Community theater closes its doors


The owners of the Galaxy Cinema say they have struggled to make ends meet and are closing the doors.

The independent theater housed movies often not found elsewhere in the Triangle, but its location was just miles from a digital multiplex.

They're movies that make you think. When we're not here showing those, there's going to be a little bit of loss of that," general manager Brantley Sawyer said.

On Sunday evening the six theaters will go dark. The building will soon be demolished and in its place, a grocery store will be built.

The theater's closing will also end the Bollywood hits a growing community of Indians in Cary has grown to love. Owners say people travel to the Galaxy Cinema from nearby states just to see some of the genre's top performances.

"I've been coming here for a while. It's kind of like always been here, so I'm kind of sad about it," Ananya Talikoti said.

The owners of the theater say they are considering ways to reopen in a new location.
