In case you missed it: Sidewalk Film is opening a new movie theater in the basement space of The Pizitz building! The theater will be open 7 days a week, 365 days a year and will show a variety of films that you can’t catch in the average movie theater. Though construction has been going for a little over a month, the official groundbreaking of the site was held today.
