Fans of Troma films, the b-list film company known for classics such as Blood Sisters of Lesbian Sin and Fertilize The Blaspheming Bombshell, were devastated when they received the news that their online orders would be delayed 6 to 8 weeks because of the company’s move.
But the news was solidified on Friday, when we found the deed for the company’s New York location in city records. Lloyd Kauffman and Michael Herz, founders of Troma Studios sold their Ninth Avenue location for $4.75 million. Mr. Herz purchased the property in August of 1980 according to PropertyShark. The buyer this time around was an operating corporation.
Mr. Kauffman runs a Make Your Own Damn Movie Master Class for prospective film makers, and was recently elected chairman of the Independent Film and Television Alliance.
A message on the answering machine of Troma Entertainment says that they are in the process of renovating a new building in Long Island City; we are tracking down the exact address. Perhaps onlookers in Queens will be able to sneak a peak at Surf Nazis Must Die! or They Call Me Macho Woman.
