The Lev Smadar movie theater in Jerusalem, which was slated to close at the end of 2016, will remain open until at least May 2017, the Lev Cinemas chain said in a statement released on Monday.

The company, which owns theaters all over Israel, said, “We are happy, but still concerned, to give an update that we have come to an understanding with the municipality and the owner of the property and that the theater will continue to operate in its current structure until May 1. We hope that in these four months, we will manage to find a long-term solution and keep it operating. Soon we will sit down to discuss the implications of keeping it running and to plan for the coming months.”
