There are 3 screens seating 77/23/30.
Here is an article about the theater, part of it has been re-purposed as condos. The theater building itself was not demolished.
Jumped the gun a bit. Theater closed on Monday November 11th. It is a nice space. Hope someone else takes it over. Lowering the admission price a bit would be good.
Actually Long Shot and The Intruder are alternating screenings in Theater 1 and 4 with The Avengers 10:00 AM show in Theater 1. Info obtained from Fandango.
Krakatoa East of Java opened on Wednesday June 26, 1969 at the Cinerama in Manhattan. I checked the opening add using NewYork Times Time Machine. Nothing is mentioned concerning reserved seats or reserved performances. There were 4 shows daily at 11:30 AM, 2:30, 5:30 & 8:30 PM. Extra performance on Friday & Saturday at 11:30 PM.
Grand opening Friday April 19th 2019.
Isn’t the Union Square under going renovation. It looks like only 7 screens are open at this time.
Thanks for the correction. I did use the Regal site. Even still the theater seat count seems low for Manhattan. Curious if the theater will attract larger attendance than the Regal Battery Park. When I lived in Manhattan that was my theater of choice even though it was out of my way. I would stay clear of the Times Square theaters as well as the 34th Street (I lived on 30th & 9th before Hudson Yards made the neighborhood too expensive) and the Kips Bay which both seem to attract the bridge and tunnel crowd.
My seat count on the RPX Screen 12 is incorrect. This screen has 144 seats. There are 7 rows total with 6 of those rows with 21 seats. Sorry for the erroneous information in the previous post.
The seat count for the theaters (included handicap spots}:
12. 75 RPX
From the seating chart, the theaters are all wider than long.
Now operated by Flagship Cinemas. This location reopened late 2018.
“Heaven’s Gate” played for 7 days, then was replaced by “Apocalypse Now” as a re-release. This must of left the management scurrying to find a holiday replacement for one of the premiere theaters on the East Side.
“Heaven’s Gate” had it’s World Premiere at the CINEMA I. Now can be found under City Cinemas Cinema 1, 2 & 3.
Both 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Dark Knight are playing for another week.
The restored print is showing at the AMC Empire on 42nd Street. I myself an seeing it at the Regal New Roc Center in New Rochelle on a true IMAX screen.
The Dark Knight is showing at 9:00 PM daily. Those performances are pretty well sold out through at the weekend.
Both films are being shown 15/70mm.
The seats are on sale on Fandango. Daily shows at 1:15 PM & 5:00 PM, with 9:30 AM shows on Saturday & Sunday.
All one has to do is check the website. Opening August 1st. The calendars are up already.
2001 opened at the Seattle Cinerama on 5/28/1968 and played for 77 weeks.
The Jerry Lewis Cinema in Waterville Maine was a single screen.
Disney required theaters to guarantee at least a 4 week run to book Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
“Justice League” is showing in 70MM on screen 3. As well as IMAX 2D; RPX 3D & 2D; Digital 2D & 3D.
I was surprised by the 70MM presentation. Might check that out this weekend.

Here is a link to photos of the remodel.
The overture was included with the presentation at the El Capitan in LA.
The web site is fully up with the re-opening attractions listed. Looking forward to checking out the re-model. Probably should ce changed back to open.
