Opening Announcement-Boxoffice Magazine Theatre Construction Roundup July 1985

Loew’s Circuit recently opened their Loews 84th Street Six in New York.

The state-of-the-art theatre has a computer controlled air-conditioning system and a message center which hangs under the marquee.

Two electronic mini marquees in the lobby direct patrons to the proper auditioriums.

The theatre is equipped with 70mm and all of the auditoriums have Dolby stereo and JBL speaker systems. A huge 25 X 80 mural is the focal point of the lobby, along with a giant circular refreshment center with eight serving stations.

As in all the Loews theatres, each auditorium has a different color theme.

article?

it’s a run on sentence disguised as a paragraph.

I’m thankful he contributed to the site, but it’s nothing to hold a parade over.

But , MovieBuff, echoing other’s wishes, it’s time for you to take your shtick here

The Michael Kay Show on the YES Network and ESPN Radio 98.7 FM mentioned this theater alongside other New York City theaters that the radio hosts have went to recently. Last year marked 30 years since this theater opened, during which for a time the parent company of the theater sold the theater business to TriStar which in turn had some of its movies being shown there alongside Columbia movies well into the late 1980s when Tristar was bought by its sister company and Coke sold CPE to Sony, which in turn put in one of the first SDDS units in the theater for the launch of Last Action Hero which was a fluke.

Two more movies I saw here that I forgot to mention: Blue Steel & Pretty Woman. The next time I’m in New York I’ll have to come back. Most of the NYC theaters I visited back in the day are, sadly, long gone.

Sad the got rid of the David Rockwell designed concession stand in the AMC redo in 2013. I believe the stand was originally one of the first to feature a gigantic popcorn tub above the stand when it was redone in 1996, each popcorn kernel was as big as a basketball. Also AMC got rid of the color LED Daktronics Marquee sign advertising the films showing, instead we have the AMC logo on a yellow metal background, so much for progress.

Me and my Mom went to opening day at the theatre on 3/15/85 and we saw Lost in America with Albert Brooks.

I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron here last night (downstairs in Theater 5) and it was awesome. Lots of space between rows, so you barely have to move your feet if someone is trying to get to/from their seat. I’ll definitely be coming to this theater a lot from now on, unless I want to see something in IMAX.

“The Rocketeer” showed at the Loews 84th Street 6 in 70mm 6-Track Dolby Stereo SR beginning on Friday June 21, 1991 (the film’s nationwide release date).

I went last night for the first time to this theater. Wow!

So worth the extra subway stops.

Do all screens here have the same seats?

hdtv267: In other areas of the country they have taken some of their aging, smaller but still profitable theatres [ http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/7740/comments ] and installed the reclining seats and upgraded the concession operation, plus they have installed ‘MacGuffin’s Bar’ in the lobby, serving beer, wine and spirits that you can drink there or take to your seat. Have they done that here? I’m curious to know if that creates problems in that particular theatre, especially if they are still booking it as an action house.

Was the new seating installed on the original sloped floor, or have the auditoriums been converted to stadium seating?

there was an article in last week’s NYT about the luxury seat resurgence and has photos of the seats in this theater.

The theatre is being renovated in stages. In at least one room comfortable reclining chairs have been installed, which cuts down on seating capacity while making the audience virtually horizontal. When attending “Star Trek Into Darkness” other audience members were similarly bemused by the recliners. It was like being in your living room with the largest TV screen in the world. The hazard is if the movie is a real dozer – reclined, you are more inclined to fall asleep.

I checked the listings for the Loews 84th this weekend and noticed a drop in the number of films playing there. Based on the listings for the weekend (and into the following week), it seems that films are only being shown on three of the six screens. I haven’t had the chance to walk by the theater to inquire, but my hunch is that the auditoriums are being renovated. If so, an overdue development, to put it mildly.

An article in The Gothamist names this as the worst theatre in NYC, listing a myriad of problems. I have never been to this theatre, I would like to see comments from patrons.

This theatre opened on March 15, 1985 and the intro needs to be corrected.

The opening films were Mask, Into The Night and Lost In America.

From the intro:
“At one time, the Loews 84th Street was the highest grossing movie theatre in the country. It was the highest grossing theatre in NYC until the Loews Lincoln Square opened in late 1994.”

From 1989 to 1994 the Chelsea 9 was the highest grossing theatre in NYC.
