Regal Cinema Crossgates Mall Is Getting A Major Makeover!
When “Spider-man Far From Home” came out a few weeks ago my wife, son and I decided to go see it at Regal Cinemas Crossgates Mall. I’m sure you’ve been there before…and it’s a really nice place with lots of theaters to eat popcorn and watch blockbusters on the big screens. However, the seats in the theater we were in were horribly uncomfortable. They are the old school small seats that don’t recline or rock. I know I’m probably spoiled by other theaters having “Dreamlounger” these heated leather recliners that really make it feel like you’re watching the movie in your living room. Heck, I even went so far as to buy one for my house!
Well, the good news is that is going to change!
This is all part of movie theaters all across the country that are feeling the pinch or huge TV's in peoples houses, streaming options, comfy couches and not having to leave home. Theater owners figured out a few years ago when ticket sales started to decline that they needed to make the in theater experience more like watching a movie in your living room.
Regal Cinemas has announce a multi-million renovation of several theaters in the Empire State and Crossgates Mall 18 is on the list.
So what is coming? A coffee and juice bar, VIP sections with recliners and the biggest innovation to movie theaters in years, 4DX a totally immersive movie experience that will shake your seat, blow air on your neck and do other things that make you feel like you're in the movie and it’s all on a 270-degree massive screen. No word on when the renovation will start, or be finished, but I can’t wait!
