Mamaroneck Playhouse

Viewing: Photo | Street View

There are many original features of this former vaudeville house still intact—the auditorium walls, lobby, and facade are all still original.

The theatre was split into four by UA in the late-1970’s—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.

The bottom right photo on this page from a 1913 trade journal shows a Mamaroneck Auditorium, which may have been used as a cinema before this theatre was built: archive

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.

There was an column about this in today’s Journal News. The link to the column is:

This does not speak highly of Bow Tie Cinemas.
