BUFFALO, N.Y. — Dipson Theatres has closed its doors at the Eastern Hills Mall.
The entertainment company said the pandemic made it very challenging to compete with other theaters.
Eastern Hills Mall said that location has been around since its original grand opening and Dipson said it's now more important than ever to support local business.
Statement from Eastern Hills Mall operations:
“We are grateful for Dipson Theaters and the numerous contributions their organization has made for decades at both the Eastern Hills Mall and throughout our community. Dipson has been at the mall since its original grand opening. Unfortunately, the pandemic has been especially hard for many local retail businesses. We truly understand the current situation of the theater industry - especially post-COVID - and the toll it has taken on this well-respected, locally owned, and operated theatre. We wish Dipson Theaters, their ownership, and employees the absolute best moving forward and encourage the community to support locally owned and operated retailers and restaurants.”
