The Sehome 3 movie theater building is up for sale, an indication that it is one of the theaters that will close after the new theater opens in Barkley Village this fall.
Here’s a (link) to the sales listing, offering $1.4 million for the property, which is at 3300 Fielding Ave. (Tip of the hat to a reader who sent me this link). According to the listing, the building size is 13,354 square feet and the entire lot totals 92,783 square feet. According to Whatcom County property records, the property was last sold in 1992 for $1.625 million and is currently appraised at $1.4 million.
The listing also indicates that the property will be deed restricted for use as a movie theater after the sale.
At this point Regal Cinemas has not publicly announced the fate of its current Bellingham movie theaters once it opens the new facility in the Barkley District (Along with Sehome, Regal operates the Sunset Square and Bellis Fair movie theaters). With the new theater carrying 16 screens, I’ve heard plenty of speculation about which, if any, of the older Regal movie theaters will remain open after the new theater is ready.
