Showcase Cinema de Lux City Center 15

A 15 screen multiplex, built in downtown White Plains, it opened on June 25, 2005 with 3,181-seats. Screen 13 was soon converted to an 311-seat IMAX. By 2020 the total seating capacity had been reduced to 1,499. In early-September 2023 it was announced that the theatre would close on October 29, 2023 due to failure to come to terms with a new lease agreement.

Oh, I knew immediately where the bad back came from! Never knew a projectionist that didn’t have some wear and tear from film handling. From running arcs in the middle of summer in a hellishly hot, cramped DI booth to hauling prints to unreachable levels, it was always fun, but never easy. Now, convince the State in Easton PA that there are qualified projectionists out there so they will start a series of films. I’m told that is the reason that they won’t/don’t offer a film series. Good Holidays to you as well!

Question, this theatre show IMAX 15/70 films before IMAX Digital. Is this a big IMAX screen or similar to baby IMAX but show IMAX 15/70 before IMAX digital started. I’m looking at old ads in 2004 and 2005 in the Daily News and this theatre show IMAX movies, IMAX Digital didn’t start until Eagle Eye in 2008.

this theater has gone downhill since they changed the seats. Almost all auditoriums have some of the worst sound I have ever heard, No bass and very low volume. One auditorium in particular has no sound coming from the left speakers and another has all sound coming from the surround speakers instead of the front. I remember how great this place was when it first opened.

BREAKING NEWS: Cinema de Lux in White Plains to closeThe Business Journal has learned that the Showcase Cinema de Lux at the City Center in White Plains will be closing. The last day of business will be Sunday, Oct. 29, the Business Journal was told.The 15-screen theater was a major attraction when it opened in on June 25, 2005, and has been a focal point in the city’s downtown ever since. It opened with approximately 3,200 seats but the seating capacity was reduced over time as the theater installed wider, more luxurious seating. An IMAX auditorium was added where movies could be seen on an almost wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor screen. The most recent IMAX attraction to play at the theater is “Oppenheimer.”

When asked about the closing, White Plains Mayor Tom Roach said, “I think it’s of course a sad day but not really a surprise. I think it’s a reflection of where the entertainment industry has moved. A combination of streaming and I think Covid really accelerated a process that was already underway.”

Roach said that the theater operation occupied a lot of space at City Center but he understood that talks are taking place with possible new tenants.

“When the film industry starts releasing films onto TV at the same time they’re putting them into theaters I think it’s a problem,” Roach said. He also expressed a hope that White Plains will not be without movies downtown for very long.
