Amazing news! I am told Vintage Cinemas (who run the Vista and Los Feliz) are saving the theater for now!
It’s a no-brainer: the Vista.
AVATAR 3D got great reviews from Dome viewers… wonder if something has changed since then. I never thought it was a good place to put 3D. Then again, I heard a lot of complaints about the presentation SUPER 8 there, too, so perhaps there is just something up in the booth.
They really went all out with the murals ala the Majestic (ermm… Bigfoot) Crest. http://www.ecoronado.com/profiles/blogs/step-inside-the-finished
EDIT: Got confirmation that Thursday will be the last day, as originally announced. I have a few pictures of the original 8 side (some posted here), so I am going to go take pictures of the twin… MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS and THOR will be the two that play there, so if anyone wants to go see one of the other 8, then we can have both sides covered.
Mann just added times taking it through Thursday (before, Sunday was the last day published). Think this only a four-day stay of execution? If it were going to last longer, they would presumably be getting “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” on Wednesday, which they are not.
They are, but they will close for good at the end of July. Now that they are back to running film, all Scope shows are cropped… and there is a sizable tear in Screen 4… Flower Hill was never a nice theater, but it’s excruciating nowadays.
Yes, it’s confirmed: the Village now has midnight tickets on sale for 3D. Luckily, the Vista will be 2D.
Too bad it’ll almost certainly be in 3D at Grauman’s…
That is incorrect, CSWalczak. As I wrote above, Cinépolis will take over the site as their first U.S. location in July. Here are the details: http://www.nctimes.com/business/article_205b68e1-1a37-585c-81f7-a24fef644d40.html
It was sad to see AMC give the two largest auditoriums the ETX and LieMax treatments… Despite being top-masked, they were always GREAT screens to watch movies on. (Now, you’ll have to fork over a hefty premium.) The slightly-smaller neighboring two houses remain very nice, but don’t have quite the same wow factor. The rest of the complex has pretty crappy, small auditorium design (most houses aren’t even 200 seats, I don’t think), but somehow it avoids the ‘bulky megaplex’ feel that so many less elegantly-built Edwards of the same period are plagued by.
Looks like it closed yesterday… and I didn’t even notice! I really would have liked to go see it off, but I wasn’t vigilant enough to check Fandango. :(
It’s only expensive if you go during the day. $3 to park after 6 p.m.
Is that for Grauman’s alone, or Grauman’s + the 6?
Regency is taking over the theater on Friday… The disintegration of Mann Theaters continues… http://regencymovies.com/main.php?theaterId=32
The seats are numbered, so that wouldn’t be very difficult to do. But the Chinese so rarely sells out any more that it’s probably more of an annoyance than anything else (provided they don’t step up their bookings).
AMC box offices basically have a binder full of pictures of acceptable passes, and often employees either don’t know it exists or can’t use their judgment to match the passes.
Reading Cinemas allowed patrons to use Pacific passes for the locations they took over for nearly a YEAR.
This is somewhat misleading — La Costa and Del Mar are being remodeled / turned into luxury concepts by Cinépolis.
They are getting X-MEN instead.
Yep, that is indeed the story.
NC Times story confirms UltraStar has bailed on the remodel and handed it off to an unnamed chain (which my sources say is CinÃ©polis)… just like they recently did with the La Costa 6. Seems doubtful it will reopen for summer when you drive by, and considering that the exhib has decided to remain anonymous for now.
Rumored to be undergoing a remodel at yet-to-be-determined date, according to the Cinema Society, which has changed venues as a result. Fork and Screen, maybe? Eliminating all or part of the Theater 10-12 corridor for a kitchen would work, although the back of the concession stand is pretty big already. They applied for a liquor license several months back.
How is it different than IMAX 3D in terms of “overkill”?
