Nitehawk Cinema & Alamo Drafthouse closed due to coronavirus
The coronavirus pandemic is hitting all aspects of the entertainment industry, with movies being just as affected as live music. The new James Bond film, No Time to Die, was due in April but has been moved to the fall; A Quiet Place 2 was supposed to be out next week but has been postponed indefinitely, as has the live action Mulan; and Fast & Furious 9 has been moved to 2021. Nitehawk Cinema, which has locations in Williamsburg and Park Slope, has announced they'll be suspending all programming till further notice:
As previously communicated, we've been tracking the status of Coronavirus in the city and the best practices to keep our customers and employees healthy and safe, as well as dealing with film distributors pushing back release dates on new films. It is with many heavy hearts that we have decided to suspend all programming and indefinitely shut down, starting today.
For those of you who have purchased tickets to any of our first run showtimes, you will receive a E-Credit to your email today. For special event tickets, our Cinema Department will reach out to you with further instructions and keep you posted on rescheduled events.
We value being a part of our local neighborhoods and the NYC film community as a whole. The health and safety of our staff and guests continues to be our top priority and we look forward to serving you again when it's determined that we can do so in a reliably safe manner and when movie attendance levels can return to normal.
UPDATE: Alamo Drafthouse has also temporarily closed it's Brooklyn and Yonkers locations until further notice, and Tribeca Film Festival has been postponed.
