News About This Theater

Regal E-Walk Stadium 13 & RPX

A symbol of the ‘new’ Times Square (built roughly on the same site of a definitive symbol of the old Times Square - the former 24-hour porn grindhouse, the Harem Theatre), this 13-screen, all-stadium seating megaplex (part of the larger E-Walk entertainment complex), replete with retro-Art Deco style touches, murals, and enough neon to illuminate 50 pizza parlors, opened its doors on November 12, 1999.

Initially it had little neighborhood competition - the faded Criterion Center seven-screen multiplex at Broadway and 45th; the white elephant Loews State Theatre on the basement floor of the Virgin Megastore, one block north of the Criterion; and the single auditorium Loews Astor Plaza Theatre on 44th Street, west of Broadway - but, by April of 2000, with those aforementioned theatres either closed, facing increasing irrelevancy, or facing attendance drops of several fractions, the Loews 42nd Street E-Walk found itself competing with a even bigger movie (and crowd) magnet across the street: AMC’s first foray into the NYC film marketplace, the Empire 25.

Despite a battle to fill their combined 38 screens with product, both theatres have succeeded in making Times Square arguably the strongest filmgoing destination it’s ever been.

AMC acquired this theatre, along with the rest of the Loews Cineplex chain, in January 2006. As a condition of approving the merger, the state and federal governments required Loews and AMC to sell ten theatres, including this one.

It became a Regal cinema on September 15, 2006.

Great news for bankrupt Cineworld. I think this was a smart move. AMC has too many screens for today’s market and desperately need some cleaning up across the street.

As of Mid-June 2023, construction has indeed resumed. Now, early in early July 2023, its been a slow progression, but its getting there.

RPX just opened with Mission Impossible. New seating capacity is 359 seats. Very disappointed, the removed the recliners, seating increased by 192 seats. Since AMC is more popular with Dolby Cinema and Prime, most patrons attend them over RPX Atmos in the pass.

The increase seating doesn’t make sense since it’s competitor the AMC Empire 25 had Dolby Cinema with Atmos, Prime and IMAX Laser, most patrons go to AMC over RPX. Personally, I’ll do RPX at E-Walk because it has Atmos Sound.

Every time I went there with the recliners in RPX, the attendance was always more across the street. If RPX was the only location in the area, then more seats would make sense.

Did they put regular seats back?

Very different RPX screen. I love it. Looks like they have masking too

August 7, 2023 update: I just uploaded a bunch of pictures of the new RPX auditorium, didn’t see a film today but took a peak inside. Theatre 12 is still closed, eventually the new 4DX House. The carpeting was installed in the hallway by theatres 8-10 section. Lower Level is still a construction zone.

The RPX seats look to narrow, I don’t think it was necessary to increase the capacity since AMC Dolby Cinema alway did much more business during playdating with RPX Atmos films.

The attendance is still more busier at the AMC Empire 25 over E-Walk even though the Empire seats are outdated. For example, I saw Sound of Freedom at 3:40PM at E-Walk only 3 customers while across the street at the AMC Empire 3:45PM show today had 27 people attending.
