Didn’t Roxy Music name themselves after this venue?

I heard that “Cats” will become a feature film soon, this was old news from awhile ago…should be pretty interesting. They should have the US premiere here.

Was the Capitol one of Loews' flagship theatres?

Cineplex Odeon, under Universal, helped make Jurassic Park a top draw in DTS in their theaters, including the Route 4 Tenplex and the Ziegfeld theater.

I know. Remember when showmanship was great years ago?

I agree. First it was called Loew’s when it owned MGM until it sold off the studio. Then in the late 60s new owners took over the company and removed the ‘ and became a huge conglomerate that would soon sell the theater division to Coke, who would sell it to sony, then have it merged with cineplex, then filed for bankruptcy protection while under ownership by Onex before AMC took over. It’s like when General Cinema was dying until AMC came in and ate it up. Same for Carmike before it became AMC Classic.

I guess this theater didn’t last as long as its bigger competitor.

Did they reduce the number of screens to 7? Why? I used to go there years ago back in 2002 when I saw Minority Report with my mom and had a great time there.

Had this theater remained open, it would’ve become an RKO-Stanley Warner, then a Cineplex Odeon, then a Loews Cineplex, and finally an AMC.

The thing is you can’t use the A-List on fathom events. This weekend every marvel movie will be shown in the imax auditorium including for the first time iron man and incredible hulk. Mission impossible is back in dolby for a few weeks until the nun comes out before the predator comes out in both dolby and imax. Pretty soon amc a list and Sinemia will be the only choices as movie pass will go extinct.

It’s been 8 years next fall since AMC ditched film for digital, and the quality has improved somewhat.

And in December, Schindler’s List returns in 4k Dolby Cinema. I saw this movie on DVD as I was a bit too young to see it, i saw pieces of it when it was on NBC for its TV premiere and i fell asleep. This was a well shot and well paced movie that deserved to win the oscar for best picture. The little girl who is the only character to be in color would become the main star in Alice in Wonderland, Mia Wasawoka or what’s her name. I actually don’t go to the fathom events, as those are more expensive than a regular show and i hear reports of the satellite feed not working. The price for fathom is a bit higher than regular but not as much as Dolby and Imax and 3d. I think AMC needs to add reserved seating to its 14 theatres in the near future so that they can control the crowds better. The displays used for the reserved seating are kinda small but I always sit in the reserved seat next to my dad and stay there if he has to go to the bathroom or get a snack, and vice versa.

You should be in the projectionists hall of fame mark. You always take good care of the prints and the studios want them as clean as possible so that they come in handy if the master print is damaged due to weather or fire as was the case with the Universal Hollywood fire years ago which consumed some film reels; luckily Universal had them on digital backup.

I heard that the digital HD imax version of 2001 was decent based on what others said. This release is the widest it has ever had since it was reissued in the 1970s. The running time of the movie is mostly composed of the feature film, plus the entracte intermission, and end music. I’ll probably wait until it hits 4k bluray and buy it for cheap…i own 2001 on itunes and the quality of the master is pretty good.

I can’t wait to preorder this on google play since i own the Itunes version that is based on the 2007 HD master used for the bluray release. It’s worth watching i tell ya. As for the Dark knight, the DVD release of the two disc set has the imax scenes in its imax ratio on disc 2 of the set, while the bluray shows the cropped image used for the digital imax release. the bluray of batman begins has the dark knight prologue in its imax format.
