The Brooklyn Heights Cinema has not died. It exists, in the form of a digital projector, some seats, and sundry items, in storage. Its hoped-for re-opening, if and when it happens, will likely be somewhere outside, but not too far from, the Heights. Interviewed by Matthew Taub of Brooklyn Brief and published in the Eagle, Cinema owner Kenn Lowy tells of the frustration he’s encountered to date seeking a new venue. He also takes the Brooklyn Heights Association and others to task for opposing plans for a new building at the Cinema’s old location that would have included space for a one screen movie house.
