“ To my knowledge they have only allowed one movie to be screened since the remodel, and have not allowed any outside organizations to do any events, both things they said publicly they would do.”

Thus far, until or unless proven otherwise, Mosaic Church lied.

Isn’t there a Commandment against that?

br91975 commented about West Newton Cinema on Jan 13, 2023 at 12:02 am

From an email sent earlier today (1/12/2023) by David Bramante, co-owner of the West Newton Cinema:

“ To Our Supporters, Community & Friends,

This past July we announced that The West Newton Cinema was sold to Mark Development. As part of our agreement with the Mark team, our family was given 2 years to continue operations and explore possible options of preserving the Cinema as a center for media, visual and performing arts.

Our focus has been to transition into a non-profit to maintain the theater as part of the Newton community and continue to serve the surrounding areas.

During the past 6 months, a Steering Committee was formed. Steps were taken to create an IRS -approved 501 © (3) (The West Newton Cinema Foundation) as well as begin to create a business plan. We have formed the non-profit and have been approved.  To build the founding Board of Directors and determine if there is support for this idea, the Steering Committee has commissioned the consulting firm, Mersky, Jaffe & Associates, to conduct a feasibility study.

If you would like to participate in the study or would like more detailed information about the project, please reach out to Bridget Bali chair of the steering committee and my daughter.

David Bramante”

@Seth Lewis - There’s the AMC sixplex at Broadway and 19th, but that, of course, is a bit of a hike from 8th and 23rd.

br91975 commented about Fairfax Cinemas on Sep 25, 2022 at 6:41 am

The building which housed the Fairfax is being vacated of its retail tenants, which leads one to wonder if the long-planned redevelopment into apartments is coming near.

br91975 commented about Regal UA Court Street Stadium 12 on Jan 12, 2022 at 4:24 pm

The Fathom Events screenings of Casablanca at Court Street have been removed from the Regal website.

br91975 commented about Regal UA Court Street Stadium 12 on Jan 11, 2022 at 5:10 am

The lack of showtimes on Sunday, January 16th after 8pm, save for two upcoming Fathom Events screenings of Casablanca on January 23rd and 26th (for which refunds could be provided), is concerning.
