This just goes to show that you d-bags reading this blog have a great deal of insight into the news despite the hateration against free speech from otherwise timid souls.
The newspaper FINALLY noted this just a few moments ago with second hand source, a full week after our blog community but the news on blast FIRST.
Sources say Cinemark Palace at the Plaza will be closing.
“Cinemark told us the week of the festival this year that they were, in fact, closing,” said Veronica Elliott Loncar, executive director of the Kansas City FilmFest International, on Monday. The group has held its festival at Cinemark since 2013. “We are looking at other theaters in Kansas City so we will be somewhere. We are checking out all our options.”
Cinemark employees also are telling customers the theater will shut down on May 19.
And so, now we put the question to start this morning for our blog community . . .
WILL THE CINEMARK THEATER SHUT DOWN SAVE THE PLAZA?!?!?
You decide . . .
