Speaking of TLJ, does anyone know how long it will play here on the IMAX screen?

“just one little note for people (like me) seeing The Last Jedi in IMAX here this weekend. While the film did use IMAX cameras for select sequences, it will be a locked scope presentation, and the screen will not be filled for any of those sequences.

Apparently, the director found the aspect ratio switches distracting when he was finishing the movie, and people who’ve seen the film in the UK mentioned there are no IMAX aspect ratio switches."

too bad they didn’t at least keep in one or two, in TFA, I thought it was spectacular when it expanded

Hello-

if the free The Phantom Thread program is 24 pages that must be a record for a free giveaway brochure.

Just a side note. The Phantom Thread booklets are on a table outside the Kings Theatre and next to the door leading to the projection room. If your lucky you might see me as you enter. I always come down to refill my soda.

Not sure if it’s the flagship but many premieres do happen here, especially after the Zigfield closed. Just recently Molly’s Game had it’s premiere here. Other movies like Dunkirk, The Mummy, Rough Night, Ghost in the Shell, a bunch of Netflix movies and many others had their premieres here just last year. (Note: not all were world premieres, some were North America premieres.)

The fact that this theater has numerous film projectors, a unique IMAX, a comfortable position on Broadway and a shape which allows for the building of tents as well as for special set-ups for press and interviews inside certaintly makes it a very attractive place for premieres. Sometimes studios just use the theater to shoot interviews and do press there. It’s a very popular location by them.

Is the Lincoln square theater still the flagship location for AMC for world premieres ?

Thanks, BigJoe. The Phantom Thread ebay link describes that booklet as 24 pages. The Hateful Eight program that I have is 14 pages, counting from cover to back. All of these current booklets (Victoria and Abdul included) being discussed have been free, whereas in the original Roadshow days those souvenir programs were purchased. It is really is delightful that studios are going to the effort to provide these nice materials for moviegoers.

People are selling the brochure already. Here’s what it looks like.

Hello-

the brochure handed out free when I saw Victoria and Abdul at the Paris was 4 pages but elegantly and beautifully designed.

From what I’ve read elsewhere (email from AFI Silver), The Phantom Thread program is freely handed out. I attended last weekend at Paris of Victoria & Abdul but did not know of any program. What did Victoria & Abdul program look like? a real program like The Hateful Eight one? or a couple page brochure?

Hello-

do you mean The Phantom Thread had an actual souvenir program for purchase or was it really a free brochure like the one the Paris handed out during the run of Victoria and Abdul?

Movie buff – in this day and age 25 is old. Seems as though they are leveled around this time. The Brookhaven Multiplex on Long Island was history after 18 years; the Commack Multiplex made it a bit longer. The Green Acres, Sunrise and Patchogue Multiplexes were also leveled. Shore in Huntington and the Lynbrook and Southampton are tear down and rebuilds. The Fantasy in Rockville Centre and the Roosevelt Field were gutted and rebuilt some years ago. To a large degree AMC did that with the Glen Cove this past year. Have to see what happens with the three older multiplexes, two in Farmingdale and the Regal Ronkonkoma. Westbury and Deer Park are less than a dozen years old.

Apparently the Phantom Thread 70mm print was “only” 4k so it might have looked a bit underwhelming compared to other 70mm prints which were higher resolutions. Still drew HUGE crowds here and as mentioned, it comes with a program.

If they would renovate this theater it would probably be without stadium seating, as (to my knowledge) these types of auditoriums here with “direct entrance” wouldn’t work for stadium seating. (Correct me if I’m wrong please) But AMC 84th st for instance has recliners without stadium seating so I think they should renovate anyways.

They need to renovate for next year when this theater turns 25.

NYer, I was not there on Saturday. I think the print is ok considering it was blown up from 35MM. I have one of those programs. Nice touch. I’m back in there on Tuesday.

mrkp what did you think of the print? I was kinda disappointed. Saw it Satyurday. Grateful for no trailers, AMC is notorious for twenty minutes of trailers and I don’t mean the pre-show. Probably combo of no 70MM trailers available and because this is an Oscar qualifying run and the distributor doesn’t want distractions. Outside the auditorium was a table with a free gorgeous heavy stock programs highlighting the fashions with the centerfold with the film logo and 70MM special presentation.

Not going to give spoilers but two complete strangers stopped me on the way out and wanted to discuss the film.

The theater however is looking a wee rundown. Definitely needing a good make-over.

70MM extended for a third week.

This theater is a much nicer theater for indie films as it has all the bells and whistles of a modern multiplex.

Hello-

I was shocked to learn the nearby Lincoln Plaza Cinema is closing at the end of January because the landlord say construction work is necessary on the 30 year old building. the article i read said the Lincoln Plaza was also getting competition from the more recent Bruin Monroe Film Center opposite Julliard. i have been to both theaters and don’t remember the 6 year old Bruin Monroe Film Center ever playing what can best be called major low budget indies and foreign films. as an example- I don’t remember the Bruin Monroe Film Center ever playing a low budget indie or foreign film on the same level as the Lincoln Plaza’s current films- Mudbound, Wonder Wheel or Darkest Hour.

moviebuff82 https://www.amctheatres.com/dolby I assume your talking about this format vs IMAX. Dolby has the advantage of the Video wall entrance and the souround sound being in the recliner as those Auditorums use an Dolby designed seat and not the normal AMC recliners. you cant see it here in dolby though the only open NYC location for Dolby cinema is the AMC Empire 25 with AMC Loews 34th Street 14 listed as coming soon.

https://www.amctheatres.com/amc-store it looks like this is one of the theaters AMC put a movie collectable store in.

I saw “Star Wars:The Force Awakens” in a commercial movie theater, not in an Imax, so I can’t compare as they have different format sound systems. The new Star Wars movie is fun.

How was the sound mix compared to Awakens?
