The Fine Arts Group, which owns and operates two local theatres, is temporarily closing Glenwood Arts Theatre in Overland Park once again until COVID-19 is more under control.

Glenwood Arts in the Ranch Mart South shopping center at 3707 W. 95th Street first closed in mid-March due to the pandemic and the associated shutdowns, but reopened on Oct. 21 with limited capacity. According to a press release, owners Brian and Ben Mossman cite low attendance and ongoing changes to film release schedules for temporarily closing the theatre now.

“This is not a decision at which we have arrived lightly, but we believe it is made in the best interests of you, the customer,” the Mossmans said in a letter released to the public Tuesday afternoon. “Your health, your wellbeing and your safety remain our greatest priorities.”
