News About This Theater
- Nov 17, 2006 — The Mainstream/Indy Theater
The Cinema 100 opened as a 700-seat single screen on August 20, 1971 with “Ryan’s Daughter”. Located in the Greenburgh section of White Plains, in a shopping center. The theatre was twinned, then converted into a quad in 1999 by Clearview Cinemas, when it was converted to an art house.
In June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over as it took most Clearview locations. It was closed on March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. It was announced in August 2020 that the closure would be permanent and parts of the building would be taken over by the next door CVS store.

Was ortiginally run by Ackerman-Tolchin chain as a first run $1.50 at all times house. Nice little theater back then. This is actuallyy located in the Town of Greenburgh which carries a White Plains postal address. I think it’s a twin, not a quad. I don’t believe it opened until the very early 1970’s.
This was always my favorite theater growing up. Saw The Return of The Pink Panther here, as well as Fame, Family Plot, The Cheap Detective, Nighthawks, and many, many more. I even dragged a bunch of my friends there to see Winter Kills during one of their birthday parties without knowing it was completely inappropriate for a bunch of kids. I just wanted to go to Cinema 100.

Too bad. It was one of the few theaters in the area that showed independent and foreign films.

As of today, a large for rent sign is posted and CVS has not taken over. None of it appears gutted. Maybe if not rented bu the time patrons return in great numbers elsewhere, another chain will move in or maybe even Bow Tie will return.
When the vacant Lindenhurst Theatre on Long Island became vacant a CVS coming sign was erected. A very long period of time elapsed before the theatre was demolished and the CVS built. Might be the same situation here.
Went to this nice theater way back when they ran first run films for $1.00. And regardless of their expensive concession, how did they make any money and didn’t the studios object to them charging one dollar ? Recall reading that Disney had objected to General Cinema’s bargain matinee prices.
This was a decent theater to see independent movies in. They had done some renovations inside and made the seating better and also work on the sound put down new carpets. I have a feeling it will never open up again. Another one lost for the community
