kevinlally commented about Jean Renoir Cinema on Apr 15, 2008 at 3:46 pm

As the late, quite remarkable Ray Blanco explains above, the Jean Renoir Cinema originally opened at 162 Second Avenue, then was forced to move to the Actors Playhouse at 100 7th Avenue South due to landlord problems. A plumbing crisis at the second location was the last straw, and the cinema closed for good at the end of 1977. I was there, and it was quite a year, full of ups and downs.
