In 1992 the manager was murdered by an employee and they found the body in the theater. I remember seeing this on the nightly news.

Let’s hope that the new operator Bow Tie Cinemas does not close this theatre and propose to knock it down and build condos like they did in the adjacent community where they closed the Mamaroneck Playhouse last week. This theatre is a gem even though it has been turned into a triplex yrars ago.

I do not think they will close this theatre. They just converted to digital about 4 months ago. The Mamaroneck Playhouse. Was 35MM right up to the last day of operation. Bow Tie said it would have been too costly to upgrade and renovate the theatre. Not a very good company when they say. “Movie going like it, used to be, but only better”

Great news today about a developer who is purchasing the theater and plans to reopen it:

They should renovate it with recliners and reserved seating.

The latest news from the local paper of January 28 2020 that it should be renovated and reopened by September.

Please update, theatre opened August 3, 1933, Clearveiw Cinemas took control of the theatre in September 1997 from United Artists Theatre Circuit and became a triplex on November 20, 1998.

Article in June 2021 says the theatre will open no time soon.

Still nothing going on with this Theatre. Doesn’t look like the outfit that bought it is going to do anything at this point. They were supposed to do a mix of art house movies and regular films and other special screenings. They probably see the state of the movie business today and decided not to invest a hefty sum to redo the theater. Very sad anyway it would’ve been good to have the theater open great for the businesses.
