Your comment about “Kingsman : The Secret Service” trailer is quite intriguing. I’ve attended screenings for AMC theaters in venues in many different regions. Lately the conclusion of the trailer would have a slide with the graphic of the movie’s title , AMC logo and date in which the movie was scheduled to open.

I’ve seen commercials for other movies during the pre-show. Perhaps that is when you saw it.?

The reunion special, naming of the winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race and wedding of season 6 contestant Josyln Fox to his husband was recorded at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel. outside view of marquee featured and the inside looks nicely re-done.

Nice to see the ‘old girl’ coming back to life!

Not sure what happened with the renovation plans, reports just say they were stalled. Which is shocking considering the rate of real estate expansion in the City

Circling back to Mistertopps comments. I thought that $29 was a bit outrageous for a “normal” showing for a movie, even in LA. According to what I saw on their website, if you become an iPic member ( which is free), you also can pay $19- its $29 for non members.

The Patio will be closing for the summer, unless it can get some sort of help in getting the air conditioning fixed

Unfortunately the first update to this theatre in almost 4 years is regarding a robbery that took place at this venue Friday night (3/28/14)

“Authorities say the unidentified man walked into the AMC Marple 10 theater in Delaware County at about 11 p.m. Friday night. The man allegedly took $600 from the registers and fled the theater within seconds. Police say a security guard followed the man into the parking lot and fired shots after the robber pointed a gun at him. Authorities believe one of the shots may have hit the car, which had two other men inside.”

Looks very similar in design and layout to the Loews 84th Street in New York city.

You didn’t mention it, but I’ll presume that this is a reserved seating venue as well

Thanks for taking the time and going there and taking the photos.

hdtv267 commented about AMC Loews 84th Street 6 on Mar 15, 2014 at 7:30 pm

I didn’t visit the concession stand on my trip. They did re-do the lobby and moved it over to the side. I had attended a 9:30 am showing and well with having Artie’s down the street, I didn’t have need to visit.

No sign of a bar of any kind there and it might be a good thing,since I located an article about this now being called the “perfect theatre for couples”– knowing that the arm-rest in adjoining seats can be lifted up, who knows.

Here’s that linkage….

in answer to Dave’s question, there is now stadium seating and quite ample space between rows.

If you live in New York City or live any place near it I don’t understand why you wouldn’t attend a movie here than some nondescript mall googolplex.

This was one of my favorite film going experiences today. Reserved seating, plush recliners, courteous and attentive staff (when I was dashing out to refill my water bottle, someone standing on the floor I was in [bottom floor] informed my I could use the Coke FreeStyle machine and get my water from there.

It’s so enjoyable even with the reserved seating if you wish to not view previews you don’t have to. You’ve got a ticket reserved. The only downside was what I noticed when I left and headed out onto Broadway- the ticket buying process at the box office can be quite cumbersome with people picking their seat locations , so if you’re running late this could be a problem.

I used my AMC Stubs reward and bought ticket online and selected my seat that way and picked up using ticket kiosk.

Movie I attended was “The Grand Budapest Hotel"which was a really enjoyable movie- but you need to be a fan of Wes Anderson to truly enjoy it.

Congratulations and best wishes to you and your company on this acquisition. I had noticed the sale signs were removed from the marquee and was about to post up here and wonder if any one had an update.

Please do keep us informed as to the progress and also what plans your company has that you can share with us as to the venue’s use (movies, live theatre, etc)
