“Unfortunately, our lease has ended and the Paris Theatre is now closed," the note reads. "We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all our guests over the years.”

“Thank you for your patronage, and we regret that we cannot continue to serve you,” the note continues.

The single-screen theater, located at 4 W 58th St. near Fifth Ave., was opened by Pathé Cinema in 1948.

The theater later reopened for nearly three more decades until it closed down on Wednesday.

It’s unclear whether the Paris Theatre may be reopened at some point under new management.
