News About This Theater
- Dec 23, 2005 — Loews and AMC to Sell 10 Theaters
Situated in downtown Seattle across from the Washington State Convention Center at 7th Avenue and Pike Street. This 16-plex was opened by Cineplex-Odeon in November 1996, and looks more like an office building on the outside than a movie theater. The non traditional open counter box office is located at street level. From there take the nearby escalators to the second level which features eight auditoriums, a large concession stand, bulk candy station and espresso stand. The restrooms are on a mezzanine level over looking the second level.
From the second floor take another escalator to the third floor which also has eight additional auditoriums and a large concession area. The second and third levels are nearly identical. All levels have huge almost unobstructed views of outside and the large archway to the Convention Center. The three floors have high two-story ceilings which are decorated with hanging artwork.
AMC acquired this theatre, along with the rest of the Loews Cineplex chain, in January 2006. As a condition of approving the merger, the state and federal governments required Loews and AMC to sell ten theatres, including this one. It became a Regal cinema on September 15, 2006. Renovations were carried out in 2017 to the plans of architectural firm The Design Collective.
