Yo, Rizzo! Y'all did a helluva job with “Iron Man!” Sound/Picture were pitch perfect. My film club members had a blast. We can’t wait for Indy!

I always figured as long as we’re talking about movies here, past present or future, it’s fair game. I know what JSA means about some of the other pages getting clogged with hundreds of posts about the old neighborhood, etc., but not necessarily about going to the movies in that neighborhood. The 2nd most posted-about theater on Cinema Treasures, the Ridgewood in Queens NY, is totally undeserving of that high rank if you deleted all the non-movie-related posts from its page.

So, Rizzo, please stay. You’ve NEVER gone off-topic as far as I can see!

Rizzo, you are our unofficial “inside man” at Arclight/The Dome. Screw the haters! We need you!

I do not imply that this thread should be used exclusively for historical purpose. I value your contributions and comments, and always look forward to know what’s going on with the theatre. My point is that I would not like to see this thread turn into like some of the others in this site, where they have become a depository of high school reunion messages and other topics that have nothing to do with the theater itself. If any offense was taken by you or any of the other contributors to this thread, I sincerely apologize.

Well, I agree 50-50. On one hand, I don’t particularly care if “Iron Man” or whatever will play at the Avco or the Village. That topic belongs elsewhere. But on the other hand, digital projection, regardless of how we feel on the issue, has been part of the Dome’s history for some time now, and will play an even bigger part in its future. So I feel any discussion pertaining to digital projection as related to the Dome is appropriate.

You know, I don’t mean to offend, but this is really irritating – this is supposed to be a board about the Cinerama Dome, and so much of it is about these new films and where they’re doing this and where they’re doing that – and unfortunately all these pointless posts come to my mailbox and take up space until I can delete them.

Here’s an idea – why doesn’t someone start a separate message board for digital projection and what’s showing where and leave this one to posts about the Cinerama Dome and its history.

End of mini-rant. Flame away.

//Isn’t “Iron Man” booked into the Avco, not the Village?

You’re right. The Harold and Kumar flick will still be playing there on Friday. Really bad booking by Paramount.

wait I’m confused did Paramount change their minds and are releasing Indy 4 in DLP.

KramSacul on April 30, 2008 at 2:34 am

I’m pretty sure the Village will be playing both Iron Man and Indy 4 on their DLP. Should look and sound fantastic.

KramSacul on April 29, 2008 at 9:47 pm

So no digital showings of Iron Man or Indy 4 in the other theaters either? What happened to those new NEC projectors? Are they just going to sit there all summer long?

The only place to see either film properly is in Westwood, again. Nit thrilled about it either as Indy 4 should’ve been a lock for Grauman’s.

William on April 28, 2008 at 5:11 am

If you are getting a film print the only code is the combo for the lock on the film cans. So what Justin posted about “these reels must be unlocked using a special code for projectionists to put into the projector”, it’s just a combo lock on the film cans. If you get a digital print then there is a code for the system.

Cliffs on April 27, 2008 at 10:08 pm

I hope the film prints for Ironman and Indy hold true because I have seats for both (Row C for the 8PM and 12:01 Ironmans on Thursday and Row C for the 12:01 and 8:30PM Indys on opening day), but I’ve seen Mission Impossible 3, Blades of Glory, and (I think) Transformers digitally projected in the Dome, so I wonder if this is a new agreement. In fact the only film print I’ve seen recently was the single midnight Simpsons show that ran the Thursday night prior.

moviebuff82 on April 27, 2008 at 6:43 pm

the amc near me in rockaway is getting film prints for both films by the studio. Like transformers last year, these reels must be unlocked using a special code for projectionists to put into the projector.

I got mine. 5/23 11:40 PM show.

Will it be film or digital?

mistertopps on April 25, 2008 at 3:17 pm

fyi everyone. indiana jones 4 tickets just went on sale this morning!

ZiegfeldMan on April 22, 2008 at 12:00 pm

Hi Rizzo:

Any chance for “How the West Was Won ‘ to coincide with Warner’s summer DVD release? I’m new here, so you may have addressed this before. I introduce some of the classic screenings at the Ziegfeld.

Rizzo, are y'all doing any upgrades or fine tuning of sound/picture equipment at The Dome before Iron Man opens? Me and 30 other members of my film club are going to the Friday 5/2 11:45 PM show and, since many of them have never been to The Dome, I hope the presentation will truly knock their socks off!

Sorry, my mistake. It was the AMC Century 15 that showed Da Vinca in 4K.

JSA on April 19, 2008 at 9:33 pm

I saw “Da Vinci Code” at the Dome, and remember the presentation being advertised as 2K & Dolby Digital.


Edward Havens
Edward Havens on April 19, 2008 at 9:37 am

The Dome is 4k capable… or at least was two years ago. The Da Vinci Code was shown in 4k at the Dome.

Lucas builds up my dreams only to then taint the end result somehow every time.
