Farrelli's Cinema Supper Club, the upscale restaurant and movie theater combination housed in a 1940s-style theater in Scottsdale has closed.
Opened in 2001, Farrelli's had this to say on its Facebook page:
"It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the closing of Farrelli's Cinema Supper Club.
For 10 years, it has been a huge struggle to keep Farrelli's open between 9/11, the uncooperative movie industry and the recession. Recently we began negotiations with the new landlord, the bank that has taken over the property. They abruptly ceased negotiations last week and are not willing to renew a reasonable lease with us. We didn't see it coming, don't understand their motivation and have no options but to shut down.
