The Sunnyside Post reports that the building that houses Sunnyside movie theater – Center Cinemas – was sold and may eventually be demolished and turned into residential units. The 16,080 square foot building was sold in December 2012 by Dime Savings Bank for $6.675 million. The buyer is a new Astoria-based firm called 2-25 Queens Blvd. Corporation.
