Scott,

It is quite doubtful that the planned outlet mall will include a movie theater. Yes, it would be smart given the immense success of the current multiplex, but not likely to occur…

I think because of the traffic patternand the size of the land that surround the multiplex, I doubt a outlet center will suffice. This area need a strip mall with a Major supermarket .

Our local community is being badly hurt by the loss of the Whitestone. There really are no comparable theaters in our areas. We should have a voice in what goes on so our needs are properly taken into consideration.

To the above: I wholeheartedly agree with you. The area is now totally ripe for another multiplex. Take your story to the local media, I am curious if any other theater chains have expressed interest in opening up in the same area. A monumental opportunity will exist when the Whitestone closes late summer/early fall as planned.

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…
