A Sunday night evacuation of the AMC Lincoln Square movie theater was sparked by an apartment fire at the connected condominium known as The Millennium Tower (101 West 67th Street), where past and current residents include celebrities such as Alan Alda, Howard Stern, Tony Danza and Regis Philbin.

Theater staff members have a meeting after the evacuation.


The fire took place in a 55th floor penthouse apartment. The FDNY were called at 7:37 p.m. and the fire was deemed under control at 8:32 p.m. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is currently unknown.

Members of the press set up as firefighters enter the building lobby.

Building residents wait to get back inside.

Firefighters also entered the lobby of The Park Millennium, located next door at 111 West 67th Street.


FDNY vehicles surround the building, which takes up the entire block between West 67th and 68th streets and from Broadway to Columbus Avenue.

We’ll provide updates if we learn more.
