PICKERINGTON, OH — Following in the footsteps of their property in North Columbus, Marcus Theatres is building a separate new 400 seat theater adjacent to their Pickerington Cinemas. The theater will house a significantly larger screen than normal along with luxury seating.
For an extra 50 cents a ticket, moviegoers will be able to enjoy an extra-wide screen at Marcus Cinema Pickerington beginning next spring.
Marcus Theatres Corp. said Wednesday it will house a 70-foot wide UltraScreen — nearly three times wider than regular screens — in a building adjacent to its 16-screen Marcus Cinema Pickerington.
For all the details, read the article in the Columbus Bizjournals.
The only way to bring them back to theatres in with super large screens, too many mutiplexes gives us TV size pictures. Better films would help but take the Poseidon remake the only reason I went to see it was because it played in IMAX.
To look good on such a large screen, will a film have to be 70mm?
