Landlord Wants to Tear Down Brooklyn Heights Cinema, Build 5-Story Building

The next little N. Henry Street building to go.
The landlord of the Brooklyn Heights Cinema wants to tear down the sweet little Brooklyn Heights Cinema at 70 Henry Street to make way for a new five-story structure, the Brooklyn Paper reports.

Next Wednesday, building owner "Tom Caruana" will present plans for a new structure at 70 Henry St. at Community Board 2’s Landmarks Committee, according to the Brooklyn Paper.

The theater’s proprietor, Kenn Lowy, told the paper that he won’t let the theater disappear — even if it means moving the cinema to DUMBO.

Lowy bought the cinema last year from Norman Adie, who was convicted in a Ponzi scheme. At that time, Lowy signed a one year lease.

Here's a puzzler: Property Shark lists the building's owner as Ridgeton Poultry Inc. as of last June 22.
