The Atrium is one of the better “plex. The theaters are somewhat larger than average, and (surprise) it is also fairly clean.There is no sticky stuff on the floor, and the staff is friendly and cheerful. It is not the ST. George paramount, but it is a decent plsce to catch a movie if you are in Staten Island.

i visited today and i must say renovations made are impressive. the rest rooms are now on the ground floor, you no longer have to climb a steep staircase to get to them, and the individual theatres and sound are much improved. the nachos were a bit salty however.

The original use of this building was as an A&P grocery store. After that closed, it was an indoor flea market for a while.

The indoor flea market was called Four Bridges.

Co-owner Greg Scarolo was interviewed in the NY Daily News on 2/22/09. noting that he and a brother took over the theatre six years ago after the previous owner went bust: “He wasn’t doing well because another UA theatre had opened, so this one was vacant. My family owned the real estate where the theatre sits. We had several offers from other theatre owners who wanted to take it. But my brother and I always liked the idea of operating a theatre, and we felt that if this was such a great opportunity, why not try it. We did and it worked out fantastic…Business today is better than it has been. Last year was a good year. In 2008, we were up 10% versus ‘07. And we’re just coming off our best January ever. There are several factors. We’ve made structural changes to our site. We’ve updated our theatres, ADDED TWO AUDITORIUMS. We were 10 screens. WE’RE AT 12 NOW. We’ve also added stadium-style seating and put in risers so you don’t get the person’s head in front of you. We’ve updated our lobby and concession area and are adding new ticketing terminals. It’s been a three-year process. We’re at the final stage now…Customers seem quite happy. Everybody wants to go to the new theatre now we are the new boys on the market. The additions came to increase demand. When things are good, we’re able to put back into the business…Competing with huge chains like UA can be difficult. They have deeper pockets. They’re going to be on the forefront of upgrades. But we’re able to cater more to our customers. When people are looking for a special event, they’re going to deal with us directly. If they wanted to deal with Regal/UA, they’ve got to call Tennessee…We’ve increased business for the past five years. I expect business to continue to increase. Going to the theatre is still a relatively cheap form of entertainment. There doesn’t seem to be anyplace else where a family of four can go out for $40 and kill two or three hours during the day. And as far as dates are concerned, it’s still a hell of a lot cheaper than a night out on the town or going to dinner.”

I’ve been to this theater once or twice. There is nothing particularly memorable about it other than it having some of the smallest auditoriums that I have ever seen.
