The Moviehouse has announced they will re-open under new ownership this Spring. Carol came to the realization that the time had come to pass the torch to a new generation to keep the spirit and vitality of the Moviehouse alive. New proprietors David Maltby and Chelsea Altman see in this iconic property a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to honor The Moviehouse’s history while bringing new energy and vision, building on its huge base of support to keep The Moviehouse growing, relevant, and vibrant. David is a founding partner of Empire Square Group, a real estate investment firm, and Chelsea is the co-owner of six bars and restaurants in Brooklyn. Both have deep artistic roots, as Chelsea had a successful career as a New York actress appearing on and off-Broadway, as well as in roles for film and television. David has been an award-winning rock and roll drummer, music, and theatre producer. Chelsea and David see owning The Moviehouse as an opportunity to combine their passions. While building on this long-established and beloved institution, they hope to add their fresh and unique perspective on film, entertainment, and nightlife to enhance the moviegoing experience. They plan to leverage the deep local community of artists, actors, and filmmakers, many of whom are their friends, to get everyone involved to ensure The Moviehouse remains a social and cultural center for all, with special programming and unique events.
