Nearly 25 years ago this was the event theater to go to for a big movie, whether it was indie or big budget. Nowadays it’s the empire 25 that is the event theater of choice.

Hello-

to ridethectrain- thanks for your reply. if the regular adult ticket with no fancy extras at CMX 62 St. is $25 that is the very definition of OBSCENE.

Probably never, AMC and REGAL don’t want to lose capacity if the theatre sells out.

I hope Major Movie studios start owning theaters again so people get better quality theaters.

I wish my local amc had the laser projectors as the current ones are almost a decade old.

It isn’t uncommon to create scope trailers to play in theaters for 1.85 movies just to fill the screen and format of most modern pictures. But yes, saw Lion King in IMAX 3D today, and those five expanded sequences were very impressive and definitely make this the theater to see the movie in.

The previews at amc were in scope in rockaway while the picture was full frame.

Jojoa the previews at the Cinemark here were in scope. I thought that was weird. Yeah I went to You tube after the posts above. A few years back they showed a movie that was filmed in the rare 2.00 in 2.35 aspect ratio.

jojoa… OK.. around twice as wide as high!! Where is it being shown in your 1.90:1 ratio??

jojoa on July 20, 2019 at 6:38 pm

What 2.35 aspect Ratio you people are talking about, the movie always has been 1.90:1 aspect ratio always, The ads, tarilers and tv spots are on that same ratio, look that on youtube, or are you receiving an sd stream on Tv and stretching the image.

Well.. Well. Saw LK in 3D yesterday at 09:30 AM in Theater 7 at Kips Bay. (I took a look into the IMAX theater to see how the refurbish is coming along. The only IMAX item left is the screen!! Sadly fear that IMAX will not be coming back, as I’ve mentioned earlier.. the whole mall block is being demolished to make way for a new, larger NYU medical building. Excuse this off topic note!! I’m putting a couple shots of the IMAX theater as it stands now.) Also sad to report LION KING in the Kips Bay theater 7 is not in the wide screen seen in the ads!! More like the TV ratio. What a disappointment. Sorry I couldn’t see it here at Lincoln. I did enjoy the “movie”. It is a remarkable technical accomplishment!! Note: The previews were so loud they shook my seat and made me nauseous. I reported to the manager and he did give me a pass!! Thanks Anthony!!

I thought The Lion King Live was 2.35 aspect ratio. All the previews were in scope. UGH

The original Lion King played at this theater first in 35mm and dolby 5.1 during a holiday reissue in 1994, then was reissued in 70mm imax with the added morning report scene in 2002 and redrawn animation (that version was on the DVD when the film debuted on that format the following year) and a remixed soundtrack and again in 2011 with a 3d conversion that made the original the highest grossing 2d cartoon of all time, a record of which still stands today when stacked up with other classics like Snow White, which was the most reissued Disney movie of all time from 1937 until the early 90s, when it hit home video for the first time in a restored version. The new Lion King is breaking records at the box office and will last for two months. It might come back during the holidays if its nominated for Oscars like the original movie.

sadly my local AMC in Rockaway will show the 1.90:1 version in both 3d for one showtime only and the rest in regular 2d. I guess the sound mix will be the same for imax as Dolby as both use multiple channels.

@klstra

1.43:1 is the original ratio for those five scenes. In standard theaters the movie is in 1.85:1, where it is cropped for those sequences. So we’re not losing any width, we have the same plus more footage on the top and bottom.

You can get discounted tickets for Tuesday shows with a free Stubs account. The reason there may not be early morning shows for 3D is because they try to have both IMAX 3D and IMAX 2D showtimes, so they switch around and can’t give both formats a matinee time.

digital3d… Thanks for the heads-up!! I’m going to see LK in 3D here next week. $25.69 senior ticket 3:00PM (No early morning 3d>) Thought… What ratio is the rest of the movie in? I would hope 2:1?? If these sequences are expanded vertically, like they say, aren’t we losing width?

Select musical sequences of the new Lion King are in 1.43:1 and will fill this IMAX Laser screen. One of only 12 U.S. theaters. https://www.imax.com/content/LK-143-preview

There’s a major power outage on the upper west side that is causing moviegoers to get out of the building due to a transformer fire.

Hello-

to Peter A.– I thank you for your reply. if I remember correctly theaters scheduling the least amount of time between showings of a film lasted till the early 90s. patrons whop are slops night be the reason. weren’t people back in the 60s and 70s slops as well?

People are slobs and it takes longer to clean out an auditorium of the trash. Plus, multiplexes need to arrange start and stop times so that they don’t have 4 shows breaking at the same time.

Hello-

a question for my fellow moviegoers. i’m dating myself but i remember a time when theaters would schedule the least amount of time between showings of a film during they figured they could get the old audience out and the new audience in. for instance when The Godfather opened at the Loews State I & 11 March of 1972 each auditorium scheduled showings every3 hours for a film that was 2hrs. 50mins.. likewise when The Planet of the Apes opened at the Loews Capitol Feb. of 1968 they scheduled showings every 3 hours for a film that was 1hr. 44mins.. my point being simple. nowadays it seems theaters schedule and inordinately large amount of time between showings of a film. what gives?

Remember when the Lincoln Square was the go to place to see an indie flick in addition to the regular box office fare? Nowadays more megaplexes can show art house films as AMC has done recently with their program, which has gone under several name changes, from AMC Select to AMC Independent to AMC Artisan Films.
