The experience includes a state-of-the-art HD projection system with over 1,850 seats in a restored theatre. They can either sit on the balcony like the glory days of the silver screen or they can sit downstairs.
The Executive Director of The Provident Bank Foundation, Jane Kurek claims that they are ecstatic to provide an opportunity for all families to enjoy these different movies over the summer. The lineup has six great films that are always a hit with families.
State Theatre Vice President of Development and Strategic Partnerships, Anna Marie Gewirtz wanted to present affordable programming that is geared towards creating an experience for families. It also provides year-round events free of charge within the community. They are hoping to reach a record number of families this summer, with a goal of 7,500 people
Boraie Development is also proud to sponsor the events over the summer. It is a leader in the real estate market, providing services in all areas of urban real estate. It provides services like property management, sales and marketing, and real estate development.

Boraie Development is led by the 73-year-old president Omar Boraie who dreamed of rebuilding New Brunswick. He started in 1972 when the streets were still dangerous at night. Boraie viewed it as an opportunity. He began buying up the vacant and rundown buildings on the block and began to change them into office space.
As he continued to create beautiful, spacious office space, Boraie recognized there was a need for incredible residential units as well, creating condominium buildings modeled after New York City. The building sold out in two months.
