It’s a pretty good guess. The Chinese IMAX theater in Hollywood is doing the installation now, reopening 4/2 with laser projection and new sound.

well maybe next time someone on this board goes to this complex, they can speak with management and get facts on this instead of rumor and innuendo.

right now there seems to be a gap in fandango advance tix. So maybe april 16th to the end of the month they’ll do the laser install and then screen avengers 2. This is just my guess/opinion… . I don’t see them doing it during summer.

from what I read only one scene was shot in IMAX for ‘Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens’

According to IMAX: “Lincoln Square is signed on, however we have not announced additional information at this point.”

The IMAX install for the new laser system also involves adding additional speakers (side wall plus four in the ceiling).

i agree. And Dolby atmos is in empire 25 and ls. Auro 11.1 is in other theaters such as regal.

There are a lot of variables for Star Wars. I just figure they have more time before release date. I don’t think they will employ a “Nolan film workflow”. There doesn’t appear to be a lot of imax shot—-its not like Batman. I think Imax will push High Brightness 3D & Rez so to compete with competitor Dolby Vision.

I’m not sure….star wars was shot on 70mm Imax and 35mm film. They should keep the projector.

celboy on March 5, 2015 at 8:03 am

I guess they would need a couple weeks in april to do this.Probably more lasers required than any other previous screen install due to screen size. That & a busy summer schedule…..I wonder exactly when. I am hoping Star Wars has it.

Any chance this new IMAX projector will be installed by the time Avengers Age of Ulton comes out?

They supposed to install the new imax projector according to the manager owned lincoln Square 13

theatrefan on February 14, 2015 at 10:22 am

Isn’t it supposed to be installed later this year? That’s what the manager told me when I saw Interstellar there last year.

any word on when laser projection comes to the imax theater?

How was the mad max trailer in 3d?

celboy on December 17, 2014 at 2:49 pm

The Hobbit Marathon was entirely HFR. They showed the new Mad Max trailer before the 3rd movie.

moviebuff82 on December 17, 2014 at 2:26 pm

How was hobbit 3d did they show the star wars trailer in 3d?

And yes, Interstellar was one of the greatest expieriences I ever had in a movie theatre. Awesome movie.

markp on December 10, 2014 at 5:03 am

Kurtpvincent, I agree with you on 2 points. I saw Interstellar in 70mm film at the Ziegfeld, and I too, as a projectionist of over 38 years also love film. These days I am a stagehand, who works occasionally at a performing arts center that do movies, but they are all digital or DVD. I hate it, but its an evil I must live with.

moviebuff82 on December 9, 2014 at 3:15 pm

The reason this place is popular is that they have exclusive engagements of big movies before their nationwide release. Almost every major motion picture since 1994 has been played at this theater to sold out crowds despite the high ticket prices, with the IMAX theater the real deal. I wonder if they’ll have 70mm projection for Quentin’s new movie The Hateful Eight when it opens next year.

Kurtpvincent on December 9, 2014 at 1:02 pm

I had the pleasure of seeing Interstellar in IMAX 70mm film. One of the greatest cinematic experiences of my life. Definitely top 10. It was my first true IMAX and I am forever changed! I also got to see the new Star Wars trailer in full 70mm IMAX. MIND BLOWN. Amazing theatre. I am going to see Inherent Vice here thursday night. Looks like it will be digital. Which I am bummed about because I am a huge film lover, but I already got my tickets. Anyhow, I love this place.

moviebuff82 on November 30, 2014 at 12:47 pm

Yup. Does this theater still have SDDS equipment as well as 35mm from opening day? Also dts and dolby 5.1.

celboy on November 30, 2014 at 12:38 pm

So you are saying you believe this was projected on imax film?…Everything was 2.39 until the falcon shot……$$$$ teaser…I figured there was no more space on the platter due to Interstellar’s length. But I guess now 88 secs of enough space.

moviebuff82 on November 30, 2014 at 11:12 am

Happy belated 20th anniversary to this theater!!! The teaser trailer for the Star Wars movie was shown in 3D, 2D, and imax 2d. The imax trailer ends with the millenium falcon flying against the backdrop of tie fighters, full screen style. That footage was shot on real 70mm IMAX film.

Except that the 1998 story was pure hype and not only did the trailer not improve grosses anywhere, few left after the trailer.

moviebuff82 on November 24, 2014 at 5:10 pm

Starting on Black Friday, the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be shown before every movie at this theater according to AMC’s Facebook. No showtimes for the weekend until tomorrow night so tickets will probably sell fast for die hards to buy a ticket and leave the theater in droves just as they did with Phantom Menace back in 1998. This is one of 30 theaters nationwide that are screening the preview before its wide release next month as well as online.

celboy on November 14, 2014 at 8:21 am

OK the tuesday shows of hobbit 3 are listed as HFR but the marathon on monday is listed as 3d only..I sure hope its HFR for all 3…can there server hold all 3 movies at her?
