14-Screen Regal Cinemas Now Open at Essex Crossing
For the first time in a long time – at least two decades – there is again a multiplex on the Lower East Side. Regal Cinemas at Essex Crossing just opened to the public over the weekend.
The announcement was rather casual. Just a brief press release at 5:30pm last Friday evening.
The fourteen-screen theater at 129 Delancey Street (aka Site 2) is playing the following movies on this maiden run:
Best of Enemies
Five Feet Apart
Avengers: End Game
Dinner-and-a-movie style service is part of the experience here. There is stadium seating (via recliners) with individual tables attached for dining and drinking. (Food and drink can be carried from point of purchase to the seats.) There is a kitchen serving food at all hours of operation, but, once booze is flowing, only one drink per customer at a time.
To that end, the State Liquor Authority has yet to grant the on-premise liquor license, though, according to public record.
