Beloved Forest Hills movie theater Cinemart Cinemas will reopen tonight after it was closed for renovations for almost a month.

The 90-year-old iconic Cinemart located at 106-03 Metropolitan Ave. announced in April that it would take a month off to install new “VIP luxury seats” comparable to the best Manhattan movie theaters that charge $20 or more for a movie ticket.

Now the wait is over, and the movie theater will reopen tonight featuring the new “VIP luxury leather recliners,” a Cinemart representative confirmed to QNS. He also said that the movie theater is still working on some additional cosmetic renovations in the bathrooms and lobby, but the renovations will be done off their regular hours.

“In a few more months, we will deliver to our patrons what we think will be the coziest movie theater in Queens with the latest technology, Real D 3D, and always at the friendliest price policies as we have done through out the years,” the Cinemart representative said.


Cinemart is known for its $9 movie ticket ($6 for children and seniors); the theater is bumping up both prices by a buck ($10 admission, $7 for children and seniors). This is the first price increase in 40 years, according to the Cinemart rep.

As always, the price includes a delicious cone of popcorn done the good old-fashioned way.

Cinemart opens their new chapter with sci-fi franchise “X-Men: Apocalypse” with shows at 7, 8, 9 and 10 p.m. as well as with Jane Austen’s “Love and Friendship” period drama with shows at 7 and 9:15 p.m.
