Saratoga Springs, NY: Bow Tie Cinemas Planning October 2013 Opening of Downtown and Wilton Mall Movie Theaters

Posted on Thursday, September 5th, 2013 11:42 AM

Bow Tie Cinemas is planning to open in October 2013 two new movie theaters in Saratoga Springs, New York, according to a recent article published by the Glens Falls Post-Star:

The family-owned theater chain Bow Tie Cinemas is planning to open new movie theaters in October in the Wilton Mall and downtown Saratoga Springs.

The chain revealed plans for the two new locations in February, the same week Regal Cinemas announced it would pull out of the Wilton and Latham Circle malls.


Work on the Bow Tie complex at the corner of Railroad Place and Church Street in Saratoga Springs is “pretty far along,” said Bow Tie Chief Operations Officer Joe Masher.

The downtown project at the site of a former Price Chopper will be a Criterion Cinemas complex. Masher said Criterion complexes are typically upscale, with programming geared toward adults, such as the “Movies and Mimosas” classic film series on Saturday and Sunday mornings and the “Insomnia Theater” cult film series every Friday and Saturday.

The downtown theater will have a beer and wine cafe and 11 auditoriums, including one Bow Tie Xtreme Giant Screen Auditorium (known as BTX) with a 2,000-square-foot screen, digital projection and 30,000 watts of Dolby digital 7.1 Surround Sound. All auditoriums will have leather rocking seats, wall-to-wall screens, 7.1 Dolby digital sound and digital projection with 3D capability.

The Regal Cinemas Wilton Mall 8 closed in February 2013, citing declining business at that location. Soon after that announcement, Bow Tie Cinemas announced that it would be renovating the location and building a new theater downtown as well.
