OCEAN TOWNSHIP: The newly-renovated Cine Grand Middlebrook movie theater opens tonight, Jan. 20 at 6 p.m.
The theater, located at 1502 Route 35 in Ocean Township, has been closed since early 2016 after the decision was made to completely renovate the facility.
Cine Grand is a Netherlands-based international movie theater chain which began leasing the theater in 2014, after Bow Tie Cinemas allowed its lease to expire.
The exterior of the buildings has been given a paint job and new railings have been installed. Workers have been on the scene daily performing interior renovations for the last few months.
The exact details of the interior renovations are not clear but a response to a Facebook comment stated that they will include, "significantly more lobby space, vastly improved lighting and seating and a very unique ambiance."
The following is tonight's showings:
The Bye Bye Man - 8 p.m. Hidden Figures - 7:40 p.m. Live By Night - 8:40 p.m. Monster Trucks - 8:05 p.m. Patriots Day - 7:55 p.m. Silence - 9:55 p.m. Sing - 7:45 p.m., 10:25 p.m. Sleepless - 8:15 p.m. Split - 7:10 p.m. 10:05 p.m. xXx: Return Of Xander Cage - 7:30p.m., 10:20 p.m.
Word On The Shore hopes to take a tour of the theater next week and we'll post another story with pictures as soon as possible.
