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 theater is currently listed on Regal’s website as the Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 & RPX.

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.

moviebuff82 on September 19, 2017 at 1:28 pm

Let’s see AMC Empire do that too.

xbs2034 on September 19, 2017 at 9:53 am

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

Mikeoaklandpark on September 19, 2017 at 9:10 am

Are they installing recliners

xbs2034 on September 19, 2017 at 9:08 am

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?

I’m happy to report that our 70MM print of “Dunkirk” went out in the same pristine condition it was received in. As a matter of fact it is being shipped back to Warner Brothers to be used for select future screenings.

FAShaffi on August 24, 2016 at 10:27 pm

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

moviebuff82 on May 10, 2016 at 5:44 pm

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.

markp on December 26, 2015 at 7:31 pm

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.

I hope you are Mark P. Best to you
