The Lower East Sideís hip movie house, the Landmark Sunshine Cinema, will close when its lease expires in January 2018, The Post has learned.

The 30,000-square-foot building at 139 E. Houston St. has been sold for $31.5 million to developers East End Capital and K Property Group, which will convert it to a mixed-use development with retail and upstairs office space. The site includes 20,000 square feet of air rights.

They come, they go.
The Post had a good article on the re-opening of the Quad, which I remember from school days. Iím sure I went there, though I canít recall what I saw. It was not a revial house per se; I went to those more often: Cinema Village (still there, I think,) the Elgin (turned into a dance theater,) Bleeker St Cinema (gone,) the Waverly (now the IFC.) They had smoking sections (and not restricted to tobacco.)
