Larchmont Playhouse Purchased by Film Lover, Billionaire Developer


A New York City developer, film lover, and Harrison resident, Charles S. Cohen, has purchased the Larchmont Playhouse and plans to transform the theater into an art house cinema.

The eighty-year-old theater, located on Palmer Avenue in the center of town, has been closed since September. ( See our previous coverage.)

The asking price as of April 2017 reportedly was $1.5 million.

Cohen’s companies, the Cohen Media Group, along with Cohen Brothers Realty, have a strong track record restoring other failing movie theaters including the Quad Cinema in Greenwich Village and New York’s Academy Theatre at Lighthouse International. The company says it plans an 18-month renovation and redesign of the playhouse.
