FANTASTIC NEWS! Similarly, this makes my day.

No, it is NOT open. I live down the block and pass by every day. I emailed Clearview last week via their web site to find out what had happened and just got this response: “Clearview Cinemas has made a business decision to sell the lease for this theatre. Clearview ceased operation of the Metro Twin as of Friday, August 27, 2004. Unfortunately, we don’t have any further information regarding the plans for this location.”

Any news out there about the Metro Twin on 100th/Broadway? The marquee suddenly has “Sorry We’re Closed” posted (was showing something even this past weekend). I fear it’s doomed for good this time.

Sadly, as of tonight, the marquee now reads “Sorry We’re Closed,” although as of last weekend it was still open. The low-rise building to its north is empty and I’ve heard they’re going to be razed, so things don’t look good for the Metro. I won’t miss the uncomfortable seats, but I will miss its mere existence as the only movie theater betw. 84th St. and the Magic Johnson on 125th. If anyone knows anything about the future of the building I’d love to know. Maybe at least the facade will be preserved!
