Any chance this new IMAX projector will be installed by the time Avengers Age of Ulton comes out?

Isn’t it supposed to be installed later this year? That’s what the manager told me when I saw Interstellar there last year.

any word on when laser projection comes to the imax theater?

How was the mad max trailer in 3d?

The Hobbit Marathon was entirely HFR. They showed the new Mad Max trailer before the 3rd movie.

How was hobbit 3d did they show the star wars trailer in 3d?

And yes, Interstellar was one of the greatest expieriences I ever had in a movie theatre. Awesome movie.

Kurtpvincent, I agree with you on 2 points. I saw Interstellar in 70mm film at the Ziegfeld, and I too, as a projectionist of over 38 years also love film. These days I am a stagehand, who works occasionally at a performing arts center that do movies, but they are all digital or DVD. I hate it, but its an evil I must live with.

The reason this place is popular is that they have exclusive engagements of big movies before their nationwide release. Almost every major motion picture since 1994 has been played at this theater to sold out crowds despite the high ticket prices, with the IMAX theater the real deal. I wonder if they’ll have 70mm projection for Quentin’s new movie The Hateful Eight when it opens next year.

I had the pleasure of seeing Interstellar in IMAX 70mm film. One of the greatest cinematic experiences of my life. Definitely top 10. It was my first true IMAX and I am forever changed! I also got to see the new Star Wars trailer in full 70mm IMAX. MIND BLOWN. Amazing theatre. I am going to see Inherent Vice here thursday night. Looks like it will be digital. Which I am bummed about because I am a huge film lover, but I already got my tickets. Anyhow, I love this place.

Yup. Does this theater still have SDDS equipment as well as 35mm from opening day? Also dts and dolby 5.1.

So you are saying you believe this was projected on imax film?…Everything was 2.39 until the falcon shot……$$$$ teaser…I figured there was no more space on the platter due to Interstellar’s length. But I guess now 88 secs of enough space.

Happy belated 20th anniversary to this theater!!! The teaser trailer for the Star Wars movie was shown in 3D, 2D, and imax 2d. The imax trailer ends with the millenium falcon flying against the backdrop of tie fighters, full screen style. That footage was shot on real 70mm IMAX film.

Except that the 1998 story was pure hype and not only did the trailer not improve grosses anywhere, few left after the trailer.

Starting on Black Friday, the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be shown before every movie at this theater according to AMC’s Facebook. No showtimes for the weekend until tomorrow night so tickets will probably sell fast for die hards to buy a ticket and leave the theater in droves just as they did with Phantom Menace back in 1998. This is one of 30 theaters nationwide that are screening the preview before its wide release next month as well as online.

OK the tuesday shows of hobbit 3 are listed as HFR but the marathon on monday is listed as 3d only..I sure hope its HFR for all 3…can there server hold all 3 movies at her?

celboy on November 14, 2014 at 3:20 pm

I’m sorry—I got them on movie but fandango lists it as HFR.

celboy on November 14, 2014 at 3:18 pm

So I just got fandango tix for the hobbit marathon on the 15th & it was labeled Imax HFR…Could that be a typo? I’m not sure my back can handle those seats for 3 long films.

Saw Interstellar here on 70mm IMAX. To me it did not feel like the projector was set up properly. The edges of the screen, in particular the top and bottom, were much dimmer than the center of the screen. Really only the very center seemed to be at peak brightness. You could almost see a line where the image started to fall off towards the top. As a result, despite the impressive scope of the image, the picture quality felt pretty lackluster compared to previous IMAX film screenings I’d seen at this location. (I’d agree with celboy’s earlier comment that the film in general felt dark, but it seemed to me that the fault of this was in the projection, not inherent to the film).

We were told on Saturday that the laser projectors will be installed next summer and the Lincoln Square IMAX will be one of the first to have an install. No IMAX print of the upcoming ‘Hunger Games’ film. No 15/70 mm prints of the upcoming “The Hobbit' film. No IMAX footage was shot.

celboy on November 10, 2014 at 11:59 pm

So Seattle and who else will have it next month?

moviebuff82 on November 10, 2014 at 11:10 pm

Come next year more Imax venues including this one will upgrade to laser projection. The first theatres will have it by the time the final hobbit movie is out.

Here is a video taken inside the IMAX projection room at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square, showing projectionists preparing the 70mm IMAX print of “Interstellar.”

I found interstellar a little too loud. or the choice of mix too much music. Some dialogue hard to understand.And many images very dark. Unlike dark knight where you had footage that you could appreciate the detail—helicopter gotham shots—here not so much. The aspect ratio changes bothered me more here. I sort of wonder now why not shoot the whole movie imax. I am curious to see it digital without the aspect changes.—just my opinion after first screening.
