The eight-screen theatre features plush all-stadium seating in large auditoriums. It has a state-of-the art sound system and a fabulous circular lobby decorated with hand painted murals.

This is the first new theater to open in this general area in many years, and is the first nearby competition the Ridgewood Theater nearby has had since the closure of all the other large palaces in the area in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

The opening of the Atlas 8 in May 2006, coincided with the opening of the huge shopping center that has opened up on the site of the old Atlas Terminal in Glendale.

On my second trip to this struggling mall on a recent overcast day, I tried to see “Righteous Kill,” but the theater changed the times for weekday shows. Just as well: matinee and senior prices are high. Saw it instead at the nondescript (but very comfortable) Jamaica Multiplex for two bucks less.

P.S.: Got a couple of book & DVD bargains at Borders, which made the original trip worthwhile…

Good for you, Brooklyn Jim. I’m glad you survived the Jamaica Multiplex at s/e corner of Jamaica and Parsons. Glad it was comfortable. Glad of your book & DVD bargains at Borders, and that it made your trip worthwhile.

It reads like Atlas Park has some serious upscale snob and overpricing problems, which could lead to its undoing.

And now to respond to Lost Memory’s wonderful post of Jul 6, 2006 at 5:06pm, at the top of this page :

Well it sounds like the stores are having more trouble than the theater or the restaurants in there….. “People come to see a movie and to eat, and bypass the stores”.
Well one kiss of death is that you have to pay for parking. That right away shuts out “just lookers”, who often leave with buying something.

I am sure the economy didn’t help the already struggling Atlas Park mall. Personally, the idea was a little “high end” for the area.

This area is very middle class most of the stores are for the upper east side of NYC, the Hamptons ,or Beverly Hills.Except for Regal and Border’s book store I will have no reason to go there

I wonder if they are non-union projectionists.Can they get away with that in New York like they do down South in all these right to work states. Local 629.

I just passed this theater at the mall yesterday and could not believe that in Queens there is a cinema charging $13 admission, $17 for 3D. I think the $13 general admission (non 3D) is the most I’ve seen in all of New York, higher than even Manhattan. In Boston recently I saw $12.50 at the AMC Boston Commons cinema.

With prices like that, the theater will probably go down with the rest of this mall. The place is like a ghost town.
