I’m looking for information about a movie theater on Sands Street in Brooklyn circa 1946 called Golds or Goldies. Does anyone know of a theater in this location at that time?

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.

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.

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