One of the flashpoint issues on the Community Board 3 agenda for the SLA subcommittee is the Sunshine Lounge concept at 143 East Houston. As we first reported last fall, Landmark Cinemas is pushing to transform its popular movie house into a “dinner-and-a-movie” pairing, which would also include full liquor. CB3 is not completely on board, having already forced their withdrawal back in December. At said meeting, Sunshine rep Mike Fant indicated that the lease is up for renewal later this year, and that on-premise rights would help with the higher rents. Even though they’re currently turning profits.

Reps will reappear Monday night to try again, and with an updated application. The completed paperwork now includes a proposed food and cocktail menu for the Sunshine Lounge. It’s reprinted below.

Do you think it’s a good idea for the Sunshine Cinema to start serving food and booze? Weigh in!
