Concourse Plaza Multiplex Cinemas

Located a few blocks east of Yankee Stadium, the Concourse Plaza Multiplex Cinemas was opened on June 28, 1991. As of late-September, 2013, this is one of only two operating movie theatres in the Bronx. It was closed on March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Showcase Cinemas declared the closure permanent in February 2021. However, it was reopened by Showcase Cinemas on June 25, 2021.

It is possible that the water pipe issue is taking long since maybe the landlord has to pay for it. Regardless, glad that they woke up and are renovating here with recliners. They lost too much patronage to AMC Bay Plaza and Magic Johnson, Harlem. Last time I saw a film here, the screen was way too dark. You seriously have to wonder if the manager or even district manager ever take a peek in their auditoriums…

Correction to the above: They did not renovate with recliners as was done with White Plains , Cross County and College Point. So am speculating they are not upgrading this theater as they may be the theater chain coming to the nearby Bronx Point mixed use project at the southbound Deegan @ the waterfront next to the 145th Street bridge…

PS to the above: Then scroll down and click on the word Development and it mentions a state of the art theater as part of this project. The sign for Cinema also appears in one rendering.

Did they close permanently? They had upgraded to recliners so am wondering if the closure is temporary even though it dropped from their website. Will ask next time I go to their other theaters.

Please update, OPEN, Showcase Cinemas just reopened the complex. It was the last NYC Metro Area theatre to open by the chain.
