HowardBHaas commented about Dolby reveals theaters set to install Atmos on Jun 19, 2012 at 5:50 pm

I like movie theater surround sound! though not from adjacent auditoriums.

HowardBHaas commented about Dolby reveals theaters set to install Atmos on Jun 19, 2012 at 10:12 am

I found a video online explaining the process. In theory it is a fantastic improvement. But each speaker will have different sound. So what happens when a speaker breaks? Movie theater chains don’t always keep in great order their existing speakers….

It opened for me, and sometimes, yes.

Open as you will see by clicking on the theater’s website found under Related Websites.

Silver’s description of that special tour sounds great! That sounds like the kind of tour the new theater owners ought to offer such as one day a week.

Yes, my one experience would lead to me to conclude that bigjoe59 is correct. Also, thanks to Al & King Biscuits for corrections above. The Intro will be amended within a day or two.

Does Silverspot have any US locations other than the one in Naples FL that is on this site?

HowardBHaas commented about Charles Cinema on May 19, 2012 at 5:12 pm

The Music Hall wasn’t showing movies on a daily basis in the 1980s. I’m started to read your comment that the Cinema 57 had a larger screen. I don’t recall what kind of movies they were showing. I don’t see photos online that depict a huge screen. I only see the few at cinematour. The best screen that I enjoyed was the Charles.

HowardBHaas commented about REMEMBERING CINERAMA (Part 49: Cleveland) on May 18, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Thanks, I expected it would be only in person. Randolph would be interesting, and 1963 earlier than I would’ve figured but won’t help in Boyd’s restoration. Oh, well.

There’s a Cinerama archive at UCLA? I’m curious what might be there re Philadelphia’s Boyd Theatre. Architectural plans for conversion of existing theater? photos?

I took this photo from the balcony.

Moviemanforever, “1996?” It was demolished 1988.

HowardBHaas commented about Charles Cinema on May 11, 2012 at 6:05 pm

When I was at Boston U School of Law (1982 to 1985), it WAS the largest screen in Boston!

HowardBHaas commented about AMC said to be talking to Chinese buyer on May 9, 2012 at 4:33 am

Yikes! The AMC Uptown in DC often has world premieres of movies, including ones about US military and attended by government members. In China, there is repression. Will the Chinese censor the movies in US theaters or abroad? Few people would be alarmed if a British or Dutch company bought a major US movie exhibitor, but a Chinese company?

Maintenance of the existing marquee, as I will mention soon in a Weekly Update email (freely available from Friends of the Boyd)

that’s an article about new theater to be built on site.

I’m sure it must be a wonderful book.

HowardBHaas commented about Another Manhattan theater bites the dust: UA East 85th Street on Apr 10, 2012 at 10:33 am

This closure was a shame. Not living in NYC, I went there once. The article is correct in that it was not as nice as the Tower East. It was still nice. Long live the Ziegfeld, the Paris, the City Cinema 1, 2, 3, the “new” Beekman twin, the UA 64th St (former Gemini) and others!

HowardBHaas commented about New Metro Twin on Apr 6, 2012 at 5:21 am

I had previously linked them, but today I’ve added to the photo section my half dozen photos of the ornate auditorium when still open, before gutted.

HowardBHaas commented about Rio Cinema on Apr 5, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Yes, here in the States I’m watching now that Whitechapel episode. It also filmed in the theater’s back and in the interior, too, in the auditorium and stairway.

HowardBHaas commented about United Artists 64th & Second on Mar 29, 2012 at 4:28 am

Regal’s website has “Stadium” in the theater’s title. How did stadium seating change the auditoriums' looks, screen sizes, etc?

Luis, do you mean info on proposed hotel? There is a very fine Introduction above with history of the theater.

Showtime TV’s “Brotherhood” series Season 1, episode 7 has a story plot with a fictional account of the saving of this theater.

As of today, the Narberth’s 2nd auditorium was converted to digital projecton.
