I absolutely LOVE the reserved seating policy. Anyone complaining about it is a fool. Plan ahead, make good choices. Wouldn’t you rather make a decision ahead of time on your seat selection rather than wait 6+ hours for a blockbuster opening?

I like real imax better than digital. ..the aspect ratio is taller.

Does anyone know if Pacific Rim Imax will run here or will it stay “Kryptonian”?

Hello-

i wonder if anyone especially the theater’s management has realized that the info on the plaques next to the auditoriums entrances aren’t always? for instance the plaque for the Loew’s Capitol says it was torn down at the end of 1967. so i wonder how i saw “2001: A Space Odyssey” in its original Cinerama roadshow engagement at the Capitol the last week of April 1968? i am highly surprised even shocked to a certain degree that the plaques weren’t fact checked before they were put up.

Normally I visit this venue for the IMAX experience. But sometimes a particular movie will get me here, as it doesn’t open in my region for quite some time.

This past Saturday 6/8/13 saw me visit and have a screening in the downstairs “Canal” while oddly configured, was a comfortable, big screen and well presented.

One of the things I get a kick of here is actually the commercials. Between the real estate agent, camps and I was surprised to see a spot for “Book of Mormon”

Enjoyable overall experience at this spot.

Saturday afternoon went to see ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ on the IMAX screen. It was a wonderful experience. Loved the reserved seats. I purchased my tickets a few days in advance and was able to get my favorite seats in the theater. I prefer sitting in row M which is the back row where my line of site is about half way up the screen. I have to say 70mmIMAX is way ahead of the current D-IMAX. I am glad that AMC seems to be keeping this a 70mm film theater. I did notice that AMC is selling all the tickets for a 3D presentation where Loews used to hold back the 4 seats on the left and right sides of the theater. If you notice those seats are a different color.

I love this theater. But in seeing “OBLIVION” this morning, I had to experience the “RESERVED SEATING” policy for the first time. This is a disastrous policy in my book.

It not only wastes time at the ticket booth, but it doesn’t take into account that many patrons may have “sight line” issues when it comes to seating. Especially if the film is in 3D. And it takes away choice in regards to where people (especially those who come in early) prefer to comfortably sit.

This isn’t a Broadway musical or concert we’re talking about.

I shot off an email and a FACEBOOK rant to AMC and the theater regarding this absolutely stupid policy.

Otherwise, “OBLIVION” was stunning to see in IMAX. But with all the other big summer releases making their way, unless you pre-plan and know EXACTLY where you want to sit, good luck enjoying this theater’s new IMAX seating policy.

Thank you. It was a very impressive display. Another reason this theatre gets the respect it does.

No, it’s film. That’s why the run’s been so long. I recall a photo taken of the 99 boxes of IMAX film needed to run it.

I finally saw Hobbit here on its last night. About a 10 week run…..pretty rare in these times.Maybe 20 people. I’m pretty sure it was digital—-not an ounce of dirt anywhere.You have to be a giraffe to see what the projector is.

When did Lincoln Square do reserved seating for IMAX? This idea, which AMC is also using for its highest grossing theaters in the tri-state area and beyond, is great. As for Oz 3D imax, that will be only digital 3d standard and 2d. Is Die Hard imax playing today?

Well not sure about Star Trek, but looks like “Jack the Giant Slayer” is slaying them already the opening weekend as shows are already sold out in the reserved seating IMAX venue.

Odd, I presumed they’d get the IMAX 3D OZ ( well wishful thinking) opening a week later. Well still great to see one of the 2 movies I’m really excited for playing in this great theatre.

What are the specs for the Loews house? Is it still the same as it was when it first opened, but with a digital 4k projector?

Current seating for all theatres is 3,864. The IMAX house is still 15/70 film. Saw Zero Dark Thirty in the Loews house last Thursday. Still a treat to sit in a real balcony.

I think this member was looking for someone to give him a more definitive answer.
