I am the person who filed the report about getting bitten at the Anna Karenina screening at on west 23rd street. It turns out it wasn't a case of bug bites it is unrelated to that theater. Please disregard my earlier posting.


I went to see Anna Karenina on Friday, January 25 at the Loews theater on west 23rd street and the next morning noticed about 5 bites on my inner thigh and another 5 or so on my butt. They look just like bed bug bites, based on images online. Couldn't figure out where they had come from, as my husband was bite-free, then I put 2 and 2 together.


Went to see Zero Dark Thirty on Thursday the 17th of January. Came home with 6 large bed bug bites on my back. Clearly this theater has a problem that will not react too. Avoid at all costs.


I attended the 10:40 p.m. performance of "Keep The Lights On" in Auditorium 5 at the Chelsea Clearview Cinema located at 260 West 23rd Street on Monday, October 1st.

When I walked down to the lobby of the theatre I looked down on my sweatshirt and there were two bedbugs on my sweatshirt and another bedbug on my pants.

I stripped down to my underwear upon returning home and threw everything in my washing machine at a hot wash and mopped the floor and am praying none slipped to the floor a

nd across my apartment.

I went online and apparently Chelsea Clearview Cineman has a long history of bed bug infestations including in particular Auditorium 5.

I am never seeing another movie again anyplace except on netflix.

Saturday, August 11, 2012 Chelsea Clearview Cinema, theater #5, I was bitten by Bed Bugs on the back of my leg - three bites in a row. I did not go into this theater for one year due to bed bug reports. Finally broke down and went and they're still here!!! This theater is disgusting!!!


JULY 10,2012
THIS PLACE STILL HAS BEDBUGS .MY GF AND I WAS INSIDE ROOM 5 WHEN SHE WAS BITTEN.A FEW MINS LATER SHE TAPS ME AND POINTS TO THE BED BUIG CRAWLING AWAY QUICKLY. I TRIED TO CATCH IT BUT COULDN'T DUE TO THE DARKNESS OF THE ROOM. WHEN THE MOVIE FINISHED I MADE SURE TO TO TELL THE STAFF THAT WAS GOING IN TO CLEAN. THEY TRIED TO CONVINCE ME IT WAS A MOSQUITO. LOL I TOLD HER NO MISS I KNOW WHAT A BEDBUG IS AND WHAT I SAW WAS DEF A BEDBUG.SHE THEN TOLD HER CO-WORKER WHAT I REPORTED TO HER,

THE COWORKER TELLS ME "OH YOU GO ONLINE TO OUR WEBSITE AND REPORT IT." SMH SO TEN MINS LATER I SEEN ANOTHER STAFF MEMBER AND TOLD HIM WHAT HAD HAPPEN TO MY GF. RIGHT AWAY HE AGREED AND SAID YUP ROOM 5 HAS LOT OF REPORTS OF BEDBUGS BUT THE STAFF IS TRYING TO KEEP IT ON THE LOW.

I went to see a movie with a friend on June 5th and the next morning I woke up with my fingers very itchy. I had no idea what the bites were and I assumed they were spider bites. One finger had a triangular formation. A few days later I see a bug on my thigh and I kill it. I ID the bug and its a bed bug. I also realize it just bite me. I had 3 bites on my stomach. I am allergic so its began to itch and was red. I am currently healing and the bites look just like the ones on my fingers so I am pr

etty sure I picked up a bed bug from this theater!

Picked up a hitchhiker Friday evening, didn't realize it until waking up Sunday with one single bite on my shoulder. My paranoia kicked in (I've had bedbugs 2 years ago) so I searched the mattress. Thankfully only found one, and it was not mature yet. I certainly hope he didn't bring any friends with him.... I really can't imagine where else it could have come from, I strongly suspect it was at this theater.


Went to see a flick in auditorium #5. Didn't notice any bugs during the movie at all. About an hour after, I was itching my leg. This morning I found a total of 7 bites, 3 on the front of my left leg and 4 on the back of my right, all around my quads. (which makes sense, as I was wearing a dress and high socks, exposing only the skin on my thighs).

I am positive that they are bed bug bites because I have had bed bug bites before and they are very distinct in nature. They have turned int

o huge welts (as they did last time) and have a light colored center with a ring of red inflammation surrounding the bite.

