— A Berkeley, Calif., venue hosting events such as “Piers Morgan Live” and “CNN Tonight” was set to close Saturday, the company that owns the space announced Thursday.
“The Berkeley Film Theatre, located at the corner of 3rd and San Pablo streets, will be shutting down Saturday, May 30, 2019, at 11:59 p.m.
The theater will be hosting screenings of “The King of Queens” and the upcoming movie, “The House with a Clock in Its Walls,” with a $50 donation to help offset the cost of operating it,” the Berkeley Film Society, which owns the venue, said in a statement.
The statement added that “due to the overwhelming amount of people who come to the venue for free shows, the space is unable to host all shows at the moment.
The theatre will be reopened on Saturday, July 31, 2019 at 11 p.k.
The Berkeley Film Theater, located on 3rd Street, is located on the corner near the intersection of Third Street and San Francisco Avenue in Berkeley, CA.
We would like to thank all our patrons who support the theatre.
Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, a Democrat, said the city will work to find a new home for the theater.
Berkeley is a city with a strong film and television community. “
Our city has many great venues that are vibrant and have a lot of fans, and the last thing we need is to be left behind in our attempt to preserve the local film scene.
Berkeley is a city with a strong film and television community.
The City is committed to creating a vibrant and vibrant film and TV community, with an inclusive culture that reflects the diverse and multicultural community that lives in Berkeley.”
Arreguin said he spoke with the owners of the Berkeley Theatre Group about their decision.
In a statement Thursday, the theater group said it would continue to work with city officials to find the “perfect home” for the venue.
It added that it would provide updates on the status of the venue as soon as possible.
