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.

hdtv267 commented about Genesee Theatre on Nov 18, 2014 at 4:41 pm

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 2:10 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.

cinerama? digital?

hdtv267 commented about AMC Loews Bay Terrace 6 on Oct 23, 2014 at 4:30 am

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 Loews Bay Terrace 6 on Oct 22, 2014 at 3:55 pm

that is the same at all AMC theaters, not just this one.

Wow, all the time I spent in Lefty O'Douls and I had no clue.

hdtv267 commented about AMC Neshaminy 24 Theatres on Sep 27, 2014 at 5:22 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.

that would be a better place to be sure your concerns are addressed.

hdtv267 commented about AMC Rockaway 16 on Jun 22, 2014 at 6:09 am

I am very well aware of how AMC is presenting it’s coming attractions now.

It brought you to this site that a Cinemark XD logo was shown on an AMC screen.

I was merely offering a solution as to how that could have occurred.

June 13th is the re-opening for this venue as a “fork and Screen”

hdtv267 commented about AMC Woodhaven 10 on May 26, 2014 at 4:58 pm

not the grand opening ad of this particular venue. The Woodhaven 4 was part of the actual Woodhaven Mall as you can see by the “next to Woolco” mention [ Woolco was a subsidiary of Woolworth]

Woodhaven 10 was a totally new building. But thanks though, cool ad.

attended “XMen, Days of Future Past” at the ETX , Dolby ATMOS screen. Unfortunately the 3D was not much to right home about. However the movie itself was and thanks to Bryan Singer for cleaning up Brett Ratner’s mess.

The sound was incredible and quite enjoyable seating as well. Not the recliners, but definitely comfy rockers.

hdtv267 commented about AMC Rockaway 16 on May 26, 2014 at 5:16 am

Your comment about “Kingsman : The Secret Service” trailer is quite intriguing. I’ve attended screenings for AMC theaters in venues in many different regions. Lately the conclusion of the trailer would have a slide with the graphic of the movie’s title , AMC logo and date in which the movie was scheduled to open.

I’ve seen commercials for other movies during the pre-show. Perhaps that is when you saw it.?

hdtv267 commented about Theatre at the Ace Hotel on May 20, 2014 at 1:42 pm

The reunion special, naming of the winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race and wedding of season 6 contestant Josyln Fox to his husband was recorded at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel. outside view of marquee featured and the inside looks nicely re-done.

Nice to see the ‘old girl’ coming back to life!