This is the classic reaction for someone who is allergic (which I am, highly), however, keep in mind that not every one reacts to the bites. I went with two friends and neither of them have any. Just because you arent finding bites doesn't mean they (the nasty little specimins) arent there and crawling around you and on you (and onto your belongings!). I highly encourage steering clear of this theater all together. If two bugs crawl into your bag or onto your person, and you then go home, you have a serious problem. Its that easy. SAY NO TO CLEARVIEW.

Saw a movie last night, April 24 2012, for the Tribeca Film Fest, theater 8. Also saw a movie Monday April 23 at the same location, in theater 9. Woke up Wednesday April 25 with about 10 bites on my left arm. Searched my bed and found 1 bug (still alive) where my arm was. Has not been a problem in the past and bed shows no signs of previous infestation, so I'm convinced the bug came from the theater.


CHELSEA MOVIE THEATRE BED BUG INVESTED!!!!

I refuse to go to this theatre after hearing the complaints, and speaking to management directly about this problem. Management speaks in a forked tongue. They told me they have an investation and it is brought in by people. Not true. This is one of the worst infected movie theatres in NYC!

People don't bring in bed bugs!

Do not go to this movie theatre unless you are prepared to spend thousands of dollars on an exterminator in your home, esp

ecially, if you are one of the unlucky ones who brought them home from this movie theatre!

START A PETITION. CALL THE LOCAL NEWSPAPERS. LET'S ALL DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS MOVIE THEATRE AND GET IT CLOSED DOWN BEFORE OTHER PEOPLE GET HURT!

see full report...

If there is an infestation of this magnitude, why has the theater not been closed? It appears that there is no way to permanently control this situation. They can exterminate and the next day, a customer can bring in more bedbugs and in a few days there can be an infestation.

This is my neighborhood theater. I used to see movies here at least once a week. I am not going to theaters any more to see films. I will wait and watch films On Demand. It will be worth the wait.


9-6-2011 - Chelsea Clearview theater

Saw a movie - felt itchy in the chair. Got home and noticed that the back of my leg and my butt were irritated.

Realized in the morning that I had been bitten in the movie theater.

GROSS!!! Never going back there again.


Actually, I went in to the theater specifically to ask a manager what they were doing about the bedbug situation that is taking the entire city by storm.

What I was told was quite extraordinary.

Chelsea apparently steam-cleans every single seat in their auditorium monthly. They have weekly inspections to target any problem areas (Meaning areas where people have brought bed bugs from their own home/or other business they had visited into a newly steam-cleaned chair), and these seats are t

argeted individually by a bed-bug dog. Upon targeting a questionable seat, the chair is then steam cleaned.

By the end of each day, people have re-infested so many seats that it only makes sense that it would be nearly impossible to keep every single seat sparkling fresh for every single guest. Something to think about: A theater would need to steam-clean every single seat after every single show in order to maintain a bed-bug free environment. OUTRAGEOUS!

So lets be reasonable. These theaters are probably spending more money than necessary every MONTH just for us movie-goers to keep dirtying up all their hard work, AND then blame it on them.

I'm not a fan of bed-bugs. Nor am I a fan of infested theaters. But I am, however, a fan of Chelsea(This is my neighborhood theater!!)and someone needed to shed some logic on the nonsensical tirades.

Just took my daughter to the theater this morning. I was wearing a sleeveless romper and felt something small crawling on my back. I picked it off and shined my cell phone light on it. At first, I thought it looked like a chocolate sprinkle....until it started kicking its legs! Eeewwwww!!! I toldmanagement, who apologized and acknowledged that they had a past outbreak in 2008. He said that he would call the exterminator (who generally sprays every Monday night) to come in today.

Please

DO NOT go there!!!!! Bedbugs are very hard to get rid of. I'll be calling the Health Dept today.

I went to see pirates and the carribean and my daughter kept saying mommy I an itchy and cratching not wanting to sit down the I felt bite on my leg and just scratching the whole time wow I will not go to the theater any more omg see if I knew I wouldn't of went omg I could of brung it home


I went to this theater on Sunday, July 3rd and sat in theater 9 for the 4:20pm viewing of Bridesmaids. By 8pm that evening, my right calf had a trail of 10 bites that turned into gigantic, itchy welts. The pattern and swelling was so bizarre that I automatically googled "bed bugs" and "Chelsea Theater" because I had a sneaky suspicion that these were not mosquito bites.

