The fate of the Richmond Road Movie Tavern has been decided. What will go in it’s place? When will this happen? Has it always been a Movie Tavern?

Movie Tavern: construction site with large machinesThe original theater, Movies 8, opened in January of 1990 and was eventually turned into a Movie Tavern in 2006 when ownership changed hands.

A second location for Movie Tavern opened up in Brannon Crossing in 2015, which is the same year the Richmond Road location was closed.

This past weekend, crews cleared away the theater to make room for it’s new building for Citadel Self Storage. A $1 million storage facility that spans around 55,000 square feet of space. This is a climate-controlled storage facility that is also found in Louisville and Cincinnati.

No word on when the storage facility will open.
