Alamo Drafthouse. Yonkers,NY

Movieland opened on December 16, 1977 with 4-screens. Located in the Central Plaza Mall, this theatre is the next door neighbor to the Clearview Central Plaza Cinemas. It was operated by B.S. Moss Enterprises who added two more screens in June 1986. Suprisingly this UA-Regal house is still well maintained both in and out.

It was closed for renovations in July 2012, and was taken over by the Alamo Drafthouse chain and reopened August 3, 2013.

Please update, the theatre open around December 16, 1977 with Close Encounters. The theatre had 4 screens, expanded to six screens in the 1980s or 90s. If I can find something thru looking at old newspapers. There was NO GRAND OPENING AD in the New York Daily News or The Journal News. Guess BS MOSS didn’t advertize.

If this was the old Movieland I saw Going in Style here in 1979…Perfect serviceable multiplex but loved the Movieland brand

Response to BearMount Not sure what you’re talking about. Have you ever been there before? The front of the theatre is all glass, I assume it was covered up for safety reasons. There is zero graffiti. The outside is not forlorn, it just seems that way because…the theatre is temporarily closed. All theatres look this way right now! It is not a depressed area. The restaurants and other stores are all open. I am quite certain that my Drafthouse will reopen as soon as it’s possible.

The theatre open in 1977 as 4 screens, BS Moss (aka Bow Tie) added two screens in June 1986. Please look at the display ads in the photos. Alamo kept the 6 screens when they took over in 2013.

Two of the screen were considerably reduced in size to accommodate the kitchen
