Closing: Muskegon, MI – Harbor Theatre

If this were boxing, they’d be on the ropes | Extra Iddings –

Then, earlier this week, the operators of the Harbor Theater, 1937 Lakeshore Drive, an independent- and art-movie house in the business district of the Lakeside neighborhood, said they’ll likely have to close the place at the beginning of February.

Brendan and Jen Pelto reopened this historic theater in April 2008. Two years later and — “poof!” — gone in an instant.

Camerata and the Harbor both cited a familiar problem: Money. They wrung their hands with woes wrought of declining subscriber bases, dwindling donations and flagging attendance.

Only Farmer went so far as to lay some blame on the the region’s anemic economy, but otherwise Camerata and the Harbor sang similar songs.

Turn out the lights, the party’s over.
