My apologies if this is a stupid question. I have tried searching for an answer, but have not been able to find anything. I am compiling a list for myself of the cinemas that are most frequently listed as the best in NYC. Something that is puzzling me is that many of them have a number at the end of the name. I am trying to work out why this is and whether it is of any importance to me as a potential movie goer. For example, I have found "Regal Battery Park Stadium 11" and "Regal Battery Park Stadium 16" (which appear to have the same address), "AMC Loews Kips Bay 15", "UA Kaufman Astoria Cinema 14", "AMC Empire 25". When I Google "AMC Empire", for example, it seems that there is only one cinema called "AMC Empire", and that is the "AMC Empire 25". To a British cinema goer this seems very strange. The only numbers we have are the numbers of the screens within the cinema. The cinema itself isn't numbered. So I am wondering why this is the case, what it means, and whether the number is an essential part of the name.
Thanks for any light that can be shed.
