AMC 34th Street 14

This 14-screen megaplex was constructed during the building, or overbuilding, of mega-plexes that took place in Manhattan in the late-1990’s into 2000. It was opened on November 2, 2001 with a total seating capacity of 2,860.

Located only eight blocks from the much higher profile W. 42nd Street Loews E-Walk, the 34th Street mega-plex is somewhat off-the-beaten track between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue.

When both theaters were Loews houses, much, if not all, of the fare was day and date with the E-Walk. It was refurbished with recliner seats in March 2020 and the seating capacity was reduced to 803 in 9-screens. By March 2021 all 14 screens were operating with a total seating capacity of 1,235.

I know on the 1st theatre level the theatres are: 1-3 on the left; 4 & 5 on the right, 6 is on the 8th Avenue side of the building, past 1-3, and Dolby-7 is on the 33rd street side, with the Main stand on the 9th Avenue side. My question is: How are Theatres #9 to 14 arranged on the 2nd theatre level (I know the upper doors to #6-8 are by the 2nd level concession)?

2nd Level: When coming off escalator, Theater 9 and 10 are on the right, 11 to 13 on the left (13 is IMAX Laser) and 14 is to the right of the concession if AMC kept it in the renovation. Dontt go there anymore, restrooms are too far from the auditorium are the middle level, Loews poorly designed this theatre.

  1. Bedbug bites last summer. Saw two movies here that day: Top Gun in 9 and Jurassic in IMAX. Don’t know in which one I was bitten but it hardly matters - the critters are mobile. Haven’t been back since.
  2. Nobody went here when it first opened. Now it might be more ghetto than the Empire. I have felt unsafe here. It now attracts a particularly rude and rowdy crowd.
  3. Since the renovation, theaters 1, 10 and 14 no longer have masking. Last time I checked, 4, 5, 9, 11 and 12 still had masking. Don’t know about 2, 3, 6 or 7. Might go back soon wearing minimal clothing that I can throw away to avoid bringing critters home. Was also bitten at the Empire in number 25. Sad that you have to consider these things when going to a movie.

Theater 1 indeed has no masking ability.
Theater 10 and 14 does have masking and should be in working order again. For a time, last year, 10 was out of order.

Theater 8 (Dolby) and Theater 13 (IMAX) has no masking abilities.bWhich is common for those formats.

All other theaters 2 - 7, 9 - 12, and 14 have masking.

34th Street seems to be the current, go to, theater for Midtown at the moment ,between 34th, Empire 25, and E-Walk. They were the latest to get upgrades (recliners, more food options, large screens). Much newer looking than fading Empire 25, especially with the bedbugs. Once E-WALK completes their renovations, we will see how things go.
