FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Residents who like to see movies for a discounted price and often frequent the Starplex Cinemas Coventry 13 theater may have been alarmed to read on the Starplex website that the Fort Wayne theater had been closed down on Tuesday.

21Alive went out the the theater and found the lights still shining bright. According to employees, Starplex no longer owns the theater, but they didn't say who the new owner was.

Employees said that the cost and run of movies should remain about the same.

Google still lists a set of movie times for current movies, but the automated message at the phone number listed (436-6312), states that the showtimes are for Oct 1 - 3 only.

It's unclear how movie times will be listed after Thursday.
