Delta Movie Theaters Up For Sale

Delta residents are wondering about the future of the Tru Vu Drive-In and the Egyptian Theater now that both theaters have gone up for sale.

The current owners purchased the two theaters in October of 2019 with hopes of keeping it for years to come, but with the onset of COVID-19 in 2020, it's been a struggle to find success. One of the co-owners, Maragaret Stalcup told the Delta County Independent the theater business was not bouncing back quickly and the decision was made to put the two businesses up for sale.

The Egyptian Theater was built in 1928 and is on the National Register of Historic Places and sits on Delta's Main Street.
