An inability to draw first-run Hollywood movies and low attendance numbers is forcing Lighthouse Cinemas in Pacific Grove to shut its doors.

A theater representative said the last movies will be shown at the four-screen theater Sept. 7.

“We wanted to do everything possible to keep the theater up and running, but for all its quaintness and charm we simply couldn’t get the kind of movies needed to keep it operating,” said David Corwin, president of Metropolitan Theaters Corps., which has operated the Lighthouse for the past two years.

The kind of movies available is only part of the problem. The service and value for the money paid is a big part.
