i saw Solo this past Sat. at the Orpheum. I thought it was THE DARKEST FILM i have ever seen. I complained
to the Orpheum’s manager and he said its the film
itself not their projection. have people who saw it
here have the same experience?
to Ed S. thank you for your reply. I was fortunate to have seem 2001 twice during its roadshow run at the
Capitol on the gigantic curved Cinerama screen. I
suppose every viewing of the film in a theater will
be judged against those two viewings.
to markp. I like your witty comment. I don’t see
what would have been soooooooooooooo horrible if
Nolan had restored the print before making the 70MM
prints for the 50th Anniversary. is Nolan saying
classic films should never be restored?
to Howard B.–
I went to the 1:10p.m. screening on the opening
day May 18th. unfortunately there was no program
at all whether a freebie hand out or one for sale.
since when the 70MM engagement of TPT opening
at the Lincoln Square they had a rather nice
freebie hand out I had my fingers crossed. but it
to Howard B. do you know if a chart that will
adjust for inflation? for instance A Daughter of
the Gods produced by William Fox which opened
Oct. of 1916 cost a cool $1,000,000 making it the
most expensive film made up to that time. what
would that $1,000,000 be today?
I saw 2001 this past Sat. at the Village East. It
was ! WOW !. but I noticed three slight rips. why
would it have been so horrible if Nolan had repaired
the rips. is Nolan saying classic films should never
what would have been so horrible if Nolan had
repaired the quite obvious scratches? he wouldn’t
have changed the film just repaired it.
to Bill H. thanks for noting the 7:30 show issold out. I made sure to reserve a seat for theshow most convenient for me.
since you mentioned it- why isn’t the late butgreat Ziegfeld not liked by many members?
two items-*the Village East has shows every 3hrs. 10mins. so they could fit in a 15 maybe 10min. intermission.
*since has articles have stated the film hasn’t been
restored or remastered will I notice visual and
to Bill H. if its only at the Village East so be it.i just looked at the site and noticed somethinginteresting. the Village East site gives the runningtime at 2hrs. 44mins.
oops! I meant to say Cinema 1 not “here”.
another thought on the 50th Anniversary. no matter
how WOW the new print supervised by Nolan is are
they opening it here or the Village East because
the Loews auditorium at the Lincoln Square and
auditorium 12 at Regal 42 St. can’t show 70mm?
while walking past this theater the other day I had
pangs of regret about the late but great Coronet/
Baronet, the Trans Lux East and the Sutton. now those
closed and were demolished because the land became
worth more than the theaters no matter popular could possibly bring in. so whenever I attend this theater
I wonder how is it still here?
the intro states that when this theater was twinned
in 1968 the main auditorium downstairs retained the
name while the upstairs auditorium was named the
Baronet in honor of the recently closed Coronet/
Baronet in Manhattan. the Coronet/Baronet didn’t
close till 2001.
to markp thank you your reply. as I said in a recent
post unless the newly remastered 70MM print of 2001
personally supervised by Nolan is shown in a theater
with a really big screen why bother? to repeat myself
its like showing a newly remastered 70MM print of
Lawrence of Arabia at the Cinema 2.
to Bill H. I recently saw Ready Player One at the
main auditorium of the Village East. it didn’t impress
as being anywhere near the size of screen at the Ziegfeld. since the Ziegfeld is no longer with us
the place to show Nolan’s personally supervised
frame by frame digital restoration of 2001 in 70MM
would be the Loews auditorium at the Loews Lincoln
Square or auditorium 12 at the Regal 42 St.
while I’m looking forward to Nolan’s supervised
frame by frame re-mastering of 2001 for the 50th
Anniversary since they’re releasing it in theaters
shouldn’t it play in theaters with really
big screens? in NYC its playing the main
auditorium of the Village East which isn’t an
especially large screen.
I remember seeing 2001 twice during its roadshow
engagement “in Cinerama” at this theater and
a few years later at the in 70mm at the Ziegfeld.
my point being simple- since Nolan supervised a
frame by frame re-mastering for the 50th Anniversary
why show it at a theater unless it has a really
big screen? its kind of like doing a frame by
frame digital re-mastering of Lawrence of Arabia
and showing it at the Cinema 2.
I have a question I hope my fellow moviegoers can
help me with. plus i’m asking it here since i don’t
no where else to ask it. after post-production work
was done the original cut of Call Me By Your Name
was 4hrs. the film as released is 2hrs. 12mins. is
there any way to find out what was in the excised
thank you to RogerA for replying. I know the Cinerama
Dome is on Sunset and Vine I have visited it many times
in my trips to L.A.. what I asked was if the photo
on top this page is not the Cinerama Dome in
Hollywood why is the photo there?
I was last out in L.A. the Spring of 2003 so I can’t
honestly vouch for the accuracy of the photo at the
top of this page. but if it isn’t the Cinerama Dome
on Sunset Blvd. and Vine was is it there?
thanks to rayman29 for replying. as I said for
yearssssssssss and yearssssssssssss the Summer
movie season has always started the 1st Fri. in
May. so are you saying that the Summer movie season
will now be starting the last Fri. in April? I ask
since the last week of April has for years been
a dumping ground.
I thank moviebuff82 for their reply. but I an still
of the opinion that for yearssssssssssssssssss that
specially the last week of April being a dumping
ground(negatively of course) for big studio films.
its kind of like an Oscar Bait film that had a long
held release between the first week of Oct. and
Dec. 31 gets pulled from said release date at the last
minute and is released in January you know its a turkey.
for yearsssssssss and yearssssssss the first Fri. in
May was the start of the Summer movie season. so i was
quite surprised that The Avengers: Infinity War was
switched from the 1st Fri. in May to the last Fri.
in April. for yearssssss the last week of April has
been a dumping ground. i am quite nervous about the
switch being an omen.
to BobbyS I thank you for your reply. I recently
watched an HD transfer of Circus World on YouTube
and found that while it may not have been Oscar
material it was an colorful entertaining movie.
so since the film’s roadshow engagement “in Cinerama”
at this theater lasted 19 weeks I can’t believe
said engagement at the Uptown in D.C.lasted only 3 weeks.
also presenting films “in Cinerama” lasted another
