if you agree, then why do you continue to contribute to the further pollution of this board?

I have to say that I cant disagree with you folks. Me personally, I can care less about all this laser stuff, etc, but these people with the which seat in which row and this and that. Whatever happened to just going to the movies, watch the damn thing, and enjoy it? I guess I’m just really getting old or I missed something along the way.

I’m with you, but as long as the asinine posts continue here or the Lincoln Square board continues as a personal dialogue between 3 people, I’m going to continue.

Time for those sorts of comments to go here

hdtv267 is not the annoying one here, although his responding to every asinine post can get a little tiring.

This is not a blog about current attractions, ticket sales, etc. Please find somewhere else to discuss those matters…

“MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE 2”, “GLADIATOR” and “THE PERFECT STORM” all out-grossed “X-MEN” that summer.

stop annoying us, hdtv267. When this theater opened back in April of 2000, the top grossing movie for the summer of that year was X-Men at the Empire since it played only there and not Loews Ewalk.

So- what exactly do you want someone to do for you about this on here? Seriously.

Your first problem was going to the box office. You actually thought they’d be selling tickets there? LOL.

How about the “Now Open” ad posted on photos page 11…?

Any grand opening ads? I remember hearing about this theater via the New York Times 16 years ago. It’s still the largest theater in the NYC area and with the most screens.

Yes Force Awakens sold more tickets than Avatar and lasted longer here until April of this year.

I think the double bill of Fists of Fury and Five Fingers of Death did pretty well back in the day…

This theatre?

you have one specific theatre in mind- there are 25 of them.

Can you please be exact with your request? Do you mean the current incarnation of the venue as operated by AMC or of the older Empire before it’s moved.

Moviebuff82- IMAX has said they’ve started developing a laser system for the smaller screens, though there is no timeframe given for when it would be ready or any guarantee it would be put here early on (Lincoln Square waited two years), so I wouldn’t expect it for a long while.

As for highest grossing movie ever here, I think it would likely be The Force Awakens (#1 domestic film ever unadjusted for inflation, as well as the top adjusted gross since this theater’s been open, and it played to big crowds here well into it’s release) with Avatar probably the only other possible alternative.

If the laser at AMC Lincoln Square is a success will this theater get it? It’s the second busiest IMAX in the NYC area.
