MULTIPLEX THEATER IN NORTH ELMSFORD WILL CLOSE NEXT YEAR- LEASE NOT BEING RENEWED
Release Date: July 16, 2018

I received the attached letter from the lawyer representing the owner of 320 Saw Mill River Road advising that the multiplex theater's (National Amusement) lease expires May 31, 2019 and will not be renewed. William Null advised me that the property consists of 10.5 acres on 9A. No agreement has been reached with new tenants for commercial uses of the premises.

 

The site is presently zoned DS – Designed Shopping District which permits retails stores (including big-box retail) fully enclosed commercial recreation, restaurants, cinemas, etc. Multi-family housing is not a permitted use

 

I had been advised that there has been a steady  downturn in attendance and profitability at the theater. This occurrence for theaters has been experienced locally (Saw Mill Multiplex Cinemas in Mount Pleasant) and is symbolic of regional trends. In addition to the theater, the Greenburgh Multiplex site contains complimentary retail/service/restaurant uses.

 

 I’m obviously disappointed since I know that many residents have enjoyed the theater and businesses at the site over the years. A copy of an e mail I received from WIlliam Null, representing the owners, is attached.

 

Greenburgh, as well as communities all over the country are faced with the challenges of shrinking and evolving retail/entertainment sectors. As Town Supervisor, it is always helpful to hear from residents regarding uses that could be beneficial to the community. While the Town has no control over proposals submitted or has no power to force a tenant to renew a lease, feedback received from residents would certainly be shared with the site owner.
