Kevin Smith, an actor, and director, just acquired the Atlantic Moviehouse, which prompted him to become a filmmaker. During his boyhood, he liked to attend the theater with his father and would often skip school to do so. Smith announced the news on social media, indicating that a transaction will be closed, and he and his wife, Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, as well as their business partners, would become co-owners. Smith plans to make some alterations to the theater, including creating a mural in the lobby incorporating characters from his films.
Kevin also intends to stage live performances, develop a Merry Marvel Movie Society for Marvel Studios fans, and open a film school on the site. He plans to relocate to an apartment above the theater. In an interview with NJ Advance Media, the filmmaker said,
“This is not an investment transaction.” This is about owning a little piece of my own cinematic history, a structure that helped shape the director I would become.”

All About Kevin Smith
Kevin Smith had to sell his comic book collection in order to finance his debut feature picture, Clerks. It won multiple accolades at the Sundance Film Festival and the Cannes International Film Festival before being purchased by Harvey Weinstein and given a restricted theatrical distribution. Smith’s next picture, Mallrats, was a box office flop, but he made a return with Chasing Amy, which grossed $12 million. Smith then provided a string of successful films such as Dogma, Jay, and Silent Hill. Clerks II and Bob Strike Back.
Seth Rogen’s next picture, Zack and Mimi Make a P**no, bombed at the box office and almost wrecked his career. His following film, Cop Out, did well and was his last with a major studio. He proceeded to create low-budget pictures, some of which fared well financially while others did not. Kevin Smith has directed episodes of several television series and acted in films such as Scream 3, Live Free or Die Hard, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and others.
