New Williamsburg Greenpoint Cinema Caves to Area's Prevailing Hipster Nazism

That's right. Billyburg-Greenpoint, once the land of many movie palaces, will again have a sleek cinema: The Cassandra on Metropolitan Avenue. But take note, this will be an edgy, arty, indie cinema, complete with theater and cabaret spaces, because the developer knows the cultural fascism he faces: "The Third Reich mentality of the hipsterdom of Williamsburg would chew alive and rip apart anything it didn't approve of," he said. "So, a crass, commercial venture that shat itself out on the streets of Williamsburg, I think would very quickly be wiped under the surface and boycotted and rejected." Sounds like he knows his demographic. [NYO]
