Brooklyn Heights Cinema Offers Reprieve From Superstorm

The Brooklyn Heights Cinema continues to provide refuge from the storm, as owner Kenn Lowy discusses in a profile in today’s New York Observer. He tells the newspaper, “We all live in the area, I’m 10 minutes away, so why not.”

Lowy says he wasn’t about to let Hurricane Sandy shut him down: “We were open last year for Hurricane Irene and we got a lot of people in, so we figured we would do it again. People get cabin fever. It’s good to get out if you can. It’s all locals (and) everybody’s walking. If you can stay open, it’s smart because you have a captive audience.” See the full Observer story here, and the Cinema’s schedule here. (Photo: (remster_9/Flickr)
