AMC did the same renovations at the Mountainside Theatre in New Jersey. I worked on that one, and as we finished one phase of work, the contractors would shift to this location.

So AMC is going to screw up the Lincoln Square more than they have already.

To amcbayplaza – what you said makes sense about the closure of the Loews American in Parkchester, but the borough is desperately in need of another theatre, not just one that will play commercial features, but one that will also offer independent and art films. Though the audience for this may be small, the indie film industry is picking up steam, and right now six of the eight films nominated for Best Picture by the Academy Awards are not playing in either Bronx theatre, the first time that a majority of nominated films have not played in the borough. I am hoping that this will change in the weeks to come, and at least a couple of them will be booked.

But if AMC does re-open the Whitestone, the chances of independent and art movies opening there will be slim to none. A theatre independent of the major chains is badly needed.

Despite a goodly number of theaters on Long Island it’s been tough to find venues where these play. There are basically only two art houses; one with three screens the other with one. So films move in and out fast. They announced that the total revenue for the majority of the Oscar nominated films was less than what a big block buster would achieve. Duh. If it isn’t booked into a theater it’s not going to make money.

Heard this theater just installed recliners in all auditoriums and re did the concession areas. Has anybody been there lately ??? Concourse Plaza remains closed to due the Legionnaries plague leaving this as the only theater for Bronx movie goers…

Was here today to see “Bridge Of Spies” in auditorium #9 today, the house lights were on during the entire movie, I did let the employees know at the start of the film, but it never got fixed. Also they were showing a scope film on a flat screen with absolutely no masking on the top and bottom. I did get a pass for my troubles, but it actually means I have to go back to another AMC Theatre, I wish they would give out Regal passes instead, LOL.

Please update, the three additional screens which theatres 2, 3 and 7 were split in half. General Cinema made those theatres half the size. The only thing AMC did, a couple of years ago, they put recliners the theatre. The seating capacity when the theatre open was theatre 1. 472 with THX, 2 and 3 were 450, 4 was 293, 5 and 6 was 233, 7 was 450, 8 was 458 and 9 and 10 were 182. When General Cinema destroyed theatres 2, 3 and 7 to add more screens, 2 had 157, 3 was 150, 7 was 150. Theatres 11 were 107 and 12 and 13 122. To reach the new screens, their were short hallways to enter.

With the theatre being very busy, General Cinema did the expansion in the early 1990s.

The new capacity with the recliners are: 1. 186 2. 84 3. 79 4. 113 5. 113 6. 113 7. 84 8. 186 9. 77 10. 77 11. 37 12. 47 13. 44
