The IMAX theater will not be closed for renovation before March. They are still trying to get permission from the city; The earliest time they can get it is March.

Hidden cameras are great because they prevent movie goers from sneaking into another auditorium. The hidden cameras probably scan a code on the ticket.

AMC prime at empire 25 is awesome! I went there today, only the screen looks smaller, but all the others are superb. Just know this theatre exist from the comments below, it’s now my favorite theatre in nyc :)

AMC Prime is also 7.1/Dolby Atmos sound; far superior to IMAX 6.0 sound.

If I recall correctly, the basement screens have stadium seating but are not very good otherwise. I also think the Loews screen has stadium seating up in its balcony, but not for the downstairs section.

Also @ACS12, if you’re interested, The Revenant is now playing in IMAX as well, though at the Penn Station location, not Lincoln Square.

Then the IMAX auditorium is the only one with stadium seating. That explains why they don’t put ‘Stadium Seating’ as one of their theater amenities on the the Fandango website. I’m glad the Magic Johnson Harlem 9 theater is close to me. All of their screens have stadium seating. I’ll still go to the Lincoln Square theater for IMAX, though. They do have the biggest screen in NY after all.

Screens 1 – 9 Do not have stadium seating. But do have a good slope and have never had site problems. Screen 10, 11, 12 are in the basement and I have only been down there once and can not recall if they have stadium seating. These 3 theaters are fairly small and were added as an after thought.

BvS and the jungle book will be two great movies to see in laser. Will be very disappointed if laser IMAX doesn’t happen before bvs.

@mhvbear Star Wars would have already played for four weeks if the IMAX closed this weekend, so that’s partly why the fifth week now on sale suggests laser may not be happening for a bit. And while the switch from film to digital was done in a week, all the other places which went laser have been closed for like a month (this includes a brand new sound system with ceiling speakers, linking up to a 24/7 quality control system, and I believe the auditorium redesign is always meant to be part of it as well).

Also on some other points, I have asked staff here about laser and wrote to IMAX on Facebook, and indeed showing there is a desire for laser here could help move things forward. And I do think there is a window after Deadpool (whenever a theater closes for a month, it will miss something, and don’t feel Divergent is such a big IMAX draw they have to show it), but if the redesign isn’t done then, I could well see them holding off at least until Fall 2016 with Batman v Superman (which supposedly has quite a lot of IMAX shot footage) and then the summer movie season being impossible times to close.

Disney required theaters to play Star Wars The Force Awakens for a minimum of 4 weeks. The last time I was at the IMAX I asked and was told the Laser installation was supposed to happen in the fall. I wouldn’t think the installation of a new projector would take more than a week. They could hold off on the re-seating for a while.

It seems like if the renovation does not begin at the end of the first week showing Deadpool, we will have to wait another 3 or 4 months to get the laser IMAX. They won’t skip any of these blockbusters Deadpool, Allegiant,BvS, the Jungle Book, Civil War, Alice and Warcraft which will surely generate huge revenues during their opening weekends.

Force Awakens IMAX shows added for another week, it’s playing at least until January 22.

Since other sites opening their laser installations in Feburary are already closed for renovation, don’t think it will happen in time for Deadpool now. Perhaps they will run in digital for Deadpool and then close till Batman v Superman (nothing too big currently on IMAX’s schedule in between), or perhaps they will delay again. Given how long they’ve already waited, I’m a bit skeptical until there is an official announcement from IMAX/AMC and renovation has begun.

Is there nobody attending the Loews auditorium who can take a photo showing the splendid decor of that auditorium & post it here?

Hello-

this past Sat. 1/9 i saw The Revenant in the Loews auditorium which was the place to see it. now i noticed the top the screen looked like it was coming off of whatever its supposed to be attached to. this gave the screen a ever so lightly curved look. why don’t they fix it?

One last thing @waterguy56 the digital version doesn’t have any extra title, while the 70mm has the extra title Roadshow. So that might be another good way to make sure you’re seeing the 70mm version.

@digital3d: Thanks for the info, I will head to VE Cinema this week to see it :)

Didn’t mean to be disrespectful. Those are just really questions they might answer you best over the phone. Sometimes you can see the auditorium by the box office window too, but not in every theater I think.

And yeah, I think besides Village East Cinema there is no 70mm Hateful Eight in NYC.

waterguy56 on January 11, 2016 at 6:38 pm

The website no longer indicates the Hateful Eight is 70mm and the runtime is only 2:47, so i’m assuming it’s shown in digital now? BTW, how can I know if it will be shown in King or Lowes when purchasing the ticket online?

I hope they retrofit the Loews into an AMC Prime theater.

see 5th paragraph of Introduction for description of Loews, described as the premiere auditorium above.

The Hateful 8 70mm roadshow release was shown in the kings theater, not the Lowes.
