Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine greeted WSR by phone Monday night with the words, “It’s real!”
He was referring to the plan announced this morning for the Metro Theater to become a “multi-screen cinema center, with restaurant facilities and community meeting rooms on a rental basis,” by Metro owner Albert Bialek.
Levine said the magic words: “I spoke to the owners of the entity and they have signed a lease.”
The name of the entity is being withheld for fear of inducing competition.
That’s it for now!
