The Kin-Mall Cinemas 8 opened April 24, 1992. Located just off Route 23 in Kinnelon, this theatre is one of many former Clearview Cinemas that in June 2013 have been taken over by Bow-Tie Cinemas. Located in Morris County it attracts moviegoers from the northern part of Morris County (i.e., the Pequannock Area). Its location near a busy shopping center makes it convenient for shoppers to go to the movies. On November 11th 2016, Bow Tie transferred ownership of this theater to an independent.

Clearview has renamed the 3 screener the Kinnelon Arts Centre while the 8 screener is still called Kinnelon.

The 3 screen Kinnelon Arts center will close prior to the Bow Tie take over

Bow Tie has solved the major problem I had with many of the Clearview locations – Kinnelon has gone all digital and the picture is sharp, bright and most importantly – in focus! I look forward to seeing what they do circuit-wide as they continue to work on the Clearview sites.

Anyone know who owns this now that Bow-Tie pulled out?

It was taken over by the same owner as Teaneck Cinemas – Bow Tie did a great job of running this place but the physical layout with low ceilings makes it difficult to do anything significant to increase screen size. Hopefully the new owner will continue to make improvements – the theater could certainly use some new seats.

Teaneck Cinemas was in terrible shape when they took over and it evolved into a very nice, clean and modern movie theater with stadium seating and high back rocker seats – – so I think Kinnelon is in good hands! (The showtime are a still a little hard to find, but they’ve launched a website and are available on Fandango)

This theatres current web site is probably the worst theatre web site I have ever seen. It is fairly close to being worthless.

My trip to see Lion at the Kinnelon Cinemas:

Thursday is currently “senior day”, and according to the web site the price is $5 for seniors. We arrive, boxoffice closed, they are selling tickets from the concession stand. No admission prices anywhere. I ask for 2 senior tickets (we are seniors), and I am told $16. When I ask why the web site says $5 each, I am told that $5 is indeed correct and he re-issues me new tickets.

The theatre lobby clearly has not been cleaned from dropped popcorn from prior showings that day.

The popcorn was stale, almost inedible.

The movie was in auditorium 4. The preshow was out of focus, but the feature was ok. Widescreen “scope” film, screen masked for non wide screen 1.85. Looked like I was watching letterboxed TV. Nobody came to close the auditorium door, which was letting light in.

Other than that, my trip was uneventful. I will never buy a concession item from them again, but the theatre is probably worth the $5 for a first run evening showing.
