Sundance Cinema coming to Westchester, New York


Sundance Cinemas signed a lease to build and operate an eight-screen cinema at Rivertowns Square, a new luxury retail center to be developed on the Saw Mill River Parkway in the village of Dobbs Ferry, NY. It will be Sundance Cinemas’ first theatre on the East Coast.

Robert Redford, Sundance Group president, said, "I'm so pleased that Sundance Cinemas will be building our first theatre in the Northeast in such a vibrant corridor in the state of New York. Westchester County has a long and rich tradition of supporting the arts, which makes me particularly enthusiastic about our future in this terrific community.”

The Sundance Cinemas Westchester cinema will occupy 32,500 square feet and will offer reserved stadium seating, a Sundance Bar & Bistro, and an art gallery featuring local artists. The specialty theatre is slated to open in the spring of 2014.

The Sundance circuit has theatres in Madison (WI), San Francisco and Houston, and a cinema currently under construction in West Hollywood, Calif.
