Currently listed on the Regal website as the Regal Destiny USA Stadium 19 IMAX & RPX. Also the chain should be Regal Entertainment Group not Regal Cinemas.

went back to the RPX screen over the holidays with the family to see ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ and … I must be overly sensitive to ancillary lighting, but man oh man, did the green exit signs create an obnoxious glow on the screen – and I thought the red haze at AMC Tyson’s Dolby Cinema screen was bad, this is ten times worse.

Visited last week and added pics of interior, some theaters and new IMAX section.

chalk it up to the unadvertised fact that auditorium 12 can actually playback a 7.1 surround sound mixed film, but ugh.. the AC unit which clicked off and on during ‘Tomorrowland’ was obnoxious as sin. The screen size is also on the small size.

just recently saw ‘Into the Woods’ here on the RPX screen – the 7.1 sound was decent not great – for a musical, that’s expected. As to the theater, not to keen with the huge RPX lettering just to the left and right of the screen (on the adjacent walls). The biggest flaw I noted was that some light from below the screen either from the wall or stair lighting is being projected back onto the screen which causes reflection thus ruining any scene in the movie that is dark or low lit. [Side comment: I wanted to belt the teenagers behind me during the movie who were making some really rude highly explicit comments during the movie – not cool]

rivest266, do you have an email address where we can reach you? I’ve sent corrections over the years regarding theatres in the Toronto area on your web site and they are never corrected or never hear back from you. I’ve sent them to the email address on the web site.

Official capacities are: IMAX (Aud.18):375 and RPX (Aud.19):309 which will bring the facility to 3,495 across all 19 screens.

No worries, I don’t know that their dimensions are correct, just providing information. There is no seperation between the IMAX and RPX (its essentially a seperate two screen theatre that shares a box office with the original 17 screens).

oh so close, well apparently the internet article I read was off by two feet in regards to the width and height of the IMAX-D screen – tsk, tsk, tsk. Am curious in checking this out the next time I visit family in Syracuse. How much of a separation is there between the IMAX auditorium and the RPX one? – I know that at AMC Tysons, since the IMAX-D and the ETX screen share a wall (or there’s a inner hallway between the two), there is very minor sound bleeding of low frequency bass I noted during ‘Man of Steel’

The press release from the mall has the IMAX screen at 72ft wide by 40ft tall and the RPX screen at 58ft wide by 31ft tall. Also, the release has the new theatre-wide capacity at 3,400. With the new screens comes yet another name in the long history for this theatre, as per Regal and Fandango this theatre is now the Destiny USA Stadium 19 IMAX & RPX.

Giles on June 15, 2013 at 11:17 pm

The IMAX-D screen is 70ft wide by 38ft tall.

Crews have completed major construction on the IMAX/RPX space directly adjacent to the existing theatre (but in a seperate space) and are preparing both theatres for Superman next Friday. The new space includesan IMAX Digital theatre (which will be designated Aud. 18), an RPX theatre (Aud. 19) and its own concession stand (these auditoriums are a fair distance from the original stand). These theatres will utilize the existing box office, which is only a short distance up a ramp from this space.

Per the Regal website and Fandango, this theatre has officially been renamed “Destiny USA Stadium 17”, reflecting the same name change as the shopping center the theatre resides in (Carousel Center was renamed Destiny USA last August).

Regal is still waiting for mall owner Pyramid to raise the roof on their section of space in the expansion. Until the roof work is completed the theatre’s expansion project will be on hold.

Giles on November 25, 2012 at 10:48 am

The standalone IMAX-Digital screen will be situated next to the Pole Position indoor race track on the third floor – will be curious in seeing how the height perspective of the screen itself will be integrated.

Regal recently announced a project to add both an RPX screen and an IMAX screen to this theatre, in the space closest to the existing theatre but within the nearby expansion building. These auditoriums will be accessible to the existing theatre via a walkway being constructed on the roof of the second floor of the existing mall. In order to accommodate the walkway, the box office is being reconstructed just to the left of its existing location. No timetable was provided for construction, however the expansion project is slated for a grand opening on August 2.

indeed a great place to kill time before your 4:15 train back to NYC. ..Well that is after you eat at Denny’s across from the Ramada.

Just in time for the the start of the theatre’s 21st year, Regal has completed converting the entire theatre to digital projection. The eight theatres that were converted first (1,2,4,5,8,10,13, and 14) are 3D capable, while the remaining theatres will remain 2D only. Theatre 14 (the original theatre converted) was completed prior to NCM’s deal with SONY, and as such is equipped with a different system than the rest of the complex (the exact make escapes me right now).

RLS Design Group’s website indicates that they were the firm that designed the theatre’s 2005 stadium retrofit/reduction to 17 screens and lobby renovations for Regal.

Ah, the classics. This ad was in the Syracuse Post-Standard on 10/12/91:

I noticed while attending a screening of “Bridge to Terabithia” earlier today that Regal has chosen 287 seat Theatre 14 to host this theatre’s digital projection system, which is scheduled to be operational for the March 30th release of “Meet the Robinsons”.
