Moviegoers head to the new Regal Clifton Park Cinemas during the grand opening events.
continued “This is just another phase of our ongoing upgrade to the mall,” said Donald MacElroy, vice president of DCG Development, which operates the center. “We are thrilled.”
MacElroy said traffic to the mall has increased dramatically since the theater opened and that the response from the community has been “tremendous.”
Regal Clifton Park is one of only two cinemas in New York State to have a Regal Premium Experience (RPX) theater. It has 400 leather, Memory Foam seats for optimal viewing and surround sound. But the extra comfort and crisp pictures comes with an additional fee of $4.50.
“Regal premiered RPX at our theater on 42nd Street in Times Square with great success and now we are proud to bring this amazing giant screen experience to upstate New York,” said Gallagher.
MacElroy said the new Hilton Garden Inn is scheduled to open in December, which will hold Angelo's Prime Bar and Grille. An Olive Garden will follow in 2012 and upgrades to the mall, like new interior floors and store fronts, will continue.
