Bridgeport’s only movie theater has closed and will be replaced by an apartment complex, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. National Amusements, which owns Showcase Cinemas, put the theater on the market back in 2014. Spinnaker Real Estate and Eastpoint LLC now plan to raze it and build a market-rate apartment complex, according to the outlet. The developers will keep the existing 500-car parking garage as is. Showcase Cinemas opened back in 1993. [FBJ]
