Mall cinema closes

Salisbury Cinemas has closed.
Long known for its $2 movies — more recently increased to $2.50 — the theater at the Salisbury Mall will not reopen, says a notice posted on its doors today.
According to that notice, the main sewer line into the building has backed up repeatedly in the past month, resulting in raw sewage pouring into the building.
The first backup happened July 5.
The owner of the building, New York-based Namdar Realty Group, was notified by phone and again on July 23 with an official notice from an attorney, the notice says.
The sewage has continued to back up into this building and we have had to operate on reduced hours because of this unresolved problem, the notice says.
The sewage last backed up on Friday, according to the notice.
The Landlord has not responded to phone calls or letters, and there is no expectation that there will be any corrective action taken to resolve the sewage problems. So we have no choice but to CLOSE, the notice says.
Dan Kleeburg of Winston-Salem has run the Salisbury Cinemas. He also owns a theater in Winston-Salem.
