Northern Hell’s Kitchen is getting a movie theater. Now that exterior construction has been completed on the 32-story, 709-unit mixed-use building, dubbed VIA 57 WEST, at 625 West 57th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, work is underway to lease the building’s apartments and fill its 45,000 square feet of retail space. One of those commercial tenants now includes Landmarks Theatres, which will operate an eight-screen movie theater within the base of the building.

The theater will be spread across two levels and feature “leather electric recliner seats,” a refreshment concession, an “active video wall,” and unique lighting. The theater will also feature a private bar and space for movie-related events. Opening of the theater is scheduled for spring of 2017.

The 800,000-square-foot project now only has one, 7,000-square-foot retail storefront up for grabs. As for the residential units above, leasing is underway, and it’s worth noting that 142 of them (20 percent) will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. The Durst Organization is the developer and Bjarke Ingels Group (a.k.a BIG) is behind the design.
