Landmark Theatres announced today that they have come to an agreement with Balgobind Jaiswal, the Clay Theatre landlord, to keep the century-old cinema open for the short term.
"We hope continuing operation at the Clay will give all interested parties the opportunity to pursue mutually beneficial remedies," said Landmark CEO Ted Mundorff.
"I want to thank Mr. Jaiswal, our landlord, for the amicable arrangement that we completed just two days prior to our otherwise expected last day of operation. He went above and beyond and we are so pleased we could reach this resolution."
Jonathan Safran Foer talks Meat-Eating, Public Misconceptions, and Why He’s Just Another Stroller Dad
If Jonathan Safran Foer was a stock, and you had purchased him back in 2002, you’d be rich now. That was the year the Princeton grad, at the ripe old age of 25, published his first novel, Everything Is Illuminated (Houghton Mifflin), to great acclaim. In 2005 he followed it with a second, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (Houghton Mifflin), narrated by a 9-year-old boy whose father died on September 11. His most recent book, a work of non-fiction titled Eating Animals (Little, Brown and Co.), will be released in paperback this month. In it, Safran Foer turns his gimlet eye to commercial fishing and factory farming, which the vegetarian author takes to task through a mixture of reporting and personal memoir.

It's gorgeous days like this that make me want to be as close to the park as possible at all times. My plan is to pretty much live there for the sunny season, without, you know, actually having to live in the park.

Cha Cha Cha claims the best sauteed mushrooms known to fungi-kind (the hostess said she ate them every day for four months) and serves them (smelling delightfully of garlic and wine) in a decor that smashes Catholic idolatry with the essence of Carmen Miranda and a splash of luau.
