Not sure if this was ever posted but Alamo Drafthouse has taken over the old UA Cinema location at 2548 Central Park Avenue Yonkers, NY. and will be opening Spring/Summer of 2013.

  1. very interested in this

    1. This is very exciting! I went to an Alamo Drafthouse cinema in Austin on a recent trip (and asked on the appropriate CH board for food recommendations). Highly recommend!

        1. I heard about this last summer but haven't seen any work being done at the site.

              I was by there today and it looks like nothing is going on.

              1. re: JMF

                Exactly... nothing moving on the Five Guys next door either. Both have been pretty static since the summer.

                1. re: iluvcookies

                  I saw some signs of life in the movie theater yesterday, and there is a new "Five Guys Coming Soon" sign up. Maybe we will have these open in the near future.

          2. Is it me, or is this a strange location for an Alamo Drafthouse? I think of this more in a "hipster" type locale.

              I don't understand why you think the old Movieland cinema is a hipster type location. Would you please explain?
              Duh, read that wrong. Yes, not the best location. That area is more of a bargain shopping center locale.

              1. re: JMF

                No - i think it's definitely NOT a hipster location. It's actually a pretty dreary location, which is why I find the whole thing strange.

                1. re: JMF

                  I think scarsdalesurprise means that the location is NOT hipster enough for the Alamo Drafthouse.

                  1. re: JMF

                    I think scarsdalesurprise means s/he imagines the drafthouse would be in a more hipsterish location and the old theater is not quite that.
