does anyone know if auditorium 12 and 13 are the only scope screens in this theater? or are there more?

This theater is showing Captain America Civil War in RPX, 2D, 3D, and 4DX.

According to an article at a site called Comic Book Resources, “…4DX theaters… provide environmental effects synced with the movie, including ‘motion-activated seats, wind, fog, rain, lightning, vibration, snow, and scents.’” To me it sounds like it would be more annoying than engaging, but then not being a big fan of action movies maybe I’m just missing the subtle allure of such gimicks.

Regal opened the first 4DX auditorium in the U.S. (100 seats) at its L.A. Live multiplex in 2014, and another was opened in Chicago last year. The New York City venues will apparently be the third and fourth, so the system hasn’t exactly set the industry alight. At an extra eight bucks a pop (over 3D prices, not regular movie prices) I’m not surprised. I’d be unlikely to spend an extra eight dollars just to get my arse jiggled, my clothes dampened, and my nostrils assailed, and I suspect not many other people will go for it either. Though I do wonder how much Axe Body Spray they will release into the air every time Henry Cavill appears on screen.

Regal had this multiplex renovated after taking over. The project was designed by the Philadelphia architectural firm JKRP Architects (formerly JKR Partners) and there are four photos on this page of the firm’s web site.

We finished the run of Hateful 8 on thursday night, Jan 7. I am very proud to sat that the print went out in the same pristine condition it arrived in back on Dec 23.

Good work, MarkP. I am glad you got the job. Too bad the crowd control is so poor here.

Al Alvarez, Im glad you enjoyed the quality presentation on screen. Im a little disappointed there is no top or bottom masking but the tech did a good job to make the plate look good. Im taking great pain to make sure that print stays in the condition it is now. I am only there for 2 weeks as the projectionist, but so far our theatre is one of only a handful, and the only one in NYC with no problems. I hope to keep it that way.

Went to the 7:20pm showing of “H8TEFUL” on Christmas Day. The doorman quickly informed us that our home printed advanced $20.00 ticket had to be redeemed at the boxoffice, making it necessary to return downstairs to stand in line. After waiting in a lower lobby standing in line for 45 minutes we were finally allowed to climb up two non-operational escalators and into the auditorium at 7:25pm with the Overture already completed and a “CINERAMA” logo inexplicably on the screen. There was no top or bottom masking, making the screen look sloppy, but the presentation and sound were otherwise excellent. Seating continued for another ten minutes as people stumbled over other’s feet trying to find a seat even as the opening credits ended and the action started. No seats were reserved and some ended up in the whiplash front row.

At the ten minute intermission a repeat of the seating fiasco took place a second time as some in the audience had been waiting for three hours already desperately needed a bathroom break. Others ransacked the free program table as if it were a bargain basement rack when word got out that the programs had unique posters in the centerfold for each of the eight main characters. I will leave a review of the film to other sites but this awful experience at the Regal E-walk could never be confused with any other Road Show I ever attended. Perhaps Tarantino got confused with the 1940’s exploitation V.D. warning movie roadshow experience.

70MM installed for “Hateful 8”. I am awaiting word on if I will be one of the projectionists there for the run.

When this multiplex first opened, on the second floor concession stand they supposedly had a vintage-antique salvaged Loew’s signage above the stand, I wonder if it was truly vintage & if so which original Loew’s Theatre it came from? From the photo I have, it looks like it would have been a roof sign.

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
Giles on June 18, 2010 at 12:54 pm

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.
