PEARL RIVER, NY — With plans to hopefully revitalize the Pearl River Theater, the city is saving it from the wrecking ball. At the moment, they are entertaining proposals for its future.

Orangetown may soon purchase a vacant theater for less than the cost of a matinee movie ticket.

Town Supervisor Thom Kleiner said the town reached a tentative agreement this week to buy the Pearl River Movie Theater building on Central Avenue for $1 from Skyview Plaza Development Corp. All the board has to do is grant a zone change for another project the developer has in town.

As of this writing this has not happened. The citizens of Pearl River felt that accepting a zone change in exchange for the theater was not acceptable. The theater still sits empty and abandoned, and falling apart… sadly.
