moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews 84th Street 6 on Mar 7, 2016 at 6:08 pm

The Michael Kay Show on the YES Network and ESPN Radio 98.7 FM mentioned this theater alongside other New York City theaters that the radio hosts have went to recently. Last year marked 30 years since this theater opened, during which for a time the parent company of the theater sold the theater business to TriStar which in turn had some of its movies being shown there alongside Columbia movies well into the late 1980s when Tristar was bought by its sister company and Coke sold CPE to Sony, which in turn put in one of the first SDDS units in the theater for the launch of Last Action Hero which was a fluke.

Are all screens 4k projection with the exception of the digital IMAX?

Most tourists who go to this theater opt for the IMAX auditorium since it’s the largest screen in the area despite not showing 70mm film anymore. The reserved seating for the IMAX makes it complicated for people who want to find a good seat in the house and also the high ticket price is nothing to sneeze about.

The shape of the theater the exterior didn’t change that much. The places that surrounded the theater have changed. Usually after a movie at the Tenplex, you can go to dinner at Fuddruckers and go for a grub. The signage outside the theater also used surround sound symbols to show which movies were being shown in DTS or Dolby Digital.

This theater is going to be 22 years old this thanksgiving holiday, its showing its age just like other Sony/Loews theaters in the country that were built in the early 90s.

If you want to go see 70mm IMAX go to the Lefrak imax..the only place left in NYC to show real film on a giant screen.

What movie was the most famous out of all the movies to play at this theater? I say to me I think of the Star Wars movies that started with the Special Editions and continued through the prequels and then Episode VII. Sadly its sister theater in Chelsea will show Episode VIII and IX for the foreseeable future. I sadly didn’t get to go to this theater like my dad did back when movies that came out started out at this theater. He actually enjoyed watching Apocalypse Now in split surround 70mm dolby stereo on a decent size screen. I got to experience it the same way on DVD in both the original cut that was shown at this theater and the expanded version in the 70mm ratio. The bluray release of AN shows the movie in HD in its correct 35mm ratio.

on the sides of the theater notice the lack of ticketing kiosks as they are located inside the box office mostly due to cold or hot weather.

Once the renovation is done, the Loews name will be gone and it will simply be called AMC Lincoln Square. Just the exterior signage will just say AMC. The Loews name will live on in the auditorium.

I wonder how many movies the Ziegfeld has shown from its opening until its closing…excluding rereleases.

Mike (saps), when Walter Reade and then Cineplex Odeon ran the theater, those were the days. Cineplex Odeon at the time was famous for owning the Paramus theaters which were quite profitable when they were owned by Stanley Warner and then RKO-SW before Cineplex took over. At one point MCA owned a stake in the chain hence most of the Universal movies played there, including the reissue of Spartacus when MCA was controlled by what became Panasonic. When Loews Theaters merged with Cineplex in 1997, the theater, as well as its siblings, were bought by Clearview before Cablevision ran them into the ground before Bow Tie took over. Bow Tie never got a chance to renovate the Ziegfield with recliners like others as well as reserved seating yet kept the digital projection in addition to 35mm and 70mm projection. I wonder what will be come of the audio and projection as well as screen? The Ziegfield lived a longer life than the Astor and other single screen theaters showing commercial fare. It was also the most famous single screen theater that continued to show movies to fans on the east coast. As for live performances, that’s one thing the 1969 Ziegfield lacked over the original theater. In order to revamp the place into a concert hall like the Roseland Ballroom, they have to remove the seats and expand the area surrounding the theater.
