Yonkers Movie House

posted by ParkHill433 on August 26, 2005 at 4:33 am

In South Yonkers, New York, there’s a movie house just waiting for someone to come along and renovate it. Everyone seems to agree that this facility, if restored and resusitated as a movie house can help in the revitalization of the South Yonkers area.

The movie house, originally built as a twin theater in 1926, seats 460 downstairs and about the same number in the upper level. The property is privately-owned and it is located in a retail corridor in transition. Special economic development benefits from the city and State are available.

The local non-profit group seeking to develop this movie house can also serve as an important resource, as it represents all property owners and merchants in the corridor. There’s an information packet available for any developers or operators wanting to know more. Call 914-438-4721 or e-mail

Which movie house is this? The Park Hill?

Yes it is. Do you know any prospects?

What condition is it in right now? Is there any estimate of how much it would cost to renovate?

Condition is considered pretty good, according to an engineer and architect. About $3 million is estimated for restoration and upgrades of the system. Know anyone?