I am beyond disgusted. I have avoided movie theaters for about a year for this very reason. Since things have died dow

n in the news about bed bugs I assumed that the conditions have returned to normal in the city, including at this theater. It is outrageous that they are allowed to run an operation where people are being gnawed on regularly after shelling out $13 a ticket.

The bottom line is that if ONE person files a complaint about being riddled with bed bug bites that should be cause for investigation and temporary closure. An infestation at a theater can spawn many infestation elsewhere as we all could take them back to our homes.

Filthy. Disgusting. Criminal.

CHELSEA CINEMA ADMITS TO BEDBUGS IN THEATRE!

I called management to confirm the reports on this site. I was told they have a severe infestation but the bedbugs are not their fault...

They are being brought in by YOU, the movie goer!

Management refuses to take responsibility for their problem.

I did call 311 but they do not handle these type of matters. They suggested I call the Board Of Health.

I suggest everyone either stop going to this theatre or bring a can of BED BUG SPRAY

with you and spray your seat, clothing, and when you get home put your clothes in a plastic bag!

I thought I felt something crawling on me while watching Woody Allen's new movie today, but explained it away as my fearful imagination. However, after I left the theater, I found a number of insect bites on my hip that appear to be bedbug bites. I think it would be prudent not to go to this theater. It's not worth the risk of bringing these creatures into your home or spreading them to other people.


At the movies yesterday with my fam....my friend felt something crawling on her we got up to leave....before we could tell the person why we wanted a refund they asked if someone was bit. They refunded us our payment and we left. Theu should closed the theater! Theater 5 bridesmaid.....


CHELSEA CINEMA INFESTED!

DO NOT GO HERE UNTIL BOARD OF HEALTH INVESTIGATES AND DOES SOMETHING ABOUT THE BEDBUGS!






This is unbelievable. We went to see Bridesmaids at the Chelsea Cinema and sure enough bedbug bites on my boyfriend AGAIN. I told the manager who was very cagey about it. Two employees looked me in the eye and nodded their heads in approval of my complaint. They must know something. I made a loud announcement in the lobby and people were horrified and wouldn't enter the theater.

So here is the warning: Cinema 4 and 5 both have bedbugs for sure.


My boyfriend discovered 8 bites in a line on his back after watching Hangover 2 on May 27, 2011. Going again tonight. If it happens again, I may just announce it outloud in the theater..


I and 2 friends went to a 7:00pm movie Thursday February 17, 2011 at the Chelsea Clearview Cinemas on 23rd Street in Manhattan.

More than half way through the film, I went to the bathroom, and looked down to discover a HUGE engorged bedbug nearly the size of a tick on my sweater. I showed it to the manager and we were refunded.

I was furious to learn that they are only fumagating once a month. That is clearly not enough. Weekly is the minimum for that kind of traffic and cloth seats.

What is wrong with them???

They just gave us our money back and didn't make any mention to the rest of the people in theatre #2 who were attending the same picture. And just business as usual, while bedbugs are crawling all over their patrons. Just sickening.

I called the theater and they reported no bedbugs. "We haven't had bedbugs." I asked about the registry they denied. Not surprising. Hard to figure out who to trust?


June 18, 2010

Saw an evening showing of Toy Story 3. As I walked out of the theater, i noticed my right arm began to itch. Did not think much of it until later that night when I discovered 7 distinct bed bug bite marks. Disgusting. Never going back there again. EVER.


August 26, 2010 / 7:30pm - 10:30pm / Theater #4

When to see a movie at Chelsea Clearview Cinema on 23rd Street. The movie ended and on my way to the bathroom I noticed two bite marks on my left elbow. I showed my sister in law and she said the look like bite marks. I didn't make anything of it. As we were leaving my nice was looking through her bag when my sister in law noticed a brown spot inside the bag (light cream color canvas). We walked over to customer service and open the bag and the

re it was, a beg bug. The Manager was then called over, we showed her the bed bug that was in the bag and my two bite marks. One of the employee on the Cinema took a pikes of scotch tape and removed the bed bug from the bag.

We were given a full refund.I asked the Manger to please make sure she looks into the issue. She then told me that the theater is cleaned two times a month for bed bugs and they just had a meeting about beg bugs.
