Carson Stadium Cinemas in north Carson City appears to have closed its doors, at least for the time being.

On Oct. 13, the theater and adjacent parking lot, located at 2571 N. Carson St., were empty. The marquee was blank as well as exterior signs for movie posters.

Parent company Bloomhuff Theatres couldn’t be reached for comment, but the Carson City theater does not appear on the company’s website.

The discount theater opened in 2010 with four screens.

“It will be a discount house, but a top-of-the-line discount house,” owner Todd Bloomhuff previously told the Appeal. “In our market these days, the typical family of four has a really difficult time going to the movies on a regular basis.”

At the time, the company upgraded the interior with new paint and marble decor. The Northern Nevada Business Weekly later reported Bloomhuff spent $95,000 on upgrades.

The former Northgate Theater 10 closed in 2008 after originally opening in 1980. That theater had lost business after the all-digital Galaxy Fandango Theater opened in south Carson City.

Bloomhuff operates theaters in Nevada and California, according to the company’s website. A Nov. 25, 2020, GoFundMe page organized by Tiffany Chapman Bloomhuff of Incline Village asked for help in “saving Incline Village Cinema.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has hit movie theatres especially hard this year,” the post said. “We are in the business of bringing people together in our small-town movie theatre but the pandemic has brought that to a drastic halt.”

The fundraiser raised $4,265, according to GoFundMe.
