The long-anticipated Williamsburg Cinemas on the corner of Grand Street and Driggs is set to open any day now, probably in early December, according to DNAinfo. The seven-screen theater, which will show a mix of indie and mainstream first-run films, was on track to open early this month, but Hurricane Sandy delayed the final inspections by city agencies. Owner Harvey Elgart also owns Cobble Hill Cinemas and Kew Gardens Cinemas. Until recently, there were no movie theaters in Williamsburg, but now the neighborhood has quite a few, including Nitehawk Cinema, Spectacle Theater and indiScreen.
