Screen ! “The Loews” has Dolby Atmos according to Fandango.

the AMC site has a list of theaters equipped with Dolby ATMOS, have you checked on there?

Can someone please confirm for me—-Is the Dolby Atmos system installed in the Loews theater?

Same here, GaryCohen. It’s been a long time since i went to an Imax movie there. I mostly go to my nearest theater which sadly is a Digital Imax that is not as tall as this one.

I’ve only been to the IMAX part of this enormous theater. It is without a doubt the best theater I’ve ever been in. Not only does it have the biggest IMAX screen I’ve seen, but the sound is extraordinary. Saw Man of Steel there last summer and the sound was so loud, I could actually feel the vibrations. In recent years I’ve seen the aforementioned Man of Steel, as well as Superman Returns, Dark Knight Rises, Star Trek Into Darkness, Skyfall, the Hobbit films, etc. By the way, check out the view of the street as you go up or come down that enormous escalator to the IMAX, very impressive. Hands down, this IMAX is the best place in New York to see a large scale film. I can only imagine what the new Godzilla will be like there next summer.

saw the youtube video. Can’t believe this theater will turn 20 later this year…still the best place to see an Imax movie in the NYC tri-state area. I remember going here a few months after it opened to see Across the Sea of Time which was my first Imax 3D movie and enjoyed the presentation. Ticket prices have gone up since then but the Imax is still the same. I never go to the other screens since they show the same stuff as most multiplexes although sometimes they show exclusive engagements before wide release, such as Lone Survivor which is doing gangbusters at the box office this weekend. No wonder why this theater as well as the Ziegfield host big premieres for big movies.

same thing happened at amc loews boston common where a burst pipe broke.

Evacuation- no direct from AMC Employees- over 4000 guests turned out to a frigid New York City night- this happened at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square.

Here’s the link ( including AMC response and first hand reports) from the Huffington Post.

Just back from see “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” The IMAX Experience. 15/70mm print. When the games start the screen opened up to full height and remained 4:3 ratio for most the rest of the film. Definitely can tell the difference from when I saw “Gravity” in Digital IMAX. I checked with Guest Services and The Hobbit sequel will be in 15/70mm.

According to the film’s editor— “It was really interesting to go from cutting this almost 4×3 image to have to basically lop the top and the bottom off. They never shot at common-center for the Imax, knowing that I would go back in later and fix it.” – See more at:

So I guess I will try & see it on imax film.

Great news!!! Is the aspect ratio 4:3 in the imax scenes or flat ratio like digital imax? In one of the trailers for the movie at the very end the aspect ratio changes from scope to flat.

mhvbear on November 22, 2013 at 11:03 am

I doubled check today and according to the Customer Service deck, Catching Fire is being presented in the IMAX in 15/70mm.

hdtv267 on November 21, 2013 at 2:07 pm

Back in October a member had posted that he heard from theatre personnel that Catching Fire and Hobbit sequel were going to be presented on film. That might have changed though for a myriad of reasons.

Not that it helps folks attending here, but let me throw out that it will be showing in 70MM Imax at the Metreon in SF

I heard earlier this year, don’t know how true it is, that all 15/70 Imax will be gone by mid 2014.

mhvbear on November 19, 2013 at 1:23 pm

Disappointment. According to the person I talked with today on the phone The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be digital on the IMAX screen instead of 15/70mm. So holding off on booking tickets until after the film opens on Thursday and check again to make sure. If this is the case the only IMAX in the area showing the film in 17/70mm is the IMAX in the Palisades Mall in Nyack. And Catching Fire has IMAX shot footage. Does not bode well for The Hobbit sequel. Here is an interesting article I found.

Atmos was installed in this theater when gravity debuted here. Is it in the loews screen?

moviebuff82 on October 7, 2013 at 12:30 pm

Was the picture still larger than the digital fake imax theaters?

mhvbear on October 7, 2013 at 12:24 pm

Fantasia 2000 was filmed in IMAX so it had the traditional 1.43:1 ratio. The Lincoln Square IMAX is 97 feet wide so even with ‘Gravity’ not taking up the full width, the picture was still larger than either the Lincoln Square 1 or the Ziegfeld.

i saw Gravity in the IMAX Theater this past Sat. at the 11:15 a.m. show and thoroughly enjoyed the sites and sounds of the film. so my question has to do with the theater itself. I am a frequent patron at the Lincoln Square’s regular theaters. now the last time I was in the IMAX theater was February of 2000 when they debuted Disney’s Fantasia 2000. I won’t bet my next paycheck but I am like 99.9% sure that at that visit Fantasia 2000 occupied the entire screen. yet while watching Gravity only the middle say 60% of the screen was being used. now I didn’t take a ruler and measure but the amount of the screen the film occupied seemed no bigger than the screen of the main Loew’s auditorium downstairs or the one at the Zeigfeld. so since it didn’t occupy the entire screen how is it IMAX?

moviebuff82 on October 6, 2013 at 3:31 pm

catching fire was shot in imax, the hobbit not.

hdtv267 on October 6, 2013 at 3:25 pm

Thanks for that update bear. I almost made the pilgrimage to the Lincoln Square for Gravity. Now I’m happy I didn’t. Maybe for Hobbit when I made my Christmas visit. Thanks again.

How is the imax dlp in this theater compared to rockaway?

celboy on October 5, 2013 at 4:53 pm

I thought thats what I saw when I walked up the aisle stairs. Thanks for the investigating. I remember watching the imax countdown trailer and was curious why it wasn’t full screen width.
