The Lafayette wants and NEEDS more folks to fill the seats for regular films!

THE Sound system has been upgraded.Best it has been in the decades. Clear crisp and not overly loud. AC cool and comfortable, wo freezing one out.

New Silver Screen, images pop off the screen.

Popcorn Fresh popped at each show. Organ concert before Fri and Sat evening show. Stunning Neon Marque.

Sadly the Horror Thorn will NOT be making a return. Nelson Page was the one who did that every year. 2012 was the last year it was done. Page retired and left The Lafayette in July 2013.

It did not make a lot of $$$ but was a Beloved series.

movieguy commented about Larchmont Playhouse on Apr 27, 2014 at 11:15 pm

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”

movieguy commented about Condos proposed for Mamaroneck movie theater on Apr 23, 2014 at 11:11 am

This IS very sad news. This was a playhouse from the 1920’s. It was once a single screen. Then split into 4 screens. It however had a lot of elements left over from when it was a playhouse. This was evident mostly in the 2 upstairs theatres. Bricks walls and stone figurines still adorned the walls. The hallway between the 2 theatres and the bathrooms was a walkway with bricks on the ceiling and walls as you walked thru.

Plus each theater had 250 seats.. The two upstairs theatres were roomy and airy. One did not feel like you were in a little box

They ran 35MM right up to the last day on April 20th. Bow Tie had switched all other locations in Westchester from 35MM several months ago.

So I felt from the beginning of the year. They planned NOT to spend the $$$ to convert to digital. In addition to fixing up all 4 theatres with new sets screens sound systems. Plus other general repair on the older building.

They had floated the idea of making it a view and dine upscale theatre. It would have done well I think.As it was far enough away from Alamo Drafthouse.

A real shame and sad for the residents and downtown.
