Bethel's movie theater, Bethel Cinema, located at 269 Greenwood Avenue has announced that it will not reopen after the emergency declaration that shuttered theaters throughout the state is eventually lifted.
In a news release, Bethel Cinema owner Pam Karpen said "Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic and economic strife that goes with it, the continued operation of Bethel Cinema has become impossible. As a regrettable outcome of this, we have to shut the theater."
The release continued "We have been the owners of the theater for the past 15 years and it has been incredible privilege to be part of this community and a part of your lives. Like every business we are the sum of our team and our customers and we have been fortunate enough to have incredible people in both of those arenas."
Anyone interested in buying the business is encouraged to contact Pam Karpen via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ken Karlan at (203) 943-0600.
