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,.

Unpopular opinion but I liked it better when there was no reserved seating. Me just being able to show up somewhat early and just find a seat I liked is much better to me. However I did notice they stopped turning on lights before the credits were over (thank god). However I notice this theater pillarboxes a ton of their films.

Years ago on busy movies ushers have checked tickets years ago their

digital3d on June 28, 2018 at 4:45 pm

The crowds at this particular location really have trouble sitting in their assigned seats. They even had employees check tickets at the door which I had never seen at any other location before.

Theater hopping has been very common there for years. That’s changing now as all the screens have reserved seating.

ridethectrain on June 17, 2018 at 3:11 pm

Reserved seating being expanded to all screens at this location. More people not sitting in their assign seats.

In my last couple of visits, their keeping those flood lights off during the credits. When my letters got to the coporate office, they got the message

Send your complains to the corporate level which will resolve any valid movie goer issues. The manager and assistants cannot be trusted to fix these problems…they are cut from the same cloth as their staff…

BenPaz on December 13, 2017 at 7:32 pm

Yeah man thats so true. I saw the disaster artist last friday and the lights were on. THEY DIDN’T KNOW THERE WAS A POST CREDITS SCENE. So here I am watching this scene with the light turned on barely being able to see it.

Damn, man, you hit on one of my major pet peeves. It really kills the mood of the movie to be blasted with house lights while the credits are still rolling. Speak to the manager but who knows if it’ll do any good…

thehorror13 on November 11, 2017 at 11:31 pm

The UA Sheepshead Bay’s ushers are not very courteous. Sheepshead Bay ushers don’t care if people are still watching the credits and usually downright refuse to shut off the lights to wait until the movie is over. They hustle in and turn on those damn bright lights to clean the theater. It should be a rule that if any customers are still in the theater watching the credits roll, the ushers must wait till it’s all over to clean the theater! No exceptions!

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.

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.

BenPaz on May 6, 2017 at 9:29 pm

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

thehorror13 on April 29, 2017 at 7:21 pm

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.

BenPaz on March 3, 2017 at 4:48 pm

@Kris I wish they still did that :(

They stopped a year or two back iirc

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

Yes at the extreme right of the stairs

robboehm on September 29, 2014 at 6:45 pm

Looking at the stair is there a handicap entrance?

RobertR on September 29, 2014 at 7:47 am

To think Brooklyn once had 200 theatres

DJM78 on January 6, 2012 at 6:43 pm

This theatre has no charm. It lacks class and I almost never go there.

Kris, I noticed that, too, the last (and only) time I was here in 2009 to see “Avatar” in the room that was converted to IMAX. I agree with your take… nothing remarkable about the building or rooms – standard boilerplate modern multiplex – but the painted doors are a nice touch of showmanship in a day when that seems to have all but disappeared. And it doesn’t matter that the paintings are a bit amateurish – that may even lend to their charm.

Kris on June 20, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Though this theater is generally nothing remarkable, one thing I’ve come to appreciate is the how the staff paints the front doors for big “event” movies. I think they’ve been doing this for about two years now; I remember the glass doors displaying the logo for one of the Twilight movies, they decorated them with logos and characters for Toy Story 3, and over the weekend I noticed the doors were done up for Transformers 3. The outer doors had the Transformers logo (which you can kind of see in the photo I took) while the inner doors had some renderings of characters like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (I didn’t get a chance to take pictures of those, unfortunately).

The last time I was in a Brooklyn movie theatre was at the UA Sheepshead approximately 10 years ago. When I was a kid there werec so many theaters in Brooklyn .Now there are probably less than 10 .

Astyanax on June 24, 2010 at 1:06 pm

The UA Sheepshead Bay 14 is a place to see a movie, but not necessarily the place to enjoy the movie. The expansion and upgrade about 8 years ago only made matters worse. I share Gringe’s memories of the Century’s Brooklyn theaters with the exception of the Kings Plaza hodge-podge.
