70MM extended for a third week.

This theater is a much nicer theater for indie films as it has all the bells and whistles of a modern multiplex.

I was shocked to learn the nearby Lincoln Plaza Cinema is closing at the end of January because the landlord say construction work is necessary on the 30 year old building. the article i read said the Lincoln Plaza was also getting competition from the more recent Bruin Monroe Film Center opposite Julliard. i have been to both theaters and don’t remember the 6 year old Bruin Monroe Film Center ever playing what can best be called major low budget indies and foreign films. as an example- I don’t remember the Bruin Monroe Film Center ever playing a low budget indie or foreign film on the same level as the Lincoln Plaza’s current films- Mudbound, Wonder Wheel or Darkest Hour.

70MM returns for 2 weeks starting 12/24. The Phanthom Thread. I will be there as projectionist most weekdays till Jan 5th.

moviebuff82 I assume your talking about this format vs IMAX. Dolby has the advantage of the Video wall entrance and the souround sound being in the recliner as those Auditorums use an Dolby designed seat and not the normal AMC recliners. you cant see it here in dolby though the only open NYC location for Dolby cinema is the AMC Empire 25 with AMC Loews 34th Street 14 listed as coming soon.

jeffpiatt on December 17, 2017 at 12:43 pm it looks like this is one of the theaters AMC put a movie collectable store in.

I saw “Star Wars:The Force Awakens” in a commercial movie theater, not in an Imax, so I can’t compare as they have different format sound systems. The new Star Wars movie is fun.

moviebuff82 on December 16, 2017 at 9:04 pm

How was the sound mix compared to Awakens?

HowardBHaas on December 16, 2017 at 5:12 pm

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I saw today at Franklin Institute in 70mm Imax, so I can confirm it is shown only in ‘scope, not 1.43 so it was letterboxed where I saw it. It did have tremendous resolution as to details.

Which theater is better for Last Jedi? IMAX 3D (3D=yuck) or Dolby Digital?

We saw Dunkirk in IMAX. It was one of the great cinematographic experiences of my life. Blade Runner 2049 was good too although there was something rattling toward the front left during loud scenes, maybe a blown speaker coil or a loose ceiling tile or something.

digital3d on December 14, 2017 at 10:05 pm

WHAT? WHAT THE HECK? NO 1.43? Do you have a link to that @xbs2034?

Or did someone see it there tonight and can confirm?

Just one little note for people (like me) seeing The Last Jedi in IMAX here this weekend. While the film did use IMAX cameras for select sequences, it will be a locked scope presentation, and the screen will not be filled for any of those sequences.

Apparently, the director found the aspect ratio switches distracting when he was finishing the movie, and people who’ve seen the film in the UK mentioned there are no IMAX aspect ratio switches.

I Tonya is doing good business at this theater before expanding nationwide in the weeks ahead.

I’m happy that the audience turned out for the 70mm presentation of MOTOE. Not the case for Justice League in 70 at the Cinerama. Although, it’s been many years since I spent three weeks straight making changeovers in a manual 70mm booth it has been a lot of fun! It would be nice if we had more of an audience though.

HowardBHaas on December 4, 2017 at 7:22 pm

Looking at 3D screenings, there’s a set that looks like it will be in the large Loews auditorium for The Last Jedi.

bigjoe59 on December 4, 2017 at 7:14 pm


The Last Jedi won’t be in the Loew’s auditorium?

markp on December 2, 2017 at 3:50 pm

We did very good business with MOTOE. Weekend crowds sold out the theatre (375 seats). Even week night early shows did well. The theatre upstairs ran JL in 70MM for only 9 days. Warners wanted to cut their losses early. We ended up having 83 showings between Nov 9 and 30th. And what helped was this was the only screen showing it in the complex. You had to see it in 70MM or go elsewhere.

Seattleprojectionist on December 1, 2017 at 9:32 pm

I am curious at to what business was like for MOTOE in 70mm? I am one of two projectionists running Justice League in 70mm at the Cinerama in Seattle to very light crowds. Of course, it is playing on a dozen other screens in digital format. There was some talk that we might get MOTOE in 70mm for a week starting December 1 but that fell through. JL for one more week.

moviebuff82 on December 1, 2017 at 3:46 pm

Dunkirk is playing here in 70mm Imax this weekend .

xbs2034 on November 30, 2017 at 6:49 pm

Yes, the footage shot with IMAX film cameras will fill the entire screen. 1.43 in IMAX laser is quite the spectacle

moviebuff82 on November 30, 2017 at 1:41 pm

I wonder if the aspect ratio will be like real Imax rather than digital since the film was shot that way. The conversion on force awakens was ok when I saw it on blu ray 3d although I missed seeing it in liemax 3d.

CHH32 on November 29, 2017 at 1:12 pm

@Darth_Vader444 If you go to Fandango or the AMC Lincoln Square website, you will see Justice League has an IMAX logo above its showtimes while SW8 has an IMAX3D logo — so IMAX = 2D and IMAX3D =3D

Darth_Vader444 on November 29, 2017 at 8:18 am

They worked pretty good when I saw WW in 3D.

alpinedownhiller on November 28, 2017 at 10:36 pm

I wonder if they fixed the 3D glasses here.
