Good news. It was announced that the theater would reopen by July 4th. The damage from Superstorm Sandy was so extensive that the screens had to be removed and most of the ground floor of the theater rebuilt. There are new digital and 3D projectors in each of the theaters.
Noting the trend by the big distributors for larger, more luxurious seats the replacements will reduce the capacity to 436.
No indication of the cost of the rebuilding was given by the owner who regarded it as a “labor of love”.
There will also be a new ticket reservation system.
