It’s kinda like Dolbyy Cinema at AMC where the sound is better than the imax yet the picture sucks

For me I think the RPX is a waste of money. Spending the extra money to see bars at the top and bottom of the screen is a waste.

Theater 13 (RPX) is indeed a flat floating screen now, so it doesn’t have masking. The GM told me that it was 70 foot.

Theater 12 remains a standard wall installed screen, so it has masking. A scope movie won’t have letterboxing here (thank goodness). However a flat movie in theater 12 will have some image cut off due to the masking being weird there for flat movies and not moving all the way to the sides. The staff could probably fix it by adjusting the lens before a flat movie begins playing but of course that is an unreasonable expectation nowadays.

I’d recommend for flat movies here to go to Theater 13 and for scope titles to go to theater 12.

However even scope films in the RPX are alright because the screen is so huge, it’s like an IMAX screen, the letterboxing isn’t as annoying as elsewhere.

The sad thing Theatre 13 specs are wrong because Regal put in a newer RPX screen sometime after Argo played in 2013. All scope films have letterboxing. Regal should of left the original screen in 13.

Living in Philly, I saw only one movie there, in 2001, in aud 2, because I was seeing more movies in historic theaters. The opening article has the screens at 32 to 45 feet wide (with 4 of them being 36 feet wide) except for 2 auditoriums with 64 feet wide screens. The 64 feet wide is huge, but I did not know that there were such large screens in this plex when it opened. I’d fear now they don’t use masking so scope movies in those 2 large screens which have flat dimensions, would be letterboxed.

What new logo signage? Nothing has been changed.

New logo signage has been at this theater since Cineworld took over Regal back in the fall of last year. AMC needs to step up their a game and put more recliners in their other non premium screens to match up with regal.

I disagree. There are more theaters and showtimes now than 30 years ago. Some shows sell out but most don’t. The smaller capacity is actually more profitable due to higher prices. Why go to a theater if its more comfortable to stay at hone? Its helping ticket sales. Recliners are becoming the norm braces on most cases, they increase profits.

Personally, I think this strategy of pulling out half to two-thirds of the seats to install lounge seating is nuts. Every time they sell-out a show, they’re leaving money on the table, plus it limits the number of ideal seats. It might make sense for Monday-Thursday, but it makes no sense for weekends when popular movies draw big crowds. This theater used to have almost 3300 seats. Now it’s about 1345. The RPX screen was 508 and #12 was 490. Now they’re 208 and 204. They should have left #12 and #13 alone. Why do we have to lie down to see a movie? Ridiculous, IMO.

The Regal recliners are more comfortable than AMC version. Won’t pay $30. for 4DX.

The new capacities are: 1. 102 2. 128 4DX 3. 75 4. 79 5. 79 6. 79 7. 79 8. 83 9. 84 (still closed, but will be open when Stars Wars play. 10. 70 11. 76 12. 204 13. 208 RPX/Atmos and Auro 11.1

The EMPIRE accross the street needs to upgrade or when movies play date, E-Walk business will impact the AMC Empire 25. The only time I’ll go to the EMPIRE is for IMAX 12 chanels or Dolby Cinema.

RPX here re-open. I saw Thor Ragnarok here. The upgrade is pretty cool the new recliner seats are more comfortable then the one in Dolby Cinema and the seats shake just like in Dolby Cinema. But I still pefer the Dolby theater across the street over this. You get better picture (Dolby Vision). I know they both offer Dolby Atmos audio but I find the Dolby theater to sound much better.

the new renovation is so good! They tottally gutted the theaters and vamped up the sound and picture in addition to good recliners not the cheap amc ones. This is probably my new favorite standard multiplex theater in the city.

They were doing the renovations when I worked there running Dunkirk in July. 4 theatres at a time.

Let’s see AMC Empire do that too.

Yes, and they are upgrading the sound systems to 7.1 or Atmos

StunPlex, this theater is currently undergoing renovations (looks like it is being done in phases with 7 or 8 of the 13 screens open at a time), so I think it is currently the RPX screen’s turn.

What happened to the RPX here?

Joe Vogel: 4DX may at the time of your post only had a handful of installations in the US, but internationally it’s installed in 400+ screens. It’s not exactly what I’d think of as the future of cinema but… target market etc… you may not enjoy it, but I imagine, for instance, a 10 year old would love it.

Here in the UK, Cineworld have an ongoing programme of new installations, including one at the Empire Leicester Sq., so I think it’s here to stay, at least for the time being…

The RPX auditorium in the JKRP Architects pages that you posted a link to can also be seen on Eomac’s site.

Rather an odd choice of wall colours. I wonder how big the screen is?
