*While the theater’s owners still book indies and foreign films, concession sales during mainstream flicks help to keep the lights on.

David Nedrow, co-owner of the Grandview Theatre with his wife Jennifer Stancel, said business has been growing since they reopened the first-run, single-screen theater Dec. 4, 2009.
“When we opened, there were some nights we didn’t have anybody,” he said. “Since March, we’ve never not had anybody for the day.”
Nedrow and Stancel purchased the lease to the 87-year-old building in November 2008 and spent a year and about $150,000 making upgrades to the theater. Among the changes were completely new bathrooms, renovation of the concession stand, the cleaning of the screen and removal of a glass pane above the concession stand through which films were projected. Nedrow said that setup made the frame hard to see.
“A lot of people think we have a new screen now,” he said. “It’s so much brighter.”
For their work, Nedrow and Stancel won the Grandview Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Person of the Year award.

Awesome news! Wow it’s going to look great!
Also, do we know who took over the spot? I guessed once Candle Lab moved out that the rumor that Studio 35 would put a tap room in there… sure enough someone knocked down the wall between the buildings to open it up. I hope my speculation is correct :)February 19, 2016 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1115204
