Kind of surprised that Act of Valor got a Canadian release.

What did you expect from the producer of Battlefield Earth, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever and the Get Carter remake?

The last big engagement at the theatre (before it became a move-over house) was David O. Russell’s Spanking The Monkey, which had a long run from July to September 1994.

KingBiscuits commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Dec 23, 2011 at 12:40 am

Actually, the Lincoln Square was equipped with DTS from the start. Their opening engagement, Star Trek: Generations, was shown in DTS.

Most likely, Universal didn’t have DTS discs printed for the film (since the studio infamously dumped it along with cutting 25 minutes from the final cut). And Dolby Stereo and DTS Stereo were more or less interchangeable.

I’ve seen three movies here: Young@Heart and Jack Goes Boating in the main auditorium and The Music Never Stopped in one of the small ones. The big auditorium is one of my favorite auditoriums in a theatre (the old lobby cards in the hallways are a nice touch) while the small auditorium I was in was nothing special.

I saw The Way here on October 10th, 2011. The theatre wasn’t at all busy but I did enjoy the leg room (I don’t think I’ve ever been in a theatre with so much leg room). Really good movie too.

Other movies I’ve seen here: Whatever Works (which had an audio mishap during the trailers that was luckily fixed before the movie), Harry Brown (which was full of senior citizens who were surprisingly unfazed by the film’s graphic violence) and Machine Gun Preacher.

Fellini and porn. A lineup of champions.

KingBiscuits commented about Keller Plaza 8 on Dec 22, 2011 at 3:27 am

Kyle, Wehrenberg turned the St. Clair into a second-run house (with digital projection, no less) which makes them taking over the Keller very unlikely.

KingBiscuits commented about Clearview's 62nd & Broadway Cinema on Dec 20, 2011 at 9:23 pm

I have been wondering lately why the Lincoln Plaza owners didn’t consider buying the theatre. It would have made for a good seventh screen.

KingBiscuits commented about B & B Ozark/Nixa 12 on Dec 3, 2011 at 8:56 pm

I believe the website may have a few.

I’ve seen two movies so far (both on the Grand Screen): Tower Heist and The Muppets. The screen size is about the same as College Station’s biggest screens but the leather seats and 7.1 sound make it worth the extra dollar.

Apparently, the two screens that have yet to be built will be Marquee Suites screens similar to their St. Louis location. With a small suburb with mostly families (near another suburb with mostly families and senior citizens), I can’t see the dining and a movie concept working at this location.

The theatre’s final engagements: Hugo (in 3-D), Puss in Boots (in 3-D), The Muppets and Breaking Dawn Part 1.

KingBiscuits commented about Town Plaza Cinemas on Nov 22, 2011 at 10:08 am

I imagine an independent will pick it up. The Cape West will become the only game in town and with Cape Girardeau being a college town that’s more or less isolated, a second theatre would make sense.

It could reopen as a second-run house.

KingBiscuits commented about Town Plaza Cinemas on Nov 21, 2011 at 2:56 pm

What looks to be the final engagements in the theatre’s history: Courageous, J. Edgar, Jack and Jill, Sarah’s Key, The Thing and The Way (the last two playing on the same screen).

KingBiscuits commented about Springfield 11 Cinemas on Nov 14, 2011 at 10:26 am

The theatre will officially be renamed the Springfield 11 on November 18th. Happy Feet Two is the premiere IMAX engagement with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (in a one week exclusive) and The Adventures of Tintin planned as future engagements.

KingBiscuits commented about B & B Ozark/Nixa 12 on Nov 8, 2011 at 9:17 pm

Right now, the theatre has only 10 screens (the other two will be added later). All screens are equipped with DLP projectors and Dolby Surround 7.1 audio.

Opening engagements: Tower Heist (on two screens), A Very Harold and Kumar 3-D Christmas, Puss in Boots (on two screens, one 3-D and one 2-D), In Time, Paranormal Activity 3, Footloose, The Ides of March and Courageous.

KingBiscuits commented about New theater opens in Ozark on Nov 8, 2011 at 9:12 pm

I saw Tower Heist here on Saturday in the large auditorium. A nice theatre and the large auditorium has leather seats but I’ll stick to going to Springfield for most movies.

Crooklyn was shown with DTS sound, I believe.

The theatre closed on January 22nd, 1998 with the previously mentioned For Richer or Poorer (in DTS) and Home Alone 3 as the final engagements.

It looks like that Wehrenberg may be trying to close this theatre. They will be beginning a second-run policy this Friday.

Was it playing in a double bill? Because I notice that The Horse Whisperer is also shown.

I would have also taken in This Is Cinerama and Total Recall if I were you.
