The wait is almost over: According to a representative of Owosso, Michigan-based Neighborhood Cinema Group (NCG Cinema), the new luxury seating cinema at the Hudson Valley Mall will open for business on Friday, April 19. Though screening information was unavailable as of press time, the opening is scheduled just one day after an official ribbon cutting ceremony will take place.
In August 2018, Regal Cinemas shuttered its 12-screen theater in the Hudson Valley Mall, leaving the immediate area without a first-run cinema for the first time in decades. In January, Coles H. Doyle of the marketing and operations divisions of Hudson Valley Mall owner Hull Property Group, confirmed in an e-mail that a new theater would soon take its place.
“The theater is being transformed into a luxury seating theater with new amenities and will open this spring as NCG Theater, which will be a significant improvement,” said Doyle.
The location in the Hudson Valley Mall will be the first in New York for NCG, which has locations in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and its home state of Michigan.
