They probably were waitng for the lease to expire and had to take on this theater from Clearview along with several others that were underperforming such as the locations in Yonkers and Mamaroneck…

When cablevision owned it I cleaned the screens here in the early 2000’s. It was a nice theatre in a nice town. Reminded me of a GCC theatre. It had that look. Don’t know if GCC ever operated it at one time.

GCC never ran this theater.

I didnt think so. But some of the interior features resembled it.

This is a very nice place to go see a movie. It was a real old Playhouse from the 40s. I theater upstairs had a decent size screen and a small section of leftover balcony seats that you could sit in. The downstairs theater also was a nice size. Really hope they can keep it as a theater maybe do what Jacob burns does show art house movies. Bowtie also didn’t, renovate and put digital into the Mamaroneck playhouse. I theater back from 1927. Both play houses in Mamaroneck and Bedford should be used for movies or live events. Not left sitting empty or turned into retail or housing
