There is no signage on the building indicating that it is for sale. The marquee reads “Welcome to Greenport”.

I understand that one of the auditoriums had some water damage.

The small theater in the back but it’s been fixed. That theater will not be used so much for movies in the future. The 3 main theaters will be used for movies and events.
