This is right on West Street at the very end of 57th Street in Manhattan. The area is pretty scant and under final construction as new buildings are just opening there. This theater is on the ground floor of some slanted pyramid shaped new building near the cruise line piers.
There is an upscale restaurant right next door. Other than Hudson Market at other end of block on 11th Ave - a deli across the street on 11th, the theater is way down on 12th Avenue. But it's not so bad if you are not walking in inclement weather.
The staff were all wonderful! Many theaters have staff that are just there for the paycheck, it seems the staff here are happy and instructed to treat the guests like VIP's with a smile.
The theater is brand new! The floors clean. No funky odors or greasy floors.
The seats are fantastic.. almost full reclining plush leather like big lounge chairs that operate by electric switch on in side of arm rest. Large cup holder on every armrest.
Sound and images were as good as any great theater.
Inconvenient location to get to by public transportation (th M31 turns on 11th just up the block near Hudson Market, so it doesn't even make it down the long avenue to other corner where theater is). I believe I saw an indoor garage entrance on same block.
Restrooms are pretty clean, so clean I decided to visit it twice.
Clutter free welcoming concession stand (could get over run if crowded) and a bar area in front of theater. From what I saw it seemed all the theaters were on the same floor (#4 and #5? were just a few steps down from others, and where ladies room is; men's room in near #4).
It was a nice experience thanks to the staff, its upkeep and of course how new it is. Give it a year or two and lets see how well this location is maintained. My guess the staff here is onboard and efficient and see a clean fresh theater with happy guests means job security :)
Enjoy the show!
