Al Bulay was 16 years old working in a movie theater when “Lillies of the Field” first showed.
On Thursday, he plans on showing the 1964 film to a group of no more than 50 invitees, including press and politicians at Lyceum Cinemas at 7 p.m. Almost 30 years ago, Bulay said he built the Red Hook theater in a cornfield off Route 9.
“We’re going to demonstrate a fogger that sprays a quick drying disinfectant,” Bulay said. “We are going to use it in the auditorium on the seats and in the bathroom. Hopefully to give attention to let people know that when we do reopen, it’s going to be safe.”
