Josh, you are clearly the best thing to happen to the West End in years. I have lived in the West End since 1986, at which point, if memory serves, there were 11 movie theaters within a 15 minutes' walk. The West End 1-4 and 5-7 were truly my “home theaters,” as I could read the marquee of the 1-4 from my bedroom window (if the nearest tree’s leaves were not in full) and be inside the theater within two minutes. It was a sad day when, from that same window, I saw the large screening room’s seats and screen exposed as the wrecking ball knocked away its roof and outside wall. What a relief to see the reopening of the 1-4 after years of walking past lamenting the senselessness of its sitting idle. Let’s hope that more dormant theaters reopen in the wake of its certain success!
