Landmark at 57 West

Located on W. 57th Street between 11th Avenue and 12th Avenue in the Hell’s Kitchen (now known as Clinton) district. The Landmark at 57 West was opened by Landmark Theatres on September 15, 2017. Opening movies included “Mother” and “Manolo:The Man Who Made Shoes for Lizards”. It is equipped with laser projection and wall to wall screens. Plush leather chairs & recliners. There is a full bar. There are two parking garages adjacent to the theatre.

It was closed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was announced in August 2020 that the closure would be permanent.

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)

Amazon might buy this theater and others if it acquires landmark from Mark Cuban .

Bigjoe59- when did you last go here, the attendance has definitely picked up from the very slow first few months, though I’d still say it tends to be on the lighter side. Interestingly, it looks like basically all shows of The Irishman this weekend have sold out, I don’t think I have really seen sell outs here before other than special events.

This location will not reopen, as Landmark and the landlord could not agree on a lease renegotiation.
