It won’t be long now before you see locals doing their best Riff Raff and Frank N. Furter impressions again outside of The Esquire Theatre.
The cinema, owned by Landmark Theatres, has been closed for almost six months because of water damage from utility problems. It will rise from dormancy June 14, according to a Facebook post from the company.
“We’re back…and better than ever!” the post reads, with a picture of those big comfy seats with armrests and cupholders common at the big Hollywood-type theaters.
The Esquire is home to independent films and midnight showings for costumed cult followers of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and other flicks.
A trip to the building at 6th and Downing revealed a front lobby still in the midst of a renovation. Reached by email, Landmark Theatres spokesperson Hugh Wronski said he would not comment beyond the social media post.
