recently installed with dlp for the release of Bolt.
Tonight at 10, the Mel Brooks comedy classic “History of the World Part I” is playing. Tickets are still available for this film. It’s a good movie that I saw first on VHS. Worth seeing on the big screen due to its lavish budget values.
This theater was recently installed with digital projection for the release of Bolt in 3-D, as well as several other Clearviews in the area.
Tomorrow’s new releases should appeal to mostly the teens and families that always pack this theater during the weekend. Bolt (in 2-D) and Twilight. Bolt is getting good reviews, but Twilight isn’t. I’m skipping both and saving my money for Australia, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Benjamin Button, and The Spirit. And three days from now will be two months until IMAX comes to Rockaway, upon which a re-release of The Dark Knight might play although I’m getting the Blu-Ray for Christmas (which has those IMAX scenes). As for Disney and IMAX, the Mouse House inked a deal with them to make more of its movies ready for the IMAX screen, which was last seen in Fantasia 2000.
Great story!!! Even in a slow economy, people still like to escape on large cruises like the Disney ships, which are still popular even though I don’t see a lot of ads about it on tv.
I rated it five stars since when it reopened after the renovations, it was like a new theater again.
BTW, an aide to one of my roomates who lives in town saw a late showing of QoS last night and didn’t see the trailer. I read on some movie gossip websites that the trailer didn’t get attached to nearly all of the prints for the new James Bond movie, meaning fewer screens would get the 2 minute preview. Just like with Zack and Miri before, AMC is cutting out the green/red bands before the trailers just like they used to when I went to its predecessor.
Yes they did. It was worth the price of admission alone, although I wanted to also see the new Watchmen trailer which I saw last night online on Youtube.
Hey PeterApruzzese, I saw a James Bond movie on the same showtime as the other one in your comment. Quantum of Solace, which is way shorter than Casino Royale. Lots of fast action, very little storyline. Sound was decent, although they needed to turn on the right channel for the music to be in stereo (surrounds and center channel were working and the bass too). Also, near the very end, the very bottom of the screen was a bit dark, making reading the numerous subtitles very hard although I wear glasses. Crowd was well behaved, and the food was good (I had a popcorn and diet coke which I shared with my Dad). No splices during the movie too!!!
Clearview does a classics program in which they show fully restored 35mm prints for smaller theaters and 70mm prints for bigger theaters like the Ziegfeld. Don’t forget that Bluray offers a picture that’s just as good as 35mm.
Just checked the Clearview website and the price went up to $10.50, the same price as the AMC’s evening price in Rockaway. This will also affect other clearviews around the area. The advantage is that they’ll still show upcoming movies in Digital projection as well as 3-D.
Maybe not, since this will keep attendance down at the Hall with a bad economy affecting ticket sales, but annual showings of the show on MSG as well sales of the DVD will generate some much needed cash to Cablevision, not Time-Life, as its profit slowed down at many of its businesses, including Clearview Cinemas.
That is because the screen is 1.43:1 and not 1.85. I was watching Zack and Miri at the AMC and they had scenes in which camera footage was shown in 4:3 style. That is what the IMAX system will look like when it opens at the AMC in Rockaway soon.
Just came back from a 12:55 showing of Zack and Miri…great movie. Projection was a bit blurry and there were some minor splices, and the sound mix was a bit buzzy, plus there were only like 10 or so people in one screen compared to Madagascar 2’s four screens with lots of kids and their families!!! BTW, I hope they show “The Dark Knight” in IMAX digital since it might be re-released by Warner that month for Oscar consideration.
January 23, 2009 is the date that the AMC in my town will be having one of its screens converted to the IMAX D format. Probably they’ll show The Day the Earth Stood Still since it will open more than a month before the start date of the new theater.
Hopefully their new parter IMAX stock is not going down anytime soon, as well as National Cinemedia’s stock, which is now in the dumps.
I checked AMC’s website again and they now have a section devoted to IMAX. Upon checking the coming soon section, the rollout date for the new IMAX theater is now coming out on January 23 of next year, although there is an asterisk warning that the date might change based on economic conditions and the like. I’m going to the AMC today to see Zack and Miri, the first Kevin Smith movie to be shown at this theater and the first since Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back at the old AMC. As for the IMAX, I guess The Day the Earth Stood Still will be the first one since it’s the last of 2008’s films to be shown also in IMAX.
hopefully it’s cleaner this time around!!!
I checked the AMC website and three new movies are available for advanced ticketing…all of which will not be shown in DLP. Madagascar 2 for the kiddies, Twilight for the teens, and the one I want to see, the new James Bond movie Quantum of Solace, which is the shortest Bond movie in terms of length and will be shown on multiple screens. This is the second Bond movie to play here, as Casino Royale was one of the first movies to be shown at this theater even though I saw it on DVD. It has done great business over in England and other European countries, so it should do well here in America.
I hope the new Muvico in East Rutherford has those Sony projectors.
Sounds a lot like the AMC in Rockaway, which has 35mm projectors for theatrical films and 2k projectors for NCM content with an IMAX Digital projector on the way next year. Plus it’s run by private people.
BTW, the new showplace 14 will have DLP in all of its screens for alternative content similar to NCM Fathom. CinemarkFan, just write an email to Kerasotes about expanding the theater!!! Maybe even put an IMAX screen in, although the big three chains are trying their best to do that.
Back in 1996, the Sixplex held a charity showing, which is something that it never does anymore since Clearview took over.
My friend Dan went to see Max Payne and the management escorted some rowdy 10 year olds out of the showing since it was rated PG-13. Pretty good management, I say. No wonder why this theater is always packed on Friday nights when there’s nothing else to do in downtown Newton.
