Now that Interstellar is out and the film projector is being used again, any word on if Hobbit Pt. 3 will indeed screen on an IMAX 3D film print. I saw it mentioned back here in a comment a couple months ago, and IMDB lists a 70mm IMAX version in their tech specs, but I’m a bit skeptical given some word that Interstellar would be the last 70mm IMAX print.

If Hobbit does indeed have such a release here, I would book my tickets for that to perhaps give IMAX 70mm one last viewing (I did recently see a documentary in IMAX film as I see some museums are still using that, but for a studio film I haven’t seen one since Catching Fire). If not, I’ll probably go for HFR 3D at a regular theater like the last one (I do have some issues with the format still but it is a unique experience, and I felt they improved the HFR effect in the second movie over the first).

It is just short of a 3 hour film and I wold think they are trying to get 2 shows at night in. Shows are at 10AM, 2PM, 6PM, 10PM & 2AM. I wonder what kind of crowds they get for a 2 AM showing? I am seeing it Saturday at 2PM. Having to come in from outside the city. I see the Tuesday night 8 PM show is close to selling out already.

thanks for letting me know because fandango’s fan alert didn’t. Boy those good seats went fast.I will go wednesday.

Why is it seem that the first week or 2’s screen times aren’t that convenient for getting out of work & getting to the theater & then they come around to screenings around 7pm or 8pm?

Its been this way with this imax even before they did reserved seating.

Tickets are on sale for Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ playing at the IMAX in 15/70mm and 4K on the Loews Screen.

Yes I “ve seen their IMAX presentation at the AMC Lincoln Square IMAX every since they switched from 15/70mm in the late spring to the early summer .The Movie I saw was the the Amazing spiderman 2 which they was using the 15/70mm print of The Amazing spiderman 2 on the big screen

Under performing to it’s potential. Have you seen how pathetic their IMAX presentation is since they switched from 15/70mm.

Under performing which theatre?

mhvbear on September 17, 2014 at 3:25 am

The Lincoln Square IMAX is still under performing using4K Digital Projection.

I used to work in this theater as a usher during the summer youth program 2012 and I did gave the people 3D glasses.The AMC asked my old high school to asked me to work for them and my job was greeting the guess when they entering the theaters .By next year I hope the AMC come to my old high school to ask the student to work for them

Wait.. what? … I didn’t think the new IMAX laser systems weren’t going to debut until next year

amcbayplaza13 on September 6, 2014 at 11:53 am

I did saw the amazing spiderman 2 and godzilla in IMAX but I remember they playing movie with laser IMAX digital projector and I noticed about the amazing spiderman 2 and godzilla was playing in 15/70mm film projector every since I was on line buying large popcorn and the hole people waiting for the movie ti start at Lincoln Square in the late may and the early june

The last time I was at the Lincoln Square to see ‘Lucy" i inquired about 15/70mm at the IMAX screen. I was told that “Interstellar” and “The Hobbit:The Battle of the Five Armies” will show actual prints.

RelexedNYC: What features do you recall being full width there? I wonder if they were imax film DMR’s. I think the lenses attached to the dlp’s can’t do full width on that screen. PS-I found the 3d of Hobbit Teaser so much better than the “average/typical 3d” of Guardians ….which was still a really good movie.

relaxednyc on August 3, 2014 at 1:28 pm

Fingers crossed the laser IMAX upgrade happens soon- digital IMAX presentation of Guardians of the Galaxy was incredibly disappointing, with the image not even filling the screen side-to-side like it used to, probably 10 feet of blank borders on the left and right. Coupled with the fact that films not shot in IMAX never fill the screen top to bottom, this made the image essentially look like a mistake. 3D was fine, but slightly dim.

The IMAX screen is huge, but using probably 50% or less of it to show a film makes the only benefit to seeing a film there the reserved seating.

Bow Tie only programs the Ziegfeld. The theater was not part of the Clearview sale.

ridethectrain on June 29, 2014 at 8:12 pm

After Intersteller is the last IMAX film in 70MM film.

The reason why most Regal Theatres that had Dolby Atmos elected to show Think Like A Man Too in that auditorium instead at Kaufman, Court Street. Which is sad that they showed that in RPX and the film is recorded only in Dolby Digital 5.1 It should of been showed in a regular auditorium

ridethectrain on June 29, 2014 at 8:08 pm

Saw Godzilla in Atmos there when my Godzilla IMAX show got cancelled due to mechanical problems. Miss the 70MM Imax, the current IMAX Digital is slightly bigger than baby IMAX.

Jersey Boys is playing at the Ziegfeld, but Bow Tie Cinemas didn’t installed Atmos. The best flagship theatre in the city needs the sound upgrade.

I can’t stand the reclining seats the 84th multiplex has. for one if you a big person and I don’t mean overweight just big your leg is constantly pressing up against the button with opens the chair. its almost impossible if you are a big person to just sit in the chair in a regular fashion comfortably.

also the pricing at 84th St. is highway robbery. ticket prices for 1st run theaters in Manhattan are already to high. yet the 84 St. forces you to pay more for a “reserved seat” even if there are only 5 people in the theater.

that would be a better place to be sure your concerns are addressed.

moviebuff82 on June 21, 2014 at 4:52 pm

It’s time for AMC to renovate this theater and put in reclining seats like its sister theater the 84th street 6. It’s also common in other AMC theaters in the US to see a movie the way the director intended it to be. How are the other screens compared to the IMAX screen? When did the IMAX open?

mhvbear on June 21, 2014 at 9:13 am

I was here a few weeks ago to see “Godzilla” in Theatre 1. Went there or the Dolby ATMOS. Just say they royally messed up the projection of the movie. The picture did not take up the screen with black borders on top, bottom & sides. Seems as though the switching back and forth between 3D to 2D the proper adjustments were not done. Once the film started I was told nothing could be done. We were given passes but now the Lincoln Square is not a sure bet on presentation and this was considered one of the premier theaters in NYC. AMC has ruined this theater for me. It is getting harder in NYC to see a decent movie presentation.

Giles on June 20, 2014 at 9:21 pm

IMAX ‘laser’ will be true 4K – so yes the resolution will be improved.

‘Jersey Boys’ here at the Lincoln Square 13 is only one out of two East Coast theaters that are presenting the film in Dolby Atmos.

celboy on June 13, 2014 at 1:52 pm

For Interstellar…. but not for Hobbit 3?
