The Bedford Playhouse was opened in 1947 by the defunct Metropolitan Playhouses Chain, which had several theatres throughout the NY-NJ-CT area (most of which are still open!). The lobby is all original, except for the addition of a concession stand.
The auditorium was split into two in the 1980’s, and each side still has a portion of the balcony open to sit in. The balcony is at ground level, and guests must walk downstairs to gain access to the orchestra section. There are still some original decorative touches in the auditorium, and the small stage survives behind the screens.
It was taken over by Bow-Tie Cinemas in June 2013. It was closed on January 4, 2015. It was reopened in Summer of 2018.
