What Should Happen to Cedar Lane Cinemas?

How should the space be used? Movie theater? Retail? Share your ideas in the comments

Teaneck’s only movie theater, .

Since the . Local merchants worried the closure could harm business and, so far, no new operators have expressed interest in taking over the historic cinema.

The landlord would like to keep a theater or entertainment venue on Cedar Lane, and converting the space to retail would be costly, a consultant for the landlord told Patch.

The cost of upgrading to a digital format has become a challenge for small theaters across the country. Some have turned to community donations while others have been forced to close. 

What do you think should come of the Cedar Lane theater? Would you prefer it to remain a movie theater or be converted to storefronts? What about a community theater for plays? Share your ideas in the comments below

One pretty easy thing that can be done is to make the Cedar Lane business district website functional. It's outdated, and it's hit or miss on listing special events (eg trick or treating).

i know trees have leaves that fall once once a year. big deal. as far trees and branches falling...talk to me in twenty years when they are mature. what is nicer than a tree lined street? i still think contacting local universities with marketing depts and suggest fixing cedar as a course or an internship to get some fresh ideas for free. i heard louies is going to be another pharmacy, OMG.

I think someone has to come in renovate it-bring it up to today's standards and open it again as a movie theater. Why should we give in and go to a Multiplex. With all the money that we pay in taxes etc there should be a way to give someone tax breaks etc to come in and put money into it to do this.

Teaneck already has a venue for that at the Puffin Center at the Teaneck Conservancy.
