Montclair, NJ: Historic Clairidge Theater Reopens

Posted on Friday, November 5, 2021 and updated on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 2:41 PM

The Clairidge in Montclair, New Jersey has reopened to the public. It hosted the Montclair Film Festival starting on October 22, 2021, followed by its first day of showing movies on a regular basis on November 4, 2021.

Located on Bloomfield Avenue and Fullerton Avenue about six miles northwest of Newark, the theater was formerly known as the Bow Tie Clairidge Theater when it closed in 2020. It is being operated by Montclair Film, which is a non-profit that is responsible for the Montclair Film Festival. The organization took over the theater in June 2021 and began remodeling the building.

It originally opened as the single-screen Clairidge Theatre in 1922. It was split into three screens in 1983, and it became a 6-screen location in 1997. It was known as Clearview's Clairidge Cinema, which was renamed to Bow Tie Clairidge Theater when Bow Tie Cinemas acquired Clearview Cinemas in May 2013.

To see what's playing and when, please visit the Showtimes page for the The Clairidge.

Until now, moviegoers in the area needed to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the AMC Dine-in Theatres Essex Green 9 in West Orange and the Allwood Cinemas in Clifton.
