Murder on the Orient Express is in 70mm in aud 2?
Justice League is in 70mm in Loews aud? I don’t see that at AMC website or elsewhere.
“Justice League” in 70mm here this weekend.
I visited this theater for the 1st time on Saturday. In the historic auditorium (# 1) I saw “Murder on the Orient Express” shown in 70mm. It is only being shown in 70mm in LA & NYC (including in NY at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square but when I clicked online, not in the large Loews auditorium there). The ticket lobby ceiling is gloriously ornate. The main lobby or foyer as described in the Intro (I helped with the text) & the historic auditorium is, as Ross indicated in the Intro, like a Golden Age Hollywood movie palace! The stadium seated auditorium provided for great sightlines. Surround sound was very good. There are also some classics shown on some Wed evenings, sometime in 35mm. This 2017 article has great photos https://www.6sqft.com/the-urban-lens-inside-the-village-east-cinema-one-of-nys-last-surviving-yiddish-rialto-theaters/
I’ve added now to the photo gallery here my own photo of the concession foyer. It looks much better now especially without the terrible metal trough thing that ran along the ceiling.
You might try harder to spell. “Rows” not rolls. Haas not Hass.
Norton is saying that most of the seats at the Citywalk auditorium with 70mm have poor sightlines. Not a matter to be solved with seat reservations.
Scott, what do you mean by the “Mozart”? I can’t find that as a historic theater, by googling. Please provide a link or better, a link to this website’s page.
At Facebook, Vintage Philadelphia, Don Mason posted this-
The Aldine Theater became Cinema 19. When the Woodstock film opened in 1970, I recall standing in the long line to see the film. A great cinematic experience back then. Groundbreaking use of the split screen. It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary
I asked in person yesterday. Just cleaning, no major changes (thankfully).
from Facebook page-

I had recently seen those renderings online. Inside, nothing appears in those renderings from the movie theater.
September 20 thru Oct 1, 2nd annual 70mm & Widescreen Festival

JodarMovieFan, what does VFX mean? Close Encounters original release was 35mm blown up to 70mm, not filmed in 65mm.
My article on this year’s 70mm series.
Philadelphia Inquirer article today features the success of this theater & a photo of huge curved marquee http://www.philly.com/philly/business/movies-and-shopping-a-fix-for-downtown-philly-its-a-hit-in-stone-harbor-20170831.html
I hope that a curtain (tab) will still be used with movie presentations in the main auditorium.
“Close Encounters of the Third Kind 40th Anniversary” (the new 4k restoration only in theaters for one week) is being shown now here. So far as I recall, the 1st classic in many years!
article in yesterday Sunday Inquirer
reopened, 220 seats, gutted & rebuilt for plays, concerts, musicals, other events, by nonprofit Theatre Collaborative of South Jersey which purchased it last year.
This summer’s 70mm classic film festival is ongoing with another screening today of beautiful new print of “Lawrence of Arabia” I attended yesterday afternoon’s sold out show! The film schedule is on the museum’s website.
Mike, you are referring to a theater in your home state rather than K of P?
One of the highlights of this year’s 70mm festival will be what seems to be the only surviving 70mm print of “Sleeping Beauty” Classic movies filmed in 65mm shown in what will likely be great prints will include 2001, Lawrence of Arabia, Khartoum, It’s a Mad (etc) World, Spartacus, West Side Story, Patton, Tron, and Baraka. Vertigo wasn’t exactly 65mm but is another classic filmed especially well, with a great print. More recent films entirely or partly filmed in 65mm include The Hateful Eight and Interstellar. 35mm blowups to 70mm (often including more surround sound than regular 35mm) include Top Gun, The Dark Crystal, The Thing, Aliens, Star Trek VI, Ghostbusters, Wonder Woman, Inherent Vice, and The Untouchables. If I have anything inaccurate, feel free to say so.
Masking aka matting screens is no longer being done this year, having sometimes not been done last year. Auditoriums 1 thru 5 are set to “flat” which means “scope” screens are letterboxed horizontally. Auditorium 6 is set for “scope”
The new movie “Detroit” had its world premiere here July 25.
Masking is not used in the RPX (a remodel, set to flat), and I haven’t been in the Imax, but masking is used in the other auditoriums here, thankfully. I’m not purchasing a ticket anywhere if masking isn’t used for my screening.
As an official volunteer, I’ve often added screen sizes to the Introductions of our pages, especially when I see the most credible proof, such as the theater’s official website providing specifications so feel free to link such information -copy & paste from the link & mention the source- in a comment on the relevant theater page. I’ll often see such pages for well known movie theaters. This site wishes to be specific for each theater.
