AMC 34th Street 14

This 14-screen megaplex was constructed during the building, or overbuilding, of mega-plexes that took place in Manhattan in the late-1990’s into 2000. It was opened on November 2, 2001 with a total seating capacity of 2,860.

Located only eight blocks from the much higher profile W. 42nd Street Loews E-Walk, the 34th Street mega-plex is somewhat off-the-beaten track between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue.

When both theaters were Loews houses, much, if not all, of the fare was day and date with the E-Walk. It was refurbished with recliner seats in March 2020 and the seating capacity was reduced to 803 in 9-screens. By March 2021 all 14 screens were operating with a total seating capacity of 1,235.

  1. Bedbug bites last summer. Saw two movies here that day: Top Gun in 9 and Jurassic in IMAX. Don’t know in which one I was bitten but it hardly matters - the critters are mobile. Haven’t been back since.
  2. Nobody went here when it first opened. Now it might be more ghetto than the Empire. I have felt unsafe here. It now attracts a particularly rude and rowdy crowd.
  3. Since the renovation, theaters 1, 10 and 14 no longer have masking. Last time I checked, 4, 5, 9, 11 and 12 still had masking. Don’t know about 2, 3, 6 or 7. Might go back soon wearing minimal clothing that I can throw away to avoid bringing critters home. Was also bitten at the Empire in number 25. Sad that you have to consider these things when going to a movie.

Theater 1 indeed has no masking ability.
Theater 10 and 14 does have masking and should be in working order again. For a time, last year, 10 was out of order.

Theater 8 (Dolby) and Theater 13 (IMAX) has no masking abilities.bWhich is common for those formats.

All other theaters 2 - 7, 9 - 12, and 14 have masking.

34th Street seems to be the current, go to, theater for Midtown at the moment ,between 34th, Empire 25, and E-Walk. They were the latest to get upgrades (recliners, more food options, large screens). Much newer looking than fading Empire 25, especially with the bedbugs. Once E-WALK completes their renovations, we will see how things go.
