Thanks Joe, but I think you’re about 30 blocks off!
so is it for just this theater or for all of the AMC?
Again, your lack of linkage and citing sources is confusing.
Please in the future, show your work.
google it and find out.
umm, ok- so the link to that NJ.com article about this is where please?
AMC should be embarrassed to have their name on this third world complex. I attended a morning presentation of “Jurassic Park” in Digital IMAX 3D on 4.6.13
I’ve got no idea where to begin on how appalling the conditions there are or how misbehaved the patrons are.
Starting with the ticket girl having her back to people entering so she can do busy work, to both registers not cooperating with cards holding up concession lines. The red circle logo morphing into various expressions being stuck in an endless loop because the computer to start the show misfired. No “warning” to put on your 3D glasses. No messages about keeping it down during the show. Not that this mattered as I was physically threatened twice by patrons when I politely requested that they put the phone away. Elevators that take you to a different part of the complex because the 2nd floor bathrooms are locked.
Then the main floor bathrooms are in the most deplorable conditions. Graffiti, names scratched into walls and urinals. When I needed to use those bathrooms, one of the workers decided to put the 3D glasses recycle bin right in the way of the doors. How about whenever anyone gets up to use the rest room the door opens up and then the bottom right hand corner of the screen gets bright.
I attended a 10am screening. I can’t even wrap my head around what this bleephole is like in the evening. Unfortunately due to my schedule today, I had to go to this one to see the movie I have been waiting to see again for years. Tell ya folks, avoid this place at all costs. Yes, I’ve contacted AMC corporate about my displeasure.
Needless to say, I’ll never be back here again. I’d rather miss a movie than put up with that nonsense again.
huh? I read that a few times and it didn’t make sense, which is this other theater you’re referring to please and where is it located in regards to this one?
Outstanding photos, Ian. Well done!
Early shows are $10 here, just checked this morning for the weekend.
Will there be a parade? Plaque erected when they break a record. I mean, wow 17 weeks for a movie that is obviously making them money being allowed to continue playing there. Such an amazing accomplishment. Maybe they can get Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence for the parade. Please please take photos and post them here. This is so mindboggling. 17 WEEKS!!! WOW!!!!
Is that a record of some kind? If so please cite more about this amazing accomplishment.
oh I found the link with the photo I referenced.
and more copy righted images on this theatre’s photo page as well.
was this really necessary?
So wait, there’s not 16 screens any longer? You said the “theater count” needed to be changed. Is it 15 screens now or is it 17?
If you meant to say the SEATING figure should be adjusted- do you have the new number? If you do, please provide this so they can make the adjustment above.
what is this having to do with this theater? I’m thrilled that you attended the Oscar marathon, however, what does it have to do with this theatre?
that’s well and good- but that still begs the question
have you contacted AMC or the manager of this particular complex about your concerns.
Whenever I see a post like this on the board, I tend to wonder, has the original poster actually contacted the chain, spoke with a manager to try to get a grasp on the booking process. Markp gave some great insight.
I’ve had issues with the AMC’s in my region and usually within days someone gets back to me with an answer. Saves me alot of stress.
Interesting. I did some research and couldn’t find any data about a fire in that area or let alone a death. Any other information would be appreciated to help.
I presume you mean you were in the beige building?
maybe some photos next time?
one would presume credit goes to “Historic Aerials.com” here?
I don’t understand why you feel the need to take shots at the Castro theatre. In fact – they’re only dark one Monday in January, other than that every day on the calendar is full. So, please please do your homework before coming on here. Granted they did take those days off in the past, but now is now.
Your venom should perhaps be placed at Landmark. They shut down 4 screens for independent film in 2012.
If food being offered in a theater is being viewed as competition and since Alamo shows a mix of mainstream and revival- then perhaps AMC and Cinemark have reason to be concerned as well, not just the Castro.
Seems you might a slight tad biased due to your “audience” with Mr. League. No?
I’m thrilled that the Drafthouse is going to open and hope they are so by November 2013 so I can visit. I hope they survive 91 years and beyond.
Hey that’s great. Proud of you.
However, what movie was it?
How was the experience?
What did you think of the venue?
Well I was incorrect.
The name is remaining a “Century” The venue re-opened last night 1/17/13
The governor of Colorado had a great quote, that I personally agree with…
“"We certainly recognize all the different paths that people take to mourn, the different paths that people take to recover from unimaginable, incomprehensible loss,” Gov. John Hickenlooper said at the ceremony.
“Some wanted this theater to reopen. Some didn’t. Certainly both answers are correct,” Hickenlooper said.

sure, go right ahead, I think everyone here would appreciate it if you posted a new photo for this complex.
maybe you should. I contact AMC regularly about my concerns and they are very receptive to it. Especially if its a theatre I visit often and have a connection to.
Coming onto a message board and prattling on without something really getting done, doesn’t help anyone, does it?
