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!!!

I’m not familiar with this region, is it an area habited by Koreans. If so, are they not entitled to enjoy movies?

If things are that bad, make your displeasure known with your wallet and just not go there and “complain” to AMC.

Not sure why you insist on doing it here, where realistically how much good is it doing other than taking up space here. Maybe Facebook where there are more people in your region?

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.

As I’ve stated in the past, AMC is always very forthcoming and cooperative with guest questions, either on site or via their various social media outlets.

Not Fresh Meadows and when did the prices start ending in 9’s.

Why do you need to fax them? You have a computer. Whenever I’ve not gotten credit for a movie on my Stubs account for whatever reason, I’ve taken a photo of my ticket stub and then emailed the photo and my information to the AMC Stubs website and it’s cleared up in a day or two.

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.

I concur with Chuck. I’ve always had great email exchanges with AMC on various complex issues and had them dealt with to my satisfaction.

Oh and please watch the double posts as well. I’m pretty sure you can go back and delete the extra one.

Ooh at the last moment they’ve added a Korean film “Secretly and Gently”.

When will this place finally shut its doors? After Despicable Me 2 came in we did not get Grown Ups 2 or Pacific Rim. Both went to our sister theater in Fresh Meadows. This week there are 4 pictures opening in over a 1000 theaters, all will be in Fresh Meadows and we get 2 of their rejects again. I may stop going to AMC theaters. What’s the point of a stubs card when your theater gets nada new movies. Maybe it can become another weight watching joint or fast food chain. Maybe AMC can redo the theater like Fresh Meadows and cut the seating capacity down to 26 seats per screen.

Love this chain, go to Fresh Meadows Wednesday and the escalator is still out. How often does it run? Does it have a special schedule and you book it in advance? Today go to Bay Terrace for 9:15 am showing of Monsters University (a rare wide opening here) and the showing is cancelled, projection problems. I am disgusted with AMC.
