Gemini Man might very well be in the 1% given how it was shot.

to digital3d- I wouldn’t mind seeing GM in the Dolby
Theater but without 3D. 3D is just a way of squeezing more
$$$ out of moviegoers. it fact 3D does nothing for 99%
of the films show that way.

Many theaters will show it in 60fps 3D, which is not what was shot but still HFR.

2K and pillarboxing suck but the 120fps and Dolby 3D make it worth it to see the movie in the Dolby here.

I tried to watch that movie but it was so boring. Life of pi never had that issue. It’s as if ang Lee was trying to be like Peter Jackson when he made the hobbit trilogy which is no LOTR.

bigjoe59 on October 9, 2019 at 2:52 pm


a question for people knowledgeable with projection. what was the point of Ang Lee shooting the film the way he did if no theater can in fact show it that way?

it s kind of like his last film Billy Lynn’s Long Half Time Walk. without the high frame rate projection there was nothing special about it. it was just a average film about a young man adjusting to home life after returning from war.

My location will have GM in 2d Dolby 4k at 24fps with laser and atmos and the picture will fill the screen like joker which was amazing in dolby.

digital3d on October 9, 2019 at 2:30 pm

The Dolby here will have Gemini Man in 120fps 3D with Laser and Atmos, that’s the closest you’ll get. It’ll be one of 14 Dolby locations nationwide to show it that way.

But try to sit in the center due to the 3D and pillarboxing.

apparently very few theaters in the entire U.S. can show Gemini Man exactly the way Ang Lee shot it? but apparently some theaters will come damn close. which auditorium in this theater will show the film as close as possible to the way Ang Lee shot it?

bigjoe59 and moviebuff82, while the movie made a boatload of money, what bigjoe said is exactly what Warner Bros said after they cancelled my 70MM run in early July. They thought it would be a dog and didn’t want to spend money hiring specialized projectionist like myself. The theatres that are running it in 70MM have their own in house operators.

I disagree it’s a classic

I saw Joker at the Valencia auditorium this past Sat. 10/5. I thought it ties with Suicide Squad as the worst, most lackluster most disappointing comic book derived film ever. I can’t be the only one with this reaction.

Joaquin Phoenix this weekend made an appearance at the Imax theater during a showing of Joker and everyone was happy. Did anyone go through security just to see this movie?

I just posted pictures of the different screens on the main floor. The plaque for the Valencia was missing and AMC removed the LOEWS plaque when they went DOLBY. Unfortunately don’t have them for the downstairs screens.

Don’t like seeing movies downstairs because when AMC went digital, the masking for FLAT films is awful and the manager said they don’t have curtains to cover it. When Loews ran 35MM film downstairs, FLAT films weren’t a problem.

Saw “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” in the Paradise, the masking was no problem and looks like the sound was Dolby Digital. Screens 6 to 12 were originally SDDS and Dolby SR when it open in 1994.

Dolby Digital was in Loews since 1994 and and added to screens 2 and 5 10 years later, hopefully Dolby Digital is now in all.

Does anyone know if any house have Dolby 7.1 in 2 thru 12? Loews was very big at SDDS in 1994. ,

If you’re trying to order tickets online for this theater, the site and app are down right now for AMC as a result of moviepass going away.

Actually The Joker will be in 70mm at City Cinemas Village East and at City Cinemas 1,2,3.

markp on September 3, 2019 at 1:02 pm

xbs2034, it will only be in regular 70MM at the village east only. Warner Bros had it booked at the E Walk and here but cancelled it. I know this because I was to be the projectionist at the E Walk.

I hope amc puts in leather seats like they re doing at Empire

bigjoe59 on September 2, 2019 at 3:49 pm


i happen to like the two Fantastic Four films that Chris Evans made. so hopefully other Evans devotes can answer a question. i recently bought the disc set with both films on separate discs but the discs contain no extras except audio commentaries. if i had bought the films on the separate discs did they have extras? thanks for any help.

xbs2034 on August 28, 2019 at 9:50 pm

I’m pretty sure Joker will be in regular 70mm film and IMAX laser. That’s what WB did for Kong: Skull Island, Wonder Woman, and Justice League, and when they make IMAX 70mm prints recently, they advertise “IMAX film” (mentioned on the trailers for Nolan’s Dunkirk and Tenet).

moviebuff82 on August 28, 2019 at 4:36 pm

Just saw the joker trailer and at the end it says it’s coming out in Imax, Dolby Cinema, and 70mm film. Could this movie be shown in 70mm imax or just laser imax? I know a bunch of the AMC imaxes will have to be renovated before advance tickets go on sale as It Chapter 2 might be the last imax release to be shown in the 10 year old projectors.

bigjoe59 on August 22, 2019 at 3:37 pm


thanks to Peter A. for the info. also have you watched the Blu-ray disc of Endgame yet? if you do I’m sure you will agree with me the extras are extremely disappointing and could have fit on the disc with film.

PeterApruzzese on August 22, 2019 at 1:16 pm

bigjoe –

moviebuff82 on August 21, 2019 at 3:59 pm

I think it’s the same on the digital release

bigjoe59 on August 21, 2019 at 3:58 pm


does anyone know of a site that has reviews and discussions on dvds and blu-ray discs? the reason i ask is simple. recently i bought the blu-ray disc of Endgame. the film on my widescreen 1080p LED t.v. was !!WOW!! now since the extras were on a separate disc i figured they would be first rate and of a nice running time. guess what? if you combined the running time of all the extras I’m edging the bet you could have included them on the disc with the film. not only that but in the extras there’s virtually nothing about the actual making of Endgame. probably the most disappointing extras I’ve come across on a blu-ray disc.
