New York, NY: Paris Theatre Closes as the Last Single-Screen Movie Theater in City

Posted on Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019 4:05 PM

The Paris Theatre in New York City closed August 27, 2019. Located on 58th Street near 5th Avenue in Manhattan, the theater originally opened in 1948 and was the sole remaining single-screen movie theater in New York City.

The following message was posted on the theater door last week, when audiences showed up expecting to see the documentary, Pavarotti:

Unfortunately, our lease has ended and the Paris Theatre is now closed

We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all our guests over the years.

Thank you for your patronage, and we regret that we cannot continue to serve you.


The Management

It was operated by City Cinemas, but owned by real estate developer Sheldon Solow. City Cinemas also operated the Beekman Theatre, which closed last week as well.

Moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the City Cinemas Cinemas 1 2 and 3 and the CMX - New York East 62nd Street.
