MBI Group, a New York City-based construction firm specializing in ground-up construction and interior fit-outs, was retained as general contractor for the construction of Regal Entertainment Group’s new 13-screen movie theater located at 321 Merrick Road in Lynbrook, New York. The 83,000 SF state-of-the-art theater features a Regal Premium Experience (RPX) theater with surround sound, eye-popping 2D and 3D images, and seats that can vibrate and have built-in speakers.
“MBI Group is proud to have completed the new movie theater for Regal Entertainment Group, one of the largest and most prestigious movie theater chains in the country,” stated Alex Getelman, Executive Managing Director of MBI Group. “The way people consume entertainment has changed significantly, but one thing hasn’t: people still love going to the movies. We are excited for Lynbrook and the surrounding Long Island communities to experience and enjoy this high-quality, modern theater. For over 30 years, MBI Group has been dedicated to construction and general contracting excellence for commercial properties in the New York area and beyond.”
The scope of the new Regal theater included the demolition of the century-old United Artist theater that previously occupied the site; the excavation for the new building; site work; structural steel, concrete, roofing, elevator and escalator elements; installation of security systems and high-end finishes; storefront and curtain wall systems; the installation of the exterior metal panels and pneumatic tube system; as well as extensive electrical, life safety and mechanical work and various audio visual components. MBI Group’s project team worked closely with the developer, Blumenfeld Group, with whom they have worked for over 15 years; and Regal Entertainment Group. Other members of the design team included JKRP Architects, Enviro Design & Mechanical Engineering, RMS Engineering, and Pennoni Associates as structural engineer.
