@FAShaffi if you haven’t been there before, the auditoriums on the second floor are awful – old seats, tight foot space and no stadium seating.

The Loews is the Best non IMAX Theatre 1 with Dolby Atmos. Screen 2 to 5 are good also, but the Empire screen 13 and 18 better than 2 to 5 at Lincoln Square.. Lincoln Square any screen 6 and above are small.

this has probably been asked already, but what’s the biggest non-IMAX screen in this theater? I’m trying to book Fantastic Beasts tickets and on the opening Thursday night at this theater they’re showing it in Auditorium’s 4 and 5, just wanna make sure if I see it here it won’t be on a crappy tiny sized screen

Yes My thoughts exactly. Ugh!!! Tickets for Rogue one reportedly are on sale on Tuesday 11/7 and there’s no way Lincoln Square will have Imax tickets. I’m so disgusted! :(

@Rmeister23 great great photos!!!! Thanks soooo much for taking them and sharing with us. Kind of disappointed that it looks nothing close to be done

Moviebuff82: Fantastic Beasts is being released in both IMAX 2D and 3D (Kips Bay and Penn Station have 2D, Empire 25 has 3D and my gut is Lincoln Square probably will also if it is ready in time), it seems like most Warner Bros IMAX releases do this strategy (In the Heart of the Sea, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad all split between 2D and 3D IMAX showings).

Celboy: yes those Billy Lynn tickets are for 4K/3D/120 fps showings, and apparently here and one theater in LA playing that format will get a one week exclusive window on the picture, with the wide release in standard format moved to Nov 18.

Amazing. Pretty weird that Fantastic Beasts Imax release is 2d while the 3d is only for the smaller screens.

FELLOW IMAX LOVERS OF THIS THEATER:

I snuck in today and took some pics of the theater and its construction status that I’ve uploaded in the photos section. They should be the first two showing. They don’t look anyyyywhere near done. After having talked to the general manager though, she confirmed fantastic beasts will be the first movie to run and they’ll be finished by then. They hope….

Billy Lynn Tix on fandango right now in theater 2. I am assuming this is the premium experience.

Supposedly all AMC theaters are upgrading their seating in the NYC area. If there not recliners I think they will at least have roomier and more comfortable seats than what was there before, but thats not saying much. I’m used to my legs falling asleep from being cramped in such a small space for 2 ½ hours.

No recliners in imax. They lose 400 seats for recliners. AMC Universal Hollywood that is finishing the recliner renovations. The IMAX laser auditorium has the same seats after the coversion to laser. I saw Sully there. Laser was excellent

Hey PlagasX, any updates on when you think the Imax will open? Will Imax tickets go on sale on Nov 7?

moviebuff82
moviebuff82 on October 30, 2016 at 12:12 am

i know. The one in palisades has them i think but that’s a digital imax auditorium. There’s a disclaimer on amc’s website that not all recliner theaters have them in imax theaters. At least Lincoln Square will be the first one to have laser in the NYC area.

wishing they can use recliners. Recliners + laser projectors + 100ft screen will make it a perfect auditorium lol.

Thanks for the info plagasX! That’s extremely exciting! I go to all Imax movies at the LS Imax and all non Imax movies at the AMC Dine In in NJ. This will be like the best of both worlds! Please let is know if the LS Imax will be open for Rogue One on Dec 16!!! Rumor is that tickets go on Sale Nov 7 at 7AM. I’m hoping to snag tickets! It will be amazing to see Rogue one opening night in the newly rennovated LS Imax!!!

@plagasX Quick Question if you work there. What do the seats looks like? They put new ones in I believe and want to know what type they are if possible.

Hey guys, I work at the theater. I’ve been checking in on the IMAX floor every couple of days to see how it’s coming along.. And let me tell you, it’s gonna be amazing. Don’t think it’s gonna hit that November 3rd date for sure though..which is pretty disappointing seeing how I really wanted to see Strange in Laser. Looks like I’m going to Dolby Cinema at Empire.. I’ll keep you guys updated and maybe provide some pics :)

I’m shocked that tickets are still not up for auction. Looks like Lincoln Square isn’t playing the opening weekend of Dr. Strange in Imax. That’s not a good sign for Rogue one. :(

The reviews for the movie aren’t that good, mostly viewers who complained more about the visuals than the storyline.

Darth_Vader444: Billy Lynn isn’t scheduled to be an IMAX release, so I don’t think there is any correlation (though yes, fully expect Rogue One to play in IMAX laser here).

But what it means is the regular-sized Kings screen on the second floor, which underwent the million dollar renovation to be able to host the world premiere of Billy Lynn (custom built projector, and required other auditorium changes) will also be one of a handful of screens worldwide playing it in the 120 fps/3D/4K format Ang Lee shot it in when that releases on November 11.

Darth_Vader444 on October 17, 2016 at 2:24 am

Does that mean that the Imax theater will be playing Rogue one with the new laser projectors?

My brother and sister are seeing Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk here as part of NYFF. Its the “Kings” screen which has gone through the million dollar renovation in order to be able to play it in 120 fps/3D/4K, and my brother checked with the theater and confirmed it will play in that format during its regular theatrical release (as expected given all the trouble of prepping the screen for its NYFF premiere).

I used the fan alert last year for Force Awakens. It sent me an alert the next day after tickets were all sold out. Good thing I logged into fandango before the last trailer played on Monday Night Football, and scooped up tickets. If I would have relied on the fandango alert, I would have had to go a week or two after the release date. lol
