Hayden theater turning lights off

Print Article

The big screens in Hayden are about to go dark.

Hayden Cinema 6 is closing Sunday, owner Curtis Deming confirmed Monday. He said April 28 will be the final day of business for the independent movie theater. Its demise will leave Kootenai County film-goers with a single source of viewing: Riverstone Cinemas in Coeur d'Alene. The independent Post Falls Theater closed in January 2012.

"It happened pretty suddenly," Deming said. "I'm not able, at this point, to explain why. It's sad. I got so much support from the general public and it was a great time seeing all those people here."

The theater has been open for 15 years and currently has nine employees. Deming said he doesn't know what he's going to do next, but that currently his priorities are completing the process of closing the property and making sure his employees have found new jobs.

In recent years, the theater has tried both second-run film showings and, most recently, first-run showings. In both cases, ticket prices were lower than competition in Coeur d'Alene and Spokane.
