Regal Cinema space in Irondequoit cleared for redevelopment

Written by on March 29, 2024

The former Regal Culver Ridge movie theater in Irondequoit, vacant since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, is set for redevelopment after receiving final site plan approval from the Irondequoit Planning Board. The 55,000-square-foot space at Culver Ridge Plaza will be transformed into five retail spaces, with discount store Five Below, off-price department store Burlington, and Kids Empire, an indoor activities park for children, already signed on as tenants. The project, managed by Marathon Engineering and Irondequoit TK Owner, is expected to take 15 to 18 months to complete. This redevelopment comes after challenges including finding suitable tenants and managing high costs due to the building’s multilevel design and extensive soundproofing. The iconic curved art deco-style facade of the building will also be removed as part of the renovation efforts. The theater originally opened in 1997 but closed in March 2020 due to state-imposed COVID-19 restrictions and never reopened. In March 2022, Irondequoit TK Owner sued Regal Cinemas for unpaid rent and taxes, a lawsuit that was paused due to Regal’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
