East 6, AMC Loews Orpheum 7 and AMC Magic Johnson Harlem 9.The AMC Kips Bay 15 is in the middle of a renovation and will have reserved seating when that’s done this fall.The initial results were “encouraging and we would expect broad rollout sometime in the next three to nine months,” he said.

The movie offerings are standard wide-release films, but the nosh has more variety: Drinks include beer, wine, and craft cocktails like a dirty martini with cheese-stuffed olives, or seasonal fruit-based concoctions.

Snacks and entrees are on the heartier side, like tender and filling wagyu sliders, pan-seared salmon, and a cacio e pepe.

Early this month, CEO Adam Aron told analysts that reserve seating is a big part of his plan to boost sales.

For example, AMC’s testing a mobile app that enables ticket buyers to also order food and have it delivered to their seats when they want.

Manhattanites who hate having to show up early at movie theaters to find decent seats are about to have a new option that should attract the attention of the exhibition industry.

Beginning September 2, moviegoers will pick the seats they want when they buy tickets for AMC theaters in the borough, the chain said today.

If not seeing a movie, the House of Wax bar near the entry is worth checking out — it has a collection of cheekily morbid curiosities from a German wax anatomical museum that shut down in 1922. 23rd St., between Seventh and Eighth avenues Cinepolis Chelsea — which locals may remember as the Bow-Tie Cinemas, or Clearview before that — recently completed its conversion to a dine-in theater, albeit a low-key one.

There’s no alcohol here; instead, patrons can order from a selection of standard movie theater snacks and drinks, as well as more hearty entrees that get delivered straight to the reclining leather seat.

Most of them work the same way: Patrons order at their seats, often from a menu of takes on American bar food, and a server collects orders throughout the show, dropping off the check near the end of the movie.

But some use a slightly different system and range in vibes and luxury levels.
