The lights are out and the popcorn is gone from a decades-old independent movie theater on Middletown Avenue — which new nonprofit owners aim to convert into a bustling campus for affordable early childhood education.

These are the latest developments with the Cine 4 movie theater property at 371 Middletown Ave./ 25 Flint St. in Quinnipiac Meadows near the North Haven border. The theater showed its latest films last week, screening “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris” and “Elvis.”

According to the city’s online land records database, on August 5, the Friends Center for Children Inc. purchased the 1.93-acre parking lot and movie theater property from Soffer Associates for $1.3 million. The city last appraised the property at $1,070,900.

The new owner of the property – a Quaker-influenced Fair Haven Heights-based early childhood education program – plans to turn the former movie theater site into offices, classrooms, a library and outdoor play spaces for young children and daycares. They also plan to preserve one of the theater’s four screening rooms as a community space for watching movies.

The closure and sale of Ciné 4, meanwhile, marks the end of five decades of operation of this independent theater as one of the last cinemas in the city.

The four-screen independent cinema opened in 1971.

Theater has survived the transition from film to digital. It reopened after a COVID-19 pandemic-induced hiatus, and after watching all other non-college cinemas in the city except the Criterion cinemas on Temple Street close shop as a suburban cineplex, then home streaming services took over the industry. Now he also packed.

“There’s a beginning and an end to everything,” second-generation Cine 4 co-owner Stu Soffer told the Independent with a terse lack of sentimentality in a brief phone interview on Wednesday. “It is what it is.”

He said cinema property has been “in the market for a long, long time.”

He praised the new owner of the property – a nonprofit led by local early childhood education advocate Allyx Schiavone – for its plans to breathe new life into the site.

“Allyx is a very good person,” he said. “Very capable. Very smart. She’s a good woman and she knows what she’s doing. (Click here to read an August 2021 article by retired New Haven Register reporter Randy Beach on reopening of Ciné 4 during the pandemic, and on the story of Soffer and his family who have been running the local cinema for decades.)

So. Now that Cine 4 is no more, what happens next to 371 Middletown Ave. ?

In a Wednesday afternoon phone call with Independent, Friends Center for Children executive director Allyx Schiavone detailed her nonprofit’s ambitious plans to transform the former cinema site into a vibrant center teaching, learning and play for young children and their families.

Schiavone’s Quaker-influenced early childhood education program currently operates from locations on East Grand Avenue and Blake Street.

It provides full-time childcare for 50 weeks a year to a racially and economically diverse group of young children aged three months to five years, as well as free housing for its teachers and tuition fees. school fees for participating families.

“The early childhood education industry is in crisis,” Schiavone told the Independent. “It’s a sector of our community that is underfunded. It’s undervalued. It’s marginalized. … The Friends Center is committed to doing all we can to ensure that children, Families and educators thrive in a learning community for infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

She said her organization recognizes the “tremendous supply and demand problem” of many more New Haveners seeking affordable education and child care options than are currently available. And she said that , for the Friends Center to significantly increase salaries in an industry that consistently underpays its work, “we need to achieve a certain scale so that we can have sliding-scale tuition revenue that can allow us to raise wages.

In that vein, she said, the Friends Center is looking to expand significantly across the city.

In addition to its current East Grand Avenue and Blake Street daycares, it plans to open a third site in the future Dixwell Plaza redevelopment to be built by ConnCORP. It then plans to build a fourth child care site in the new Friends Center Cine 4 theater on Middletown Avenue.

According to a Friends Center growth Schiavone shared with the Independent, the group plans to grow over the next five years from serving 122 children and employing 39 staff today, to serving 360 children and employing 118. staff members by June 2027.

What exactly is the Friends Center envisioning for the former theater site on Middletown Avenue/Flint Street?

Schiavone said his organization is still in the very early stages of development of this project. She said she plans to meet with an architect about this site next week.

Nevertheless, the current vision is to convert the cinema building into centralized administrative and academic offices for the Friends Center, a library of teaching materials, a catering kitchen and a teacher training center.

The offices will be occupied by the organization’s seven program directors, she said. When fully operational, the site should be able to accommodate nearly 100 children and will be supported by 38 educators.

