The Screening Zone, an alternative cinema venue in Montclaire, New Jersey as
been “acquired in principle” by the Clearview Cinema Group, Inc. Originally
founded by actress Olympia Dukakis as a live performance space, The Zone will
now become a piece of Clearview’s “community-based movie theater” mini-empire.
According to AOL News, they recently acquired two other theaters in New Jersey
and are expanding one site from a five-plex to a seven-plex. Clearview hopes to
continue, “placing heavy emphasis on art and independent films.”

“Strategically, these transactions will further strengthen our presence in Essex
County. Clearview’s unique mix of film offerings, community focus and emphasis
on creating a quality entertainment experience has met with excellent response
in Essex County,” explained A. Dale Mayo, Clearview’s Chairman and C.E.O.
