News About This Theater
- Apr 21, 2014 — Condos proposed for Mamaroneck movie theater
The 1,100-seat Playhouse Theatre was opened on December 5, 1925 when it was operated by Playhouse Operating Co. There are many original features of this former vaudeville house still intact–the auditorium walls, lobby, and façade are all still original.
The theatre was split into four by UA in June 13, 1980–two down and two in the balcony. The building also features 12 dressing rooms and the stage, which is still there. Operated in recent years by Clearview Cinemas, in June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over most Clearview locations, including this one. It was closed April 17, 2014.
In early-2022 it was taken over by the owners of the Cobble Hill, Williamsburg & Kew Garden Cinemas and reopened as an 8-plex on June 16, 2022 with a total seating capacity of 495-seats.

Another beautiful theatre about to be demolished. I remember the interior had a lot of brick work inside, from my days when I use to clean their screens. Such a shame.
Great news online today! It looks like the theater will be renovated and reopen!
Reopened with 4 screens on June 13th, 1980. Grand opening ad posted.

The theater is a masterpiece. I’ve been in Theater 4 which has Dolby Atmosphere sound. It may be the best theater in the New York area. I’ve been in Theater 4 which has excellent sightlines. This theater deserves your business.
C train You gave Kew Gardens double plug and left out Mr. Elgart’s Cobble Hill theater
Theatre number four with the Dolby ATMOS Is quite impressive. They tried to retain some of the original look of the theater before it was converted over to eight screens. Very good size screen and excellent surroundsound. This is the theater that shows the most popular movies. Definitely want to pick over the other seven screens
