The sneak preview mentioned was for the film The Abdication. Most likely that was their only pairing as Finch died two years later.

They did have a point. Wouldn’t you quit too if your checks are bouncing?

Funny to mention that the crowds weren’t upscale during its second run phase since they seemed to well with art films.

Duck, You Sucker wasn’t a blaxploitation film. It was a recut version of Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dynamite.

And was The Wrath of God actually Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, The Wrath of God?

The Cineplex Odeon run lasted from 6/12/1987 (opening with Predator) to 7/5/1990 (closing with The Hunt for Red October).

I thought movies were banned in Iraq.

The theatre closed on November 3rd, 1988 with a double feature of A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 on one screen and a double feature of Beetlejuice and Little Shop of Horrors on the other.

Interesting that trailers for House of 1,000 Corpses were being shown two and a half years before it was released.

The theatre may be foreclosed on due to a $3.5 million debt. However, there is a campaign to save the theatre.

This is the theatre where the infamously bad horror film Ax ‘Em (then known as The Weekend It Lives) premiered. It is notable for the fact that the director was the son of a local congressman.

This was a National Amusements theatre towards the end, running overflow product from their other two theatres in Toledo.

I saw Buried last month in one of the small auditoriums (it was the only theatre in Kansas City running it). The auditorium had digital projection (as with most, if not all auditoriums there) and leather (possibly pleather, but still) seats, amazingly enough. Despite several people walking out after 30 minutes (the film was an arthouse drama rather than the horror film it was promoted as), it was a great theatre experience.

Will Aftershock play on IMAX (it was filmed for it, after all)?

Let Me In bombed due to Relativity’s terrible marketing. They basically dumped the film and spent its marketing budget to promote The Social Network.

Never figured this to be so successful in Kansas City.

Olathe is a suburb of Kansas City (of which the metropolitan area is full of megaplexes). AMC just wants to serve their homebase with a large theatre. And the theatre actually has 29 screens.

I saw one movie here last year, Paranormal Activity (while it was still in limited release). Played pretty well in the 600+ seat auditorium it was showing in.

Mike, Midnight Cowboy would never get a PG-13. Especially since you actually see oral sex in the party scene (it’s brief but still, you can’t show that in a PG-13 film). In fact, the 1994 reissue retained the R rating.

I’ve read that the theatre has been getting a little run down lately. Some people have even spotted rodents.
