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.

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.

Nicholas Hirshon reports in today’s NY Daily News: “Prepare for a new era at the Shops at Atlas Park. ATCO Properties & Management, which has run the Glendale mall since it opened in 2006, said last week it will step aside Feb. 19 as the center’s operator and leasing agent. ATCO’s French lenders, Calyon and Societe Generale, will choose the new managers, said Damon Hemmerdinger, the mall’s development director.”

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.
