KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- 6 years after opening in downtown Kalamazoo the Rave Theatre chain is looking for a way out, and reportedly negotiating with another theatre chain to take over the downtown multiplex. If they can’t cut a deal, they may close it as soon as January, after the holiday movie season.
The rave “has been in negotiations with the property owner and there's just change happening," Steve Deisler, Downtown Kalamazoo Inc. vice president of planning and development, said Monday. "They're moving out and we're hoping that a new theater will be moving in here in the next few months." He says we could find out in the next few weeks.
