Dolby Projector is messed up here, not sure when it went bad, it was fine a number of weeks ago, but looked in and the screen looked weird, all radioactive and weird stripe on side of the screen. Apparently it’s been like this for a few days at least. Hopefully they fix it.

Hey moviebuff, who cares? We can look it up online! Or do it the old fashioned way like looking in a newspaper! You can’t wait to reach 4000 posts, huh?

This weekend 12 strong is in Imax while jumanji continues its streak in dolby. I wonder when AMC will upgrade it to dolby 3d.

During the showing of last jedi in imax when the movie started the lights were left on so some moviegoers addressed management to turn it off which they did!

Star wars is playing only in imax and regular while the commuter is in dolby. Looks like black panther is in 3d and regular but not imax.

I think amc needs to upgrade the imax projector along with the seats since its been almost a decade since the conversion.

Tonight it’s not crowded . Because of the snow.

Wow, they pulled Last Jedi from Dolby here for Jumanji? Last Jedi Dolby was packed here every time I looked for tickets, even today still, every good seat sold out. Seems like a bizarre decision. Just like how they got rid of TCM Classics, all of the showings for everything, even though they had the best sales for sales of any theater in the entire region.

Do they take cash or credit? How about wooden nickels or bitcoin?

Starting with the opening of the last jedi, this theater is now selling merchandise in their AMC Store.

When I saw titanic back in 97 the loews in wayne was mobbed and I enjoyed it . Projection was good and sound excellent. Ill wait until it hits 4k blu ray soon as I own the 1999 DVD.

Saw Titanic and the Dolby 4K presentation is pretty incredible. It was a long time ago, but I don’t recall seeing nearly this level of detail back in 1997 when I saw it here. The Dolby screen is also a good deal larger than the largest screen they had back in 1997.

Lines a bit shorter though haha. They were insane in 1997 here! Week after week wrapped way around the outer mall, way back, on some days almost all the way around to the far end of the back, crazy. Nothing ever like that other than for Star Wars.

The HDR was pretty good too, I don’t think the film version had quite this ability back then. Maybe some of the dark scenes at the end had some brighter areas seeming a little too bright, but whatever. Mostly it was all spectacular presentation all-around every which way. Maybe those who saw it in 70mm back when had something beginning to be like this, but this seems way beyond what I recall seeing in the 1997 original film release or later digital re-release. It did make it almost feel a little like it was something you hadn’t seen before (although maybe for those who did manage to see it in 70mm the difference would not be quite as huge, by ‘97 70mm was already pretty rare).

Perhaps moviebuff82 should get a job at this theatre! He could be the head seat scrubber and spill picker upper. Then he wouldn’t have the time to post nonsense on this forum anymore.

82: I notice from comments on this and other pages that you are a big fan of recliners. Think about this for a moment. If those dirty floors and cupholders bother you just imagine how long it has been, if ever, since the recliner you are sunk down into has been cleaned.

Regarding cleanliness I think they need to take care of cleaning spilt popcorn and cupholders filled with napkins at the dolby cinema. Every showing its dirty.

Titanic is returning to this theater for one weekend only in dolby 2d.

This weekend marks 11 years since it opened. I wonder how long the lease is for this theater compared to the old amcs in and out of the mall . Ever since they changed the projection and revamped two auditoriums and raised prices it has made profits despite declining sales of tickets. Now I hear that amc will sell merchandise at this and other theatres.

‘Thank You For Your Service’: AMC Theatres giving free tickets to veterans, active-duty military

Free tickets valid for Oct. 26 showing of new film…

A day before the new movie “Thank You For Your Service” opens in theaters nationwide, veterans and active-duty military will be able to see it first for free.

Universal Pictures, the studio behind “Thank You For Your Service,” and AMC Theatres, which operates hundreds of cinemas across the United States, are offering 10,000 free tickets to servicemembers this week.

The film, written and directed by the writer of 2014’s “American Sniper,” stars Miles Teller as one of several American soldiers returning home from Iraq and trying to blend back into civilian life. “Thank You For Your Service” is set to open nationwide on Oct. 27.

A free ticket will be given to the first 25 servicemembers who show a valid military ID at each AMC theater on Thursday Oct. 26. The tickets will be valid for preview screenings of the film scheduled for 7 p.m. on Oct. 26.

“We are honored that up to 10,000 U.S. veterans and active servicemembers will be among the first to experience this riveting film,“ said Universal Pictures Executive Vice President Jim Orr in a press release.

Directed by Jason Hall and based on the book by David Finkel, “Thank You For Your Service” also stars Amy Schumer, Joe Cole and Haley Bennett.

Call ahead to your local AMC theater to see if it’s participating.

moviebuff82, why are you posting links to sites that don’t work and nobody really care about? Is it all about your quest to reach 3000 posts??

And it was vibrating and rattling the roof and other parts of the structure like crazy.
