Thanks, Mark.

Horror aficionados should be happy to hear we are scheduled to present all of the After Dark “8 Films to Die For” Horrorfest movies this year in digital projection, starting January 29th. But if you haven’t seen The Hurt Locker yet, this the time to see it, as it is back in our digital house, looking and sounding amazing. Make sure to sit in the balcony, as the sound up there is amazing.

I saw Boondock Saints 2 last night in house #3 and loved it! If I get a chance I will watch a show in house #2 soon!

Good to hear that Rave is taking an interest in exhibition in L.A. I’ll have to walk down to the Beverly Center next week while I am on holiday break. I don’t think I have seen a film there since the mid-90’s.

We installed a digital projector in house #2 yesterday (the smaller of the two big houses upstairs with balcony seating). We’ll be playing Hurt Locker in DLP until Thursday night and then New Moon will be in DLP starting Friday.

Rave should look into reviving Westwood and take over the leases of the Village and Bruin, and perhaps move with the plans of the multiplex Mann was considering.

Remember how some of us were wondering if Rave “unofficially” taking over this theatre was a ploy for them to enter the LA market?

BREAKING NEWS: Rave is closing a deal to buy 35 theatres from National Amusements – presumably including The Bridge Cinema de Lux in Westchester.

This Friday, we’ll be opening Where the Wild Things Are in our main house (450+ seats, 40ft screen, balcony seating), Couples Retreat in Theatre 2 (275+ seats and balcony seating) and The Box (in our largest auditorium on the main floor). Plus we’ll be keeping some really great movies including Black Dynamite, which is an absolute must see.

And if someone at CT can fix the name and link to the theatre’s website at the top of the page (it should be beverlycenter13 and not beverleycenter13), that’d be awesome. Thank you.

I can’t get their homepage to work.

And Fame is opening at the Beverly Center tomorrow, along with Pandorum, Love Happens, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, Moon and From Mexico With Love.

Fame is still listed as Coming Soon.

For the Grove to not play all thee of those films would be a stretch… something tells me the site’s “Coming Soon” is a uniform image feed from the Rave server, given it looks just like the one on the Rave site. We’ll see in a matter of weeks, though.

BradE41
BradE41 on September 14, 2009 at 9:30 pm

I noticed that also. Perhaps they are getting first run films or maybe sharing bookings with The Grove. Getting the same bookings at the same time like Pacific and Mann do in Glendale.

Looking at the “Coming Attractions” on the website is interesting. If the graphic is right, they will be getting “Surrogates”, “Fame”, and “The Invention of Lying” on their respective release dates, meaning this could transform into a first-run site.

John, if you check beverlycenter13.com and you will find the term of use page have the address of Rave Motion Pictures on it.

Also, the current total seating at the Beverly Center is 1653.

The Beverly Center 13 has its own web site at http://www.beverlycenter13.com

No mention of it on Rave’s site either – or on Rave Digital Media’s site, their answering machine doesn’t identify it as Rave either. Looks like they going stealth. (After all if they added it to their website they’d have to change the section where they brag about being 100% digital and 100% stadium seating). Make me wonder what other chains enter into management agreements and refuse to brand the site with their corporate identity. I know a few National Amusements sites that don’t carry the Showcase, Multiplex, or Cinema De Lux brands, but they don’t hide them and withhold the sites from their website.

… and now, four hours later, the “Rave Motion Pictures” brand and all the DLP subheadings on MovieTickets.com are gone. Would be interested to hear from anybody who goes today if anything has changed.

Danny Baldwin

Showtimes are now live on MovieTickets.com.

SIX of the auditoriums are equipped with digital projection as of today. There are no REAL D capable units as of now.

Will be interesting to see if they plan on making a full conversion.

By the way, with that type of fare, they are definitely not all-digital like true RMPs. “Whatever Works” and “Cold Souls” were not offered to exhibitors in DLP. And given there was no mention of “3D” by “Up”, I’d say it’s all still the same.

Danny Baldwin
Danny Baldwin on September 4, 2009 at 2:46 am

The Proposal

The neon green and orange, while entirely possible, would be downright hilarious. To try to modernize a property that’s so distinctly 80s…

Then again, much as I like a second-run programming alternative, I’d take the Burbank 8 for 80s vibes over this ‘plex any day, so they can butcher it all they want so long as the film presentation is good.

Danny Baldwin

I could buy that they’re reupholstering the seats (or even installing new ones), but I don’t believe they’d install DLP in all the auditoriums. That’s a multi-million dollar investment in a property with no future. Then again, the place is now on MovieTickets.com WITH the Rave Motion Pictures header, which would imply a shift in the plan. So hey, maybe it will be DLP. Actually, second-run is about the only time I’d really champion DLP.
