BRONX, NY — Has anybody heard which theater chain will operate on the site of the Kingsbridge Armory on Jerome Avenue?? Related Companies won the site development proposal from NYC and they have announced a theater as part of a mixed use development plan for the armory.

Months back there it was announced that National Amusements would build on Broadway in the Marble Hill section in the West 200 block area near the new Target store. That project was being developed by Bernard Rosenshein of nearby Westchester County, NY as reported in the Bronx Review Press. Not sure if that project is still active.

SECAUCUS, NJ — Heard that the Kerasotes chain is about to sign a lease to build somwhere in Secaucus. No further details. Anybody know a bit more???

check the comments on the Loews theaters in Secaucus. From what I heard, only the secaucus plaza 8 will be shut down in the Harmon Meadow section where the theater will be open. It will feature stadium seating and DTS sound in all screens, and it will open summer of next year just in time for another mindless Star Trek movie. The Meadow Six won’t be affected, but might be converted to retail space if both the Secaucus theater and the much bigger Muvico complex in Xanadu (also slated to open the same time as Kerasotes) do well. There are rumors that Kerasotes might open a theater in Edison with stadium seating, not to mention the return of movies to Hoboken by Clearview.
