Go before 12 noon. We only paid $13.99 for the 9:00 AM show.

And ABP was shot using Cannon digital camera, so I doubt the picture quality in 70mm will be better than the digital one. Most likely, the only difference will be aspect ratio(1.44 vs 1.85) and the size of the images(huge screen at LS13)

I saw it last Friday. First 70mm experience.I was extremely excited when I walked into the auditorium and saw the big 70mm projector through the windows. Somehow I did not find a huge difference between the 70mm and digital IMAX in terms of picture resolution and brightness, maybe i can notice the resolution increased during the 1.431 scenes, but not obvious.

But yes, I LOVE the 70mm IMAX show very very much. The thing that amazed me most was the size of the images, no black bars left and right for the 2.35:1 scenes, cheers, and the full screen mode was really really cool(but sad, it’s short). Definitely will be going there again this weekend to see the 70mm! (and two more times before it’s gone.)

Yeah, can’t wait for A Beautiful Planet. BTW, anyone know if the ticket price will still be $22, only 45mins tho. I wish they could bundle Hubble 3D and ABP together, so that we could enjoy a 1hour 30min show.

Saw ‘Batman v Superman’ on on Sunday morning at the 9:00 AM show. The last time I went to the IMAX was to see ‘Interstellar’ had stopped attending because I was disappointed in the Digital presentation on that screen. The 15/70mm presentation on Sunday was impeccable. It was nice see the the full screen used again. The sound mix was excellent. It would be nice to see more IMAX prints struck until the laser projection becomes more wide spread. The start of the film was 15 minutes after the scheduled start which they announced a few times. The delay was because there was no preview bundle with the print of the film. And people assume there is going to be a slew of previews and arrive late. The next 15/70mm presentation will be starting April 29th for ‘The Beautiful Earth’ documentary.

The IMAX update won’t be happening soon, that’s the reason they reinstalled the film projector (which had originally been removed in anticipation of putting in a laser projector). The latest word given is the fall, but given multiple delays already, don’t count on anything until the renovation has actually begun.

The IMAX at this theater should be modernize soon
I reach out AMC Guest service on Twitter but they don’t

have a information about the IMAX renovation date , but they will let me know soon as impossible.

The quality is much sharper if one person wears eyeglasses if their vision is blurry which i have without glasses. The IMAX theater in Lincoln Square is soundproof compared to most AMC Imax theaters.

And how could higher resolution hurt your eyes? It’s closer to real life and your eyes were designed for real life. I don’t get it.

How could the new IMAX 3D hurt your eyes? If anything, since the 3D no longer has nasty ghosting and other problems shouldn’t it hurt your eyes less??

(the volume level however, could definitely cause permanent hearing loss/tinnitus; a shame since the speakers are so awesome, but they are set too loud to listen to)

Since the IMAX company had spent over millions of $ on it, I don’t think it will cause any big problems. I guess It may cause damages if we stay in the IMAX theater 10 hours everyday.

I wonder if watching a laser movie in 3D could hurt someones eyes more than plain digital 3d imax. The resolution of the image is akin to what you see on a phone or tablet screen or 4k tv display but bigger. Remember, home 4k is lower resolution than properly projected 4k.

I feel the current sound system and the digital projected images are very superb already. Just can’t imagine how amazing the new laser system will be, lol.

BTW, which row you guys prefer at the IMAX auditorium, I’m kind of switching back and forth between row I and H, and still can’t tell which row is better.

Thank god for watching movies at home where you can lower the volume to an acceptable level. My ears are very sensitive to real sound rather than movie theater sound such as crying babies and fire alarms and thunderstorms. If Laser IMAX surround sound sounds like real life I’ll go for standard surround sound.

The new Laser IMAX speakers do sound incredibly realistic but good grief are they loud.

The new audio system in the Laser IMAX places is wayyyyyy too loud. It’s ridiculous. A lot of theaters are getting to be ridiculous. People have been measuring permanent hearing damage from a single two hour movie length exposure at more and more places, especially IMAX. Some places have hit AVERAGE of 100db and peaks like 130+db.

LS now has Captain America: Civil War listed for IMAX 3D (so not 70mm) starting May 5, following “The Ultimate Captain America Marathon” (which doesn’t appear to be in the IMAX theater).

Not recliners but they are getting new seating. Probably similar to the Chelsea.

I remember someone in this forum said the recliners will be installed in the IMAX auditorium during the laser renovation.

according to a AMC manager. Kips Bay is next for reliners. He said the 19th Street won’t get it do to the building being old

I don’t see AMC installing recliners at Lincoln Square 13 and who said about this theater is gonna have recliners ?

mhvbear

I don’t see AMC installing recliners at the Lincoln Square. With the business this theater does, the last thing they would want to do is decrease the seating capacity. The reason the AMC installed recliners in the 84th Street and Village 7 is that these theaters were not high performing.

I’m honestly surprised you don’t have the exact day that those seats were installed. You have a calendar with that information don’t you. Since your posts are always so accurate and relevant.

I can’t wait until LS gets recliners like its sister theater, the 84th street six, did a few years ago, in all of its screens.

Giles- I will certainly prefer the 12-channel sound system over Dolby Atmos. I heard it’s much more powerful than the current digital IMAX sound system. Can’t wait to experience it.
