AMC Loews 34th Street 14

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This 14-screen megaplex was constructed during the building, or overbuilding, of mega-plexes that took place in Manhattan in the late 1990s into 2000.

Located only eight blocks from the much higher profile 42nd Street Loews E-Walk, the 34th Street mega-plex is somewhat off-the-beaten track between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.

When both theaters were Loews houses, much, if not all, of the fare was day and date with the E-Walk.

I’m sure that AMC will get to them. If the Lincoln Square venue is any indicator NYC isn’t a prime market for them to do renovations right now after 84th Street.

You’re stating the obvious, I really fail to see what purpose it serves.

Actually AMC has redone the Village VII & are redoing the Kips Bay as we speak, so they seem to be working on their theatres that have lower attendance first, just like Regal will be redoing Battery Park City soon. The numbering of the seats I think will coincide with the changes to the AMC Stubs program where the Premiere members will have special reserved sections set up just for them as well as separate lines for tickets and concessions & other perks that the people that have the free version of stubs will not.

Here’s the text of that petition. (It’s heartfelt if not a little looney…)

As many movie theaters in NYC, the AMC Loews 34th Street 14 theater has been plagued by bed bugs. Just last month there was a report from people being bitten and these reports go back months. (

The anxiety exists for NYC movie patrons who would like to attend press screenings as seat fillers. However most blockbusters end up getting a screening at the 34th Street theater instead of a bed bug free theater.

One suggestion would be the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 or the Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 & RPX. Both of which can carry large audiences.

The outlets or whoever is responsible for organizing these screenings are being kindly asked to consider changing the venue until the AMC Loews 34th Street 14 theater has been cleaned from any possible bed bug plague.

As a reminder, a similar theater was shut down because of the same problem; the AMC Empire 25.

And as stated above, there are other venues (including from AMC) who could replace this common venue temporarily for screenings.

Please consider our petition.

The oldest FREE PASS hustle in the industry. Sign up at your own peril. It only hurts the business.

I know. After Kips Bay gets the treatment, this will be next on the list for renovations. This past Friday AMC put in reserved seating in its Manhattan locations, including this one.

I think AMC will retrofit every imax in Manhattan with laser projectors, followed by others on the east coast. Right now they are working on the busiest at LS.

Sorry to ask but what is a laser projector vs what they use now?

moviebuff82 on October 7, 2016 at 8:44 pm

laser means sharper images and vibrant colors and stable picture. The aspect ratio of Laser IMAX is more like standard imax vs digital imax which uses a ratio of 1.9 which is an enlarged regular auditorium screen. Voyage of Time is currently playing at this theater in IMAX.

Not to doubt what anyone here is saying, but I thought when they put us old film projectionists out of work with digital that the reason was sharper images, and stable pictures. Now digitals not good enough?? Sort of makes me glad I’m out of the business and only do occasional projection work now.
