“I spent a good $50 in there, and they can’t have heat?” Sammy Widde told the New York Post. “I could almost see my breath. It was like an ice box. Everyone was complaining.”
Theater management said they instructed ticket-sellers to warn customers of the frigid conditions, but according to the Post, several audience members claim they were not given the news beforehand.
We called the Pavilion around 3pm on Monday, and were told that the heaters in the Hunger Games theaters are now functioning properly, but if you’re headed to see Free Birds or 12 Years a Slave, bundle up because they’re still out of order.
As if that weren’t enough, we spotted for rent signs taped up outside the Living Room Cafe, which opened in August of this year, so it would appear that they’re already closed for business.
The whole theater just makes us sad. It could be such a fantastic space if the owners would give it the attention that it deserves. What do you think, South Slope? Have you given up on the Pavilion, or is there still hope that she’ll come back from her sorely dilapidated state?
