The Central Plaza is a shopping center theatre that was opened by General Cinemas on December 28, 1966 as the Yonkers Cinema with Tony Curtis in “Arrivederci Baby!”. Originally seating 1,700 in the orchestra and balcony, the theatre was twinned, then in 1985 converted into a quad (2 up-250 each, 2 down-600 each). It still features its original GC “CINEMA” sign on the roof, and toward the front of the lobby you can feel that the floor is hollow–it’s covering the original lobby fountain.
After GCC, Clearview Cinemas took over, and in June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over as it took most Clearview locations. The Central Plaza Cinema was closed on September 19, 2013 due to the lease expiring. By 2023 it had become an extension to the adjacent Party City.
