Why the delay in the opening of the new Williamsburg Cinemas? Because the architects can't quite figure out how to fit all seven theaters into the building, which is going up on the corner of Driggs and Grand. "Fitting seven auditoriums on an 8,500-square-foot site is difficult," notes architect Robert McCall. Which doesn't really explain why the issue has come up at this point in the construction process, or why a seven-theater, 8,500-square-foot building was deemed necessary in the first place.
