Located a few blocks east of Yankee Stadium, the Concourse Plaza Multiplex Cinemas was opened in 1991. As of late-September, 2013, this is one of only two operating movie theatres in the Bronx.

Currently the plaza is under construction – I had caught a flick here the other day. Its a perfectly utilitarian National Amusements design complete with corrugated steel walls. It appears seating ranged from 190 to 480 – I was lucky enough to be in #5 -the largest theater in the house. The layout of the mall is uninviting and looks as if it was designed to accommodate lots of crowds (and potentially problems). The walk up to the theater looks like a prison, the theater is 2 floors underground). The theater itself has a central concession stand (it looks newish) and the 10 theaters flank the stand along with two sets of restrooms. Overall the experience was – well – an interesting one, I can’t say I’ll be back but the theater was clean (even if the auditorium I was in smelled a little like a hospital), but they left the Real D polarizers on a 2D presentation – ugh – I wish they would make projectors that would refuse to start up if a 3D polarizer was left on for a 2D movie.

About half the auditoriums have new seats — not as comfortable as the old leather seats that rocked back (which the remaining auditoriums still have). They say the plaza is being renovated, but it looks like a disaster area — food court is all boarded up, only two or three active shops. You’ve got to give the theater credit for trying, though.

This theater, too, shall pass, leaving only one in the Bronx.
