The Chaska Herald is reporting that the Chaska Rex movie theater closed yesterday. The Rex was part of the Five Star Cinemas group which also operates theaters in Chanhassen, Buffalo, and Excelsior. Per the company’s website, gift cards and rewards cards will be honored at those theaters.
This is another tough blow for the downtown business district. Hopefully, implementation work on the Downtown Master Plan and an improving economy can help the area begin to prosper.
