Do workers, lengths of drainage pipes and heavy construction equipment add up to the start of fitting out Front Street in downtown Hartford for its first tenant, a movie theater?
This week, there has been a noticeable uptick in construction activity at Front Street, as developer H.B. Nitkin Group had promised a couple weeks back.
Property Line will be watching in the coming weeks to see how construction unfolds. The operator of the theater, Spotlight Theatres Inc. of Atlanta, hasn’t responded to e-mails in recent weeks.
Nitkin said the theater will be ready this summer, but wouldn’t be more specific about exactly when it would open.
Also, no word on what theater seating was chosen from the “Pick Your Seat” promotion last summer.
