There’s no doubt about it: a movie theater is a must-see for any New Yorker, and indeed, for the whole country. A huge movie theater with more than seven screens featuring a variety of movie presentations including movies on DVD, block-buster titles and popular films showing in between new releases is soon opening in Flushing that weekend. The location is the Citibank Grand Hyatt Queens Bowery, and it’s the first of its kind in the New York area. In addition to providing moviegoers with a wide array of offerings, the hotel itself boasts lots of other amenities that make watching a movie even more enjoyable.
The theater itself is divided into three sections: the multiplex, stage and executive offices. The multiplex holds a capacity of 1500 seats, and is divided into three smaller theaters showing different genres of movie. On the other hand, the stage is where the movie is being watched. Imax cinemas in New York City are often used to show all types of films – family films, international fare and all the big new titles. Finally, there are the executive offices, which are where you’ll find the main TV screens and sound systems for watching movies during your leisure time. It also features a bar and lounge where customers can go and enjoy the theater’s delicious food.
The Citibank Grand Hyatt Queens Bowery has all the latest technologies in the movie theater industry. For example, the theater offers two Dolby surround sound speakers along with state-of-the-art digital screens. Other technologies also include video walls, digital photo frames, a digital concession stand and a bar. The latest technology allows movie theaters in New York to offer panoramic views of the town, along with the action on the screens – and all at a comfortable scale for the patrons.
When you visit a movie theater in New York, it’s a good idea to head to the downtown area. A lot of the entertainment companies have their head offices in the downtown Brooklyn area. You will find many of the top names in Hollywood in the vicinity, like Showtime, Disney and Dreamworks. The New York Stock Exchange is a few blocks away from the theater and shopping malls are a few blocks away – making it easy to get to all the action. The shops and restaurants are ideal for grabbing a bite to eat after the movie. The best part about visiting a movie theater in New York is that you won’t be far from all the action.
Of course, no movie theater is successful unless there is a good demand for it. That’s why both the digital and the traditional movie theaters are always booming. The demand for shows has always depended on whether or not people are actually interested in going to the movies. However, there are signs that the movie theater industry may be on the verge of experiencing a surge in interest.
Recently, financial analysts have suggested that ticket sales could surpass the revenues of the entire LCD, projection screen, and plasma TV industry by as much as twenty percent. With such a huge jump in demand, it’s only a matter of time before theaters catch up with their DVD competitors. One thing is for sure: there is no sign of DVD becoming extinct any time soon. With newer, higher-quality TVs offering clear and crisp images as well as a bigger selection of movies, there’s no reason to wait – start enjoying the latest Hollywood blockbuster right in the comfort of your home!
