We drove by today and the outdoor marquee had no films listed. Is this theater closing shortly or has it closed already?

I called the theater after and the message was that this was no longer a working number.

Hail and farewell, dear Whitestone Multiplex. I have many fond memories of this, one of the last of the non-stadium venues.

Is this theater open again? Fandango has all new listings including all 3 wide openers for this week. Number given for theater is a general National Amusements number.

Heard from an insider that there is a strong possibility of another theater opening here as part of the proposed Paragon Outlet Mall. I am GUESSING it might be National Amusements once again. They could easily squeeze it in as a top floor location or basement multiplex as done with their 161 St location. But this site begs for another theater so badly…

I heard about the real estate property companies are gonna build a newler 25 screen stadium seating theater i thinking it might be a AMC . They could build a movie theater on top as they done with their Bay Plaza mall top floor Co op City Location so the theater will have the elevator and an escalator to go up in the new theater.The Bronx Could have another theaters and I think I was banned for going to the whitestone cinema because I burned down the Hannah Montana 2009 film print in this theater.

It makes sense that another multiplex would open in the Whitestone property. BUT…if AMC does open there, will they still keep their Bay Plaza multiplex???

Another area in the northwest Bronx that absolutely begs for a cinema is in one of those two new retail projects located next to the Deegan Expressway where Stella a Doro used to be.

Yes AMC are keeping their Bay Plaza open but the only thing is the whitestone cinema need to be convert into a bigger AMC megaplex that gonna looks the same thing like Bay Plaza 13 version that way the mayor want another AMC theatres location for the people of the castile hill so that the people doesn’t have to travel to Manhattan on a crowned subway to 42nd Street. Fordham plaza need a movie theater megaplex there in Fordham plaza and Webster Avenue,Regal cinemas might open their theater locating at Hunts point Avenue and Bruckner Avenue and Finally Cinemark might open their theater locating at the Gateway mall a 155th street. By the time comes the Bronx will have more megaplex movie theater

To the above, Regal is considering selling it’s theaters, so for now it’s not likely they are building any new ones. And did you actually hear that they want to build at Hunt’s Point?? Same with Cinemark??

Are you speculating, or did you actually hear this from elsewhere?? National Amusements had planned to build a theater in the original Kingsbridge Armory retail project that was voted down a few years back.

Many Thanks, hope you are right!!!
