"Green Light for Movie Theatre Revival"

Edgartown hotelier Mark Snider and members of the Hall family were among a small group that visited the Gazette Thursday morning to announce a 20-year lease agreement for the Capawock in Vineyard Haven and the Strand in Oak Bluffs.

“This is a testament to the Vineyard — so many players were involved and it took longer than we wished but now we are here,” said Mr. Snider, who announced the plan about six weeks ago, but did not secure a signed agreement until this week.

The agreement to lease the Capawock has been signed, Mr. Snider said, and he expects the Strand agreement to be signed next week.
