Ok, I’m going to say this just once. As an official volunteer here, I’ve asked & gotten the removal of some of his comments. I left the 2-24 comment because frankly it didn’t go so far as some of the more offending posts. But, if everybody doesn’t stop attacking everybody, more posts are going to disappear. And, notably, stick to the cinemas. Discuss IMAX as much as you like. There may be plenty of reasons to cite presidential candidates but NOT on this website.

Whatever happened to Tinseltoes who always used to post on this site?

I am not at all surprised the ‘Deadpool’ is being kept on the IMAX screen. It made 55 million this past weekend and will probably be held at least another 2 or 3 weeks. ‘Gods of Egypt’ hasn’t even been reviewed yet. Not a good sign.

Deadpool is scheduled for another week in IMAX, I was hoping to see Gods of Egypt this week. This is getting really sad, we already missed the Revenant and the Finest Hours(two great IMAX movies)at LS13’s giant IMAX screen, and Gods of Egypt will be the 3rd missing IMAX movie at this theater in just one month! I’m afraid we won’t be able to see many of our favorite IMAX movies at LS13 in the future. I’m starting to hate LS13’s decisions over the past few months, not to mention the renovation has still not started after we have been waiting it for months.

It’s the best theater in NYC, but it’s not the real IMAX. Anyone has any news about the renovation?

The LeFrak Imax the is basically an Proscenium arch theater with a large screen attached to a steel frame. They converted to 4k digital projection with Dolby 3d. No stadium seating!!!

According to online reviews posted by Google users, this theater will be renovated in a few months in order for laser to be installed in the imax screen.

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.

amcbayaza13 and xbs2034: Thanks a lot! If LS13 is gonna show it for one week, It will be another sad story to not have laser by that time.And I may not go watch it if this film is only played @AMNH. I have been there many times, it will be weird to go there just to a 45 min film.lol

Wish there would be a big turnaround and surprise us with a real quick renovation @LS.

Neither the Museum of Natural History nor the IMAX website says anything about Beautiful Planet locations yet.

Typically what happens with documentaries like this actually produced by IMAX themselves (not some nature documentary company) is they play in the NYC multiplex locations for a week or two before moving onto a longer run at museum sites.

BTW Is The Beautiful Planet going to be shown @LS13? or @AMNH? Or both?

It’s really sad to know laser IMAX won’t be ready for BvS :( we have been waiting for a long time, and It’s very likely laser won’t happen before this summer.

10 Cloverfield Lane IMAX tickets already on sale for March 10th on, and the seating chart is the exact same as current IMAX set-up (whereas they will change it with the renovation). So yeah, barring a surprise turn-around, not happening for Batman v Superman.

Unless they do it between BvS and the start of the summer movie season with Civil War (which also has scenes shot with IMAX cameras), don’t bet on it happening for a while.

As for the Museum of Natural History, it just shows nature/science documentaries, never Hollywood features.

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.

waterguy56 on February 12, 2016 at 11:54 am

Still no news about the renovation, Deadpol is scheduled to Wed. now, so I believe the renovation will not begin next week. This left the earliest starting date to be Monday Feb 22th—– probably the last chance to have laser before BvS.

Screw lieMAX real 70mm Films IMAX projection is way better than the lieIMAX

Lmao yeah I did and it made me think of LS13 and if they are getting the upgrade. Really don’t want to see it in fake imax like star wars but I probably will because I’m weak.

Looks like mrwipe saw the new BvS trailer.

Any update on when(if) they are getting the laser projection system? It’s no worth the money to see any Imax films here because they are all in Liemax format and only use a small portion of the screen.

Actually this was originally opened in November 94 under the “Sony Theatres” nameplate. In April of 1994 Sony, which owned Loews at the time announced all of the Loews Theatres would be renamed Sony Theatres, all of the signs were changed to Sony for all of the existing theatres here in NYC except the Oriental in Brooklyn, which luckily did not have to suffer that particular indignity. The largest regular auditorium in this complex was named “Loews” as a homage to the original Loew’s 72nd Street theatre. About 3 years after the name change Sony Retail Entertainment decided to go back to using the Loews Theatres name again. This theatre and the Metreon in San Francisco were among the last complexes to be re branded from Sony to Loews.

AMC owns the Loews name so they can keep it if they wish. When AMC has totally redone other multiplexes with recliner chairs, etc. at least sometimes they did remove the Loews name. This one was built as a flagship of Loews & is well known in NYC by that name, so it could perhaps stay even if the whole theater is redone.

but what if they decide to keep the original loews artwork during the modernization AMC Lincoln Square 13 ?

The only renovation that has been talked about is laser projection and new seating in the IMAX theater. I don’t think anything has been planed for the rest of the complex. It would be nice if they left some of the more “high end” theaters with the Loews name unless AMC is required by the sale to change that at some point.
