Please Stay Away – Picture quality and sound are barely passable but what's really bad is the fact that every ten minutes or so an usher walks around the theater waving a flashlight about and annoying the audience. Cleanliness is not important here either. Skip the popcorn: once I saw a candy stand employee put her hand in the popcorn and snack on some.
Not impressed – I have to say that this has got to be one of the more disgusting theaters I've been in. Have they heard of a mop?
HUGE TAILED ANIMALS THAT DONT BELONG IN A THEATER! – I saw 'Rachel Getting Married' in theater 13 at Regal Union Square Stadium 14 about a month ago. During the film I noticed little creatures scurrying in the aisles. I asked my boyfriend to move (we were sitting on the bottom). We climbed up the steps and I sat next to the wall. After the film ended and the lights came on a huge creature (they dont let you say the R word on here) ran across the wall (spider-man style) right next to my face and I screamed and jumped up. . I reported the incident to the h department. A huge chain movie theater CAN and SHOULD clean u their act.
Used to be great, has gone downhill – When this theater opened, it seemed like the wave of the future with stadium seating and good sightlines. Unfortunately, in recent years, the air conditioning has grown increasingly spotty, the ushers can be rude and the insane crowds pretty much guarantee that this isn't going to be a pleasant movie experience.
Blockbusters aren't cheaper by the dozen ... unless you sneak from one screening room to the next. – The Scene
Tucked behind the Union Square Virgin Megastore, Regal Cinemas' Union Square Stadium 14 resembles Sony's Village and Lincoln Square multiplexes--just bigger and sleeker. The glass-shrouded, moodily-lit, black-and-gray interior houses over a dozen wall-to-wall screens; each auditorium is equipped to handle digital sound (THX, SDDS, Dolby and DTS) and has listening devices for the hearing impaired. Near the box office are electronic ticket machines that take credit cards.
This theater's main edge over other city multiplexes is its stadium seating. The tiered rows of seats protect precious sight lines while providing a more communal feeling. You'll have to go home or to the Walter Reade Theatre to find more comfortable, cushioned, high-backed, rocker seats. Like most downtown theaters, this place offers no matinee prices, and rarely programs indies, foreign films and re-releases among the usual slate of blockbusters.

Great Theater but a zoo – Living in the neighborhood, I was pleased that a state-of-the-art mutli-screen was nearby. Unfortunatley, UA pushes the popcorn and commercials to the point that the experience is more of an amusement park and zoo then it is a place to watch smaller movies. We should all BOYCOTT theaters that run commercials, no matter how they dress up the cars and Sony Play Stations, commercials are an insult to customers who pay $10.00 for a ticket. Run short films.
Rude Staff - BAD Customer Service – Tried to see 8 Mile here the other night for the 11:00 pm showing. When my girlfriend and I got to the theatre at 11, we were told "box office closed" - okay, maybe true - but it was EXACTLY 11:00 pm.. and weren't let in. When we asked to use the moviefone machines, we were told "sorry - sold out". (C'mon, don't lie! Box office closed, OR sold out?!) When we indicated that we had charged tix on MovieFone and wanted to pick them up, we were told "no way - we're not letting you in - box office closed, and sold out" (!?!?) When we tried to ask any other questions, we were told "look, we're not letting you in, and if you keep talking you are just going to piss us off. We run the doors, and we aren't letting you in". WHY NOT?!? GO ELSEWHERE!!
Great theater, Lousy Concessions. – Super theater... All the modern conveniences, good screens, great seating. Recliners and cup holders all around. The concessions are staffed by idiots. Cashier was rude. I ordered a diet coke and ended up with a regular sprite.
terrible projection quality – I sat through a packed screening here and the light intensity of the projector was fading in and out for the whole movie. Incredibly annoying and seriously messed up the overall picture quality. I complained about it afterward to the "manager" who looked at me with a blank stare. What was most incredible is that it did not seem to bother people, who seem perfectly content to be subjected to sub-standard projection almost everywhere I go. I can't believe that whoever is responsible for projection in these mutiplexes doesn't have enough INTEREST in their collective jobs to CARE about the quality of the image. It infuriates me more and more as I get older.
