Heights Cinema’s Future in Question
BROOKLYN, NY — The sale of Screen Arts Corporation’s Park Slope Pavillion may be bad news for Brooklyn Heights Pavillion, the company’s last theater and one of the last duplex theaters in New York City. (Park Slope was sold to Access Intergrated Technologies, which still runs the theater.)
The Heights Pavillion has had to reduce its hours of operation recently and has had to face stiff competition from the United Artists Court Street Stadium 12 Theater nearby. Screen Arts had to also sell the Flatbush Pavillion recently, which as of now, is still unoccupied.
The Park Slope Pavillion, though a multiplex, has managed to keep its independent-cinema charm with unique concessions, art cinema film choices and an elegant restaurant upstairs.
