Jefferson Valley Mall Theater Closes Again
YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, NY — The Movies at Jefferson Valley, an 8-plex operated by Trademark Cinemas and located in the Jefferson Valley Mall has closed once again, for the second time in four years. The Journal News quoted the CEO of Trademark Cinemas as saying the mall’s owner, Simon Properties, would not renew the company’s lease, despite repeated attempts to gain a long-term contract. Trademark had operated the theater (opened originally under the United Artists banner as a 6-plex about 25 years ago) since Regal closed it in 2006, calling it “underperforming.”
While the Journal News reports that this leaves the town of Yorktown “without a cinema within its 40 square miles,” it also notes that Regal pulled out after opening another multiplex in the Cortlandt Town Center, which, though not in the same town, is only four miles away.
According to the article, mall management issued a statement affirming their commitment to “a mix of retail, food and entertainment options” but not commenting on reasons for the theater’s closing.
