Union Center Theaters

Opened in 1926 as the Union Theatre. By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. It was listed in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook as having 1,303 seats. It was twinned on March 17, 1978. In 1988 the owners managed to carve out seven theaters in the building. Believed to have been showing movies continuously since opening, the Union Theatres was closed in 2014.

In March 2015 it was taken over by Empire Cineplex Cinemas.

The theatre is now closed with a “for sale” sign on the marquee. It has been closed for several months now.

Someone has been doing work on this theater in recent months. New tiling has been put down both inside and outside the lobby, and current movie posters have been installed inside the glass cases mounted on the main wall just past the entrance. The marquee also no longer says “For Sale”.

This is now a second run discount theater still operated by Empire Cineplex. The only one in the NY Tri State Area since the South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie, NY also operated by Empire Cineplex has closed in Feb. Tickets are now $3.50. You can’t get this price anywhere in this area.
