As noted, oh, minutes ago, Dallasites will have one fewer moviegoing option come Sunday, as AMC is closing its Loews Cityplace 14. Turns out, the property is owned by Rosebud Properties, which has actually sold the theater, according to the woman who answered the phone there.
Only, to whom the property's been sold is still a mystery: Rosebud president and CEO Don Farris is out of the office, and the woman who answered the phone said she wasn't sure whether she was able to release that information in his absence. That said, she has promised to get back to Unfair Park before day's end with more information. Holding ... breath ... starting ... now. --Robert Wilonsky
