My theatre, Harkins Superstition Springs has 25 auditoriums, and of those, 15 of them only have 80 seats. 2 have 120 seats, and 6 range from 160-300 seats. The 2 other are largest and have 460 seats.

Kinepolis in Europe has the real mosterplexes, the Antwerp 24 has 8368 seats and the world's biggest cinema complex, the Kinepolis Studio 24 in Madrid has an whopping 9,196 seats [Cool] (i belive that 3 of the auditoriums has over 1000 seats each.), this is the reason that AMC built these 24-30 plexes.

website:
http://investors.kinepolis.com/index.cfm?PageID=15860

and they have the biggest 20-plex in the world (in Poland) not the planned one by Warren near OK city.

can anybody find me a cinema that has more than 9196 seats?
i guess not [bow down]

It may be tougher to program movies at
Cineplex Galaxy Colossus 18 (the movie spaceship on the left of the google image and AMC Interchange 30 (on the right) as they are about less then a mile apart (Canada's biggest and 2nd biggest cinemas)

Map

or
StarCite Ste Foy 18 (to be sold to Wallace?)(Bottom right of aerial) and the Cineplex Odeon Ste Foy 14 next door
Google aerial at Map

or
Edwards Palace 22 (has IMAX) and AMC Ontario Mills 30

Regal (Edwards) Ontario 22 and the AMC Ontario Mills 30 tend to run the same programming, believe it or not. There are rare occasions -mostly during the summer and Thanksgiving/Christmas- when the programming varies. But ususally it's the same flicks playing across all 52 screens.

What benefit, if any, is there to opening a theater bigger than 16 screens?

A few years ago I was vacationing in Cananda and was reading the paper and was shocked to see that Ontario AMC had a movie on 7 screens. Though I don't remember the title of the movie I remember thinking to myself, that is crazy. I do remember that it was a crappy movie that most other theaters would open on one screen and would be lucky to draw 50 or so people a day. I figured it was so that they could have a movie running in every auditorium.

Heck I work for a 16 screen theater and sometimes I wonder why we open certain movies on more than one screen. Seriously did we really need 2 screens of Bad News Bears or 2 screens of Deuce Bigalow 2. But then we open some other movies on one screen when we needed another print. The opening weekend of Pacifier we sold out all of our shows and we only had it one screen with no capability to interlock it.

Amanda, if the "Ontario AMC" you're talking about is the Interchange 30, they're in the middle of a relatively high income area of impatient immigrants that will pay too see anything as long as it starts "right now".

In Southeastern Pennsylvania, the two biggest theatres are: AMC Neshaminy 24 Theatre , wher I work at, in Bensalem, and REG's Regal Marketplace 24 Theatre, in Oaks. The next biggest is REG's Regal Warrington Crossing Stadium 22 Theatre, in Warrington.

In South Jersey, the two biggest are: AMC Hamilton 24 Theatre, in Hamilton, and AMC (Loews Cineplex) Cherry Hill 24 Theatre, in Cherry Hill. (The Cherry Hill will be a AMC after the merger with Loews Cineplex is completed). [Smile]

Muvico's new Medowlands Xandu in New Jersey claims that it may be the largest theater (in terms of seats) in the country, I'm excited about it - a movie theater with a Helipad for private VIP access, that's badass.

There is actually a fairly large theatre under construction at the moment in Denver. The Harkins Stapleton 18 Cine Capri theatre will have around 4,800 seats. It is being built with 18 auditoriums along with Harkins' Signature Cine Capri Auditorium with 600 seats, and a 70 foot screen. The Cine Capri is much like a very ritzy IMAX theater running regular features.

Edwards has an 18 screen multiplex about 5 minutes from where I am,
while, in Mission Valley, AMC has a 20-plex, and near the end of San Diego, AMC has a 24-plex.
