CapnRob commented about Avatar might be rereleased this fall in a longer version on Mar 18, 2010 at 4:11 pm

How about 2D and 40 minutes shorter? I can’t imagine what you would ad to the story that could pull it out of it’s ass dragging slow pace.

I visited the Cinerama since the remodel. What a cool theater! Even when it’s showing 70mm.

It kills me, here in Denver, that somebody didn’t have the foresight to treat the Cooper with the same respect.

CapnRob commented about Midnight Movie showing advice on May 7, 2009 at 12:29 pm

I can remember when Boulder, Colorado would have 6 to 8 midnight movies on a Friday night. I have trouble imagining 1 midnight movie, now days. When you’ve got 7.1 surround and HDTV (and you can watch in your underwear) it’s hard to sell going out for a movie… and that is a drag.

Not to take anything away from Miami but I’m bitting my nails waiting for Denver’s turn. BTW – AlAlvarez, I liked those lobby pictures connected to the Sheridan link.

Sorry I guessed the seating so poorly. I just remember that it seemed really tiny.

Here’s a link to the photo http://www.dogmatches.com/cr/artcinema.jpg

CapnRob commented about Admissions up, concessions down during recession on Apr 4, 2009 at 7:59 pm

Theaters claim to make their profit from concession sales but $5 for a popcorn is nuts. The last concessions I enjoyed were from the Egyptian in Portland, OR. In-house brewed beer and pizza (and it was cheap)!

CapnRob commented about Documentary about the oldest movie theatre west of the Mississippi now on DVD on Mar 16, 2009 at 5:22 pm

This is your marketing plan? No pictures. No link to a preview. Not even a tease. As Dr. Evil once said, “Come on people, throw me a bone”. Give us something the peak our curiosity.

Respectfully,

Pardon me for all these long links.

I’ve seen pictures of the Curren (2034 14th St) theater which became the Boulder theater.

This was the Isis at 2016/2020 14th St.

The Art theater was originally the Varsity theater.

The Fox took over the original Tulagi building in 1950. Here’s a story about the bar and it mentions early history.

The U/A Regency is now the Foundry. It closed in the late ‘80’s or early '90’s.

I hope this helps clear a little up.

The bar in the picture posted “Ken MC” is actually next door to the Fox theater.
