A movie going experience unlike any other. This place was packed for a Sunday evening. It didnt take long to find out why. Apparently Sunday is some sort of reduced price movie experience. It cost $11 for two of us to see a new movie. CRAZY! It was a little stressful because of assigned seating as Ive never experienced that at a movie theatre before. The seats were big comfy and leather. They also had a swivel table on them and electronically reclined. This place must have time traveled back from the future to bring all of its awesomeness to us. Would have given them 5 stars but the stressful nature of a new experience coupled with the longer than normal lines threw me off a bit.
One of 2 large theaters in the area. The Lowes theater in Vestal has nicer seats, but has much, much smaller theaters and sells out very quickly. Regal Cinema, has many more seats, so you can always get a seat. They have recently updated the seats to have high backs, power foot rests, and a nice tray table that can fold out of the way if you desire. The ticket prices are average, and the sound is good. The only complaint is that loud sounds from nearby theaters often creeps into your movie theater, making it sound like thunder. Its not a big deal, but you do notice it during quiet scenes of your movie.
The employees are friendly and the theatre is clean and neat. However, I dont like the new recliner seating. In order to add the bigger chairs they had to put the front seats lower and closer to the scene to fit more seat. At AMC this is not a problem because the seats go all the way back. The seat here dont recline even half as far so when sitting in the front you have to crane you neck to see and by the end of the movie you are in desperate need of a chiropractor. please fix this as it really stinks that you have pre order tickets or go on slow days just to make sure you get a decent seat.
When I come to this theater, I do enjoy the comfort. But this Regal theater hates showing Faith films. Great movie last week (Greater- life story of Arkansas walkon football player who became an All American but then died in a car crash. Did Regal show it- nope Friday, Hillsong (ever hear even one of their songs? Ever go to church?) has a true life movie out; Let Hope Rise. I see this Regal will not be showing that either. Management - feel free to rebuttle! We just dont get it!
The snack bar is a joke. There are fewer hot-food selections than AMC Vestal, and yet what they do have are much higher priced. For instance, AMC Vestal has a bowl of pretzel bites with nacho cheese for about $5. For about the same price, Regal Cinemas Binghamton serves a standard small pretzel which they microwave inside a plastic packet. This pretzel is only about 20% of the pretzel serving of what you get at AMC, yet it commands the same price. Absurd.
I used to go to Regal many many years ago and I stopped due to them having fabric and DISGUSTING seats. After our areas major flood I ended up being a regular at Loews UNTIL they remodeled. I love their new chairs! Its is modern, they have small swing tables for your food and it generally seems well kept. Their concession stand could use some help though. It is a large area but never seems to have enough staff on hand to deal with the crowd.
Regal has recently renovated their theaters with new, more comfortable seating. If you have ever been to AMC Loews in the town square mall, you are familiar with the type of seating I am talking about. Cushy recliners make a much more comfortable movie experience. There are plenty of theaters available allowing for a wide selection of movies to be playing at any given time. Easily the biggest theater in the tri-city area.
Im not sure why they send ushers with flashlights to walk across the front of the theater TWICE DURING EVERY SHOWING. Its incredibly distracting, and its the reason I try to never go here. Edit, one year later: the new recliners are comfortable, but this insane policy of sending an usher with a flashlight through the theater a few times is still happening. Why purposefully distract everyone from enjoying the movie?
They did some upgrades which isnt half bad. Prices are about average and generally you arent waiting too long to grab your tickets and head into the movie you want to see. Some weekends if you go there and come out, you can see some hot rides over in Cracker Barrel as thats a meet up location for some of the car guys. Discounts for students and also discounts on the slow days of the week which is nice.
I gave it three stars because its everything you need in a movie theater but its not much more than that. Ive seen a lot of great movies here and the bathrooms are clean, but the building and decor are nothing special. If youre used to more extravagant cinemas, youll be disappointed by this one. If you just want to watch a movie and get on with your night, then this place is perfect for you.
Three people on their cell phones during the entire movie. The attendant walked by several times and said nothing. One person selling tickets with 20 people in line. Clueless about what is going in in their own estaishment. I would have said something to the people on their phones, but these days you never know what someone might do to you. The one girl thought she was a gangsta.
Sunday morning, came here with my two children to watch a movie. My children and another family with four children and two adults watching a movie. They complain that my one year old is being to loud and theyre going to kick us out of the movie. Meanwhile this families children have been talking and laughing and being loud the entire movie. Its SUNDAY MORNING... Seriously..
The angle of the seats in the theater is perfect for viewing and every seat is pointed directly at the screen. The place is well-maintained and you can just tell when walking in that its regularly vacuumed. The only downside is that their ticket prices are higher than Loews, even for their matinee shows. But you can tell that the money is definitely reinvested into the place.
Went today to see Cars 3. Only the front speakers were working. Three times we asked for the volume to be turned up and was treated like an annoyance. It was a bit frustrating. Then after the movie the manager didnt have time to speak with us. Our experience was not great customer service after buying 12 movies tickets today plus, drinks, plus popcorn. Very disappointing.
The good: - You can order food in the theater. - pick your own seats The bad: - highway robbery prices (paid 10.35 for 2 waters) - seats dont recline very far, uncomfortable viewing angle - tiny theaters, tiny screens - waiters walking around with those annoying red glow sticks every 15 minutes Overall, just go to AMC if you have the choice.

For the Binghamton area, theyre overpriced. The sound system in the theaters is really good, and they have a wide selection of movies on screens with a great visual experience. But if you want to get the most value for your money, theres other theaters in the greater Binghamton area you should check out instead.
