Williamsburg Cinemas Finally Opening Next Month

Now, we’ll never have to venture into Manhattan on the weekend!

The final touches on Williamsburg Cinemas, Elgart’s long-planned seven-auditorium movie hub on Grand Street and Driggs Avenue, will wrap up this weekend for the 1,000-seater theater to open in December, he said.

“We were planning on opening Nov. 2…then Sandy hit,” said Elgart, the theater’s owner and operator.

The Department of Buildings’ final inspection of the space has been delayed by post-hurricane demands on the agency’s time, Elgart said.
“We were going to start with the ‘Life of Pi’ and the new James Bond movie,” he said. “Now we’re shooting for Christmas titles.”

Elgart, who already owns Cobble Hill Cinemas and Kew Gardens Cinemas, touted the theater’s 3D screens, 7.1 surround sound, “rocking chair seating,” and mix of indie and blockbuster movies.
“We’ll be showing ‘The Hobbit’ in 3D,” he said of one of the first planned films.

  4. It was inevitable. It happens everywhere. The true visionaries and artists move in and make a neighborhood special, exciting and eclectic. The trick is to enjoy and experience it for as long as you can.
    Money follows. It always does. Either just accept it and buy your tickets, or move to the country.
