Capitol II Theatre closes doors as parent company restructures
Newton's Capitol II Theatre removed showtimes from its marque today and replaced it with a single word: Closed.
The Newton Daily News received legal notice on Monday that Big Time Co-Owner Patrick Miller of Bethany, Mo., filed a Chapter 13 bankruptcy claim in United States Bankruptcy Court Western District of Missouri on Aug. 31. Theatre owner Big Time Cinema informed local General Manager Dawn Bleeker and her family Wednesday night that, due to bankruptcy restructuring, the corporation would be closing its three Iowa locations in an effort to keep Big Time solvent.
Patrick Miller's partner and brother, Robert Miller, sent a separate letter to the NDN stating that as of July 24, Patrick Miller was no longer employed by Big Time. According to the legal notice, Patrick Miller was part owner of the five theaters in the Big Time chain, including the Newton cinema, as well as owner of the Missouri companies Bull’s Eye Trading LLC and Miller Construction Siding & Windows.
