Boraie Development along with Provident Bank Foundation is bringing back free movies for kids this summer at the State Theatre in New Brunswick. The movies included will be such classics as Frozen, Babe, Monsters University, ET the Extra-Terrestrial and Despicable Me 2. For the uninitiated, the State Theatre of New Brunswick is a legend of sorts and it is a popular venue for many different types of entertainment. This makes it an ideal place for friends and family to gather and enjoy an evening with one of their favorite movies for free. Hiam Boraie who is the vice president of Boraie Development feels very happy that his company could be a part of something like this. This is not surprising because he and his company have a history of giving back to the community. Visit Central Jersey Working Moms for more.
According to Anna Gewirtz, in her interview with the New Jersey Stage, the Vice President of Development and Strategic Partnerships, the theatre is thrilled to be bringing back this lineup of films for people to watch. She added that the State Theatre is committed to bringing good family friendly movies for people to watch. This is, after all, in tune with the tradition of the historic theatre. She also thanked both sponsors in making this program a reality for the community.
In a report by NY Times, Boraie Development was started by Omar Boraie in 1972. Omar was an immigrant from Egypt, and when he first came to the US, he did so as a student of chemistry, but he wanted to get into real estate. In fact, it was during one of his travels in Europe, according to the interview he gave to the NJ Biz journal, that he saw what could be done to run down neighborhoods. He saw first-hand these neighborhoods being turned into highly attractive, real estate, that made people want to move there. Check out Bloomberg to know more.
That is why when Omar moved to New Brunswick, New Jersey, he saw an opportunity when others only saw disrepair and despair. After founding Boraie Development, he rolled up his sleeves and got to work. He bought old rundown buildings, one after the other, and then started talking to the city zoning office. As would be expected they thought he was crazy for pouring so much money into developing an area that looked like a war zone. The building that went up was named Albany Street Plaza Tower One, and the neighborhood never looked back. Going from project to project, Boraie Development has been instrumental in changing the skyline of New Brunswick.
