In the heart of Larchmont sits the Historic Larchmont Playhouse. Every time I visit this theater with my children-I can not help but feel that familiar sense of nostalgia of my own childhood when my parents brought me to see movies such as “The Vanishing Wilderness” in 1974 and “Island at the Top of the World” also released in 1974. For my parents the Larchmont Playhouse was a nice quiet alternative place to see a movie compared to the louder and rowdier downtown New Rochelle movie theaters such as RKO Proctors and the Town theaters that both ironically have gone out of business. Over the summer I did take my daughters to the Larchmont Playhouse to see “The Secret Life of Pets” “Finding Dory” and “Nine Lives”. I hope that this tradition will continue. However -I have to face the facts that small town movie theaters are slowly being driven out of business by the modern multiplex theaters that offer reclining chairs, IMax movies, Bucket loads of popcorn and movies in stereo surround sound. In the mean time I am still able to walk my daughters up the street to see a movie and spend quality time.
