Theater 1 appears to be the big seating screen with 105. I’d swear screens 1 & 6 used to have the same seating capacity before the renovation.

Actually now per AMC’s website the 6th screen is move over of The Hatefull Eight.

Theater reopens tomorrow evening. Norm of the North opens there. There are 2 rejects from Fresh Meadows,Concussion and Joy plus 3 films that played here before, Brooklyn, Spotlight and the Big Short, perfect I guess after the Academy Award nominations. It looks per Fandango’s listing that only 5 screens are playing at the moment. The films have later showings during the week, more on par with the summer and holidays. I think their schedules will resemble last year, smaller releases and older films. It will look more packed though.

After writing the above the theater is closed to January 15 for more renovations they (AMC) know we will love.

They’ve redone theaters 4 to 6 and I’ve been in 6 to see Alvin and the Chipmunks and the Big Shirt. Theater 6 now sits 98 (it used to list 300 capacity) and I counted the smaller screens which have only 46 seats now as opposed to I think it was 140. These screens have got to be the smallest capacity in Queens. I think with the limited seating they will continue on their merry way of the last few years of opening films with limited interest on the bigger screens and still have moveovers from Fresh Meadows on the small. I could be wrong I hope.

As of today Monday October 19, only theaters 1, 2 & 3 are open. Screens 4 to 6 are closed for conversion to the leather laid back seats that AMC has in Fresh Meadows and are going into Roosevelt Field. This half of the theater should be finished by December when 1 to 3 will close for the same period and all work is expected to be done by February. This per their afternoon manager who was there when I went to the 1 PM showing of Bridge of Spies (highly recommended). They got rid of the Martian and Hotel Transylvania which are also in Fresh Meadows and the Intern. Outside of Bridge of Spies the other 2 open screens are playing moveovers from Fresh Meadows, the Walk, Black Mass and The Perfect Man. I wonder if we will get more first run films now (I would think so). Will we still get moveovers. While Fresh Meadows was renovating they still had new films open, albeit fewer. Bay Terrace was more active at the time.

The comments are based on Fandango’s listings for this theater as of Friday July 24th (Inside Out). The pricing I listed is for Fresh Meadows, not Bay Terrace. I was pointing out how outrageous the prices are for sister complex Fresh Meadows where everything goes and where they max out the 3D showings. The non chain theaters around say Douglaston, Flushing, even Glen Cove usually only show 1 or 2 showings a day of films in 3D with the rest normal.

Large Korean population in Flushing. Bayside is the closest town with a functioning theater albeit one which has been the subject of numerous complaints on this site.

I’m not against the Korean films, it’s the lack of regular ones. Mostly we get outside a few in their first week, the older films when they are kicked out of the fancier sister theater in Fresh Meadows. To top it off they brought Inside Out back in its 6th weekend, on 2 screens!!!

No new films except a Korean one the last 2 weeks and ripoff Fresh Meadows getting everything. A couple of weeks ago they lowered the prices on pre noontime showings to $5.49/ Fresh Meadows has raised nighttime to $16.99 + $4 for 3D (almost every showing is always in 3D) to $20.99.

For the first time in the 17 Christmas seasons I have lived here we are not getting any new releases for the season. Into the Woods and Unbroken, the final wide releases of 2014 are also opening in Fresh Meadows which got Annie, Night at the Museum and The Hobbit this past weekend. Maybe we will join the Sunnyside on January 4 and close also. At least they got last week’s openers. Even the Cinemart which I passed by today is advertising a first run, American Sniper coming in January 16. We used to get every musical (except for “Rent”) but both over there at the sister. Maybe we’ll become a T.J.Maxx like the American in Parkchester, the Barnes and Nobles by St. John'’s and the Borders at the Atlas mall.

Again went here today with my wife to go to the 12:15 showing of “Philomena” (amazing 3 new films here this week) and that showing and the one following were cancelled for technical difficulties; saw it in Malverne instead. The screen would be supposedly ready for the more expensive after 5 pm showings. Theater had 13 busses of school kids there for “Frozen” (our taxpayer dollars at work). Was “Philomena” cancelled to accomodate these children for overcrowding of “Frozen”?The hand dryers in the bathroom also have not worked in months. Also every time one is about to cross the $100 rewards mark on the AMC Stubs card whether you are at Bay terrace or Fresh Meadows the system is always down. I have to fax copies of ticket stubs to AMC to get credit for whatever I attended.

Outside the fact that we are selling tickets for the new Hunger Games movie we have not had a new wide opening release (over 1000 screens) since “Don Jon” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” (also in Fresh Meadows). We are getting basically the usual old Fresh Meadows rejects, Korean pictures and the occasional art house film. This week 3 more new films open in Fresh Meadows including the smaller release “The Fifth Estate” and we get nothing of course. They don’t even have “Fifth Estate” with any scheduled bargain before 11:55 am showings. And if we do get a wide release it usually is also in Fresh Meadows so they can get rid of it first when grosses are dropping but we will still have it. I complain a lot but wonder does anyone know what the story is on this place. Will it ever close? Will it ever be converted to new seats which was supposedly postponed from this year’s late summer?

What extra one. I spoke to the AMC headquarters once and they said only small pictures play at our one. Really what about everything through last year and the few big ones we shared when they were new with Fresh Meadows when they opened (Despicable Me 2, Monsters University, Hangover, Man of Steel, World War Z). Around this neck of the woods it’s called Cinemart 2.
