Regal Union Square Stadium 17

Manhattan’s first all-stadium seating megaplex opened its doors for business on November 13, 1998 with 3,500-seats in 14 screens. United Artists were the initial operator. In the mid-2000’s it was taken over by Regal. Bookings consist mostly of standard major-studio Hollywood product and, usually at any given time, one or two indie-type and/or foreign flicks.

One of the most successful movie theatres in the city and a consistent source of sell-outs on Friday and Saturday nights. It was expanded to 17 screens in late-2019.

thehorror13. Did you look inside theatre 4, 5 and 9. Like to see photos of those houses. Theatre 17 wasn’t bad. I wish Regal left those 2 balcony screens as is. Since covid-19 haven’t got to Union Square yet, very poor selection of new movies to see

At TheHorror13, did yo look at theatre 11, the screen is scope, not flat

It’s too bad if they got rid of masking, particularly if you are seeing a flat film on a scope screen I find bars on the left and right of the screen kinda ugly. But hasn’t been the case with the two movies I’ve seen her post renovation (one scope and one flat), and have been pretty impressed with the lobby and interior redesign (there was special auditorium signage for 4DX and the location when I saw Demon Slayer).

Since the renovation and the installation of lounge seating, the total seat count (not including wheelchair seats) is down to 1036. It was 3065. Screen #4 is just 11 seats and screen #5 is just 12 seats. Who thought this was a good idea?

Please update total seats is 2068, @zoetmb you counting the seats with social distancing. Theatre 4 is 21 and theatre 5 is 23. You must be counting from Regal app which has every other row closed. Look at, they show all rows with the blocked out rows. Secondly, screens 10 thru 17 sold at full capacity prior to covid with full capaciy. Read my March 30 post with the capacity and look at and you will see the difference Also, on regal site you see the row letters skip B D F. That means A, C and E are closed off

@zoetmb look at the pictures site and see the demos. Since your reviewing the small theatres, why don’t post some photos of the screens. When I visit movie theatres, I take photos of the different auditoriums.

Please update total seats is 2068, @zoetmb counted the seat count based on social distancing.

OK, I recounted now that they’re fully open again and I get 2057 seats (not including wheelchair spaces). I suppose it’s possible there are some slight errors and it’s the 2068 that @ridethectrain claims.

1: 86, #2: 119, #3: 124, #4: 21, #5: 22, #6 (4DX): 120, #7: 124 #8: 98, #9: 50, #10: 135, #11: 127, #12: 133, #13 (RPX): 277, #14: 148, #15: 118, #16: 91, #17: 288.

@ridethectrain Theater 11 is indeed a flat screen. Only scope screens are theaters 3, 14, 15 and 16.

The renovations removed a grand interior staircase between the two levels. The cafe is where the box office once was, and now there is just one staffed station in the corner. The screens of the two main screens are in the same place the screens always were, and the renovations extend the balconies down with full stadium seating, which is why the former ”downstairs” screens are so small. They occupy only the bits of space beneath the original balconies. The large screens were always relatively small compared to the large screens at other big Manhattan multiplexes, so if these have all the same large screen and PLF movies as all the other multiplexes, there is no compelling reason to come here from outside the neighborhood. In auditorium 12 now and the seat has lots of leg room and is comfy enough but has no recline to speak of. The AMCs to the north and south have better seats and screens that are as good or better as any here, so there’s barely a reason to come here from inside the neighborhood. This was shinier and newer when it opened, but the AMC upgrades improved dowdy sloped floor multiplexes while this one, with its stadium seating only in the back rows with lots of flat screens…
