At the end of its lease this month, Cleveland Cinemas will step away from the movie theater at Shaker Square after failing to come to mutually agreeable terms with the property owner, Coral Co.

Atlas Cinemas, another local chain, will take over the six-screen theater on the southwest corner of the Square and plans to reopen after some interior sprucing up.

Cleveland Cinemas has operated the Art Deco theater since 2000. With this departure, its remaining properties will be the Cedar Lee (its first and still its flagship), Tower City, the Capitol, the Apollo in Oberlin and Southside Works Cinema in Pittsburgh.

The Plain Dealer's Michelle Jarboe reports that prices may go down slightly when Atlas assumes management at Shaker Square, and that, among other minor changes, the theater will no longer serve alcoholic refreshments.

The Atlas ownership group, much like Cleveland Cinemas, seems eager to show indie, local and special-event fare alongside mainstream releases.
