News About This Theater
Located directly opposite Bronxville railway train station. Another of the original Metropolitan Playhouses chain of NY-NJ-CT, the Bronxville Playhouse has some of its original characteristics remaining. It has been operating since its opening on September 1, 1926, when it was listed with a seating capacity of 1,116. It was remodeled in 1960 to the plans of architect John J. McNamara after a fire gutted the auditorium. On August 15, 1980, United Artists opened the triplexed theatre. Clearview took over in the 1990’s, and installed new carpet, seats and repainted the lobby in 2002.
In June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over as it took most Clearview locations. They operated it until the Coronavirus pandemic forced its closure. It was taken over in December 2021 by the Picture House Cinema, who operate the Pelham Picture House. It reopened on February, 11, 2022 as the Picture House Bronxville Theatre.
