Regal Union Square Stadium 14

Manhattan’s first all-stadium seating megaplex opened its doors for business on November 13, 1998. 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.

Saw BvS in 4DX here this weekend, and yeah at the start it seems really cool, but there is a reason this type of experience usually is seen in short theme park rides. As with a 2.5 hour movie it can get exhausting, take you out of the movie, and even uncomfortable at times (didn’t like getting sprayed with water so I turned that off which is an option), and I found IMAX to be a better way to see this film.

Still, I would like to at least try it one more time with a shorter film (also I didn’t buy any concessions for the film, and would advise anyone seeing 4dx to do the same as I could see that being a problem). We’ll see if the high ticket price also becomes a problem, but at least for now I had to sit in the first row and looked like most showings were sold out, and it is something which I can see perhaps having more lasting appeal to tourists and kids (when I described it to my nephews they thought it was the coolest thing).

I saw Hotel Transylvania 2 in 4DX at a different theater in the Boston area but my reaction was pretty much the same as yours xbs2034. It’s enjoyable in small doses but I feel it is better suited to a theme park ride than a feature film. I didn’t mind being sprayed with water but did not like the simulated smells, which were a major turnoff for me.

When this theater opened and battery Park they were opened under United Artist chain. Even after Regal purchase UA they kept the UA name except here and maybe Queens. Does anyone know why?

United Artists Court Street also opened as a Regal, became a UA like Batter Park but never went back to being a Regal even though you can tell it was a Regal by the neon signage in the concession area on the main level. I guess they wanted no more UA’s left in Manhattan because Regal seems to be the primary brand they seem to want to concentrate one.

Happy 20th anniversary to this theater this month!!! It was here during showings of Meet Joe Black that the teaser for “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” was shown before and after the movie, causing a media frenzy which resulted in a so-so movie that has become a defining moment for a young generation whose older siblings grew up with Star Wars and were weaned on the Special editions a year ago. It was during one of the showings that a man used a video camera, made a bootleg copy of the trailer with a packed crowd, and posted it on the internet way before Youtube existed. Soon after, the trailer made its debut on TV shows and on Apple’s website, where the second trailer broke records online. The rest is cinematic history.

Unfortunately, this theatre dose not offer reduced prices before Noon. Doesn’t REGAL know that they have competition with the 19th Street, Village VII, Village East and Chelsea that offer discounts before noon.

Also, those theatres have recliners. Union Square still has those uncomfortable UA seats when it open in 1999.

Isn’t the Union Square under going renovation. It looks like only 7 screens are open at this time.

On this date 20 years ago, The Phantom Menace made its debut here in Dolby EX and THX and became a huge hit.

Please add to description, theatre open on November 13, 1998 and it was opened under United Artists Theatres. This was built by UA and had THX sound in theatre 3. It was branded Regal Cinemas in the mid 2000’s

The theatre is still under renovations. Presently, only Theatres 1 to 7 are open. Theatre 8 and the upper level is closed. According to a Regal employee, Union Square will be getting RPX.

The usher said the 2nd floor will open next year. Presently, your purchasing tickets from kiosk or at the refreshment stand. The Regal project started last winter, can’t believe it takes a year to renovate a whole level. Posted a couple of photos from the theatre.
