New Plaza Cinema

Cineplex Odeon opened this 300-seat single screen theatre on December 8, 1989 with “The War of the Roses”. Clearview took over operations when Cineplex Odeon merged with Loews, but had to divest some Manhattan cinemas due to anti-trust concerns. The movie theatre is downstairs.

On April 2, 2009, Clearview closed the theatre. Later in 2009 the auditorium was taken over by the New York Institute of Technology. In January 2019 it was renamed New Plaza Cinema. It was closed on January 13, 2020 when it was flooded by a local burst water main.

I have been wondering lately why the Lincoln Plaza owners didn’t consider buying the theatre. It would have made for a good seventh screen.

This was a good venue for catching offbeat art films and avoiding crowds. Always empty, not shocked to see it go.

This is now called the NYIT Auditorium, but it’s sometimes still rented out for some screenings and/or premieres of smaller movies. I walked past a couple of years ago and saw Maggie Gyllenhaal being interviewed here for “Won’t Back Down”.

Sadly, this cinema was ruined on the morning of January 13, 2020, when a massive water main break in the neighborhood flooded its basement auditorium up to the ceiling, collapsing the walls and wiping out the projection room. It’s very sad to see this labor of love meet its end this way.

Actually, this happened once before and this space came back as a cinema.
