What’s Cinema 5?

Cinema 5 were was a chain of art houses originally called Rugoff Theatres. They were the company who built Cinema 1-2 among others.

The Park Hill was triplexed by its last operator. It closed in the early 90’s after their business was severly impacted by the National Amusements Cross County 10-plex nearby. The theatre building housed a church in the late 90’s, but was recently put up for sale again. The marquee is still on the building. It is the last of the downtown Yonkers theatres still standing in its original configuration.

Could anyone give a brief history of the Park Hill? I assume that by the looks of the exterior it was built in the early 30’s.

I recollect Park Hill as a very nice theater, around 1970 or so. We used to drive over from Woodlawn, to see flicks here. The only real problem was finding a parking place nearby. The neighborhood deteriorated, later.

Was the Parkhill in Yonkers ever used as a nightclub known as The Enchanted Room? Postcards of the Enchanted Room identify it as being located at 423 S. Broadway in Yonkers. Singer Jerry Vale got an early start there.

The Enchanted Room was located diagonally above the theater. The Facebook page “I Grew Up in Yonkers” has gone into detail about it..
