if you’ve never been to this theatre, then why in the name of all things holy do you actually care what it costs and what the parking structure is like?
I’ve an idea- go to one of these places that are so important to you- take some pictures, get some first hand information and come back.
People hear a lot of things, who is to say that they are right. Validate it, come back with documented proof
There’s a lot of complexes like that in various regions around the country and world for that matter.
What relevance does that comment serve to this particular theatre, what makes it so special it deserves mention?
It’s still being shopped around.
If it’s sold, considering the neighborhood it is in, I doubt the theatre would even remain.
Anyone who would have set foot in this place would know that AMC style recliners is an incredibly ridiculous idea. Reserved seating maybe.
Here’s a link to an article about this stunning bookstores in the world (former movie palace) from the Vintage News…
(if someone wishes to hotlink please do- thanks)
Those to Rivest266 for the advert uploads. This one confirms what I was hoping about this venue, located in Beautiful Downtown Burbank.
so a high rise is going to do damage to businesses? What’s your logic there?
Aren’t those kids a little young for you to be photographing them randomly like that? That’d explain the shakiness of the photo. Guess that uploaded by “accident”
I’m sure that AMC will get to them. If the Lincoln Square venue is any indicator NYC isn’t a prime market for them to do renovations right now after 84th Street.
You’re stating the obvious, I really fail to see what purpose it serves.
The MacGuffins looks to now be open. But since I’m at early shows, I’m not 100% sure. Perhaps Michael can co-oberate.
Also I was very pleased that I was able to add my ticket to my Apple Wallet and the kind gentleman just scanned the QC code and I went along my way. Some venues were printing out a ticket, which I found wasteful.
The concession stands & ticket lines have special sections for AMC Stubs premier members.
to follow up on Cliffs post- yes there is LASER IMAX at this venue. Received reports from a dear friend who attended a screening of “Star Trek- Beyond' with his husband and raved about the sound and picture quality. The image filled the screen and great time was had.
that would have to put vindanpar’s visit sometime in the summer of 1974 as Chinatown opened June of that year. The Shubert theatre was a quick walk from the State.
The cast of “Over Here” also included Marilu Henner.
For saps, I fail to see how Franz Schubert could have played Broadway as he passed in 1828 as resided mainly in Vienna and never traveled, so unsure of what the reference has to do with anything.
any co-oberating evidence to that rumor?
Did you walk past?
Read something on SocketSite or SFIst or like site?
please provide information- thank you.
What does Mr Zoltera’s sexuality have to do with this “cinema memory” and wheter or not that’s why you were terminated?
conversion to the storage facility you mean? I was by there myself during my recent visit to Chicago ( just to the Home Depot) and myself and friend remarked what a waste it is. It will be nice for the neighborhood to have something.
Visiting Chicago or a resident of the Windy City and surrounding region?
I can’t emphasize how entertaining that the tour of this amazing venue is. I had the great pleasure to take it yesterday (July 11, 2016) – you learn about the history, and guided on a tour throughout the palace learning of it’s great history, architecture – even great story about the organ.
It was a treat to be able to get on stage at the end of the tour, then visit the dressing rooms. The walls leading up are worth the price of admission alone as the performers who played there signed them.
Yeah, the timing of this is perfect eyeroll
Amazing. i did an image search of this venue and were rewarded with many photos. That took me a manner of 25 seconds.
Pity that someone whom is so concerned with such a piece of trivial information would be more concerned with being sure that this building has a photo representing it.
That’s nothing new here. Instead of consulting corporate and getting facts- rumor and innuendo are flung around here as fact.
I’m sure Tommy Dreamer has broken many a seat here.
Considering the performer Cat Stevens has changed his name to Yusef Islam, I’d be very cautious in how I handle that package. Sounds unusual to me, actually, showing up 50 years later and knowing how those Muslims can be.
I hope you doused it in water or called the FBI or Homeland Security.
Interesting tidbit UncleMaui.
We’d like to presume that you mean the 1972 of the Poseidon Adventure with Gene Hackman? Aliens came out in 1986, so that would mean you were employed there for pernt near 14 years. Well done, UncleMaui, Well Done indeed.
With 14 years of employment I hope you’d regale us with more fascinating cinema tidbits like those, please.
What’s pathetic is that he actually thought they’d do that for one showing. Who the hell really cares?
Since AMC clearly doesn’t think installing laser is at this rat trap is so important, it baffles my mind why the hell all of you are losing sleep over it.
I hope someone’s running a pool on it, I really do. I’d win as I’ll be seeing a laser IMAX 3D (AGAIN) in San Francisco in November in a real theater complex with LASER IMAX. Yeah, they gave it to a real City with a winning baseball team first.
Sorry that the ballroom couldn’t remain functional. That was a fun place to see a show (and a movie prior) oh well, need more buildings that look the same and condos in the City.
The status of this needs to be moved to closed. The venue closed on Sunday May 15th. Another victim of rising rents in San Francisco.

Following up on my post of November 24, 2013, the young man who joined Kieron & JR on the stage is now Kieron’s husband. Alas Mr Ryan has appeared to left the adult business.
