LAKEWOOD — Dipson Theatres announced it has closed its Chautauqua Mall location effective immediately.

“We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support and patronage throughout the years,” Dipson said in a news release. “Your loyalty has meant the world to us, and we are truly grateful to have had the opportunity to serve you.”

The Chautauqua Mall location in Lakewood features two screens.

“Your support has meant so much to us, and we are genuinely sorry that we can no longer provide you with the quality service and experience that you deserve. Please know that this decision was not made lightly.”
