hdtv267 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Jun 9, 2013 at 1:45 pm

Normally I visit this venue for the IMAX experience. But sometimes a particular movie will get me here, as it doesn’t open in my region for quite some time.

This past Saturday 6/8/13 saw me visit and have a screening in the downstairs “Canal” while oddly configured, was a comfortable, big screen and well presented.

One of the things I get a kick of here is actually the commercials. Between the real estate agent, camps and I was surprised to see a spot for “Book of Mormon”

Enjoyable overall experience at this spot.

it’s a shame it is no longer there. Green Acres seemed to be the place to be!

without question, as I commented about a multiplex still using film in this day and age.

I find it hard to believe that a multiplex showing a wide release in IMAX 3D is hardly noteworthy or any of the comments on this multiplex, which is why I think the Facebook page is more the place for them.

very happy to “report” that film is still being run in this great complex. As nice as some might find digital to be and with the “death of film” being claimed to be at the end of the calendar year, I will choose seeing a movie here when I can.

good that they’ve got a facebook page, perhaps your comments are better suited for that, since that’s been the level of them. Hardly a historic/informational comment that you’ve seen a movie there.

if everyone posted up when they saw a movie at a particular theatre or had a bowel movement there in, this site would crash.

Happy that this venue is still operating, even as a live theater. I was inside and really enjoyed it, with alot of people around that time of night, as long as you pay attention to your surroundings- you should be fine- not taking your life in “chance” ( never heard that expression before- shrug)

August has Miss Diana Ross in concert here for 2 nights and then in the fall a performance of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

A much needed update required here. After some “unpleasantness” the Pink Diamonds closed.

The Power Exchange sex club (formerly from Otis Street in SOMA) now makes it’s ‘home’ here. I’d guess it has been doing so since sometime in 2010. Seems to be still going strong today, as there was a Yelp review posted up on 5/30/13.

I’ve not been there since the Campus days- partly due to it’s location and it’s newer incarnations aren’t my “thing”

well Landmark didn’t take it when they took over the Philadelphia based Ritz theaters. Might that change now?

quite a historic venue this. The GEVI lists this venue as the first to show “softcore gay porn” back in 1968.

Thanks for that Gary.

I was able to get to Coronet a few times during my visits. One of the theatres I miss so in San Francisco.

Some thirty six years ago, “Star Wars” was playing to record crowds here.

The SF Chronicle has some great photos and older ads commerating this..

With the selling off of the Moorlyn and Strand in Ocean City and demolition of the Beach in Cape May- this remains the only seashore theatre owned by the Franks.

Reason being says Bruce Frank “That’s just because nobody’s bought it yet"

hdtv267 commented about Strand Theatre on May 23, 2013 at 1:14 am

the Strand re-opens for Memorial Day weekend 2013, with 2 of its 5 showrooms having digital projection.

The other 3 showrooms will not open this summer due to damage from Sandy.

The Moorlyn is back, complete with the Art Deco marquee as featured in the video attached with this article from the Atlantic City Press.

All 4 of the Moorlyn screens will be functional for the Memorial Day weekend 2013, digital projectors and being fitted for multi-purpose use.

Yankee Stadium is 6 miles away. I guess that qualifies as close

As per Fandango, this complex should be titled

“Edwards Camarillo Palace Stadium 12 & IMAX ”

hdtv267 commented about UA King of Prussia Stadium 16 and IMAX on May 20, 2013 at 1:25 am

Update on here. Visited on 5/18/13 to see the new Star Trek on a “real” IMAX screen.

Couple notes, even though it was full screen IMAX, the movie was shown digitally- but you could still appreciate the segments Abrams shot particularly for IMAX.

Crowd where light (first showing I attended) was amazingly well behaved and enjoyed the movie. Pre-show (Regal First Look/CommercialRama) was shown full screen on the IMAX.

This theater closed in the 1990’s

Thanks so much for the photos, especially the marquee shot. Might be my 2nd favourite one of the Stanford’s fare. (The first being from an Olsen and Johnson movie playing there)

hdtv267 commented about Market Street Cinema on Apr 30, 2013 at 9:46 am

Yup, it is closed. The website now goes to a splash page for something called “G-string Horror”, a ‘horror’ movie with ties to that theatre and also the “ghosts” alleged to be there in.

I too hope it’s able to find some new life- as a theatre.

Might it be time for the Alamo Drafthouse people to start looking at a 2nd location for San Francisco? This location being right in the thick of downtown would be perfect than the Mission location of the proposed venue and light a fire under the Metreon and Van Ness.

Only if someone out there knew someone with that company. Maybe next time some photos?

Thanks Tinseltoes, but wasn’t that what I had posted up earlier, just on a different site?

shrug

Anyway, the plans for the renovation have been approved.

a half cent price increase seems a bit strange. How does that work out really?

.50 cent?

hdtv267 commented about Alexandria Theatre on Apr 25, 2013 at 6:08 am

Plans for the renovations go before the commission this week…

“The proposed renovation of the Alexandria Theatre and construction of a mixed-use building on the theater’s adjacent parking lot is up for approval this week with a design that has been changed from "modern/contemporary” to “Spanish/Mediterranean.”

Renovations to the Alexandria Theatre include its conversion from a three-screen theatre to a 221-seat single-screen theatre, the creation of new retail spaces on the ground floor, and a 7,000 square foot restaurant space on the second floor"
