Flushing, NY: Tangram Movie Theater Will Now Be a Regal Location Instead of CGV

In October 2017, it was announced that South Korea-based CGV would be operating a movie theater in the Tangram development in Flushing, New York. Flushing is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens.

According to an article published recently by the Commercial Observer, Regal will be replacing CGV as the operator:

A year and three months after announcing that South Korea-Based CJ CGV would be the theater operator at Tangram, the developers of the 1.2-million-square-foot mixed-use project under construction in Flushing, Queens, have replaced CJ CGV with Regal Cinemas.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, “F&T [Group] and SCG [America] felt Regal was a better fit for the project and pulled out of the deal with CJ CGV. Tangram is a major project that’s elevating the lifestyle in Flushing so it made sense that they wanted to go with a globally recognized brand like Regal, especially with the 4DX experience.”

Regal has leased the 34,000-square-foot space from the developers, SCG America and F&T Group, and will run a multiplex with seven cinemas and the first 4DX experience—like a theme-park ride—in the borough.

Located at the site of the former Flushing Mall on 39th Avenue between College Point Boulevard and Prince Street, the movie theater was expected to open in late 2018, but now it appears that it might be the second quarter of 2019 before people start moving into the residential units.

As a result of this news, we have renamed the theater to the Regal Cinemas Flushing, which will be replaced by an official name when one is announced. Until it opens, moviegoers in the area will need to visit the College Point Multiplex Cinemas in Whitestone (about a mile away).
