In August 2014, the small independent movie theater located on the corner of Henry and Orange Streets in Brooklyn Heights closed after 44 years.
Developers Mettle Property Group and JMH Development purchased the landmarked building later that year for $7.5 million, according to Curbed.
The owners worked with renowned architect Morris Adjmi to adapt the space into five boutique condo units—one being a duplex maisonette with a private entrance on Orange Street. The ground floor will be used used for retail.
The design incorporates the old structure, sans the white paint, restoring the original brick facade. The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the project in June 2015.
