Information is incorrect. See my last post. This theater is still a Carmike according to the staff and will be for the next few months. If someone has any other information please post it as I am anxious for AMC to get here. Thank you

Theaters 1-7 have been closed the past few weeks for renovation and installation of the recliners. Once they finish these 7 they will close theater 8-14. All theaters will become reserved seats. Not really sure how I feel about this. This chain is a first class chain.

Confirmed last night at this theater that this location will change to an AMC theater. I can only hope they convert it into one of their fork and dine theaters.

Did this replace an old existing theater?

In the late 70’s early 80’s it was a porn theater.

When this theater opened and battery Park they were opened under United Artist chain. Even after Regal purchase UA they kept the UA name except here and maybe Queens. Does anyone know why?

Mikeoaklandpark commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Sep 28, 2016 at 7:44 pm

So guys I have a question, is Imax different from Regal RPX? I saw Sully in RPX because I had a free ticket. I was not impressed. The screen in 2 of the other theaters are much larger than the RPX. I remember IMAX in Ft Lauderdale and it was this huge screen that the whole film covered. What I saw was like any other theater for a film in 2.35 aspect ratio, black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Not at all impressed.

Yes Planet Of The Apes played there in the late 60’s. I think it was before Funny Girl.

The theater will be going through a complete renovation starting in October. They are putting recliners in all theater ,plus a new digital sound and projection system and new screens. This theater is very well run and has great staff working there.

ALPS AMC purchased Carmike earlier this year. I didn’t know the merger was final. Glad Carmike there is good the one here in Asheville is the pits. I avoid it at all costs.

Digital 3d I totally understand. In 1999 and 2014 I saw the 60th and 75th anniversary screenings of Gone With The Wind and both times it was a 16 mm print on a huge screen opened for scope presentations. It was annoying as hell. My opinion they could have at least closed the masking to 1.85 ratio.

Mikeoaklandpark commented about Swap Shop Drive-In on May 19, 2016 at 9:21 pm

A lot of the screens are small and non have the capability to show scope unless they have gone digital and that has changed. Scope films used to be off the sides of the screen in the air. I hated it.

I didn’t realize in the beginning how many 2nd run movies they had after Marooned and how many weeks over the years they closed.

The developer has put up a sign saying land redevelopment so I called him and asked will this theater get to stay or possible a rebuild or a new modern theater and I was told no. The plans are retail shops which really pisses me off more than you can imagine. We need more retail like a hole in the head. I can only hope that the city council denies there plans for redevelopment. According to the man I spoke with the theate will be gone by early 2017. UGH :(
