UA Sheepshead Bay Stadium 14

One, if not the, largest theater in Brooklyn. United Artists The Movies Sheepshead Bay was opened May 20, 1987 as a 9-screen ‘plex with 3,540 seats. On June 7, 2002 it was expanded to 14 screens. It later underwent renovation and the seating capacity was been reduced to 3,329. IMAX was added on November 7, 2008 and around 2010 RPX was added. 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.

My recent visit when I saw the Equilizer they turn the flood lights on during the credits. I yelled at the manager. He dosen’t care. I reported him to Regal.

Stay out of theatre 8 and 9, those screen do pillarbox at the top of the screen when in scope. Look at fandango, they say the screen number or the Regal app, if you see the seat map with the aisle in the midgle, it 8 or 9. Mostly, the films that are about to be dropped go in their, with the exception of Blindspotting last week. I saw that film at the Alamo Drafthouse, they respect the paying public,.

Stay away from this theatre, ushers and security guard dosen’t care about the patrons reading the credits. The usher put on the flood lights in theatre 5. The usher and the security guard very rude. A customer was looking for something they lost, instead of waiting for the end credits to end, they could do it know. I even flip the switch to turn the flood lights off, the secuity guard came and he didn’t he give a crap.

It was a group 17 that came in looking for the seats after the trailers started and rushing to leave and one patron lost something. Instead of waiting until the credits are over, they needed to find it fast to get on their rented charter bus.

I’ve complained to Regal a number of times, but the GM at Sheepshead Bay dosen’t care about the people that want to stay for the end of the film. Other Regal establishments in Manhattan are run a lot better.

Thease ushers need to visit Alamo Drafthouse and see a real movie theatre is run. Ufortately, Cold Pursuit wasn’t playing in Downtown Brooklyn. That my prefered movie theatre in Brooklyn, followed the Nitehawk Propsect Park.

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/cineworld-group-and-imax-expand-partnership-with-agreement-for-15-new-imax-with-laser-systems-in-regal-theatres-300890229.html This press release says the imax here is being upgraded to laser. I personally think this one doesn’t really need a laser, but that’s just me.

This theatre opened on May 20, 1987 as a nine plex. It wasn’t 10 screens when it opened, please correct. When the theatre opened, it had 4 screens Dolby Stereo and 1 70MM. In the 1980, United Artists was very cheap in putting Dolby Stereo in their theatres. Half would be MONO. In 1999, theatres 5 and 6 got Ultra Stereo. The location finally got all digital sound in 2002. Sometime in late 2000, United Artists expanded the complex to 14 screens with stadium seating in 12 of the 14 screens. UA closed off sections of theatres 1 to 9 between 2000 and 2002. Each screen lost about 100 seats. Theatres 10 to 14 was added to the complex, with theatres 13 and 14 on the 2nd floor. UA did not make theatres 8 and 9 stadium seating due to the theatres very narrow. The work was completed in the summer of 2002 with a new parking garage next to the theatre. Also the address is 3907 Shore Parkway, that were the original entrance was. Once the work was completed to 14 screens, the entrance is now on Harkness Avenue side.

Please update the history of the theatre. IMAX was added in 2008 and sometime in 2010 or 2011 RPX.
