The Landmark at 57 West hosted arthouse films in its eight auditoriums, and featured a high-end cocktail bar called JD’s Place.
Located at 57th and Twelfth Avenue – a few blocks from the Upper West Side – the theater reportedly struggled to attract crowds since it opened in the fall of 2017.
Paul Serwitz, the COO of Landmark Theatres, told Deadline that “It was a troubled theater as beautiful as it was. When I got there, we inherited a tough theater that proved really not financially viable because of its rental obligation. Fast forward to these days when the pressure is on everybody, and it was too problematic.”
Serwitz also stated that the company is exploring options further uptown.
