After a year-long delay of its original opening date, Nitehawk is finally ready to debut its new location inside Park Slope’s restored Pavilion Theater, across from Prospect Park.
A Facebook post on Nitehawk’s page revealed that the theater will hosts its grand opening on Wednesday, December 19, a date that PR reps for the company confirmed with Curbed. The official opening will be preceded by an invitation-only press preview on Tuesday, December 18.
Last November, Nitehawk founder Matthew Viragh told Curbed during a construction tour that various historic elements of the original theater had been discovered during the renovation phase. These included marble stairs underneath the carpeting, an exposed balcony, and ceiling panels. Nitehawk wanted to preserve as many of these elements as possible and went back to the drawing board to incorporate them into the new multiplex, resulting in delays to its 2017, and later, its early 2018 anticipated opening dates.
