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. The Center Cinemas owner, Rudy Prashad, put a $5.2 million bid on the property, but obviously it wasn’t accepted.
Restaurants Unite for Sandy Help (R.U.S.H) and Sunnyside Cares join together to offer an extravaganza featuring music, food, libation, children’s activities and a monster raffle at Sunnyside Community Services (GMAP). All money raised will go directly to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. Consider the following: $10 all-you-can-eat bracelet; $10 bar bracelet; $15 combo bar-food bracelet; and $5 children’s bracelet.
