Re-opening day!

Listed in editions of Film Daily Yearbook since at least 1941 when it had 380 seats. This cinema later became a twin showing first run movies. The Ramsey Cinema was closed on August 19, 2013. Renovations were carried out and digital projection installed. It reopened on January 8, 2014.

Pretty impressive that they only lost 3 seats in the split. And to DeerinSpace, I know how you feel. I have been/was a union projectionist for over 37 years before losing my job to digital earlier this year.

And to you as well, Lindsey B. The union is giving me work at the arena in Newark, but its not a steady paycheck.

The kickstarter campaign successfully raised the funds and they have begun the renovation process. They are hoping to re-open by mid-December.
