Malco Theatres closing due to COVID-19 pandemic

With the growing number of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, and the growing number of cities mandating a 24-hour-a-day quarantine, many businesses are closing up, including many entertainment venues.

On Tuesday, Malco Theatres announced they are closing all 37 locations across six states until further notice to comply with local, state and federal directives concerning COVID-19.

“The health and safety of our guests and employees is of the highest importance,” said David Tashie, president and COO of Malco Theatres, Inc. “We will continue closely monitoring the situation and when given clearance, be ready to resume normal operations.”

The closures effect the Malco Oxford Studio Cinema and Malco Oxford Commons locations, including Premier Lanes which is connected to the Oxford Commons location. The Oxford Film Festival, which was set to take place this week, was going to run in the Malco Oxford Commons location and several other locations around Oxford, but announced its postponement last week.

Cinemark is another movie theatre chain that announced the closure of their locations on Tuesday. Between Oxford and Tupelo, four theatres are closed for the foreseeable future.
