SVA acquires Chelsea West
NEW YORK, NY — A bright future may be in store for the Chelsea West Cinemas. New York’s School of Visual Arts is renovating it to serve as a repertory house.
One of the boldest moves in Gotham exhibition this decade is taking shape along a quiet stretch of West 23rd Street.
The Clearview Chelsea West Cinemas, a somewhat unlikely center of gravity for the film biz in recent years, has been acquired by the School of Visual Arts. The school, which signed a 26-year lease to operate the site, is renaming it the Visual Arts Theater and renovating inside and out under the guidance of noted designer Milton Glaser.
