There is an 8 screen iPic under construction in Rivertown Development in Dobbs Ferry off the Saw Mill Parkway in Westchester County.

The Paris is still showing “Love and Friendship” which has been showing all summer. The next movie will be 25th Anniversary of Merchant & Ivory’s “Howard’s End” the end of August. This film played here on it’s original release March of 92. “Cafe Society” is playing at the Cinema 1.

Not likely to happen at the Chelsea. NYC is an extremely difficult city to get a liquor licence unless they can buy an existing permit.

poland626 you probably should have put your comment on the Empire 25 page, but the fact is The BFG is playing at the Regal E-walk 13 and being a Disney release would not be playing at both theaters. We don’t want hdtv267 get his panties in a knot.

Big surprise. Bowtie did a great job with the remodel and I would assume it is a profitable location. When I lived in NYC it was always my choice of theaters over the AMC and Regal locations.

It is a shame this theater was butchering in the first place when the 3rd screen was added. It is a shame that the Upper East Side was the hot spot for films in the 60’s & 70’s and almost all the theaters in that area are gone. It seems now that NYC must be one of the most under screened areas in the US based on population. The majority of the theaters seem to be in the 34th Street and 42nd street areas that mostly serve the bridge and tunnel crowd.

Paramus has Blue Laws so stores are closed on Sundays except grocery stores. The theaters are the only thing open at the mall on a Subday. Makes parking easy.

No stadium in the orchestra seating of the Loews. Probably stadium seating in the balcony section. But never sat up there.

There are no plans for installation of recliners in the IMAX. New seating is planned on being installed but they are not going to want to decrease the capacity by 50%. Then tickets would have to be $42 to make the nut,

Maybe because it is booked into the Regal E-Walk 13 across the street.

Major completion coming their way. Construction has started on the iPic Complex being built off the Saw Mill Parkway just north of Yonkers.

Saw ‘Batman v Superman’ on on Sunday morning at the 9:00 AM show. The last time I went to the IMAX was to see ‘Interstellar’ had stopped attending because I was disappointed in the Digital presentation on that screen. The 15/70mm presentation on Sunday was impeccable. It was nice see the the full screen used again. The sound mix was excellent. It would be nice to see more IMAX prints struck until the laser projection becomes more wide spread. The start of the film was 15 minutes after the scheduled start which they announced a few times. The delay was because there was no preview bundle with the print of the film. And people assume there is going to be a slew of previews and arrive late. The next 15/70mm presentation will be starting April 29th for ‘The Beautiful Earth’ documentary.

mhvbear commented about Regal Cinemas Galleria Mall 16 on Mar 19, 2016 at 3:20 pm

The four screen added in 1995 were added on the second level of the mall near the food court. These screens were fairly small.
In 2006/2007 there was a substantial construction and remodel. The four screen addition was closed and a new wing was constructed that would house nine screen. the original 8 screens were decreased to seven screen and remodeled with stadium seating. The new nine screens were constructed with stadium seating. The original construction is now screens 1 – 7 and the new addition is screens 8 – 16. All theaters are now digital.

The Dutchess Cinema was located in Poughkeepsie, The Movie 4 was in the Dutchess Mall in Fishkill. The Movies 4 was carved out of retail space in the mall and was never a single screen.

Not recliners but they are getting new seating. Probably similar to the Chelsea.

I don’t see AMC installing recliners at the Lincoln Square. With the business this theater does, the last thing they would want to do is decrease the seating capacity. The reason the AMC installed recliners in the 84th Street and Village 7 is that these theaters were not high performing.

Was the 15/70 mm projector ever removed? I don’t remember ever seeing confirmation of this and it would be a big project to re-install.

I am not at all surprised the ‘Deadpool’ is being kept on the IMAX screen. It made 55 million this past weekend and will probably be held at least another 2 or 3 weeks. ‘Gods of Egypt’ hasn’t even been reviewed yet. Not a good sign.

The only renovation that has been talked about is laser projection and new seating in the IMAX theater. I don’t think anything has been planed for the rest of the complex. It would be nice if they left some of the more “high end” theaters with the Loews name unless AMC is required by the sale to change that at some point.

The recliners are among the worse “innovation” that chains are adding to their facilities. I avoid them like the plague. They decrease the seating and increase the cost of attending. If I had my dithers there would be no food allowed.

A nice article about the closing of the Ziegfeld. Great picture of the marquee. Somehow it is fitting that the “A Walter Reade Theatre' is now showing on the marquee.

This is the escalator that goes to the basement theaters, screens 10, 11, & 12.

Screens 1 – 9 Do not have stadium seating. But do have a good slope and have never had site problems. Screen 10, 11, 12 are in the basement and I have only been down there once and can not recall if they have stadium seating. These 3 theaters are fairly small and were added as an after thought.
