Dismissed from the day it opened by locals, this 1991 multi-level multiplex survived many years while many other Upper East Side theaters continued to close. Built by Cineplex Odeon as the long delayed replacement for the highly sought after Baronet & Coronet property, the site never gained the clout it needed and the Baronet & Coronet lasted longer as a result.
A Garth Drabinsky faux marble plex with good sound, smallish screens, and a victim of that unique Manhattan crime of being one block too far.
A battle with the city over the escalator caused several aborted openings. The seventh screen apparently came and went.
In 2013, Clearview Cinemas are being sold to Bow Tie Theatres, but this movie theatre closed in June 2013. In 2015 a section of the building was in use as a storage facility. In November 2016 it was taken over by Mexico City based Cinemex and renovation has begun.
