Battery Park Cinema gets a makeover

December 02, 2010 02:36PM

A renovation is underway at the Battery Park City Regal Cinema in the Embassy Suites Hotel, owned by Goldman Sachs. The box office and entrance to the theater are being moved to the second story, and the newly vacant space will be absorbed back into the hotel, a Regal employee told the Broadsheet Daily. Embassy Suites is also being redesigned. The hotel is slated to close in early January for a gut renovation that will transform it into a Conrad Hilton. As part of the renovation, the space that currently houses the theater box office and entrance will become part of the retail corridor that Goldman Sachs plans to fill with food joints such as Shake Shack and Blue Smoke. A Regal insider said that the theater is expected to remain open through the renovation of the hotel, and that the reconstruction work should be finished before the end of December. [Broadsheet Daily]
