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.

Film still rules over digital any time of day. No computer glitches, soft images, and soft surround sound.

What are the seating numbers for each screen?

hdtv267 on December 4, 2016 at 12:11 pm

why is it relevant- just because someone posted it for Lincoln Square. Go ask on Facebook. , oh wait- that’s what this has become.

I need that “angry” emoji installed

so 34th street has 2860 seats, Lincoln Square has 3907 seats and Kips Bay has 3000

Kips Bay would have to have significantly lower seating capacity than the other two now, as all its screens except for the IMAX use recliners (which AMC is using for sites like Kips Bay that have had declining attendance).

The only imax theater in nyc to play the Voyage of Time in Ultra Widescreen 3.6:1, the widest out there apparently. I have NO clue what this will look like when presented and it seems to only be playing at 2:30 pm and 10:10pm. If anyone can go, can you report back on what this looks like?

Poland626, I saw the original release of Voyage of Time here, and it filled the IMAX screen. With regular scope films in IMAX there is some letterboxing, so I’m afraid there will be pretty large black bars used for 3.6 (and this is already the smallest IMAX screen in Manhattan).

Also sounds like this version strips away Brad Pitt’s narration to let the visuals and music carry the story; interesting experiments to be sure, but seems like a far less accessible version than the original release.

@xbs2034, I assumed empire 25 was the smallest as 34th does open up sometimes for the digital films.

Yea I’ve seen the letterboxing on regular films, I can’t imagine what this will look like. I hope some reviews start coming out in a day or two.
