Where greasy spoon Olympic Restaurant stood for 35 years, will now stand downtown's largest movie theater complex. Crain's reports that Regal Cinemas inked a deal for a 30,000-square-foot space in the giant development coming to Delancey Street around Essex Street. The theater will sit atop the new home of Essex Street Market when both opens in 2017 or 2018. The Snow White mosaic that watched over Olympic is no doubt also a goner.
