Apple Cinemas Warwick: 400 Bald Hill Rd, Warwick. The new cinema opening at the Warwick Mall will hold its grand opening on March 3, includes a full-service bar, and has announced plans to screen foreign films and movies from the Indian film market. It is part of a regional chain of New England cinemas.
Blush Vegan Bakery: 408 Atwells Ave, PVD. Owner Samantha Chamberlain shared a regretful social media post at the end of January that Blush would be closing its doors. Chamberlain cited the pandemic as the main reason for closure, expressed thanks for her staff and customers, and hoped that this was less of a “goodbye” and more of a “see you later.”
Bobby G’s: 703 Kingstown Rd, South Kingstown. Dammit, Bobby! Bobby G’s owners thanked all of their customers for 39 years of business, and are looking forward to retirement.
Federal Hill Pizza: 1039 Chalkstone Ave, PVD. Owner and chef Billy Manzo indicated last fall that he would close the location to focus on his original East Bay location as well as a new line of frozen pizzas, thus perpetuating the Castle Cinema building’s curse.
