Vague post. He’s referring to other theaters (formerly “sister theters” the Sony State 4 screener & the Astor Plaza being given over to other uses. This theater remains with as many screens as when it opened.

I am confused moviebuff82, is it not 13 screens anymore? How many are left?

This coming November, this theater turns 15 years old. It was the first megaplex in Times Square with 10 or more screens and did robust business and often carried over product from its sister theaters in the surround area when it was owned by Loews Cineplex. Things have changed since then…the smaller theaters have shut down and become retail space/concert hall venues, and attendance has changed yet the main two theaters in Times Square have attracted millions of moviegoers each year.

I can confirm that the RPX screen has Dolby Atmos. I saw “Noah” here in Dolby Atmos this weekend, and the Atmos trailer was shown before the movie.

The Regal E-Walk on 42nd Street opened as a Loew’s. The RPX screen is Theater 13 and there is not much difference in screen size than Theater 12. Theaters 12 & 13 are the 2 largest in the complex and had the same number of seats (550 per) and large screens. Regal did put new leather seating in The RPX screen and a more elaborate sound system but the screen size looks the same. The one sheet in the lobby says that the RPX screen has Dolby Atmos but I have not been able to confirm that.

I don’t know why anyone would pay so much to go here, when the AMC Empire across the street is only $6. for all shows before noon. And if something is playing at the E-Walk and not the Empire, then it’s usually also playing at the AMC 34th Street, only eight short blocks south.

Regal installed a new, oddly shaped screen in the “RPX.” Now, the scope screen is significantly SMALLER than the original screen in that auditorium. You get a bigger scope screen in the auditorium next door. For $3 LESS. This RPX think is the biggest scam on 42nd Street. “Making your big screen experience even bigger.” What a crock of bull. Save your money.

Interesting reading on this one.

apparently the New York Times ad on Sunday (6/20) has denoted the RPX system as having been upgraded to 7.1 digital surround

Giles

according to Dolby’s link of upgraded 7.1 sound theatres – Regal in and around Washington DC has started the conversion, but the RPX screen hasn’t – that’s very odd, I would have thought E-Walk would have been one of the first tier of theatres to have been converted.

any news if the RPX system/auditorium has been upgraded for 7.1 sound for ‘Toy Story 3’?

For $18.50 I expect them to have cell block technology so that NO one can call/receive/text – at all.

Theater 13 at the Regal E-Walk has about 550 seats, NOT 350 as claimed above. The size of the screen is about 60' wide – exactly like theater 12 next door. Except that theater 12 will cost you “only” $13. Which is why you will NEVER see the current week’s big release showing on both IDENTICALLY SIZED screens. If you fo;;ow what I’m trying to say…

LLNRYN, is the RPX the largest screen at the E-Walk? How wide is it? Do you know if its THX certified? Sounds like this auditorium is worth checking out the next time I’m in NYC.

For an event film like IRON MAN, Star Trek, etc etc, I wouldn’t mind the $18.50 for something truly extraordinary along the lines of real IMAX or its equivalent experience. But you know, why shouldn’t moviegoing be like this for the normal ticket price?

After seeing “IRON MAN 2” at the IMAX in Lincoln Square 13, I was curious to see it in RPX at the Regal E-Walk. I knew I was going to pay $18.50, so that wasn’t shocking. This is New York after all.

I will say that I was completely impressed with the RPX theater and its presentation. The theater is beautifully designed. The seats were pretty plush. Picture was stunning!

Most of all, the sound was the CLEANEST I’ve ever heard. The bass was totally clean, not muddy. But it was so LOUD, that at times, I felt my clothes were going to fly right off off me. To say the theater has those sub-woofers strategically placed isn’t a joke. I still have a mild headache.

I did speak to some of the staff afterwards. They said that Regal E-Walk isn’t playing in regards to this theater. No saving seats when it gets close to showtime. And they are adamant about throwing people who “act up” OUT! As to not spoil other patrons' enjoyment. They want the audience to have the BEST experience out of this theater possible.

Overall I thought it was a nice experience. There were less than 15 people there in the 350-seater. Which made it even more pleasant.

Will I see every film released there? No. $18.50 to see a film is steep. But for seeing something (again) like “IRON MAN 2” which I loved, I thought it was worth it. But I doubt I’m going to see “TOY STORY 3-D” there. I was told that’s going to be the next film there.

GILES:
Auditorium 13 is “converted."
They claim to have installed a new screen but it looks the same to me.
There ARE new seats and speakers and LOTS of neon at the entrance.
This has been my favorite theater since it opened in 1999. Is it worth $18.50? Absolutely not.
They are also being very shrewd. IRON MAN is being shown ONLY on one of their two big screens, so if you want to see it on the big screen, you HAVE to pay $18.50. Their other big screen (same size as the RPX) carries the regular admission price of $13 so of course they CAN’T book it into both big screens (although normally the current week’s big release is always on both big screens) because there is no REAL advantage to the RPX screen: give people no choice and they will pay you what you are asking for.

digital is the rage nowadays with 3D movies being the culprit. Ever since Avatar came out, every big movie that’s coming out this year (with a few exceptions) is coming out in digital 3D. Was this theater evacuated yesterday due to the bomb scare?

Why is digital “exciting”?

100K watts of power? Thats almost 10x as much as the 12K watts of power touted in the IMAX-lite AMC installs. But $18.50 per ticket? It would be worth only if I can use my Costco discounted tickets.

Yesterday they changed out those two neon crowns signs on each side of the marquee with two neon RPX signs.
