Tell Us: Movie Theater

What should the court know about granting approval to green-light this project?

Looks like Port Washington must wait until at least the end of August before a new movie theater can open in Soundview Marketplace.

Because the shopping center is in foreclosure, the New York State Supreme Court must grant approval before the movie theater project can move forward. 

Which leads to the question: what do you want the court to know as it formulates a decision? Is this project important to Port Washington? Tell us why in the comments.

Agree about Main St. Movie Theater. It has poor sound and video quality. The A/C makes a lot of noise (when working). Several of the theaters are the size of closets. In my opinion, when the new theater opens they will have to upgrade or close down

The leasing of the movie theater would simply put the shopping center on life support, the vacant retail spaces must be leased for the center to become profitable. It's not just about the theater, it's about conscientiously selecting quality tenants and offering them fair market value leases to prevent turnover. Handled properly, it's a win/win; convenience to us as the residents and profits for the lessees and the landlord/investors.

For all concerned; I have contacted some possible great tenants for one of the vacant stores in the strip malls on Shore Rd. Contacted were Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Trader Joes. Maybe more residents should take the time to e-mail some of the businesses they feel we need in the area. Everyone has an opinion few do anything with their opinin I on the other hand have made things possible. Need to know more I will tell you about what I did when I lived in Elmont. I can give you a link to a very interesting story about myself.

William Your opinion has some merit but if the movie theater does in fact open it is one less vacant store in the mall. It will bring business to at least Carvel. Hopefully it will encourage some growth in the rentals. The other problem is that store owners especially along main street need to take more care of the store fronts. Some have spent a lot of money to renovate and clean up and others do not even clean the awnings above thier door steeps. At least three businesses along Main Street have spent considerable amount of money to spruce things up. Good for them, it's better then leaving town. Anyone have some good ideas to keep or generate business in Port Washington.
