The NY Daily News reports that the Alpine Theater has been saved.
It has been sold to " Queens flick magnate " Nicolas Nicolaou who will renovate the Alpine this spring. In addition to its principal use as a multiplex movie theater, there will be a " performance space " for live local theater productions.
Unlike my April 1 post, the above story is actually true!
To Nick Nicolaou: welcome to the neighborhood. Everyone, see you at the Alpine!!
