Movie Towne’s Chaguanas branch is set to be closed permanently.
According to a report on the Trinidad Express, owner Derek Chin stated that the COVID-19 pandemic along with a difficult landlord has made it uneconomical for the outlet to continue there.
He added that the extended shut down and the continued uncertainty has made it difficult to continue.
In the interest of keeping Movie Towne’s overall business in a survival mode, Mr. Chin says they felt closing the Chaguanas branch was the best alternative.
The movie theatre chain’s other outlets in Port of Spain, San Fernando and Tobago are expected to remain open when restrictions are relaxed.
