The sad part REGAL dosen’t do like AMC, Cineapolis and CIty Cinemas with reduced prices before NOON in Manhattan. Regal doses give reduced before NOON prices at E-Walk, guess they have to compete with the AMC Empire.

Got some technical info from Regal about this theater.

All auditoriums here are 7.1 audio.

Resolution-wise the RPX theater (#12) is 4K capable, the rest I deduce are all 2K. Auditoriums 5, 6, 10 and 12 are 3D capable as well.

The screens are all flat 1.85:1 aspect ratio. I find that super, super dumb. They’re all floating screens, so they don’t have any masking. Literally any scope movie at this theater will be letterboxed. It’s Landmark 57 all over again. 🤦‍♂️

Why couldn’t these geniuses put in scope floating screens with the same width? Most Hollywood movies are scope, not flat. A vast majority of moviegoers will have to deal with letterboxing here. I just don’t get it. This was completely avoidable. But what do I know, maybe people like seeing letterboxed movies.

Also got some screen widths in case anyone is interested:
1: 32'
2: 32'
3: 37'
4: 38'
5: 37'
6: 33'
7: 32'
8: 32'
9: 33'
10: 30'
11: 42'
12: 43'
13: 30'
14: 32'

digital3d, its because you np longer have theatre people designing and running theatres. They are all pencil pushing number crunchers looking at the bottom line. They don’t even know what Flat or Scope (1,85, 2.35) is. I don’t run digital often, thank God I still do 35 and 70MM, but when I see digital, everything is listed as 4.3 or 16.9. They all think in terms of TV, not theatres. Sad where the industry is heading.

at digtal3d, does this RPX audiorium have Dolby Atmos like the Regal E-Walk, Regal Court Street and Regal Kaufman Astoria locations. I hope they didn’t do AURO 11.1

I heard Regal has DTS X according to DTS.com What theatres in New York CIty has it.

@ridethectrain: According to Regal all auditoriums here are 7.1, including the RPX one. So no Atmos here at the moment. Don’t know about DTS.

@markp: I agree. It’s sad how a theater chain can spend millions on a brand new, state-of-the-art multiplex and then just make all 14 screens flat floating screens. You’re right, they probably just looked at how to maximize height and didn’t think about how the actual projection would look when everything is finished.

digital3d, in my 43 as a projectionist I have seen a lot of crazy things, but none as much as in the past 5 to 10 years. I just don’t get where the industry is heading.

Would have been cool if they named it Regal Delancey.
