According to the employees today, they said their getting recliners. Renovations start in February.

Once this theater gets recliners it will bring moviegoers away from Union square, which has the advantage of having 4dx.

Seeing a movie in a crowded multiplex is as enjoyable as going on a cruise one one of those new eleven story vessels that have more than 4,000 passengers.

While the marquee states it as AMC 19th Street East, it still has the look and design of an Loews Theater, unlike the newly refurbished AMC Village VII and AMC Kips Bay. Workers say it too should be/will be revamped into a true AMC Theater in the near future (probably with recliner seats etc..)

Theater is ok to still see a movie even with the nearby Regal Union Square. People still go here to see a movie, but sometimes its cool to go here on a lazy afternoon and see a movie with not much of a crowd to bother you by talking, using cell phones etc…. You can peacefully watch a movie for a change here unlike other noisy crowded multiplexes.

I think the overview paragraphs need an updating…

Nice picture along with the same font they use for their website with the curly letters.

AMC finally has removed the Loews signage (see in photo section) and instead of Movie Titles playing the Marquee it now simply reads AMC 19th Street East, the neon has also been changed from white to red to match the red AMC Logo. I wonder when the Kips Bay, 34th Street Lincoln Square & the Orpheum will get the same treatment? On the AMC website they still refer to this theatre as AMC Loews 19th Street East.

Looking at the Marquee photo’s, how lazy is AMC to not have the rest of it marquee filled in with black squares like Loew’s had always done in the past? Oh that’s right right I forgot in everyone of their renovations they completely ditch movie titles on a marquee for just their stupid logo, great way to do film exhibition AMC Entertainment!

The only good thing about them being worn out is that people have been there to were them out.I saw another post the some one said that the was a beat up old Loews in almost every city.

Inside is another story. The last time I was inside the auditoriums looked just worn out.

Looks O.K. from the outside.

This theatre complex was designed by Jerome Rubin Architects.

This stays open because the Union Square 14 is a rat infested pit and people try to avoid it.

I’m surprised this place is still in business with the Union Square 14 up and running. It was okay in its day when there was little competition (I can remember going here the first time and seeing She Devil on a very snowy day) and when I lived at Carlyle Court during my NYU days, it was a very close by place to catch a movie, but I can’t imagine it does much business these days. Anyone know?

This was an OK theater when Loews was still here. It’s gone WAY downhill since AMC took over.

Nondescrpit totaly functional multiplex. Saw “Lawnmower Man” and Jodie Foster in “Contact” among a few films but the UA, now Regal Union Square Stadium 14 or whatever the Hell they are calling it now took the oommph out of the place.

That “I’m Your Man” project was very confusing. It took them ten minutes to explain it, it was very herky-jerky whenever the “chosen” plot switch took place, and it was unfunny. The best part was that they handed out free passes to a regular movie after you left.
