Nice complex of theaters. Saw “Whiplash” there on 11/6/14 and was in theatre 5, which per Darquil’s post above is one of the medium sized auditoriums.

Very nice lay out, couple trips up escalators- iconic movie images making up the hallway design, one large banner of Joilet Jake and Elwood Blues greet you as you head up the first bank of escalators ( fitting welcome in Chicago)

If any of the fine readers of this board have been to the AMC Bay Street in Emeryville, the layout, auditorium set up, concession area strongly resembles that.

As I type that line I realize I spend too much time in the cinema when I go on vacation. However I do like to spread the wealth and explore other venues, not become obsessed by one complex.

As I’ve stated in the past, AMC is always very forthcoming and cooperative with guest questions, either on site or via their various social media outlets.

Wow, all the time I spent in Lefty O'Douls and I had no clue.

Today was an interesting occurrence in Auditorium 15 while watching “The Skeleton Twins”. With roughly 10 mins left in the movie, the house lights came on while the movie still played.

Everyone looked around wondering what was happening. Emergency or such, but with the movie still playing doubtful. Then to the left of the auditorium we hear a loud “Oh Crap” ( probably the worker who put the lights on) and then went off again.

Thankfully nothing was wrong- but just a funny occurrence.

So this happened…

Rise of the Guardians ran instead of Guardians of the Galaxy at this venue on Thursday night.

I am very well aware of how AMC is presenting it’s coming attractions now.

It brought you to this site that a Cinemark XD logo was shown on an AMC screen.

I was merely offering a solution as to how that could have occurred.

not the grand opening ad of this particular venue. The Woodhaven 4 was part of the actual Woodhaven Mall as you can see by the “next to Woolco” mention [ Woolco was a subsidiary of Woolworth]

Woodhaven 10 was a totally new building. But thanks though, cool ad.

attended “XMen, Days of Future Past” at the ETX , Dolby ATMOS screen. Unfortunately the 3D was not much to right home about. However the movie itself was and thanks to Bryan Singer for cleaning up Brett Ratner’s mess.

The sound was incredible and quite enjoyable seating as well. Not the recliners, but definitely comfy rockers.

Your comment about “Kingsman : The Secret Service” trailer is quite intriguing. I’ve attended screenings for AMC theaters in venues in many different regions. Lately the conclusion of the trailer would have a slide with the graphic of the movie’s title , AMC logo and date in which the movie was scheduled to open.

I’ve seen commercials for other movies during the pre-show. Perhaps that is when you saw it.?

The reunion special, naming of the winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race and wedding of season 6 contestant Josyln Fox to his husband was recorded at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel. outside view of marquee featured and the inside looks nicely re-done.

Nice to see the ‘old girl’ coming back to life!

Not sure what happened with the renovation plans, reports just say they were stalled. Which is shocking considering the rate of real estate expansion in the City

Circling back to Mistertopps comments. I thought that $29 was a bit outrageous for a “normal” showing for a movie, even in LA. According to what I saw on their website, if you become an iPic member ( which is free), you also can pay $19- its $29 for non members.

The Patio will be closing for the summer, unless it can get some sort of help in getting the air conditioning fixed
