Another Local Movie Theater Bites The Dust..

Well, yet another local movie theater has shut its doors. This one, the Fine Arts Cinema, was on Central Ave. in Greenburgh. This theater was know for showing independent films. A recent Journal News article stated that since large multiplex chains are now starting to show independent films more and more, that is drawing away business from the little theaters. This theater has been operating in Greenburgh for 34 years. It's a shame whats going on on Central Ave., I bet this will become yet another useless furniture store or bank. I can hope at least a good, down-to-earth resturant would come of this, or at least the vacant Treasure Island next door. But the Town Of Greenburgh makes opening a business so hard and intimidating that I doubt it will be anything good that opens in either parcel.
