Curtain closes for Strathmore Cinemas in Aberdeen; big change in store

By David P. Willis, Asbury Park Press

ABERDEEN - The projector is off at Bow Tie Strathmore Cinemas in Aberdeen.

The cinema's sign is covered. A township building permit for the interior's demolition, dated last Thursday, is on the door.

Replacing the Strathmore at 1055 Route 34 will be the craft brewery and brew pub Alternate Ending Beer Co. The pub is expected to open in the spring of 2020.

Mayor Fred Tagliarini said the building's landlord expects to start the renovation process next month. Nearby stores also will have new facades too.

"The stores will have a matching look to the restaurant," Tagliarini said. "He is going to renovate the entire shopping center."

Alternate Ending plans to split the 9,000-square-foot building down the middle, with half dedicated to its production space and half for the taproom, which will seat approximately 150 people with additional standing capacity.

Founder and head brewer Scott Novick has said the taproom will also include a room with a 250-inch movie screen for playing classic films, kids' movies and newer releases for free on at least a weekly basis. It also will be available for private parties and corporate events.
