When mega-development Essex Crossing was in the planning stages, a representative from developer Delancey Street Associates noted that a movie theater was high on Lower East Side residents’ wish lists. Last weekend, that wish came true: A Regal Cinemas multiplex opened to the public at 129 Delancey Street, in the base of The Essex and practically on top of the Delancey Street subway stop (h/t 6sqft).

The 14 screens are currently showing crowd-pleasers like Shazam, Captain Marvel, and Dumbo. The theaters are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and reclining seats with footrests. It offers greater predictability than local favorite Metrograph, but does not aspire to be a replacement for the iconic Landmark Sunshine Cinema, which closed in January 2018.

Apartments in The Essex start on top of the retail space and enjoy gorgeous city views as a result. This 26-story rental has attracted attention for its status as the tallest building in Essex Crossing and residential amenities like a rooftop terrace, garden terrace, social and library lounges, and fitness center. Current availabilities start at $3,995/month.

In addition to Regal Cinemas, The Essex houses the relocated and expanded Essex Street Market, which will open in May, and the first phase of The Market Line, a market of global foods which will embrace local businesses and open later this year. No word yet on whether moviegoers will be able to bring in snacks purchased here.
