Re-opening after 911.

One-time 16-screen (now houses 11 auditoriums, after giving up five screens to make room for a DSW Shoe Warehouse), all-stadium seating megaplex which opened its doors on July 14, 2000, but, because of its location far, far, downtown, has never truly captured the fancy of the Manhattan moviegoing public.

Closing after suffering extensive architectural damage on September 11, 2001, the Battery Park City Stadium resumed its celluloid life in May of 2002, serving (and continuing to serve) as one of many hosts to the enormously popular Tribeca Film Festival.

That’s exactly why I very seldom go anymore. As much as I love movies I just can’t tolerate the constant chatting…talking on cell phones…the incessant rustling of candy wrappers…and not to mention feet up on the seat right beside your head. And this rude behavior is not always limited to teens and young people either. Older people who should be familiar with theatre etiquette are sometimes just as rude.

next year marks 10 years since this theater opened, and became the 9/11 theater due to its close proximity to the twin towers. In 2012 the 10th anniversary of the Tribeca film Festival will take place.

This theatre opened in July 2000, so the tenth anniversary was two months ago.

They’re currently doing some sort of construction there: the bottom floors are closed and customers have to take a series of escalators to the third (or was it fourth?) floor to even reach a box office. The rest of the theater is blocked off with partitions. The entrance to the building itself is a bit hard to find; the outside is blocked off with Regal-marked wooden partitions that point in the general direction of the entrance but it’s easy to miss.

We went there on a Thursday evening and the place was dead; the staff didn’t even bother taking our tickets.

On this day 10 years ago, this theater was severely damaged. It would take several months before the theater reopened.

Does anyone know of a theater operating in this neighborhood before the construction of the World Trade Center? The theater would have opened in 1927 at the southwest corner of Cortlandt and West Streets. The project was mentioned in the July 13, 1927, issue of The Film Daily. If it did get built it might not have operated for very long.

This theater now has reserved seating and will soon get king sized recliners in every screen.

The installation of recliners is posted on the Regal wed site. I posted this the other day but it seems to have disappeared. But we still have postings from hdtv267.