“We plan to keep one of the cinemas,” Schiavone said of Cine 4’s existing four cinema screens. ”, and generally use this room as “presentation space. »

As for the sea of ​​asphalt parking that currently surrounds the old cinema building, she said it will be transformed into “green space for our outdoor playgrounds” and other more aesthetically pleasing outdoor parts of the planned new campus of preschool.

She added that the Friends Center is currently fundraising and applying for grants to help defray the cost of renovating the existing cinema building.

The five-year growth plan that Schiavone shared with the Independent underscores just how urgent the need is for the kinds of services the Friends Center wants to continue to provide on a larger scale.

“New Haven is a child care wasteland,” the plan reads. “For 10 New Haven families seeking infant and toddler care, there are only two spaces available. These spaces are dramatically unaffordable for families and vary widely in quality and hours. According to According to the United States Department of the Treasury, for child care to be considered affordable, a New Haven family with one infant must have an annual income of $315,000.The median income in New Haven is $41,000.

“The next five years of expansion,” this plan continues, “propels us to increase equity while we think about our community and the system at the same time.”

Growing up just outside of New Haven, Schiavone said she’s been to Cine 4 countless times over the years. “I grew up going to the movies. My sister had her first kiss in that theater,” she said. “Everyone I talked to has a connection to that place.”

Decades later, she says, she even has a bit of her hometown’s theater history in her current home. “For my 16th birthday, one of my best friends climbed” onto the theater marquee and “borrowed” the oversized red letter “A” that was used to spell the title of a film screening at Cine 4 at the era .

“It’s a space that means a lot,” Schiavone said. “There is a lot of positive energy” in this former cinema. And, since the Friends Center is “in the space of providing joyful learning and opportunities for children, families and teachers,” she said, she wants to bring that same positive energy into a new chapter of the history of this property.

PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) — Local law enforcement on Tuesday tested new virtual reality training technology, aimed at improving their split-second decision-making.

APEX Officer is a new tool used at the Central Illinois Police Training Center at Illinois Central College. The training works much like a virtual reality video game, but the scenarios are fully customizable.

It’s designed to put agents in real-world, interactive situations, forcing them to make the same split-second decisions they might have to make on the job.

“You can do any scenario you want. You want a guy with a knife, a guy with a gun, you can create a domestic situation,” training center director Brian Fengel said.

A simulated scenario could take place in a busy grocery store, apartment complex, or even a correctional facility. A live trainer can place obstacles, control suspicious behavior and even have a conversation with the trainee.

“[It’s] pretty realistic,” LaSalle County Sheriff’s Deputy John Samaniego said. “Elevated heart rate, elevated breathing, and the thought process kicks in automatically. You have to be two or three steps ahead of what’s going to happen to try to be prepared for what might happen.

Nearly 100 member agencies across the region will have access to the new technology. Fengel says advanced technology will help officers better defuse situations and save lives.

“You can never get enough training,” Fengel said. “We are always training to improve law enforcement.”

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) – “I always worry about them at school. It is a daily prayer, protect them and keep them safe,” said Toni Burdine.

Like any parent, Burdine said her worst nightmare is something bad happening to their children, especially at school.

Following recent school shootings, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and local police say they are adding new tactics to their active shooter training.

“When we respond to an active threat situation, our primary goal is to locate the threat and stop it,” said Missouri State Highway Patrol training officer Ricky Vannada.

MSHP and local police departments practice inside Dexter High School to protect students in the classroom in the event of an active shooter, using real-life scenarios.

“After Columbine, we realized we had to change tactics and react immediately,” Vanada said.

“We teach the same things that the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center taught our instructors,” Vannada continued.

He shared that the training props are fake, but the scene is meant to look and feel real.

During drills, officers practice with rifles similar to those used by officers, a trail of shell casings is laid on the ground, and there are actors instead of teachers and students.

Vannada says preparation is key because students, parents, teachers or officers have no control over when an active shooter event will occur.

“The goal is to train our officers to stop the threat as quickly as possible because the faster we can stop it, the more lives we can save,” Vannada said.

MSHP now trains outside agencies, including Stoddard and Dunklin County.

Pads were breaking out at the UCHealth Training Center as the Denver Broncos conducted their first day in full pads.

Unfortunately, an injury to key receiver Tim Patrick has everyone in Broncos Country holding their breath.

