|Home: BigScreen Journal - Morristown, NJ: Clearview's Morristown Headquarters Ten Theatres Closing Soon|
Clearview's Morristown Headquarters Ten Theatres in Morristown, New Jersey is due to close soon, according to an article published May 19, 2013 in the Morristown Patch:
"Bow Tie Cinemas will be acquiring substantially all of Clearview Cinemas movie theaters, however the Morristown theater is not being acquired," said Kelly McAndrew, Cablevision's spokeswoman. "The lease on that facility is expiring and will not be renewed."
However, according to Christopher Beattie, Bow Tie spokeman, this quick closure of Clearview Cinema Headquarters is not what the company hoped for.
"The lease on the Morristown theater ends shortly, and it is up to the landlord to decide what he wants to do," said Beattie. "We have made extensive efforts to negotiate with the landlord and extend the lease, but we have been unsuccessful to-date. We are still in discussions with the landlord and hope to be able to reach a mutually satisfactory agreement that will allow Bow Tie to serve the Morristown community."
The negotiations proved successful and although the original last day of the theater was Sunday, "Clearview Cinemas and the landlord have agreed to continue to operate the Headquarters 10 Theatre in Morristown for the next several weeks," said McAndrew.

Clearview Cinemas was acquired earlier this month by Bow Tie Cinemas. Even though closures of some recently-acquired locations is not unheard of, it would seem in this situation that Bow Tie wanted to keep this location running. That could result in it staying open if Bow Tie and the landlord can come to an equitable agreement.
