Just got an update on the new Regal flagship at LA Live. According to the LA Live website, the theatre's not slated to open till 2009/2010. Oh well...gives 'em time to build those auds wide enough for side masking, I guess. [moon]

The company doing construction on the new AMC Atlantic Times Square in Monterey Park put up a banner on site with what the theatre is supposed to look like, and it looks like a Loews, and even has the LOEWS THEATRES logo on the picture. I wonder if this is the last Loews designed theatre opening.

The theater must have been designed years ago for Loews. I am surprised that it took them this long to get it under construction. It probably is the last Loews build. The most recent Loews build was AMC Aviation in Linden, New Jersey(June 29, 2007). All these recent designs look very much like alike as if the same architect copied the design over and over again. ie. AMC Rockaway, NJ and AMC Westgate in Glendale, AZ.

This one seems to have a different design since the building is a backwards L shape.

Thanks to our friends at Curbed LA, we have a look at the new Regal Flagship downtown:

Click for image and article

quote:
Sweet Sno-Caps love--a rendering for that 14-screen cineplex slated for L.A. Live just hit our InBox. Writes a tipster: "Located at the corner of Olympic Blvd and Georgia St (between the 110 and Figueroa) will be a 14-screen movie house with one "Premiere Theater" and 13 regular size screens (around 3,800 seats total). There are four levels all together which means there are basically two levels with seven screens stacked...it looks like it'll be a pretty cool space with a lot of glass along the street front and some post-art deco influences...it'll be right next door to the hotel conference center that is currently under construction and just west of the hotel/condo tower, the Nokia Theatre and LA Live." And this rendering is just a proposed one, mind you.

Looks similar to the old rendering on the LA Live website.

7 screens on 2 floors, huh? Doesn't sound shoeboxy. Maybe Regal sent some folks over to Arclight to see How It's Done and are wisely taking a few pages from them.

Hopefully, the screens will be well designed widescreens with left and right side masking. As for the outside, it lacks imagination and creativity. There is nothing spectacular or even remotely beautiful about it. I have seen Wal-Marts with nicer facades. However, hopefully the inside will surprise us all.

Here is a video and at 5:00 the new theater is in view. It has a glass lobby dome and a 750 seat Premiere auditorium.

15 Screen, 3700 Seat, with one 750 Seat Premiere Theatre.

That means 14 screens averaging 210 seats each. Seems like top down masking to me!

The theatre hasn't even been built. How can there be a video for it already? Unless it's one of those artist rendering type things that's a prototype for the final product.

Is this place gonna have 14 or 15 screens?

The video (an overview of the whole project) says 15 screens, 3700 seats.

How old is that video? The actual LA Live site states that it'll be 14 screens total.

Well, 14 Screens, with one at 750 seats put the others at around 225 each, still not stunning.
or they do something AMC like:

750
450
450
250
250
250
200
175
150
150
100
75
75
75
= 3400 Seats

So that's gonna be 1 70 footer (assuming Regal copies what Edwards did at Ontario Palace 22), 2 60's, 3-4 50's, and the rest Irvine Spectrum sized P.O.S'es. You would think they'd find some room to stick an IMAX in there - since the nearest IMAX'es would (still) be either The Bridge or AMC Universal Citywalk.

Then again, maybe that's the mysterious Screen #15...

Looks like I'll only come here on opening weekend...as usual.
I don't have You Tube access at work. Gotta check the video out later.

And where's the AMC (other than Norwalk 20 & the big houses at Citywalk) with a 750 seat aud? THIS I gotta see to believe!

Well, Im just saying they could do a funky auditorium arrangement like that. Who knows what the auditoriums will be. We'll have to see.....

National Amusements, Inc. is planning for a new theater to replace their current Lee Highway Multiplex. Plans call for a 14 or 16 screen theater. It will be a Cinema De Lux concept. It will surely impact AMC's fairly new Tysons Corner 16.
