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.
