I've been living in Ossining now for a little over year. I'm looking for movie theater recommendations in Westchester. I've been to:

Clearview Mount Kisco: Free/discount tickets to Optimum Rewards card holders (+). Seats are pretty uncomfortable (-). Good frozen yogurt place next door (+). Shows sell out regularly (-).

All Westchester Saw Mill Multiplex (Hawthorne): close to home (+), seats & screens just ok (-).

Greenburgh Multiplex Cinemas (Elmsford): good seats/screens (+), discounted tickets on Tuesdays (+)

We used to go to the Central Avenue theaters when we were kids, but I haven't been to any of them in decades, so I don't know how they are now.

Anyone else have some theater reviews?

Jacob Burns in Pleasantville.


Great seats, sound and environment but more of an eclectic selection.

For example, all summer this summer, they are offering a series of music documentaries. A few years ago, they played all of Hitchcock's movies.

2x on Jacob Burns - nice facility, not the traditional box office blow out action/comedy movies

city center in white plains is a good theatre, always find it to be clean, nice seats, lots of title and food options

The Paramount in Peekskill has interesting, offbeat movies. Its an amazing space and a great place to see a movie. They occasionally do free classics too--I saw the Wizard of Oz there, first time ever on a big screen and it was so cool!

For megaplexes, the UA Cortlandt Town Center in Cortlandt on route 6 is good--big screens, comfy seats.

Jacob Burns is totally the best. Love to go there--though their kids movie selections have gotten much poorer in the last few years.

New Roc in New Rochelle has a fabulous Imax with an intense sound system. The movie Avatar in 3D was almost an out-of-body experience. Don't bother with New Roc on the weekends, too many kids.

I agree with the list so far, especially Jacob Burns, and City Center in WP. For smaller theaters, I like Bronxville and Larchmont, and the Bedford Playhouse, all Clearview Cinemas. They might not have the latest features, but are comfortable, especially if you have a small child (as there are a couple in my family) who might be apprehensive about large multiplex complexes.

The Central Avenue Theaters look as though they have not been updated in decades. I was in one a couple of years ago, near Barnes & Noble, to see some movie on the spur of the moment with a couple of friends, and I would not go out of my way to visit. I don't think it has been renovated, at least not from the front door when I was in the same plaza a couple of weeks ago. It, too, I believe is a Clearview theater.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

I like the Bronxville theater. It is kind of old fashioned but not in the grandiose pre-war sense. Just a nice little neighborhood movie-house.
