The historic Cinemart Cinemas in Forest Hills will be holding a fundraiser tonight in order to finance renovations to the theater.

The theater will be showing Quentin Tarantino’s film, “The Hateful Eight,” in both digital format and 35mm film format. Regular admission is $8 and senior admission is $6; both include free popcorn, free drinks, and free refills. The fundraiser proceeds will go towards installing new reclining leather seats as part of Cinemart owner Nicolas Nicolaou’s dedication to providing moviegoers with a comfortable, affordable experience.

The fundraiser comes almost a year after Cinemart was saved from closing down after record-breaking ticket sales for its first-run screening of “American Sniper.” At nearly a century old, Cinemart is one of the city’s oldest independently-run movie theaters.

The Tarantino character must had himself in mind with that 'hateful' thing. He's no more than an aging fiend who gets his rocks off criticizing other cities' law enforcement while he merely sits back and is absorbed by the Hollow-head drug-taking community where he comes from. Wouldn't spend any of my good money to see his lame poorly-directed films.

The theater's showing of this movie and making it a 'bargain' is a disgrace. Mr. Tarrantino, from California, has made himself perfectly clear as to his disgust and disrespect for the New York City Police Department. I am not a policeman or part of their union, just a citizen. The union and police unions around the country have banded together to ask theater goers not to attend this movie because of the hate rhetoric that Mr. Tarrantino has loudly proclaimed. Please stand beside New York's Finest.
