Sadly the Fair Oaks Drive in DID NOT OPEN and is NOT OPEN
They tried to work out a deal with the land owner. But that fell thru. The phone number 845-361-5114 is now disconnected. The webiste is gone
It is now a market with Good eats
This is long since CLOSED! A new restaurant is in its place
No more films at the IMAX 70MM or other. ALL DIGITAL

June 22nd Sunday will be another .25 cent admission to celebrate the 90th year in operation.. The 1971 Version of Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory will be shown.
No advanced sales. Get to the theatre EARLY to avoid disappointment! 300 people were turned away because of a FULL house on March 2nd.
No One screen. The marque #2 slot. is showing the time. Now a 2nd movie
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”
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.
I talked to the owner and operator. he says no 16MM no 35MM. So it is digital. Do not know if he gets DCP from the studio’s. Or does a Blu Ray projection.
Yes “The African Queen” WILL show in GLORIOUS 35MM!
Lets see. It would be GREAT to see the Fair Oaks Drive in open again. It has been running since 1990. When Ron Merge the former owner and operator departed, after 23 successful seasons in 2013.. The Overlook Drive in in Poughkeepskie and The Hyde Park Drive in do very well. Having 4 different Drive In’s within 45 to 70 minutes from where I live is quite a treat.
Several people are looking to operate and RE-OPEN this GREAT Drive In Movie Theatre! The former owner had it for 23 years. Yes the cost if digital was one of the reasons he did not continue. It IS a very busy Drive In. As I have been going there since 1997.
The main screen, IS the biggest in New York State
