Previous Names: Loew's Yonkers Theatre
This was the largest of the four first-run theatres that Loew’s operated in Westchester County in the “old days”. It’s also one of the least documented, but it was due to be opened as the Andrus Theatre on January 15, 1928 and was built by John E. Andros (the world’s fourth richest man). Loew’s Inc. acquired it and it opened as Loew’s Yonkers Theatre on February 2, 1928 with vaudeville and William Haines in the movie “West Point”.
In the early-1950’s, Loew’s divested it to comply with the Federal anti-trust decree against the company, at which time it was taken over by the Brandt Circuit and re-named Brandt’s Yonkers Theatre.
It was closed on March 16, 1972 with a re-release of Mickey Rooney in “National Velvet”. It was demolished in 1975.
