New Screens Pop Up Across NY City

   May 31, 2017-Independent movie theaters are popping up across Manhattan, the main borough of New York City, writes the New York Post. The screening boom is spurred by population growth, introduction of dining-with-a-movie houses and filling in after theater closures in past years. The indie theaters are not from the national circuits, and program a healthy dose of off-beat and sophisticated specialty movies.
   “The boomlet follows several years that saw many indie movie houses close,” writes NY Post’s Claire Atkinson. The willingness of theater circuits and moneymen to invest in brick-and-mortar
is a vote of confidence in exhibition, which is being squeezed by on-demand video.
   The theaters outfits in the building boom are Alamo Drafthouse, iPic Theaters, billionaire Mark Cuban's Landmark chain, Metrograph, Nitehawk Cinema and financier/film buff Charles Cohen's The Quad.
