Jodar, I’m not sure what you’re referring to when you say “older movie with a new system”. When I went there on October 22, they were still working on the 4K system. Hence, why I said auditorium #6 was closed.
I saw “Where the Wild Things Are” in auditorium #2, which was a 35 mm film presentation. On the same day, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” was shown in #14 but in 35 mm film and not DLP 3D as in previous weeks. The movie appears to be showing in 3D now, so they may have been working on the DLP projector again.
Sorry if I wasn’t clear enough in my last post.
Jodar, was the movie shown in auditorium #6? When I went to see “Where the Wild Things Are” yesterday (in auditorium #2), it was closed. So I’m assuming the 4K system is in that auditorium.
According to MovieTickets.com and Fandango, the documentary film, “Amelia”, will be shown in Sony 4K at this theater and AMC Loews White Marsh 16 starting on Friday (October 23).
Online ticketing has been moved from the Muvico web site to Cinemark.com and Fandango
Cinemark is now showing live and prerecorded events at this theatre via NCM Fathom. The first event shown was “Mayweather vs. Marquez Live in HD”.
Correction on previous comment: this theater is now an independently owned and operated theatre. Regal Entertainment Group no longer operates this theatre.
This theater appears to be closed. Its listing on Fandango still exists but online ticketing has been removed. Also, it’s showtime listings were not shown in the local newspaper (Baltimore Sun) this weekend.
Auditorium #17 was reopened last week as an IMAX Digital theatre: IMAX Entrance
One of the largest auditoriums is to be converted to large-format Cinemark XD by the end of the year. It seems that Cinemark is trying to compete with the IMAX Digital theatres in the area.

The standard length trailer will be released online at apple.com/trailers on Thursday, which will likely include some footage from the extended 16-minute trailer.
According to IMDB, the movie will actually be shown in two different aspect ratios depending on the format. The standard 2D version will be shown in 2.35:1 and 3D will be shown in 1.85:1
Looks like this theatre will not be getting the IMAX Digital conversion. According to AMC’s IMAX page, this theatre is no longer listed under the Coming Soon tab.
All Muvico signage has been removed (except for the logo above the automated ticketing kiosks) and replaced with Cinemark branding. According to the official ticketing web site (View link), Muvico passes and gift cards will be accepted until September 18.

Cinemark Press Release
Cinemark has installed a DLP system with RealD 3D in auditorium #11. I saw Up 3D in this auditorium, which looked much better than my previous 3D viewings in #18. Like the other large auditoriums in this theater, the sound was good. Auditorium #11 has 483 seats. I have yet to see a 3D film in #7. All three digital auditoriums are currently showing Up 3D.
There is a sign in the box office window notifying patrons about the operator change from Muvico to Cinemark. Another sign tells patrons that the theater will be accepting Muvico passes and gift certificates until May 31 (tomorrow).
It’s official: like AMC, Regal will convert all of its theaters to 4K in the next 3 to 5 years.

This hasn’t been officially confirmed yet but apparently Regal has also signed a deal with Sony.

According to the Sony Digital Cinema site and Fandango, Regal Knoxville Center Stadium 10 currently has 4K in all auditoriums.
The patrons at this theater can be a mixed bag. At a sold out IMAX screening of Watchmen, the patrons were actually quite friendly and well-behaved. They moved to the center to make more room and some even helped save seats if someone had to step out.
On the other hand, at a regular 35 mm screening of Watchmen, a woman in the back of the auditorium laughed loudly during scenes that were not that funny and the woman sitting directly behind me kept talking to herself during the movie. These people were not teenagers/young adults either, they were middle-aged people.
This theater would actually be a good location for an IMAX conversion due to the size of its largest auditoriums, especially compared to the auditorium sizes of current IMAX Digital installs.
AMC theaters with Sony 4K projectors now have RealD 3D installed. At least two screens per theater were retrofitted.
As evidenced by the Cinemark Tickets and Showtimes page, this theater is now known as Cinemark Egyptian 24.

Looks like the 3D system debuted earlier than originally planned as Fandango has Coraline 3D listed until Friday. The theater was not listed in Regal’s press release for Coraline 3D but was listed for the Jonas Brothers 3D Concert.
Showtimes are now listed on Fandango and other ticketing sites. However, the official ticketing site (MovieTickets.com) is still down. So tickets cannot be pre-ordered at the moment. If anyone goes to the theater, please report back on whether it is open.
I was not able to ask any of the theater employees since none were available. However, I believe the theater was closed down for some reason. The outside of the theater in front of the box office was packed with people. The inside looked to be the complete opposite.
Showed up to the theater today and all the patrons were standing outside. Free passes were being given out at the box office. I also saw an usher who was escorting patrons to the exit.
