Cinemart Cinemas in Forest Hills

In the latest sign of its resurgence, Forest Hills‘ Cinemart Cinemas will be screening next month the live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast,” the first Disney film to be shown there in a decade.

The “tale as old as time,” which stars Emma Watson, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Kline and Luke Evans, will be shown in standard definition and in 3D starts on Friday, March 17, at the five-screen Cinemart located at 106-03 Metropolitan Ave.

Just two years ago, it looked as if the 90-year-old Cinemart’s future was in doubt. The owners installed a $300,000 digital projection system so it could show first-run films; due to changes in cinematic technology, the theater had been limited to running only second-run films on a 35 mm projector.

Cinemart Cinemas held a special, first-run screening of the Academy Award-nominated American Soldier in February 2015, and the screening’s box office success helped keep the theater going. Last year, the owners continued upgrading the moviehouse, installing recliner seating and 3D projection. Most recently, according a post on the theater’s Facebook page, they upgraded the concession stand.

Tickets for “Beauty and the Beast” at Cinemart start at $11 per adult, $8 for children or seniors, and $8 for matinees. Click here for more details.
