MarkNYLA—You are so correct, recliners are very awkward with stadium seating. Unless you sit in the first few rows going upward, everything beyond that makes for awkward viewing since you need to goose neck, leaning forward.

I prefer recliners for older theaters such as Morristown. The only screen in Rockaway that has recliners is the Dolby theater which from what i hear has excellent projection along with the recliners that vibrate.

They just completed recliner installation at Cross County, Yonkers, NY and the result is excellent by using 5 inch risers every few rows. This was a non stadium seated theater.

To echo bigjoe, who the hell is going all the way to the West Side Highway to see a movie for $18.50, with no bargain matinee prices, that they can see anywhere else in town for half the price…?

And no masking, to boot…!

Easy. The hundreds of thousands of us who live in Hudson Yards, Hells kitchen and Lincoln Center who don’t want to go to The Village to see a movie when The Empire, 34th Street, and Regal E-walk are all showing the same ten super hero comic movies on every screen.

While I agree that the tickets are expensive, the people that theater is going to attract are those who paid multi-million dollars for their apartments or are renting apartments for $5000 a month. I don’t think they’re too worried about an $18.50 movie ticket. Besides, the entire place has only 558 seats. The theaters are 19, 22, 25, 34, 48, 75, 164 and 171 seats. Shouldn’t be too hard to fill.

The no masking is annoying (even if Kips Bay and some other theaters are the same), but I love this theater otherwise. Great seating, projection (this is the highlight every screen is laser projection and looks noticeably better), sound, and concessions menu. I also think their film selection has improved now with the closing of Lincoln Plaza and the Sunshine.

But there must be huge attendance issues, probably cause of location (though personally I don’t mind the walk from the Carnegie Hall subway stop) or marketing. I’ve been there around 7 times now and never had a near full screening and twice I was the only person there.

Is it the best indie multiplex ever? The Angelika is showing its age and IFC Center is struggling…

Nice place but avoid screen #6 for subtitled movies. Only 3 rows, large screen which means you have a choice: keep your head up and watch the movie or crank your head down and read subtitles. Impossible to do both. Could not enjoy the movie (Bye, Bye, Germany)
