Theater 11 is now a RPX screen.

The ushers are better now than stated back in 2006. While they might turn on the house lights to clean during the credits, then won’t usually turn them on if people are still in the theater watching. Unlike the UA Sheepshead Bay’s ushers, Court Street’s ushers are very courteous. Sheepshead Bay doesn’t care if people are still watching the credits and usually downright refuse to shut off the lights to wait until the movie us over!

Multiplex popcorn can be hit or miss, depends on how they make it. I always like to see them popping it right in front of me, otherwise who knows how long its been sitting around.

I came here earlier to see “Your Name” and I got popcorn. The popcorn was basically crumbs! Other than that this theater is fine.

The auditoriums are located on the following levels: Sub Level(Basement)-auditoriums #1-3, Third Floor-auditoriums #4-5, Fifth Floor- auditoriums #6-8, Seventh Floor- auditoriums #9-10, Ninth Floor- auditorium #11, Eleventh Floor- auditorium #12.

Concessions are on the main level and fifth floor, UA also put one on the third level when they took over in the Summer of 2001 although I don’t think they used it very much. UA also added all of the arcade games on the third level as well, Regal never had them there originally.

Did a bit of research – the UA 10-K Annual Report released in 2002 (just around the time Anschutz was forming Regal Entertainment) indicates that “during Fiscal 2001, we assumed four sites in New York City from another theatre operator”, and also that they completed a fifth site from “another theatre operator”. (Staten Island I assume? From the pictures it looks Regalish to me)

Whether that was related to the formation of Regal Entertainment, I don’t know, but UA clearly got these theatres before they ceased to exist.

It did open as a Regal but the switch to United Artists in 2001 came as part of the merger of the two. After the Chapter 11 filing by Regal, the new restructured company was a new entity. Similarly, the Loews Theatres that emerged after their Sony period was a very different mix of owners and even more convoluted when they merged with Cineplex Odeon.

So then you’re confirming that this was in fact opened as a Regal Cinema and then renamed to UA after the fact. Essentially, this was never actually operated by United Artists, but always by Regal Cinemas or Regal Entertainment.

Scottneff, Regal bought UA and started using that name in all their New York locations for a while.

From the wayback machine at Regal’s website I found this. Mt question is: So if Regal built it, did they just rename it UA when they formed Regal Entertainment or did UA buy it from Regal sometimebetween 2000 and 2002?

July 12, 2000- REGAL CINEMAS, INC. announces the GRAND OPENING of two new state-of-the art movie complexes, the BATTERY PARK 16 and the COURT STREET 12, marking their first foray into the New York City market. These two new cinemas join Regal’s recently opened COLUMBIA PARK 12 located in North Bergen, New Jersey. Both the Battery Park and Brooklyn Theaters will celebrate their openings with three days of festivities and community events.

There was a Spanish language AMOR theatre (aka Nuevo Amor) operating at 102 Court Street in the sixties.

They call these idiots the “Broom Line”. And I agree, But thats management.

Puffy, my only complaint about this theater is that the ushers turn the house lights on as soon as the end credits start, in order to get the house cleaned for the next show. There are usually about 4 ushers who barge in, talking and sweeping, even under my feet while I am still sitting there!

As one who always stays and reads the credits to the very end, this is very disconcerting and annoying.

I wish the candy counter personnel were half as speedy.

The address is 106 Court Street.
I am the projectionist for this theatre.

That is a Cool photo KenRoe. I get to see what my theatre looks like at last. I would look for more theatres to add if it wasn’t such a hassle getting them to appear.

A photograph of the United Artist’s Court Street Stadium 12 which I took in June 2006:

Despite being merely six years old, the theatres look shabby and poorly maintained.
