According to the website, the cinema will be closing “due to business circumstances.” We can only speculate as to the meaning of that. The cinema industry overall is reportedly stagnating amidst an overload of competitive entertainment platforms.
Meanwhile, Edgewater is constantly evolving, with development creeping in on all fronts. Time will tell what takes its place.
The Edgewater location is Showcase Cinemas’ sole venue in New Jersey.
After November 13, your best bets on this side of the river are Bow Tie, Secaucus or Newport.
