The Berkshire Eagle’s got some video footage of Pittsfield’s new Beacon Cinema.

From what I can tell, it looks beautiful.  Pittsfiled needs its architecture to be revitalized on this level.  I think those are lofts on the upper levels.  The ground level is going to be the The Marketplace Cafe.

Now that the opening’s only a few weeks away, I can start guessing what our first movie will be….that new Nancy Meyers film starring Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin as exes who fall back in love? (update: that comes out Christmas Day.  Damn.)  The Road? Precious?

What will we do if all they offer are movies like that John Cusack end-of-the-world thing?  Or Twilight: New Moon? Go and enjoy our pastries regardless?
