|Home: BigScreen Journal - Port Washington, NY: Soundview Cinemas Reopens April 26, 2013|
The Soundview Cinemas in Port Washington, New York will reopen on April 26, 2013. It has been closed since September 2010 when then-owner Clearview Cinemas could not come to a rent agreement with the landlord.
The Plainview Patch published an article in late March that talked about the challenges that the new owners faced in trying to reopen the theater:
The Desners had hoped to open the theater in May 2012, but because the shopping center is in foreclosure, the approval process grew complicated, at times downright grueling, Jordan Desner said. But a settlement was reached, Desner and he signed a new lease Tuesday.
Now, Desner will be seeing to it that seats, flooring, speakers, digital projectors, equipment, new concession stands and more are installed.
"We have five weeks to get open," he said.
The only variable now, Desner noted, is when the seats – leather rockers from China – arrive. But, he says, he is “under contract” to have the digital projectors showing movies by April 30. That’s why he is aiming for that April 26 date – the last Friday of the month.
"We're just excited to open the theater for Port Washington residents and give them a great theater they can be proud of – everything is brand new," Desner said.
