Hello-

a two part question for anyone who saw Captain Marvel at this theater this past weekend. i saw the film at the 12p.m. screening at the Loews Orpheum. was your movie quite dark? half the time i couldn’t see what was happening. and second how full was your auditorium? the 12p.m. screening at the Orpheum was almost empty.

Hello-

Hello-

to markp thanks for your reply of 12/27. I am assuming that when a film’s release date is announced its basically shot edited and in the can. for instance the Summer Movie section which the NY Times had the first Sun. in May has Under the Silver Lake opening the last week of June. in fact when i saw Angels in America Andrew Garfield( who i’m a big fan of) confirmed the film was opening the last week of June. but it was pulled from release and yet to open in Dec. the Fall Movie preview section in the Sun. N Y Times the 2nd Sun. in Sept. stated as much. but the film never opened. people who go see blockbuster/super hero films 2 to 3 tend not to see art house films. so what happened to UTSL? continually shifting release dates is NEVER a good sign.

The Dolby Cinema’s projector is much brighter than the old projector yet still has the Dolby Atmos audio in the theater in addition to the AMC Signature Recliners that rumble with the action. Also, they removed the SDDS DTS and Dolby decoders from the screen and put in an Atmos system. Theater #2 is now the 70mm screen.

Hello-

thanks for the reply. what I meant to ask was how different a moviegoing experience is the Dolby Cinema from the Loews Auditorium?

The “Loews” part of the theater’s name seems to have been fully retired now, the amc website has updated it to “AMC Lincoln Square 13”. https://www.amctheatres.com/movie-theatres/new-york-city/amc-lincoln-square-13

bigjoe59, the brochures were on a table just outside the entrance to cinema 2. As for the movies that never come out, sometimes the movie needs to be reworked or the film companies just keep pushing it back to maybe not compete against too many blockbusters.

The New York Papers still show the listings for this theater although more people tend to look online for showtimes. How is the 3d alignment at this theater? Where I live in rockaway 3d is hit or miss; same with imax.

Hello-

to markp thanks for your reply other day. a two part follow up.

*during the 70MM engagement of Phantom Thread where were the brochures placed?

*also do you know of a website that will mention whatever became of a film that was never came out? as an example the Fall Movie section in a Sunday NYT this past Sept. listed films which never opened. in fact they were listed again in the Holiday Movie section the first Sunday in Nov. and gain never opened.

@Chopinlives81: Looks like those showtimes are final and it’ll indeed only be in 2D here after Thursday.

But there are 3D showtimes next week for Aquaman at nearby locations such as AMC 84th Street.

Chopinlives81 on December 26, 2018 at 2:53 pm

I just saw Aquaman in 3D and I want to take some friends to see it, but I’m noticing that after this Thursday, all the showings are listed as 2D. Can anyone confirm this or is it a mistake? I would like to see it again in 3D.

bigjoe59, as I remember, I think we had them for a little over a week. I know I got one the first day I was working there. That was an amazing run. 11 weeks and 377 shows and the print went back dirt and scratch free. It was a very proud run for myself and the other 2 projectionists that ran it.

Hello-

first off Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. okay here goes- how long did the rather nicely done brochure passed out at the 70MM engagement of Phantom Thread last? when I saw If Beale Street Could Talk opening day at the Angelika Film Center they were passing out a beautifully done brochure for the film that was so beautifully designed and printed they could have sold it has a souvenir program.

I saw Mary Poppins Returns in the Dolby Cinema yesterday. The reclining seats are comfortable and like other AMC cinemas with a Dolby auditorium the screen size is more than generous. The images and sound are nearly flawless. Visiting this theater is always a treat, just to admire the lavish decor given to each cinema entrance on the second floor. I wish more theaters paid tribute to the great cinemas of the past long gone but not forgotten.

One year ago today I started running Phantom Thread in 70MM in Cinema 2, the Kings Cinema.

Hello-

this past weekend If Beale Street Could Talk opened here and at the Angelika. the Angelika was passing out a freebie brochure that was so well done it amounted to a souvenir program. did this theater pass it out as well?

@klstra Based on my experience most (if not all) people recline. There is also lots of leg room so it should be very, very rare that someone’s view is obstructed. But if you want to be really sure I’d recommend just getting tickets for the balcony.

digital329 What if they aren’t reclined?

@guolei329: Well, that’s not entirely true. The Dolby here does have stadium seating on the four balcony rows. There is no stadium seating on the ground level, but all the seats recline so there shouldn’t be any obstruction of the screen.

The Dolby Cinema does not have stadium seating! Don’t go!!!

According to this Screen Rant article, around 70% of Dunkirk was shot in the 1.43:1 IMAX format.
