WHAT! THE! BLANK?!?! That’s just INSANE!

Oh well…IMAX trumps Dome all day every day for me. :)

The Cinerama Dome and the Chinese main theatre are both getting Gravity this Friday. Looks like the Chinese can book IMAX same time a film is at the Dome. I know Terminator Salvation was at the Chinese and Arclight at the same time, but not in the Dome.

According to the Flicker Alley website, there will be special events starting about Oct. 22 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Dome. Anyone heard anything about this ?

I was just going to comment on that Chris. I noticed it when I saw Elysium and this Sunday I saw Worlds End and it was really noticeable. Not sure I am a fan of the new masking, I think it makes the screen seem a bit smaller.

No one seems to have reported this yet, but they have finally followed the advice of the wise and raised up the bottom left/right masking on the Dome screen – significantly diminishing the effects of the ultra curved screen and preventing that goofy effect where low center titles/logo bylines/etc. get swallowed up beneath the masking. Saw and confirmed this after seeing “The World’s End” on Saturday 8/24.

There are very few 70mm showings these days. The Academy ran what they called “The Last 70mm Film Festival” last year. The Cinerama theater in Seattle is slated to run a festival with some 70mm this fall, The fact is there are very few theaters in the country that can run 70mm reel to reel and the owners of existing prints will not allow those prints to be run on a platter. The Somerville Theater in Somerville Massachusetts has a screen equipped to run 70mm http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/483 and they are planing a festival sometime in the future. The Egyptian in Hollywood can run 70mm reel to reel do they get big enough crowds to justify running 70mm prints. I attended a showing of a Cinerama film that had been converted to video and the picture was full screen side masking open full and appeared bright and clear.

To each his own, of course, but the quality of service has gone down considerably in recent years; so “totally worth it” seems a stretch to me. Cinerama-Hollywood almost never plays 70mm prints anymore while other theatres around the country still do. The Arclight chain has lots of revivals but they’re smaller digital pictures—not nearly as impressive in sound or image quality. The snack bars aren’t as fresh or well run as they used to be—at least at the locations I’ve been to. They have fewer and fewer live box office cashiers; more and more out-of-order ticket machines. They took out their guest services desks. One sees more and more vandalism in the restrooms. Seems like paying more and getting less to me.

As a $15/year member, you get a $5 gift card, a free ticket the month of your birthday, and two free tickets to ArcLight Presents shows in addition to the other stuff. That’s totally worth it to me.

Well as an Arclight member I did get excellent service seat selection and feel I have been treated very well.

Arclight members were recently notified by email that this chain of theatres is going to start charging a $15 annual membership fee. One must now pay for the privilege of having a rewards/loyalty card that has been 100% free for well over a decade. All current memberships will terminate at the end of this summer. Members with accrued points who do not renew under the new program will have 24 months afterwards to use any accrued points. One must use or lose even new points under the new membership within 24 months. The trade-off is that you get a 10% discount on coffee, a $5 gift card for signing now, and other things that nobody cares about. They are calling these things “exciting new benefits”.

And I was impressed at the picture quality, bright, clear, the sound was set a little low but the visual was very good.

I went to the Gatsby party at the Cinerama Dome on Thursday and the event was great! Well planned. Here is some video from the party http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxeaFpHOJ8w&feature=youtu.be

‘Classics in the Dome’ begins 5/3:

5/3, Friday Jaws

5/3, Friday 2001: A Space Odyssey

5/4, Saturday The Red Shoes

5/4, Saturday On the Waterfront

5/5, Sunday Lawrence of Arabia

5/5, Sunday Vertigo

5/6, Monday Dr. Strangelove

5/7, Tuesday Cool Hand Luke

No doubt all digital, but Lawrence should be 4K. Unfortunately, the CapeTown festival is that weekend, so it’s a no go for some.

AFI Night at the Movies returns to Arclight April 24. Highlights include: Blade Runner, Pulp Fiction and The Thing. As usual one of the 13 films screens in the Dome: this year it’s In The Heat of the Night, introduced by Sidney Poitier.

“East of Eden” and “Splendor in the Grass” are 35mm, the rest digital.

Now if they can only get the digital to look as good as 65/70mm

HowardBHaas on March 23, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Are those classics shown in 35mm or, as I’m guessing, 2k or 4k digital?

Looks like Arclight has added some additional one-shot retro screenings at the Dome: East of Eden (April 7), Moulin Rouge/Romeo & Juliet (April 14), Slendor in the Grass (April 23), The Untouchables (April 30) and Citizen Kane (May 1).

Nice to finally hear from somone who went to one of the retro screenings. Glad to hear “Aliens” was a hit, Cliffs. Here’s hoping Arclight will indeed see the merits of retro screenings in the Dome and keep them going year-round. Let us know your thoughts on any future retro screenings you attend. I’m still waiting to hear from anyone who caught “Days of Heaven” back in Feb.

Aliens in the Dome last night was fantastic!! Looked and sounded tremendous and the theater was just about at capacity. Batman and Back to the Future are getting similarly full. Hopefully these packed screenings remind Arclight/Pacific that the Dome has value beyond being a 3D dump bin.

So did anybody catch “Days of Heaven” last night at the Dome? Do tell.

All of those are available on standard DCP via the rep departments, so I would assume they are 2K versions.

HowardBHaas on January 23, 2013 at 12:19 pm

2k, 4k, or blu ray or disc?
