However, this particular multiplex has all the charm of a bus station.

Why can’t a multiplex be a treasure? You don’t think that countless numbers of people think fondly of this theater and all the different experiences they’ve had there? If the theater closed where you saw your favorite movies, perhaps had your first date, spent time with your family, etc. – does the fact that it’s a multiplex make it any less memorable?

Since when is a multi-plex a treasure? As once was famously said in another context it should be a buried treasure.

Based upon what exactly?

There’s a very good likelihood that the theater will not close.

Does anybody know when this theater is supposed to close? I noticed they’re already selling tickets to Fast X which doesn’t open until May. I know any tickets can be refunded if/when the theater does close, but why even bother programming the showtimes and selling tickets if they know they’re not even going to be around anymore by the time the movie opens?

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

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?

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!

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.

thehorror13 on January 21, 2023 at 5:53 pm

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.

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.

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

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,

why did the Chelsea close??? was this something that was known or
was it a literal last minute decision.

markp on January 20, 2023 at 12:22 am

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.

dallasmovietheaters on January 19, 2023 at 11:30 pm

Sorry you lose all the various formats at that location. Regal may close them all on Valentine’s Day as the rejection of the lease is the next day, according to the court documents. But Feb. 12, 2023 would seem more plausible.

Inuchan915 on January 19, 2023 at 10:19 pm

Union Square is my goto theater for years. 42nd St is still not even fully remodeled, guess they have to pay for it somehow. Just throwing it out there, wonder if Regal will try to take over the smaller Chelsea cinemas to stay in town.

ridethectrain on January 19, 2023 at 9:26 pm

Im very shocked, the two AMC locations 19th Street and Village plus the Village East will be busy. This is not good plus the Chelsea just closed

If they don’t own the site and had a 25 year lease, I bet the renewal rent has gone through the roof.

mhvbear on January 19, 2023 at 6:13 pm

This theater was just totally remolded not too long ago. I was a bit surprised. This along with Lincoln Square was one of the go to theaters to see a movies in NYC.

Regal Union Square Stadium 17 is no longer advertising the fact they have a RPX Screen on their website. They are advertising this theatre as Regal Union Square ScreenX & 4DX.

The renovations removed a grand interior staircase between the two levels. The cafe is where the box office once was, and now there is just one staffed station in the corner. The screens of the two main screens are in the same place the screens always were, and the renovations extend the balconies down with full stadium seating, which is why the former ”downstairs” screens are so small. They occupy only the bits of space beneath the original balconies. The large screens were always relatively small compared to the large screens at other big Manhattan multiplexes, so if these have all the same large screen and PLF movies as all the other multiplexes, there is no compelling reason to come here from outside the neighborhood. In auditorium 12 now and the seat has lots of leg room and is comfy enough but has no recline to speak of. The AMCs to the north and south have better seats and screens that are as good or better as any here, so there’s barely a reason to come here from inside the neighborhood. This was shinier and newer when it opened, but the AMC upgrades improved dowdy sloped floor multiplexes while this one, with its stadium seating only in the back rows with lots of flat screens…
