Goodbye Star Ship 9

It was a sad goodbye on the last night for the Star Ship 9 in downtown Lincoln Sunday night.  

The discount movie theatre is being demolished to make way for a parking garage and high-rise near 13th and 'Q' Streets.

The theatre first opened in 1992 and has shown second-run movies.

Over the years, admission has stayed at two dollars, but the rapid release of DVDs is driving theatres like the Star Ship 9 out of business.  Officials say attendance has dropped 50 percent over the past 5 years.

The Douglas Theatre Company hasn't decided whether or not to open a new second-run theatre in Lincoln.
