Warwick Mall Showcase to permanently close

Posted

The Showcase Cinemas location at the Warwick Mall, which has been closed throughout the pandemic, will not reopen its doors.

WPRI and WLNE each reported that Domenic Schiavone, mall’s general manager, said the theater chain has decided not to renew its lease for the site when it expires at the end of April.

Schiavone also told the Providence Journal that the mall aims to replace the Showcase with another entertainment venue.

The Warwick Mall Showcase has been closed since last March, having opted not to reopen to moviegoers once pandemic-related restrictions allowed.

The chain’s other, original Warwick location, on Quaker Lane near the East Greenwich line, did reopen last summer and is not slated to close.

Online property records show the nearly 48,000-square-foot building currently occupied by the Warwick Mall Showcase is owned by Warwick Mall Owner LLC. Its valuation for 2020 is listed as roughly $6.3 million.

Showcase Cinemas is owned by Massachusetts-based National Amusements.
