What happened to the Coliseum?
Does anyone know what's happened to the Coliseum Movie Theater on 181st and Broadway? A week ago, we noticed that no movie showings were listed on Fandango or other online sites. A walk today revealed that the theater looks abandoned!
Having a movie theater in the neighborhood is a great amenity, even if we wish the selection could have been more exciting or the theater more imaginatively managed (e.g. independent film festival or local filmmaker screenings anyone?) The next closest theater is the Magic Johnson theater at 125th.
If the Coliseum is indeed closed what would you like to see happen to the space? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
