Exactly a month ago I posted an update on Long Beach Cinemas, with the promise of bringing you more news soon. Well, just like the theater with their March teaser-LOOK 4 GRAND RE OPENING sign, I got a little delayed, until now. This morning I finally got an update (PRAISE THE LORD!), albeit a minor one (god dammit!).
I am now hearing that the Long Beach Cinemas Grand Re-Opening holdup is due to “equipment order delivery delay.” This morning I took a peak inside the theater, saw some folks and tried to get as much additional info as I could.
- Equipment Delay? Yes.
- Any changes to the theater? New seats.
- I told one gentlemen (who looked important) how many of us residents are hoping for some independent films: He said, “We know. Right now we are just hoping to get open soon.”
So there you go, folks. Long Beach Cinemas is still allegedly opening. I don’t plan on dancing my pants off in celebration until I actually see the theater open with my own eyes. In the meantime, we have Jaws on the beach this Saturday night: Lafayette Beach @ 8pm. Be there or be shark chum.
