Not what we needed in the area is another supermarket especially a ShopRite. The area needs another movie theater.

Just the IMAX theater is going to be demolished. Because of the location of the theater to the old railroad bridge that will be replaced. Plans call for a new theater to be built on the other side of the museum.

Too bad. It was one of the few theaters in the area that showed independent and foreign films.

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.

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}: 1. 74 2. 63 3. 74 4. 71 5. 74 6. 74 7. 74 8. 63 9. 74 10. 70 11. 73 12. 75 RPX 13. 70 14. 74

From the seating chart, the theaters are all wider than long.

“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.
