    The ones near me aren't that prolific for living in Pleasantville, NY, so don't expect much.

    Saw Mill Multiplex Cinemas, Hawthorne, NY


    Greenburgh Multiplex Cinemas, Elmsford, NY

    I am not that far from White Plains, so here is Citycenter 15, though I find it overrrated, not to mentioned that you have to pay for parking if you can't find it outside.

    about the complexity of...life !


    The urban design concept of the UFA Cinema Center confronts the issue of public space; currently endangered in European cities. This situation is caused by the financial insolvency of city governments, which forces the sale of public space to developers, who then propose monofunctional buildings in order to maximize capital return.
    By disintegrating the monofunctionality of these structures and adding urban functions to them, a new urbanity can arise in the city. This character of this urbanity would not only be determined by functional differentiation and the creation of new spatial sequences thereby, but also by the injection of media events.








    The design is characterized by two intricately interconnected building units: The Cinema Block, with eight cinemas and seating for 2600, and the Crystal, a glass shell which serves simultaneously as foyer and public square.
    The interweaving of public squares, public interiors, and passageways was proposed as a way of energizing and densifying the new center of Dresden. The junctures between these urban vectors are defined as public spaces.
    The Cinema Block opens up towards the street and is permeable for pedestrian traffic between Pragerstraße and St. Petersburger Straße. It is differentiated by the circulation system of the cinemas and by views through to St. Petersburger Straße.

    The Crystal is no longer merely a functional entry hall to the cinemas, but an urban passageway. The bridges, ramps and stairs to the cinemas are themselves urban expressions. They allow views of the movement of people on a multitude of levels, unfolding the urban space into three dimensions. The lively quality of this space can be described in relation to the dynamic structure of film. The Skybar, the "floating" double-cone inside the foyer, is accessible and will host different functions (café, bar etc.).In this way, the content of the building becomes visible to the city as much as the city is visible from the building. It is an inside-out building which sustains a dialogue with the city. The media event - projected from the interior towards the exterior - assists in the creation of urban space.
