Back in October of 2015, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) approved plans to redevelop the multi-story Pavilion cinema, at 188 Prospect Park West, located on the corner of 14th Street in southern Park Slope, into a smaller movie theater and 24 condominium units. Those plans have now been scrapped entirely, in favor of a simpler renovation, the New York Times reported. The existing Pavilion structure, acquired by an anonymous LLC in August for $28 million, will be renovated to accommodate a Nitehawk Cinema, dubbed Nitehawk Prospect Park. The new theater will include seven screens for a total of 650 seats, two bars, dining services, and a restored interior atrium. Existing operations at the Pavilion will end in October, and the renovation is expected to take a year to complete. Hidrock Properties still owns the adjacent single-story property where an expansion would have occurred. Of course, any exterior alterations that go into the the cinema renovation will have to be approved by the LPC.
