Yes, actually we will have a screen that comes down on stage so that we will be equipped to show films or hold film festivals if need be. Of course, the showings won't be on a regular schedule as you would have at a theater designated to show movies regularly (such as IFC), but that is a part of what we hope to do every so often.

White Eagle will be a multipurpose space with the ability to accommodate live theater, live music, film, dance, lectures and the like.

We are already being approached by a great number of reputable groups interested in working with us to bring programming as soon as we can get our doors open.

It is great to hear. I hope that my previous message was seen as conveying frustration at delays experienced with the BD. I wish you very well, and really look forward to your opening as well as Madame Claude's as soon as you complete your endeavor.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for taking an interest. Things are moving along more slowly than we hoped, but steadily. We are excited about bringing a great theater and venue, and we want to do it right. There are a lot of intricate details that have to go in to retro-fitting a 100+ year old building.

The first step was to rip out everything but the walls and the floor, that is gone and done. The guts are now being installed and we hope to have an event as soon as it is safe for the public.

There are a lot of great details that we have to be very careful to preserve such as the original tin ceiling and the gorgeous original stained glass.

We are well under way, and have a huge team of consultants and engineers that are working towards making this happen as soon as possible.

TQ is right. we have been occupying ourselves in the mean time as well with our Art/Performance space at Merseles Studios (339 Newark above Monaco Lock Co.). About one month ago we opened our doors to the public. At Merseles we have a performance space, gallery and 9 artist studios.

If you have questions feel free to ask, I'll do my best to answer.

You can find us on facebook if you search "Jersey City Theater Center" or at jctcenter.org.

Spring was always an unrealistic goal, but it is moving along. They recently got several approvals on their plans, so stuff is happening now and should move pretty quickly.

Also, Merseles Studios is right next door above Monaco Locks and is being done by the same group doing White Eagle Hall. If you're not familiar with Merseles Studios, it's a performance space and gallery. They've also had some music events there, as well as a weekly puppet show for kids. So stuff is definitely afoot.

Technology isn't required, just accountability. Both the State DCA and JC Housing inspectors issue forms with detailed notes of their inspections, no tablets in sight.

I was going to be snarky in my reply, but others have said the same, using nicer words. In the end, I do not know of ANY business in JC that has been able to open on their stated date. Without fail, it is always due to "complications" with the Buildings Department inspectors... make what you will out of that. It is a shame that the city allows this to continue. As Frinjc suggests, all inspectors should be forced to use a tablet to issue reports and inspection notes so they can be held accountable. This is pure graft and corruption. You want people and businesses to come here: make palatable and fair and it will happen.

It's still under construction, I imagine it's delayed for any of the multitude of reasons projects of that scale get delayed (permit issues, unexpected complications/costs, etc.). Same reasons Monty's Public House isn't open yet.

They have events scheduled for November so I presume they expect to at least do a soft opening by then.

I suspect one city inspector came and voiced issues and (costly) remedies that were beyond the scope of the initial project. Most likely this was only voiced and not put in writing. Most likely some of the remedies that were suggested are not actually part of the code but the existing owners/architects don't know it or do not want to brush off city inspectors.

FYI I heard that there will be soon a public meeting addressing the Building Department deficiencies. On my end I think that every inspector should be provided a tablet from which to issue written reports. This would be their final word while making them accountable. Every owner should have to address these points and only these. If these points are shown not to be in the code, inspectors would be subject to penalties and/or retraining. Addressing the points would also complete the inspection regardless of who comes to verify.

We pretend to have a first world city but we have a 3rd word BD.

As recently as March, they were saying "late spring," but it doesn't look like anything's moving forward there.
