Fresh Pond reopens, Zeitgeist moves, and Plough & Stars plans to reopen
By CAMILLE DODERO  |  February 16, 2006

Fresh Pond Cinemas has reopened after going dark for a few weeks in January after Entertainment Cinemas, a South Easton–based company that also oversees theaters in Leominster and South Dennis, purchased the property from Loews. Entertainment Cinemas originally built the Alewife-area cineplex and then sold it to Loews, so the transaction’s something of a homecoming. EC’s Jo-Ann Overstreet says the new-old ownership may eventually make “updates and improvements” to the premises, but for now “everything’s the same.” . . . In Inman Square, the Zeitgeist Gallery will be relocating around the corner to 186 Hampshire Street on March 1. A more “music-based” venue called the Lily Pad will supplant the Zeitgeist, under the direction of the building’s co-owner and resident pianist Gill Aharon. . . . Over on Mass Ave, the Plough & Stars finally has official plans to reopen in March 2006, under the new management of Tim Carey (former JJ Foley’s bartender), Jennifer Lockwood, and chef Brendan Curtis. Promising the old standbys of televised English football, live music, and well-poured beer, Curtis insists that not much will change except a “a fresh coat of paint” and a dinner menu. (One other minor change to the décor: no more of those beloved napkin portraits).
