A group of city real estate investors have purchased Forest Hills’ Midway Theater building for $20.5 million, the Real Deal reported.
Brick Capital’s Eric Roth, BLDG Management’s Lloyd Goldman and Eastern Consolidated’s Brian Ezratty purchased the 73-year-old building, located at 108-22 Queens Blvd., which is home to United Artists Regal Cinema.
The sale is listed among recent transactions on Brick Capital’s website.
The investors intend for the theater to remain intact since Regal Cinema has a long-term lease, but it could eventually be viewed as a development opportunity.
