United Artists Grant Plaza 9 Theaters

AMC has Northeast Philly pretty much covered (Neshaminy, Woodhaven, Franklin Mills, and the Orleans…I guess), but that doesn’t stop Regal Cinemas from operating this generally unimpressive nine-screen multiplex at the junction of Welsh Road and Grant Avenue (between Bustleton and Krewstown). It opened on June 16, 1995.

Screens are small-ish, sound is average, seating is meh. On the other hand, if you’re hoping to see a new blockbuster, this theater might offer less of a crowd to contend with…

This location is receiving the “Regal King Size” Recliners right now

Have started seeing some films at Grant Plaza once again. The auditoriums have literally all been reduced to half the original seating capacity with the conversion to the big recliners. Even without stadium seating, you now get an unobstructed view of the screen, even with someone sitting directly in front of you because of the unusually large space between rows needed to accomodate the recliners…which is a good thing for my short self. Aud 2 & 8 which are the smallest have definately benefited from a change in seating configuration, eliminating the isle that devided the seats down the middle has created much improved site lines which also make the screen appear larger. Little bit disappointed by the redone decor; it’s clean as a pin but a bit too “blackbox” sterile. The original decor had a nice hint of old time movie theater style and warmth with the stylized wall lighting fixtures and color scheme. Good 4k Digital projection and decent sound. The best auditoriums are still the two big ones, #3 and #7 with their 40' wide ‘scope screens and excellent sight lines improved by the reduced seating.

Next time you’re there how about getting a seating count for each auditorium?

Yeah, I do get a bit too deeply into this stuff sometimes. At least it keeps me out of trouble…..

Regal recliners do seem a bit more comfy than the AMC version, based upon my experience at Regal New Roc City.

Never been to an AMC with recliners. The only AMC theaters with recliners in the Philly area that I am aware of is AMC Woodhaven and the Marleton 8 and Deptford 8 over in South Jersey. Soemthing is going on at the AMC Neshaminy 24 as the IMAX and theater #24 have been shut down for the next 12 weeks….but that’s a mystery at this time.

I think the mysterious thing may be a laser imax upgrade

At Neshaminy, it was the conversion of Theatre #24 to Dolby Cinema, and the addition of recliners and new decor in the IMAX Theatre
