BWChicago, I have seen Ironman at Cinema Banque Scotia (AKA: Paramount) in Montreal in Cinema 4 which has an Digital projector and it blow the 35mm film projection away (and that cinema has top notch film projection.) It is the lab’s fault that the print does not look as good as it should be.

This was the last building spree by Cineplex Odeon, They built this one, Quartier Latin 17 and St. Bruno 11 in the Montréal area, the South Keys 12 in Ottawa, The renovention of the Varsity in Toronto, Ajax 10, 401/Morningside, the Canyon Meadows 10 in Calgary, which they lost when they failed to pay the rent, and the 3 theatres built with the partnership on Inner City Entertainment in Chicago. All the grand opening ads had the same design. In 1998 they merged with Loew’s.

As the theater headed into bankruptcy, Baldridge faced new problems.

On Sept. 12, a Labor Department investigator showed up at Baldridge’s Dallas office in hopes — unsuccessful that day and since, according to court documents — of retrieving a number of documents related to a 401(k) plan tied to one of his companies.

About a week before Christmas, the theater owner was arrested again. Police noticed that Baldridge driving his silver four-door Lexus on the wrong side of the road.

He was stopped in the theater parking lot just after midnight and charged with driving while intoxicated. He spent the next 12 hours in jail.

Woodward showed up for work at the Metro Cinema on Jan. 18, one day after the Texas comptroller’s office seized a few computers and point-of-sale machines for nonpayment of state taxes. Without the machines, it was impossible to sell movie tickets, Woodward said.

So, he and a couple of other managers tried to call Baldridge to find out what to do next. They couldn’t reach him.

Without direction, Woodward and another manager printed signs at a nearby Kinko’s and taped them to the door, telling customers that the theater was closed indefinitely.

Even when times looked tough for the theater, Baldridge had remained positive, Woodward said. He was fond of telling employees, “I’m not going anywhere.”

But Woodward still wondered.

“I had that gut feeling, ‘This probably isn’t going to be around much longer,’” he said. “But it definitely happened a lot sooner than I thought.”
