Regal Union Square Stadium 17

Manhattan’s first all-stadium seating megaplex opened its doors for business on November 13, 1998 with 3,500-seats in 14 screens. United Artists were the initial operator. In the mid-2000’s it was taken over by Regal. Bookings consist mostly of standard major-studio Hollywood product and, usually at any given time, one or two indie-type and/or foreign flicks.

One of the most successful movie theatres in the city and a consistent source of sell-outs on Friday and Saturday nights. It was expanded to 17 screens in late-2019.

I guess for now its a stay for 42nd st. I wonder if they left it off because it still has the 70mm set up and Oppenheimer is coming out this summer.

This used to be an in place to see a movie. I did a comment Dec 2021 that I didn’t see the appeal of coming here when the close by AMCs had nice recliners, and when I occasionally checked the seating availability for movies opening here and Lincoln Square over the last several months did some double takes how few advance seats were being sold here vs for Lincoln Square. I am both surprised and not surprised that it is closing. Ironically, Regal website has showtimes for sale here well into the future while the eWalk only until March 2,

Regal and some of these closures listed like this one is ridiculous. This has always been a popular theater except for an issue with rats

Union square has become LESS ATTRACTIVE since it’s remodel. They no longer have masking of the screens to match the flat or scope ratios. Also their screens have become SMALLER. Watching scope movies on most of their screens are now very unattractive. Especially in theaters 4, 5, and 12. Also, after remodel, many of the EXIT signs are in very bad places. Some screens, like theater 2, have the EXIT sign see through behind the movie screen.

Also, people like having the recliners, and with the remodel they decided to keep regular seats to fit more people. But, the people aren’t coming in for the extra seats, except for the blockbuster titles.

Wow I thought they did recliners in the last remodel. I hate the not using masking. We are doing the Regal here but they have raised their prices ridiculous here in Asheville. After this I will stick with Cinemark and Epic. AMC is even worse.

I am not yet closing the book on this being the end of this Regal theater. Hopefully a new deal can be struck with the landlord for the Union Square. Previously other theaters were listed and then got a reprieval. Maybe here too.

If not, this location is crying out to be the city’s first Cinemark location!

is it closing? tickets still listed for sale many months from now, Is it possible that Regal filed to reject the lease in order to escape deferred rents from the pandemic, after which a new lease comes into effect?

advance tickets on sale doesn’t mean it will close. Regal will refund the tickets if they close
