The long anticipated movie theater in the northwest corner of Hoboken broke ground today during a ceremony involving Mayor Roberts. A movie theater has been planned for Hoboken for several years but seemed as though the project was to be abandoned last year when several deadlines were missed. Hoboken411 was actually there, with video footage.
Of course, this is just a groundbreaking, and shoveling a bit of dirt around doesn’t prevent the project from stalling once more. But that aside, things are looking up for film buffs, who have few options other than crossing the Hudson River. Jersey City’s Newport Mall has a movie theater, but as well not considering the broken seats, ripped screens, broken toilets, and leaky faucets, not to mention Newport’s theater lacks automated ticket kiosks.
