35 years ago tomorrow at midnight marked the first ever showing of return of the Jedi in 70mm six track dolby stereo. It became the fastest star wars movie to earn $250 million during its original run.

Yes. The Dolby digital was soon retired when the digital projection equipment was installed.

I don’t mind scratches. I remember going to see reissues of movies like Star Wars and countless Disney films and those had some scratches even if the film was restored. 2001 marks one of the first instances that a reissued film is being shown the way Kubrick intended it to be after the world premiere for theatrical release. Remember Kubrick cut about 20 or so minutes from the footage days after a few people saw the original version so that the pace sped up a bit. When i first saw 2001 on vhs it cut straight to Jupiter (this was from a 1980 print) and didn’t have the entrace music and intermission music. The digital HD version that i bought on Itunes includes that and also has the film in its 2:20.1 ratio. This films was one of the last pre-MPAA rating movies before the fall of 1968 when the ratings went into effect. 2001 would soon be rated G, just like the first Planet of the Apes movie, so that people of all ages could see this masterpiece. What Nolan is doing to this 50th anniversary reissue is quite unique. I wish more theatres would show this 70mm unrestored version.

http://www.cmdgroup.com/building-types/movies/new-jersey/projects/1000428238/ here’s a link to the theater back when loews cineplex was working on it years before the amc merger. I saw avengers in regular format in theater #7 near the Imax. Decent crowd. Seats are still uncomfy despite moving my feet up and down. One thing I noticed during the preshow is that people can use their phones and play AR games with an app which is pretty cool. The masking was a bit off though yet the projection and sound mix was great.

This coming December 16th will mark 30 years since it opened. Why was the project delayed?

Is it the best indie multiplex ever? The Angelika is showing its age and IFC Center is struggling…

They don’t accept moviepass here compared to AMC in Rockaway which is a shame.

15 years ago this year the Best Buy opened where the outers used to be and has done good business even with Amazon ruling the roost.

Isn’t it weird that Avengers is coming out a week earlier than the first week of May? Disney made that move due to huge demand and a worldwide day and date release. Not only that, but they warn moviegoers not to post any spoilers online. Judging by the showtimes, this movie is going to be a huge hit, especially with Imax (where it was shot on) and dolby. Hopefully it has legs like Black Panther, as Black Panther is the longest running movie at this theater this year.

One of the few theatres in the area that showed Tron in 70mm during its theatrical run.
