At one time, this theater was a 10-screen multiplex, operated by General Cinema. At its opening in 1989, it had 3,419 seats. Later purchased and operated by AMC and three more screens were added. Located in a busy shopping center not too far from Yankee Stadium.

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

C mon mhvbear, now why in the world AMC want to screw up Lincoln Square 13 already, AMC had a movie theater feud against Loews Cineplex. Loews Cineplex didn’t like AMC taking credit from other theaters chains like General Cinema and other chains. AMC tried their best by giving the people free movies, better popcorn and a new AMC reclining seats on every theaters,AMC tooked over the General Cinema movie theater operations and they agree with AMC by taking General Cinema operation and the AMC owned the Bay Plaza movie theater by fixing the theater up in late May June, july, August and September FYI AMC will more likely convert the fromer Whitestone Multiplex theater 14 into a newer AMC Whitestone 14 with IMAX but the new theater will have recliners reserving seating, freestyle soda machine and a stadium seating, the new theater will not look like the whitestone Multiplex theater 14 version , AMC are dang sure gonna open there theater version at the Paragon outlet mall project whitestone Multiplex theater 14 site.

The fact about it is AMC will raise the price to $7.00 again next year with their bay plaza 13 due to the fact their bay plaza 13 was remodeled, that is why the Loews American Theater lost businesses because of poor films projection with the movies in parkchester in last year. The reason they gonna raise up the price here because people are always go to AMC in Bay Plaza more than the Whitestone Multiplex, Loews American Theater and Concourse plaza and I go to the movie in Bay Plaza to enjoying new AMC red reserving seating and I just brought a large popcorn and saw the Hunger game the mockingjay at the same time.

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.

I doubt AMC Bay Plaza 13 and Concourse Plaza mulitplex 10 is more likey to stay open in the near future . There is no way that 2 Bronx ,movie theater cannot leave the bronx.

hdtv267 They did not say they gonna close two movie theater in the bronx, They said they gonna keep two movie theater open according to the news article on the new york times.

The Bronx have two movie theater left. They need to open another theater in another location in the Bronx. National Amusement said they gonna open their theater at Kingsbridge Amroy but the plans were cancel but they decided to build a ice rinks.

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.
