Iconic River Oaks Theatre prepares to close after no deal struck

HOUSTON, Texas -- The story may be at an end for arguably Houston's most cherished theater. Amidst talks of a deal, Landmark Theatres, which owns the iconic River Oaks Theatre, announced that no deal has been struck between it and Weingarten Realty.

In a statement provided to CultureMap, Landmark reports:

"Landmark Theatres is disappointed to announce that there has been no response or acknowledgment of the revised proposal we submitted to Weingarten Reality this week. In good faith, we presented a fair and reasonable proposal and asked for a response by close of business today. Unfortunately, there has been no response or even acknowledgement of this proposal, leaving us no choice, but continue with our preparation to leave our beloved home of 30 years."
