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.

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!!!

amcbayplaza13, Thank you for your posting. FYI: The plan for a theater at the planned Kingsbridge Armory Mall died when that project was voted down by the City Council. An ice rink is opening there instead…I thought you said AMC was building a 25 plex at the Whitestone?? Now it’s only going to be 17 screens with IMAX???

fred1,

If you have any friends at Bow Tie, tell them that other areas of the Bronx are ripe for a theater such as the area next to the southbound Deegan above Fordham Road where two new retail projects are emerging. Also, if Regal pulled out of the downtown Yonkers retail project, they should take a look. The planned site is on Nepperhan Ave at New School Street. The area begs for a multiplex and had 3 single screens up until the 1970’s…

The property is being sold again according to today’s edition of www.bxtimes.com which indicated it could end up as an outlet mall as originally planned but from a new owner.

CORRECTION: The story appeared in the Friday, April 3 edition of www.bxtimes.com let’s hope AMC or whomever gets to open up on this site that is begging for a multiplex!!!

I think walmart or costco or bjs at least 1 of them should be there.
