Chaska Rex movie theater closes

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.

  1. Five Star Cinemas dosen’t run any of their theaters very well at at. The quality blows. Perhaps if they just theaters clean and acted like they gave a cr@#$ about their product it would still be around. Excelisior dock is next for Five Star. Hopefully the historicl society get’s involved and helps to find a new owner who can run a successful theater chain…

  2. this town is dying.