Denver Broncos lose two players to injury in practice

During the Broncos’ team period on Tuesday, Tim Patrick made a fantastic catch over cornerback Essang Bassey.

After going down with the hold, Patrick fell to the ground, immediately grabbing his knee.

The entire Broncos roster rallied around Patrick, offering their support as medical staff carried him off the field.

Patrick will undergo an MRI which will reveal the extent of the injury.

Earlier in the day, Broncos running back Damarea Crockett also left practice with an apparent knee injury and is also undergoing an MRI.

As NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported, the initial fear is that both injuries are significant.

Who steps in if Tim Patrick runs out of time?

The Broncos’ depth in training camp includes a variety of wide receivers vying for a spot on the 53-man roster.

After Patrick left practice, the offense continued to involve their receivers with multiple reps including Trey Quinn, Kendall Hinton, Brandon Johnson, Travis Fulgham and standout rookie Montrell Washington.

If Patrick were to miss at any time, Denver could count on a host of players to step in.

“Whenever these things happen, it’s about supporting the man because we’re about the whole team,” Hackett said after practice on Tuesday. “But at the same time, now turn it around and say ‘hey, now everyone has to pick it up and someone has to show up.’

For the Broncos, they will have to rely on the depth of their training camp while awaiting Patrick’s diagnosis.

Montrell Washington shines day 6

Broncos rookie receiver Montrell Washington continues to step up when called by the offense.

In Tuesday’s practice, Washington helped the Broncos offense earn a two-minute window to move the ball after netting a touchdown pass from Brett Rypien as time expired.

Washington celebrated in the end zone with a standing backflip. Shortly after the two-minute period, Washington made another deep hold on the left sideline.

With Patrick and KJ Hamler’s injury coming back into the mix ahead of the regular season, Washington could emerge as a big contributor on offense.

Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett alluded to the importance of versatility last week regarding the role of receivers in this offense.

“Again, it’s because we want them to be multiple,” Hackett said during the first week of training camp. “We don’t want just one guy doing one thing, we don’t want a one-move guy, we don’t want an outside guy. We want to be able to try to put them in as many different places as possible and kind of build all of their course trees. Whether it’s in the slot, whether it’s in the super tight, whether it’s on the outside, whether it’s offside, whether it’s deep in the court. I think with all the guys we’ve had, they’ve done a great job.

The rookie cornerback stands out

The Broncos’ secondary depth includes a variety of players who could play a big role in the defensive rotation or as potential starters.

Rookie cornerback Damarri Mathis made several impressive plays during Tuesday’s team period.

The Broncos offense tested Mathis twice on the field with Trey Quinn and Seth Williams, but Mathis did a terrific job fitting in at the hip and fending off one pass and shielding the receiver from another.

Heading into the preseason, Mathis could see a significant amount of snapping as the Denver Broncos try to solidify their cornerback depth heading into the regular season.

Is there a betting competition going on?

During the Broncos’ special teams period, both punters Corliss Waitman and veteran Sam Martin each took turns throwing the ball down the field.

Waitman’s first punt of the day exploded to the right side of the field, allowing time for the covering unit to come down near the returner.

Martin’s first punt attempt of the day was blocked by Kendall Hinton who came off the edge at the last minute.

A major factor in the punting team having better coverage success this season revolves around suspension time.

Waitman had the best hang time of the day with a punt hanging in the air for 5.24 seconds, once again allowing the cover team to converge.

Martin’s second punt attempt of the day reversed the field position positively, pinning the offense inside the five-yard line.

As the Broncos prepare for their preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Aug. 13, there could be some competition for the starting punter position under new special teams coordinator Dwayne Stukes.

The Denver Broncos will continue training tomorrow at the UCHealth Training Center for Day 7 of Broncos camp.

The Denver Broncos are back, baby.

The UCHealth training facility has been buzzing with football activity as the Broncos kicked off training camp last Wednesday. This year’s team is very different from its counterpart in recent seasons.

The energetic boost these crucial newcomers gave the Broncos was palpable. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett provided a spark as he embarked on the process of exorcising the demons of Vic Fangio’s failing regime, while Broncos players fell behind quarterback Russell Wilson, tightening the ranks around the nine-time Pro Bowler.

