Cinema Facade In Detail (Architect’s Newspaper)

Since the Commodore shut down in 2002, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, has been without a proper movie theater. This deficit will soon end with the opening of The Cassandra, a cinema/café/cabaret on Metropolitan Avenue. More than filling a gap, this new film venue will embody the spirit of the neighborhood’s more recent demographic, catering to a “cinephile audience” with reperatory and first-run fare as well as “salacious fun-loving, late-night programming,” according to the theater’s website.
