Re-opening after 911.

One-time United Artists 16-screen, all-stadium seating megaplex which opened its doors by Regal on July 14, 2000, but, because of its location far, far, downtown, has never truly captured the fancy of the Manhattan moviegoing public. It was taken over by United Artists in 2001.

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. On August 8 2003, United Artists closed screens 1-5 and they were handed back to the landlord and they became a DSW Shoe Warehouse.

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.

The theatre box office was relocated to level 1 of the movie theatre. The original marquee is no longer their and the orignal box office was sold to the Hotel Conrad. I posted photos of the theatre taken in 2003 and the present. The theatre now has recliners and the business is up on the weekend now.

The theatre capacity based on (not including wheelchair spots) Level 1 (at one time Level 2 6-10) 1. 74 2. 60 3. 75 4. 123 5. 215

Level 2 (at one time Level 3 11-16) 6. 70 7. 57 8. 64 9. 73 10. 124 11. 220

Regal doses not offer RPX at this location. They probadly didn’t install it due to low attendance. Regal does not offer expanded concessions at this site.

Please update the description, it open as Regal Cinemas in 2000. It was the 3rd theatre to enter the New York Market. A couple a years later, prior to them merging with UA, UA took control sometime in 2001.

Please update, on August 8, 2003 UA gave back Level 1 (Screens 1-5) back to the landlord, bringing the screen count down to 11
