Bronxville Cinema’s are not in the Bronx, as the description may lead you to believe. Bronxville is a sleepy hamlet that is located on Route 22, north of Mount Vernon, and adjacent to Eastchester, bordering on Yonkers, and a few other communities.
Mr. Farley, indicated that there were several other theaters on Fordham Road? Could someone enlighten me on the others that were on Fordham? I only recall the Valentine. There may have been one other near VIMS?
This theater to my recollection, was north of the Melba theater on Boston Post Road, almost directly across the street from: John’s Bargain Stores, and Ionatti Meats. Had it’s popularity dwindle in the 60’s, when it fell, like so many other movies houses to a Bingo Hall. Nice area in the late 50’s early 60’s.
