Jefferson Valley Mall Theater to close

YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, NY — The Regal Jefferson Valley Mall Theatre is scheduled to close this weekend.

Here’s another titan of an earlier generation shutting its doors. This was the place to go to see movies in Northern Westchester in the 1980’s(at least for those far enough north that Hawthorne was out of the way) before it became obsolete with the opening of the nearby theater in Mohegan Lake.

“It was identified as an underperforming theater, and its lease had expired,” said Richard Grover, marketing manager with Regal Entertainment Group, which owns the theater.

All employees will be offered jobs at another Regal-owned theater at the Cortlandt Town Center, Grover said. He declined to comment on whether the success of that more modern, 11-screen theater, which opened in 1998, with its stadium seating contributed to the demise of its Jefferson Valley rival.
