When Latham Circle Mall closed for good, so did the only movie theater in the Latham area. Now there are new plans to put a movie theater back into Latham at a different location. There has been a lot of construction and new stores being built in Latham in the last couple of years. But when the Regal Movie Theater closed, there wasn't another one rebuilt, until now. According to the Albany Business Journal, there is an interested party that wants to use vacant space to build a movie theater.

The town of Colonie is hopeful that the former Kmart shopping plaza on Route 2 in Latham will be the home of a new movie theater. Joe Masher who is the chief operating officer of Bow Tie Cinemas said that the chain is interested in the space. A lease has not been signed yet but Bow Tie Cinemas is exploring the location.
