hdtv267 commented about Mayfair Theatre on Mar 15, 2015 at 8:15 am

The Mayfair theatre is featured in this film about, of all things, the Mayfair neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia, from the 1930’s. Even though the theatre’s “appearance” is brief, it’s still an amazing time capsule

Might be some life for the old girl yet. British Landlord Howard Panter is looking to expand his real estate holdings, particularly theatres for Broadway shows. Playbill sites this venue as one that could be renovated…

Fascinating.

I looked at the Facebook page for this multiplex and there was no mention of closure whatsoever.

Movie times listed on Fandango and AMC’s website for today.

I didn’t see anything on line about this. I checked the papers and such. Where exactly did you get this piece of information?

Will the theatre be renamed as well? If not, then I’m confused by the relevance of the comment here.

If so, then please do include the site or place in which you read these “reports”

Thank you.

Actually Cinemark is operated by Century and that is just a ‘brand’ as is “Cine Arts”. They also have ‘Rave’ & ‘ Tinseltown’

I for one am baffled by the lack of interior photos for this complex. There’s a lot of exterior ones, but none of the interior?

featured how? just a passing shot? scene is supposed to take place in the theatre? What was the episode name? Be nice to know to be able to DVR it since FXX has been running them.

The Genesee is alive and well. I had the chance to visit Waukegan to pay homage to the statue of Jack Benny and stopped by the historical society.

According to information that they provided, the opening movie title was “Valley of the Giants”. Contractors used for the construction were locals, Peterson & Weeks. Theatre re-opened on Dec 3, 2004, renovations coming in at 23 million dollars.

The recliners are here and it’s a wonderful experience attending this theatre complex ( even with the escalators)

I attended “Big Hero 6” on a Sunday morning showing at 9:45 am, there were not many others in there, but there was another Chicago event going on so traffic was a mess.

Having an outpost of the “Shake Shack” could help this one along- but if you’re in Chicago, check this place out. Very comfortable, reserved later in the day seatings and then also the “MacGuffins Pub” located in the lobby.

hdtv267 commented about Navy Pier IMAX Theatre on Nov 13, 2014 at 4:10 pm

As it was mentioned before the design of this theatre is maddening and is set up with entrance/concessions/rest rooms not part of the theatre complex.

You have to go back out into the Navy Pier area to go to the rest room, which with a 2 ¾ hour movie like “Interstellar” is almost a certainty.

All of that being said, er typed, I was very pleased with the presentation of the movie. It was in 70mm film and you could of course tell the sections that were filmed with IMAX cameras.

If there’s a rare occasion that a IMAX movie made with film is done after Interstellar and you’re in the Chicagoland region, then I suggest it highly. The reserved seats helped with the running late for dinner.

As far as snacks, stop by the iconic Garrett’s popcorn or a cheeseburger at Margaritaville

Just attended “ Dear White People” an impromptu visit on a Saturday night. I was happy to get to this theatre and give it some business. Happy to see it back open again. I was in theatre number 2 for this. It was strange as no one tore the tickets when we arrived, show started a little late, there were just three trailers.

It was a full house for the movie in the fine diverse community of Hyde Park. They need to work a bit on hallway noise. In the next theatre was a showing of Big Hero 6 and you could hear the kids leaving the cinema when it was done.

Glad that I went, had a good time and spent extra money on concessions to help support them. Friendly staff and I wish them all the luck and success.

Nice complex of theaters. Saw “Whiplash” there on 11/6/14 and was in theatre 5, which per Darquil’s post above is one of the medium sized auditoriums.

Very nice lay out, couple trips up escalators- iconic movie images making up the hallway design, one large banner of Joilet Jake and Elwood Blues greet you as you head up the first bank of escalators ( fitting welcome in Chicago)

If any of the fine readers of this board have been to the AMC Bay Street in Emeryville, the layout, auditorium set up, concession area strongly resembles that.

As I type that line I realize I spend too much time in the cinema when I go on vacation. However I do like to spread the wealth and explore other venues, not become obsessed by one complex.

As I’ve stated in the past, AMC is always very forthcoming and cooperative with guest questions, either on site or via their various social media outlets.

hdtv267 commented about AMC Neshaminy 24 Theatres on Sep 27, 2014 at 7:22 pm

Today was an interesting occurrence in Auditorium 15 while watching “The Skeleton Twins”. With roughly 10 mins left in the movie, the house lights came on while the movie still played.

Everyone looked around wondering what was happening. Emergency or such, but with the movie still playing doubtful. Then to the left of the auditorium we hear a loud “Oh Crap” ( probably the worker who put the lights on) and then went off again.

Thankfully nothing was wrong- but just a funny occurrence.

So this happened…

Rise of the Guardians ran instead of Guardians of the Galaxy at this venue on Thursday night.
