Dismissed from the day it opened by locals, this 1991 multi-level multiplex is still surviving while many other Upper East Side theaters continue 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 will close, as the building’s owner will demolish and replace with a new construction.
