Palmers in Works for Warwick Place Along With Theater
Does the combination of a high-end restaurant and movie theater sound good to you?
We'll have more details soon, but what we do know is that the Andover restaurant run by Swampscott native John Palmer Ingalls is branching out and opening a second location in the first floor of the new 38,000-square-foot commercial building.
And next to the restaurant, Ingalls is planning to operate a new movie theater as well. The theater will have 108 seats, according to plans filed with the town.
This past summer, in light of the news that a theater was definitely in the plans for the development, we asked readers if they thought Marblehead needed a cinema to replace the old Warwick, which closed in 1999. The response was mixed.
Many readers enthusiastically said "yes," some thought it would become a North Shore destination, but several others said the demise of the Warwick Theater was telling for the future prospects of any new cinema.
So with definite plans now for a theater next to Palmers, what do you think? Does the combination sound good to you? Should the theater just play the latest films, tap into indies, foreign films, what would work best?
