News About This Theater

Mamaroneck Playhouse - now closed

The Playhouse Theatre was opened on December 5, 1925 when it was operated by Playhouse Operating Co. There are many original features of this former vaudeville house still intact–the auditorium walls, lobby, and fa├žade are all still original.

The theatre was split into four by UA in June 13, 1980–two down and two in the balcony. The building also features 12 dressing rooms and the stage, which is still there. Operated in recent years by Clearview Cinemas, in June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over most Clearview locations, including this one. It was closed April 17, 2014.

None of the theaters from the above Moving Picture World article are listed here. The Danville one looks particularly interesting.

Another beautiful theatre about to be demolished. I remember the interior had a lot of brick work inside, from my days when I use to clean their screens. Such a shame.
