CMX Closter Cinema

Another 1960’s shopping center theatre, the Closter Cinema was opened on July 31, 1963 with Charlton Heston in “55 Days at Peking”. It became one of the first Clearview Cinemas in the early-1980’s and was divided into four auditoriums. In June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over as it took most Clearview locations. It was closed in January 2016. It reopened in January 2018 as the CMX Closter Cinema.

The theatre closed without much fanfare. The entire plaza where it was located is being leveled and built up again. I don’t know if the theatre will be demolished or kept standing but the theatre is no longer listed on Bow Tie’s website,and no listing at all in the local newspaper. The inside walls have been stripped of their poster frames and it looks pretty barren from the street.

I went by the plaza recently and it’s half opened, with Whole Foods and Target now opened. The other half of the plaza is finishing up and I understand is fully rented. They did, however, build a store in front of the theatre, so now the theatre looks more like it’s located in the back of the place, not as up front as it was. The theatre from the outside looks the same as it did 9 months ago. It looks like they just locked the doors and walked away. Any idea who is taking it over and when?

New cinema opened a few weeks ago. It’s called CMX.
