The Washington Township Cinemas opened in the 1960’s as an anchor of the Washington Town Center shopping plaza. Divided into three in the 1980’s, Clearview Cinemas recently remodeled the theatre in the 2000’s and added new seats. In June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over, when they took most Clearview locations. It was closed in September 2016 and plans are for a new operator to take over.

Fred, yes I’ve been noticing the smaller art house films have been showing at Tenafly instead of here. Too bad, since Tenafly used to be nice before it was chopped up. I really hate the way it is now, and just won’t go there unless they show something really worth while. I would rather patronize Ridgefield Park or Teaneck first.

By that you mean the Rialto, not the AMC Loews, in RP and the Cedar Lane cinemas in Teaneck. This theater was acquired by Clearview the same day as the Allwood as well as other theaters on 6/26/1996. Too bad Clearview didn’t do a good job of renovating the Allwood the same way they did with this theater.

Sudden developments here. The sign out front says its under new management and temporarily closed, while the theatre Is no longer listed on the Bow Tie website. No news I can see about it anywhere.

tragically there’s no photos of the venue in the placeholder. Pity there’s no great “buff” of movies who is obsessed with North Jersey cinema to take care of that….

Maybe a building permit has been filed by the new operators for renovation work. Or possibly the shopping center owners or management company, or local media may have some info. Wonder why Bow Tie did not renew their lease???

I’ve heard that the new operator is David Vivian, operator of the Darian Playhouse in Ct. , and the West Hampton Arts Twin

That name sounds familiar, he used to run a lot of older movie theaters in NJ that were closed down…I hope they put in recliners and keep prices where they are.

A theater can not install recliners and keep the prices the same. It cuts the seating by at least 50% or more and to keep the profits up the ticket prices have to be increased. I for one hope the recliner is a passing phase in movie theaters.
