AMC Loews Village 7

Loews opened this multi-level complex in 1991 on the site of a rather ornate one-story parking garage that had been built in 1868 as headquarters for the NYC Department of Public Charities and Corrections. With funkier offerings at other East Village theaters such as the Village East and Cinema Village, Loews opened this multiplex with more mainstream fare in mind for a gentrifying neighborhood.

The seven auditoriums are scattered on multiple levels, with large rooms in the cellar, First and third floor (the second floor skipped for lobby space, restrooms and a projection room) and two smaller rooms apiece on the fifth and sixth floors. The seating is conventional, rather than the stadium-style that would come into vogue in the late 1990’s.

Any additional information on this theater’s facilities would be greatly appreciated.

This theater showed the original Star Wars in 1991 in association with the release of the Star Wars Nintendo game. My dad took me to the early morning screening and it was the first time I was able to see it on the big screen. It was definitely shown in a THX theater and the entire THX WOW! trailer was shown before the film. To date, it remains the best presentation I’ve ever seen of the film.

They keep advertising the new AMC reclining seats that are supposed to be installed here at other AMC Theatres, does anyone here know if they have finished yet?

@theatrefan, the new theater renovations and recliners are set to be finished by around February 2016, they were originally supposed to be done by around now.

Currently they are renovating 4 auditoriums and have 3 open, then once the 4 are finished they’ll open them and renovate the 3.

Thanks Brianhs, they are also doing the Bay Terrace renovations at the same time. I wonder if the Orpheum will get a redo as well?

i saw Trumbo here yesterday. i greatly enjoyed the film but the theater is in complete disarray due to the renovations. it looks like Super Storm Sandy hit the theater.

also movie tickets are already wayyyyyyyyy to expensive. so by putting in the reclining seats each theater’s capacity is cut in half and the only the only they way can break even is by jacking up an already was to expensive movie ticket.

This whole emphasis on outrageous seating boggles the mind. Give me a clean environment, a good movie and reasonable prices. Do I really need a recliner to watch an hour and a half movie? Don’t even have one at home to watch TV.

Correction? Is this theater is gonna be modernize by AMC

I love the new theater, I’ve seen Trumbo and Good Dino there and they made the screen sizes much bigger. Also when I went ticket prices were same as always before the renovation, about 15 dollars. Also the bathrooms are so nice now, they used to be awful before. Personally, this is one of my favorite theaters now post-renovation.

The only problem I found if someone a few rows don’t relcine, and I recline, heads get in the way. The slope should of been done better.
