I don’t understand the theatre business anymore. Isn’t three miles away far enough for theatres to draw from different areas?

I’ve heard about this Atlas Park project. Some kind of huge mall and park in Glendale off Cooper Avenue. I remember reading about it and trying to figure out the exact location and what was being demolished and built over. In any event, Warren is right. If there’ll be a multiplex with plenty of free parking, it will offer fierce competition to parking-challenged cinemas like the Kew Gardens, Midway and Continental Theaters (I’m not familiar with the situations in Ridgewood). And the owners at the recently expanded and renovated Queens Center Mall on Queens Blvd and the inferior Metro Mall on Metropolitan Avenue can’t be too happy about its development either.

Yeah… really swank, wasn’t it? The decor was late 20th Century concrete bunker. If you like this style, you should have seen the Cinema City 5 in Fresh Meadows or you can run to Movieworld in Douglaston. I’m happy to say I never attended, but at least it was a place for locals to catch a film. Now that particular avenue of leisure has become a bit less convenient to travel.

The one advantage Crossbay 2 had was that the seats were comfortable and not crammed together with no leg room. Cinema City 5 was a converted Bohacks and had no leg room.

First of all I live near the now closed Crossbay 1 and I guess soon to be 2. Crossbay 2 has terrible maintenance, I haven’t check recently how they are doing but I heard that they closed because of health inspections. I would really love for a new multiple cinema to be built in Ozone Park again.

I visited the theatre today and well lets just say there is no chance of a renovation, they took down the sign (imprints still visible) and they completely gutted the interior so its official that Cross bay 2 will not re open. I ll try to get a pic of it soon. It looks like it will follow Crossbay 1 and just become retail space for now.

I visited the theatre again today and saw a sign that said “Coming Soon Marshalls”. I don’t really understand how they can fit that store in that area. Its really too bad that both Crossbays are officially dead.

I was on a passing A train on my way back from Kennedy Airport and I can say officially that the Crossbay II is now, in fact, a huge Marshall’s! It’s a big improvement over the mostrosity that was the Crossbay II.
