This was one of the best film showplaces in Westchester. it last for over 30 years and I am so sorry to see it go. The time in whic we are living as far as film exhibition is concerned is a travesty when theaters of this sort are allowed to fall by the wayside in favor of noisy dirty multiplexes that attract in large part the most undesirable elements. I avoid multiplexes

This theater showed many foreign films and independent fair as well. I remember seeing The Lacemaker in 1977, when I was 11 years old. I was with my father, who had to accompany me to this this one. Among my favorite films at this theater were Das Boot (1982), Kurosawa’s RAN (1985), Woody Allen’s CRIMES & MISDEAMENORS (1989), CINEMA PARADISIO (1989) and so much more… ANother footnote, the very last week of this theater’s existense, the manager ran THE LAST PICTURE SHOW and CINEMA PARADISIO at no charge. FREE.. The Day The Movies Died.. happened when they closed this theater..

I went to pick up some food from CPK and see a movie at the Fine Arts Theater today and to my disbelief, the theater wasn’t there anymore! There’s some furniture store there now. When did this happen?!?

Also what’s going on with that auto dealership next door? Haven’t seen a car come out of there in years. Jennifer may be struggling too.

My parents used to drive here to see Movies from Rockland County New York. Maybe the movies they wanted to see weren’t playing in Rockland County. The beautiful Lafayette Theatre in Rockland is much nicerThen this movie theater was. Nothing special about it but they must’ve had good movies you couldn’t see in the suburbs of Rockland County
