Please enjoy this edition of the “GreenBriar Picture Show” that features an ad for Bela Lugosi in “Mark of the Vampire”
I didn’t visit the concession stand on my trip. They did re-do the lobby and moved it over to the side. I had attended a 9:30 am showing and well with having Artie’s down the street, I didn’t have need to visit.
No sign of a bar of any kind there and it might be a good thing,since I located an article about this now being called the “perfect theatre for couples”– knowing that the arm-rest in adjoining seats can be lifted up, who knows.
Here’s that linkage….
in answer to Dave’s question, there is now stadium seating and quite ample space between rows.
If you live in New York City or live any place near it I don’t understand why you wouldn’t attend a movie here than some nondescript mall googolplex.
This was one of my favorite film going experiences today. Reserved seating, plush recliners, courteous and attentive staff (when I was dashing out to refill my water bottle, someone standing on the floor I was in [bottom floor] informed my I could use the Coke FreeStyle machine and get my water from there.
It’s so enjoyable even with the reserved seating if you wish to not view previews you don’t have to. You’ve got a ticket reserved. The only downside was what I noticed when I left and headed out onto Broadway- the ticket buying process at the box office can be quite cumbersome with people picking their seat locations , so if you’re running late this could be a problem.
I used my AMC Stubs reward and bought ticket online and selected my seat that way and picked up using ticket kiosk.
Movie I attended was “The Grand Budapest Hotel"which was a really enjoyable movie- but you need to be a fan of Wes Anderson to truly enjoy it.
For a tribute to Run Run Shaw, this theatre will be open again showing films as part of the CAAM Festival
Great article in the Chronicle
Congratulations and best wishes to you and your company on this acquisition. I had noticed the sale signs were removed from the marquee and was about to post up here and wonder if any one had an update.
Please do keep us informed as to the progress and also what plans your company has that you can share with us as to the venue’s use (movies, live theatre, etc)
Circling back to Marlon’s comment above, Philly.com reports today (3/1/14) that this venue is in fact becoming a “Fork & Screen” Venue. Re-opening is expected for the mid June of 2014
Search engines are your friend… :P
The Marina is a twin, both screens are offering digital projection.
Well the Art theaters are gone. They’re cleared out, but the marquee still stands and building for rent.
Right now, this houses a Radio Shack and Subway restaurant.
this still are basic store fronts- but maybe not for much longer due to all of the development in the MidMarket region
the “bad movie nights” are continuing on Sunday evenings here. Some are quite bad (RIPD, Cutthroat Island) they offer a salute to Mel Gibson later this year including his appearance in “Hamlet”
Great article about the “return” of the Roxy
SlideShow containing photos from the interiors of the Embarcadero Cinemas
The Four-Star is still screening titles on film. Even at a time with prints it didn’t think to be film available. They currently do not have DCP capability- just a BlueRay every now and then.
January 17, 2014 will see this complex offering Cineplex’s VIP services.
VIP Cinemas are a premium entertainment experience for adults only that offer luxurious reserved seating; food and beverage service at your seat; licenced auditoriums; a licenced lounge; an in-theatre menu of specialty appetizers and entrees; and much more.”
The ticket price, a staggering C$24.99.
looks as though this is going to meet the wrecking ball.
Plans are to raze the theater for an 8 story building including condos, 7,500 square feet of retail and 24 parking spots.
Evacuation- no direct from AMC Employees- over 4000 guests turned out to a frigid New York City night- this happened at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square.
Here’s the link ( including AMC response and first hand reports) from the Huffington Post.

Story in today’s Philly.com about police needing to be called to disperse a crowd of 400-500 teenagers who gathered in this complex’s lobby around 9pm on 12/16/13.
Detective Williams had this to say …
“The kids were "just milling around the lobby area, the parking lot … just basically being slightly unruly,” Williams said. The teens were not moviegoers."

You’ll be able to see a 1936 photo of the DImond here…
Nice coverage of the rally on 12/10 by KYW Newsradio. Link here [which includes comments from our own Howard Haas]
Even though it’s really a movie theatre all that often Luis V- the former Prince Music Theatre (nee Midtown)occasionally shows movies , it is a single screen, but right now focuses on Bdway style shows and concerts.
It’s important the Boyd be saved, but also that part of Chestnut Street needs work as well.
I’m with you alps
This theater made a bit of news over the Thanksgiving weekend. It seems that due to technical difficulties, another cartoon was played. That of an adult nature. Things were shut down with in minutes. But what about the children?
Was the curtain utilized pre and post show, please Bud?
The Castro was named one of the 10 most beautiful cinemas in the world by the BBC.
