Congratulations and best wishes to you and your company on this acquisition. I had noticed the sale signs were removed from the marquee and was about to post up here and wonder if any one had an update.
Please do keep us informed as to the progress and also what plans your company has that you can share with us as to the venue’s use (movies, live theatre, etc)
Circling back to Marlon’s comment above, Philly.com reports today (3/1/14) that this venue is in fact becoming a “Fork & Screen” Venue. Re-opening is expected for the mid June of 2014
The Marina is a twin, both screens are offering digital projection.
Right now, this houses a Radio Shack and Subway restaurant.
this still are basic store fronts- but maybe not for much longer due to all of the development in the MidMarket region
Great article about the “return” of the Roxy
January 17, 2014 will see this complex offering Cineplex’s VIP services.
VIP Cinemas are a premium entertainment experience for adults only that offer luxurious reserved seating; food and beverage service at your seat; licenced auditoriums; a licenced lounge; an in-theatre menu of specialty appetizers and entrees; and much more.”
The ticket price, a staggering C$24.99.
looks as though this is going to meet the wrecking ball.
Plans are to raze the theater for an 8 story building including condos, 7,500 square feet of retail and 24 parking spots.
Evacuation- no direct from AMC Employees- over 4000 guests turned out to a frigid New York City night- this happened at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square.
Here’s the link ( including AMC response and first hand reports) from the Huffington Post.

You’ll be able to see a 1936 photo of the DImond here…
I’m with you alps
This theater made a bit of news over the Thanksgiving weekend. It seems that due to technical difficulties, another cartoon was played. That of an adult nature. Things were shut down with in minutes. But what about the children?
Was the curtain utilized pre and post show, please Bud?
Why do you need to fax them? You have a computer. Whenever I’ve not gotten credit for a movie on my Stubs account for whatever reason, I’ve taken a photo of my ticket stub and then emailed the photo and my information to the AMC Stubs website and it’s cleared up in a day or two.
I made a return to the Nob Hill in November of 2013. This was on a Saturday evening for the live show with 2 stars- Kieron Ryan and JR Matthews. During their show, Kieron brought up his boyfriend from the audience to join in.
It was a fun night and interesting program to say the least. Other dancers performed before and after the headliners.
There were women in attendance as well and in the audience- Myself and other male members of the audience were uncomfortable about their being there. But legally- they can not be kept out.
Ah Kip Noll, such fond memories of meeting him at another NYC venue called the Follies. One of my favourites back then.
I remember making a special trip up to see this one.
Very well written Kurt. Thank you for sharing
woo hoo- Dollar Hot Dogs!
Thats the link to the theater page via StarPlex if someone wants to update even more accurately!!
Wish my scheduling had worked out for this round of Bill Castle’s films. I went last time and had a blast,er, buzz at the screenings.
Work is beginning on the ACT renovation of the Strand.
It will be divided into three theatres actually.. From today (8/5/13) SF Chronicle..
“The architectural rendering shows 15 rows of seating, steeply raked, on the main floor and another five rows on the balcony, with boxes to the side. As opposed to 1,025 seats at the main stage, known informally as the Geary and formally as the American Conservatory Theater, the Strand will seat 285. Upstairs will be an ultra-experimental "black box” third stage seating 120"
It’s scheduled to re-open in January of 2015.
Link with details including photos is here, if someone wishes to link up, that would be great, and easier for the other members..
Thank you for the confirmation mhvbear, I appreciate it .
I concur with Chuck. I’ve always had great email exchanges with AMC on various complex issues and had them dealt with to my satisfaction.
Oh and please watch the double posts as well. I’m pretty sure you can go back and delete the extra one.
Well due to timing for seeing the 3D version of “Despicable Me 2” saw me heading back to this venue again. It was 9:30 am and I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw.
The staff was quite welcoming this time. Even though minor confusion about the 3D glasses, but I just attributed that to it being roughly 30 mins before show time. I’m sure they sorted it out as the rest of the patrons came in.
People were well behaved as best I could see. I headed down to the front of the theatre half way through. Not because of problems, but because I wanted a better vantage point to enjoy the 3D.
There seemed to be a slight issue at the beginning with the AMC logo , but I let management know and it was cleared up right away. We got the info about putting the 3D glasses on and the “please be considerate” screen was kept up for a bit.
Will I go back? Not really sure. It might have been the morning after a holiday.
But since I took the time to bitch so much last time, I wanted to come back and say that job well done this time out.
it is- so where is the link providing that information?
please post it in the future.
