News About This Theater
- Nov 7, 2005 — Bleecker Street Cinema
One of the landmark Greenwich Village theatres played the offbeat films long before anyone involved with the Angelika was even born. Run for many years by Sid Geffen and Jackie Raynal who also had the Carniege Hall Cinema. The second screen called the Agee Room was added on January 14, 1983 and was very tiny.
The theatre went through a soap opera like ownership struggle near its end with three parties fighting for the space. The theatre ended it’s life as a porno theatre and then when the neighborhood complained had a very short stint again showing move-over art films, until it was closed on September 7, 1990 and was gutted for retail space.
