You complain about the Loews name compared to AMC. They are the same since AMC bought Loews or merged. You should have been in the Boston area in the 40’s-60’s when we had both the Loews State & Loews Orpheum along with all the downtown, West End and other suburban E.M. Lowes theatres. They were not related. Then at one time Loews bought out USA(SACK) cinemas and most of the E.M. Lowes theatres became Indies or were torn down or just closed and left to rot.

They should probably update it and be more like the Empire as well as 84th street. I heard that people walking from Empire to this theater will be in for a treat soon…,d.cWw

The last time I passed by the marquee was in lousy condition — bulbs out, crawl not working…

I hope this theater gets recliners like some of the AMCs in nyc.

Sometimes complaining to Corporate works, A few months ago some bean-counter Manager got the bright idea to remove the paper towels from the rest rooms. Now if the hand dryers that are in there currently are inadequate and do not do a very good job in dying your hands, you leave with them still wet, also they are located over the counter in between the sinks, not the most ideal place for a hand dryer to be. To dry our hand properly we would have to go to concession stand to grab napkins to use to dry our hands with. Well we kept complaining over to AMC Corporate and voila, the hand towels are back in the restroom.

This theater’s proximity to Macy’s and the Garden make it a popular tourist attraction for New Yorkers.

WHAT LANGUAGE WAS THAT ?? How does Loew’s Jersey keep the Loew’s name(I am glad they do ). The Kings is a beautiful theater no doubt, but the Jersey is out of this world beautiful with a pipe organ that will thrill you over & over. Kings should re-think the offer to give the original massive theater organ back to the people that own the Kings…It really would be the icing on the cake!!

I beleive that Loews is a brand of AMC . In NYC the Loews name goes back for nearly a century. The newspaper listings usually says AMC Loews so and so cinema

Is there a Loews company anymore? Or are they just using the name. Now that AMC has been sold, I wonder if the Loews name will be dropped altogether..

I was here for the second time last month, and all was fine . Yes, tickets are $14- but it’s midtown Manhatten.

This theater is not too far from MSG.

This theater has caught on, because there always seems to be a nice crowd — not over-packed, but just enough to have a good movie-going experience. I especially like the bargain matinees, and its proximity to Penn Station.

I worked at a group that showed Transformers 2 in the IMAX screen. It was said that T2 would have scenes filmed in IMAX to support IMAX screens. Well, the screen, surprisingly works with it. Scenes did turn from IMAX to 35mm. It’s slightly bigger than 42nd’s but so much smaller than 68ths.

I saw Taking of Pelham 123 here on Thursday. Overall a good moviegoing experience , despite 3 minor complaints. I agree there should be restrooms on both levels. The existing ones should have been cleaner at 11 am on a weekday. And in auditorium 12 there is a musty odor from the carpeting when you first enter. I did not sample any of the concession items.

The theatre opened on November 2nd, 2001 with the premiere engagements being Monsters, Inc. (on three screens), Domestic Disturbance (on three screens), The One (on two screens), The Man Who Wasn’t There (on two screens), K-PAX (on two screens), Bandits and Thirteen Ghosts.

In November of this year, this theatre, along with The AMC Empire 25 and the AMC Loews Kips Bay 15, will be a Digital IMAX Theatre.

I went to the latest Indiana Jones there – literally – out of desperation – due to sold out shows at other theatres.

Here’s what I found.

A big – stadium seating – theatre with an enormous semi-curved screen (theatre 13)…..

good seats (the leather ones were insane) – plenty of leg room ……

Vacumed floors…semi clean restrooms – varied and plentiful candy counters…

excellent sound…

pleasent crowd..

I’m a 34th street boy from now on!

Is this place doing any business yet?

hardbop on May 10, 2006 at 7:24 am

I attended several screenings here as part of the Tribeca Film Fest. I attended at least two screenings in theatre 11 and there was a problem with sound leakage from the booth into the theatre. It sounded as if the sound from one of the other theatres leaked into theatre 11. It appeared to be coming from the projection booth so it could have been someone playing a radio in the projection booth, people talking in the booth or people outside in the lobby talking. It was very annoying.

I didn’t notice the noise problem occuring in Theatre 10, which is across the lobby from Theatre 11, 12 & 13.

This is now being advertised as the WEST 34TH STREET in newspapers since AMC took over.

I have to stick up for Loew’s 34th St. This theater is Vastly superior in every way to Chelsea Cinemas, but one: Location!
My partner and I gladly walk the extra few blocks to this theater to enjoy the stadium seating, superior sound, sight lines and overall environment. Yes, the restroom situation is annoying, but I can live with it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this neighborhood and I think it makes excellent business sense for AMC to hold onto this complex. A 60 story luxural rental complex has broken ground around the corner and there is much more development on the way. Regarding RobertR’s comment that “Sadly someday these places will be remembered as treasures.”…. We don’t know what the future of theaters will be. Loew’s 34th may indeed be regarded as a True Cinema Treasure and I don’t think it’s sad. I truly enjoy watching movies here and ultimately that makes it a treasure, not along the lines of Radio City, Loew’s Wonder theaters and the Roxy, but a treaure nonetheless.

Looks like they finally put Friday showtimes up for this theatre at a few hours ago. Sorry for the false alarm, folks.

The same problem existed at the “Worldwide theatre”. When it first opened it was “state of the art” but since it was located between 8th & 9th ave. (Like the 34th st.), few people would go there. Eventially the theatre dropped first run films and screened second run films for $2 and even then it was several years before crowds were seen there.