Byrl R. Shoemaker, director of the Ohio State Division of Vocational Education, proposed the concept of a vocational boarding school in January 1964.

Under the Manpower, Development and Training Act of 1962, the Mahoning Valley Vocational School (MVVS) was established as the first residential vocational training program for the disabled or “disadvantaged” Ohio boys. The school opened on July 29, 1964 and was located at Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Vienna.

The program was aimed at boys aged 16 to 21 with cultural, educational, economic and/or social problems. Many young men were rejected by the armed forces because they were emotionally immature and/or educationally unsuitable, or did not meet Job Corps requirements. Many were also high school dropouts or high school graduates who lacked marketable skills. Any boy enrolled in the MVVS was accepted into the program.

The school’s mission was to help young men acquire the appropriate skills, work habits, and attitudes to be productive in society. The program also helped trainees develop their individual talents, good character, sound mind and body, and a sense of social responsibility.

The educational phase of the program was funded by the Manpower, Development and Training Act 1962. The residential phase of the program was funded by a $250,000 trust fund established by the Leon A. Beeghly Foundation.

The following vocational training courses were offered: electrical appliance repairer, bodybuilder, car mechanic, car service station mechanic, baker, bookkeeper, general office clerk, cook, gardener-keeper, draftsman, tabulator operator and console operator, building maintenance, machine operator, stock inventory clerk, welder, small engine repair and peripheral equipment operator. The duration of the program varied from 6 to 12 months depending on the field of study. Students generally attended eight hours of lessons a day.

MVVS facilities included four furnished dormitories, an education building, an orientation center, vocational training workshops, a recreation center and a medical dispensary. A dining room was also located on the premises where meals were served in a cafeteria style.

Advice and supervision in the dormitories were provided by men with training and/or experience in sociology or youth work. A psychologist was available as well as religious services with chaplains, including a Catholic priest and a Protestant minister.

The placement of graduates from the training center would be around 80%. There was also a tracking program to keep track of graduating students and their success so that improvements in certain classes could be made.

Don E. Watson, director of MVVS, testified to the school’s success in 1966 before the House of Representatives General Subcommittee on Education during consideration of the 1966 Professional Amendments.

In 1967, Watson gave another testimonial in hopes of obtaining funds for the expansion of the program. At that time, the maximum capacity of MVVS was 485 students at a time with an annual enrollment of approximately 900 students from across the state. The cost of the school per student was expected to be $3,500 in 1967, whereas in previous years the cost was around $2,500 per student.

By 1969, over 2,000 students had graduated from MVVS since it opened. Even though the program was considered a success and operated more economically than the Job Corps program at the time, the Department of Labor withheld future funding, causing its closure in August 1970.

The entire Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster will meet at the AdventHealth Training Center next Tuesday, July 26, for the start of the team’s 2022 training camp. However, around half of that 90-man roster will already have a three-day lead by then.

The buccaneers who fall into four groups will show up on Saturday for what is colloquially known as the “QB School”, but actually includes 42 players who could use that head start for a variety of reasons. These four groups are quarterbacks, rookies, first-year players, and those recovering from injuries sustained last season or during the offseason.

Those three extra days won’t involve a large amount of fieldwork — about 90 minutes in total spread over two practices on Sunday and Monday — but each of those two days will involve class meetings and movies in the morning and afternoon. ‘afternoon. The 42 players in attendance will also have the chance to work with coaches, if needed, and take part in lifting sessions.

Saturday’s activities will be primarily for orientation purposes for the Bucs’ 24 rookies. They’ll have the chance to take physical and conditioning tests, hit the weight room, and then reunite for an evening rookie meeting.

It is common for teams to bring in their recruits a few days or even a week earlier than the rest of the team. Rookies from the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints, for example, showed up for camp on Wednesday the 19th, though veterans aren’t due until the 26th. more easily and to integrate more easily with the veterans when the actual camp begins.

Likewise, quarterbacks have more to do mentally than any other position on the team and must be ready to run the show once camp practices begin. And those hoping to return to action after injuries can obviously use as much time as possible with coaches and strength and conditioning staff members. “QB School” is all about that head start, and there are plenty of players on the Bucs’ 90-man roster who can benefit from it.
