Pinnacle cos. bought the theater and will renovate it.
Looks like this chain will become an AMC again….https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=10&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CHMQFjAJahUKEwimrZCGptvGAhXHiw0KHQRyDCs&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marketwatch.com%2Fstory%2Famc-to-add-380-theaters-in-172-million-starplex-cinemas-deal-2015-07-14&ei=EFulVablDMeXNoTksdgC&usg=AFQjCNGlb4AZ_rupFLIG0i5w3BgelkBmiw&sig2=ZiBETScYBipQQydTZoTX-A&bvm=bv.97653015,d.eXY
Will AMC Prime get the Dolby Vision treatment?
Coming this fall, laser imax.
I hope star wars plays at this theater if the theater is still around…
this theater is prone to power outages
Now renovated with recliners and reserved seating.
As a result lines move quicker as I saw when I went to see Jurassic World in 3d real d. They need to align the lenses better since some scenes had bad 3d. Also there was masking so that the ratio was closer to 1.85 so that trailers and policy ads and preshow were shown that way. The sound mixing was good although I had a hard time listening to the dialogue with kids in the theater.
i know. Once in awhile this theater shows crappy movies….
AMC removed the cashiers at the box office and replaced it with automatic ticket machines…sign of the times…
This theater was featured in a story on “Last week Tonight” due to the fact that this theater was the only one in the NYC area to show the Fifa funded United Passions which bombed at the box office due to the scandal surrounding the soccer federation and it’s outgoing leader Sepp Blatter.
Sad news…Paul the ticket taker who started out working at this place passed away this morning unexpectedly. Thoughts and prayers with his family.
Paul the ticket taker in the wheelchair passed away this morning at his home unexpectedly….thoughts and prayers to his family…
I wonder which theater will show the new star wars movie, this one or the one across the street?
Maybe Lincoln Square will have laser projection once the new star wars movie comes out..
Thanks for the info Giles.
Does this theater still use SDDS?
Both of which were distributed by TWC.
I read in the NYT that this theater has 4k projection.
This theater’s proximity to Macy’s and the Garden make it a popular tourist attraction for New Yorkers.
Oh boy….they were known for showing midnight runs of popular movies during the weekends according to the ads in New York Times. Which leaves other theaters still running.
i’ve seen that in the trailers…it’s an odd aspect ratio and they converted that into 3d. The next avengers movie will be filmed in digital imax 2d for two parts. San andreas will share screen time in imax with Tomorrowland and that is a DMR blowup converted to 3D.
I think 2002 was the height of the modern box office and it was the final year that the AMC outers were open. 1989 was also a busy year i think with the inners and outers open as well as 94.
