The doors closed for the final time at Charlottesville's first independent film theater.

Vinegar Hill showed its final movie Sunday night. The West Market Street movie house opened 37 years ago in a former car dealership.

Jack Morava says he's seen more than 600 movies at Vinegar Hill over the last 30 years and will miss the theater.

"They always showed interesting films. We saw things here you wouldn't otherwise see," he said.

Morava came with a group of friends to say farewell.

Vinegar Hill's owner says the 219-seat downtown theater can no longer compete with newer, bigger movie theater chains.
