One, if not the, largest theater in Brooklyn. Was built in 1987 as a 10-screen ‘plex and recently underwent renovation. Mostly mainstream fare, but has so many screens, it can afford the occasional indie/Woody Allen film every so often. Has a nice variety of films; usually something for everyone. Only game in town with recent neighborhood closings of popular theaters.

To think Brooklyn once had 200 theatres

This was originally intended to be built & operated by Loews Theatres not United Artists, anybody know what happened? –

Boxoffice Magazine January 1985 Theatre Construction Roundup

Bernard Myerson. president of Loews Theatres, and the Nakash brothers, owners of Jordache Enterprises, Inc., world famous jeans and apparel manufacturers, recently announced an agreement to build and operate a multi-million-dollar eight-auditorium theatre complex in the Sheepshead Bay area of Brooklyn, New York.

The project will be located off the Belt Parkway at Knapp Street on land already purchased for this purpose.

The site now includes a beach club which will be demolished. The luxury theatre will provide parking for approximately 1,000 cars with a multi-level parking structure, and is expected to open in December, 1985.

The theatre will be equipped with push-back seats and the most technically advanced projection and sound including 70mm and Dolby stereo.

Each auditorium will be fully draped and have a different color theme. The lobby will have as its focal point a giant hand-painted movie mural to be executed by famed Tampa muralist, Patrick Casey, and will depict stars whose fame has stood the test of time.

The theatre will also be designed to accommodate the handicapped. The architectural firm of Held and Rubin of East Meadow, Long Island, a firm that has designed a number of Loews' new theatre complexes, will prepare the plans with construction expected to begin in February.

This venture is consistant with Jordache’s policy decision to diversify its operations

I just want to say that most of the comments on here down playing this theater are very highly exaggerated. It is one on the nicest and largest theaters now in Brooklyn and very nicely kept and still new looking. Compared to sister theater UA Court Street, this theater looks liked it just opened yesterday. Although part of Regal Cinemas, its still operated as United Atrists Theaters. It contains an IMAX screen as well as an RPX screen. The concessions stand contains many items that most Regal Theaters in the area don’t have (except for the Regal E-Walk). Food items include cheesburgers, chicken sandwiches, boneless chicken, waffle fries, pizza, etc.. Sure, over the years we lost many great surrounding theaters due to this theater, but it does have character of its own and should be visited to see movies.

I should take some pictures of this theater the next time I go there. They recently changed some of the murals in the lobby and there are just no lobby pictures here. Maybe I’ll take one or 2 pics of the pretty bad imo 2nd floor (seriously it sucks. projection is kinda poor). I like this theater though. it’s not really “bad”, just not the best

Yes, Ben, please do that. Bright and clear and close-up where possible. Don’t forget to edit them before posting (cropping, lightening, centering, etc.) for best results.

The theatre isn’t that bad, since Kings Plaza closed the patrons attending is mixed. Some moviegoers talk during the film, used the cell phones and some people are theatre hopping. The management doesn’t seem to monitor the situation.

The theatre is better design them the UA Kaufman and UA Midway, All screens are good except screen 8 and screen 9. Screens 8 and 9 don’t have stadium seating and the screens are small.

The RPX screen does not have Dolby Atmos, only UA Court Street, Regal E-Walk and UA Kaufman RPX have ATMOS. They do have Auro 11.1, but not as many titles are released in that format.

Outside of Manhattan, it the only Baby IMAX screen in New York City.

They do have reserve seating in the RPX and IMAX screen only.

Since their is no compettion, I think if they get recliners, they might be one of the last to get it.

Sorry for not keeping my word on taking those pictures. The ones posted by ridethectrain are great. Thanks for doing a better job than I ever would.
