Sky Cinemas closes permanently
Sky Cinemas located in Belterra Village announced they're permanently closing on Mon. May 18, in a press release titled, “Goodbye Dripping Springs.” The covid-19 shutdown was given as the reason for going out of business.
“We closed our business temporarily on March 18, 2020, the day a Hays County court issued an order prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 persons. We supported that order as we support all efforts to manage this public health crisis,” the press release said. “We had eagerly looked forward to the day when we could safely re-open Sky Cinemas. Sadly, that day will not come. With our business closed due to COVID and no revenue coming in, we were unable to pay our rent. We attempted to reach an arrangement with our landlord that would allow us to stay, but we failed to do so, and our lease was terminated.”
The release stated the property owners are now looking for a replacement cinema operator, and ended with a farewell note to the DS community, “We love Dripping Springs, and are proud of what we built with this community. We set out to develop the finest family cinema ever created. We sought to establish a place where Dripping Springs’ families would come together as a community. Our cinema became what we hoped it would… Thank you for your support, Dripping Springs. We will miss you. We are proud to have been your cinema.”
