Just uploaded pictures of the three new refreshment stands at Lincoln Squre. Also the Loews Theatres removed outside with AMC.
at bigjoe59 I saw Captain Marvel in IMAX at Lincoln Square. Picture was beautiful and selected scenes where full screen
Stay away from this theatre, ushers and security guard dosen’t care about the patrons reading the credits. The usher put on the flood lights in theatre 5. The usher and the security guard very rude. A customer was looking for something they lost, instead of waiting for the end credits to end, they could do it know. I even flip the switch to turn the flood lights off, the secuity guard came and he didn’t he give a crap.
It was a group 17 that came in looking for the seats after the trailers started and rushing to leave and one patron lost something. Instead of waiting until the credits are over, they needed to find it fast to get on their rented charter bus.
I’ve complained to Regal a number of times, but the GM at Sheepshead Bay dosen’t care about the people that want to stay for the end of the film. Other Regal establishments in Manhattan are run a lot better.
Thease ushers need to visit Alamo Drafthouse and see a real movie theatre is run. Ufortately, Cold Pursuit wasn’t playing in Downtown Brooklyn. That my prefered movie theatre in Brooklyn, followed the Nitehawk Propsect Park.
The Empire is showing it age, theatre 7 and 8, some leather seats replace with seat backs from other auditriums. See photo
Theatre seats in
Theatre 1 240
Theatre 2 130
Theatre 3 75
They all run REALD 3D and usually show them all day compared to the big chains Limiting the showtimes.
They have a Dolby Digital sign next to Theatre 1.
Lastly, theatre still uses the old tickets from the days of the 70’s but you could purchase tickets online at Fandango
The theatres are nice, theatre 6 the sighlines are poor. Theatres 1 and 2 look the best and theatre 5 has 4 long rows, close to the screen (That was the pavilion ad on theatre before it closed). I posted some photos of the auditoriums. When in theatres 4 and 6, the bathrooms are a couple of flights downstairs.
This theatre needs reserve seating, people are fighting over seats. When pictures playdate with the Alamo, the Alamo Downtown Brooklyn is the better movie theatre.
General Admission (Subject to Change)
7 theaters, totalling 650 seats

Attempted to see “Schinderlers List 25th Anniversary” in Dolby Vision at this location. The projector for Dolby Vision wouldn’t start.
Just uploaded photos of the new AMC Prime Auditorium Screen #18. Theatre has Dolby Atmos, no Dolby Vision
AMC Prime at The Empire Screen #18. Dolby Atmos with Dolby Vision.
Just added photos of the Loews Auditorium now know as Dolby Cinema at AMC. Theatre has 297 seats based on the ushers timetable.
IMAX refreshment stand under renovation for about a month. If you buy refreshments you have to use the main stand on the 2nd Floor.
Dolby Cinema (LOEWS) opening within the next two weeks according to Lincoln Square employees
I heard rumors that Century 21 is closing and the Alamo taking over the 3rd floor with 7 more screens
The two largest screens 12 and 13 are not reserved seating. THE RPX theatre did not get the Regal Buttkicking Recliners.
Does anyone know the capacity of each auditorium. I know the IMAX is 654 and Screen 1 is 215. My movie was in IMAX and the IMAX screen looks like RPX or Dolby Cinema.
This theatre reminds me of the AMC Loews 34th Street and AMC Loews Kiips Bay before renovations. Still got the Loews brand inside.
I’ll post a picture of the IMAX screen when I get home next week.
Over my visits to the theatre during different years, never saw the theatre at Universal crowded, usually empty. My guess AMC didn’t want to spend money on upgrading the Orlando location. They did a renovation in the Universal Hollywood location. Downtown Disney Springs AMC is much more busier than Orlando, They now have reserved seating in all auditoriums.
The imax theatre has the new seats like Lincoln Square and has 12 channels sound. The auditorium was built with thr same Lincoln square screen. Unless there upgrade the IMAX picture to laser
My recent visit when I saw the Equilizer they turn the flood lights on during the credits. I yelled at the manager. He dosen’t care. I reported him to Regal.
Stay out of theatre 8 and 9, those screen do pillarbox at the top of the screen when in scope. Look at fandango, they say the screen number or the Regal app, if you see the seat map with the aisle in the midgle, it 8 or 9. Mostly, the films that are about to be dropped go in their, with the exception of Blindspotting last week. I saw that film at the Alamo Drafthouse, they respect the paying public,.
SDDS was gone eight years ago when digital projection came. The only digital formats are Dolby Digital and Datasat Digital Sound. Unfortunately Loews never renewed the THX license in the Loews auditorium.
Lincoln Square plus the Loews Orpheum Screen 7 and Loews Village VII screen 3 were once certified THX sound systems.
Years ago on busy movies ushers have checked tickets years ago their
Just posted photos of the old Loews Auditorium, construction outside of Loews auditorium and phots of the IMAX house
Reserved seating being expanded to all screens at this location. More people not sitting in their assign seats.
In my last couple of visits, their keeping those flood lights off during the credits. When my letters got to the coporate office, they got the message
For the first time, AMC Fantasy will be competing with the REGAL Lynbrook 13. Jurassic Park at both locations. The bad part AMC new seats they added a few years ago don’t recline. Regal Lynbrook will have full recliners.
