Featured: New York, NY – Village East Theater

EAST VILLAGE—After what feels like an eternity (though permits were issued only 16 months ago) the Village East movie theater at 181 Second Avenue has lost its scaffolding and netting and unveiled its restored look. The East Village movie palace was a Yiddish theater back in the day, and has a fairly detailed facade that need fixing. Work included rebuilding masonry and parapets, as well as new roofing. The place was looking a bit sickly a few years back. [CurbedWire Staff]
