Loew's Yonkers Theatre, Yonkers, NY -- 1931

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This was the largest of the four first-run theatres that Loew’s operated in Westchester County in the “old days”. It’s also one of the least documented, but I believe that it was already an operating theatre when Loew’s acquired it in the 1920s.

In the early 1950s, Loew’s divested it to comply with the Federal anti-trust decree against the company, at which time it was taken over by the Brandt Circuit and re-named Brandt’s Yonkers.

Information about its fate after that would be appreciated.

Certainly the finest theatre Yonkers ever had and one of the best in the region. I attended several movies there during late 60s, early 70s. I preferred the Loews/Brandt’s over its still standing, but closed neighbor’s The Parkhill and RKO Proctor’s. I remembered being sadden when it closed. However, the neighborhood was already in a steady state of decline. I believe the Loews/Brandt’s sat derelict for a couple of years before it was demolished for a Macdonald’s. Sad how this one just slipped away and is so little documented.

The loew’s/Bandt’s was never subdivided. It appeared to be intact when it closed, with most, if not all of its original furnishings. Still in excellent condition.
