The old movie theatre in Indio, will soon be the new movie theatre in Indio.
Regency Theatres has purchased the old Metro 8 Theatre on Highway 111 in Indio.
The sale has been approved by Riverside County officials, and the Indio City Council has also signed off on the deal.
The old Metro 8 was open for a quarter of a century, closing in March 2020 when everything else was locked down by the government of the State of California.
But when other businesses reopened in 2021, the Metro 8 did not.
The new theater will be called Regency Festival Cinemas, sporting a new interior, and exterior, a game room, and upgraded concessions.
Once you find your seat, you will enjoy electric reclining seats, and wall to wall screens.
Look for the new place to open mid to late summer of 2022.
