Movie-lovers who’ve been waiting patiently for a huge Alamo Drafthouse cinema complex at 28 Liberty St. will have to wait a few months more.
We first reported in 2017 that the luxury movie house chain had signed a 40,000-square-foot lease with landlord Fosun and would open the theaters in 2018. Later reports claimed it would open in 2019 or this winter.
Now, Alamo Drafthouse rep Brandy Fons assured us, “It is indeed coming and the expected opening date is summer 2020.”
The long gestation is likely due to the complexity of construction several floors below ground in a landmarked building.
