looks as though this is going to meet the wrecking ball.
Plans are to raze the theater for an 8 story building including condos, 7,500 square feet of retail and 24 parking spots.
Evacuation- no direct from AMC Employees- over 4000 guests turned out to a frigid New York City night- this happened at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square.
Here’s the link ( including AMC response and first hand reports) from the Huffington Post.

Story in today’s Philly.com about police needing to be called to disperse a crowd of 400-500 teenagers who gathered in this complex’s lobby around 9pm on 12/16/13.
Detective Williams had this to say …
“The kids were "just milling around the lobby area, the parking lot … just basically being slightly unruly,” Williams said. The teens were not moviegoers."

You’ll be able to see a 1936 photo of the DImond here…
Nice coverage of the rally on 12/10 by KYW Newsradio. Link here [which includes comments from our own Howard Haas]
Even though it’s really a movie theatre all that often Luis V- the former Prince Music Theatre (nee Midtown)occasionally shows movies , it is a single screen, but right now focuses on Bdway style shows and concerts.
It’s important the Boyd be saved, but also that part of Chestnut Street needs work as well.
I’m with you alps
This theater made a bit of news over the Thanksgiving weekend. It seems that due to technical difficulties, another cartoon was played. That of an adult nature. Things were shut down with in minutes. But what about the children?
Was the curtain utilized pre and post show, please Bud?
The Castro was named one of the 10 most beautiful cinemas in the world by the BBC.
Why do you need to fax them? You have a computer. Whenever I’ve not gotten credit for a movie on my Stubs account for whatever reason, I’ve taken a photo of my ticket stub and then emailed the photo and my information to the AMC Stubs website and it’s cleared up in a day or two.
The December 2013 calendar is up. Great assortment of titles, Gravity and Dial M for Murder in 3D. Noir City Xmas. The annual Christmas Eve San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus concert. Kinsey Sicks. Other cinematic standouts include Marx Brothers classics on December 30th and “Singin in the Rain” on New Years Eve
Of major note to those in San Francisco or going to be on December the 16th, a benefit concert to raise funds for the restoration of the Mighty Wurlitzer.
I made a return to the Nob Hill in November of 2013. This was on a Saturday evening for the live show with 2 stars- Kieron Ryan and JR Matthews. During their show, Kieron brought up his boyfriend from the audience to join in.
It was a fun night and interesting program to say the least. Other dancers performed before and after the headliners.
There were women in attendance as well and in the audience- Myself and other male members of the audience were uncomfortable about their being there. But legally- they can not be kept out.
Back in October a member had posted that he heard from theatre personnel that Catching Fire and Hobbit sequel were going to be presented on film. That might have changed though for a myriad of reasons.
Not that it helps folks attending here, but let me throw out that it will be showing in 70MM Imax at the Metreon in SF
Official word from the General Manager of the Loews AMC Metreon that “Hunger Games- Catching Fire” will be screened in 70MM Imax film.
Made a visit to the Bay Street in November of 2013. Saw the Robert Redford movie “ All is Lost”. Presentation went well, I was in auditorium number 1 for this.
The staff was friendly and theatre clean.
The review by the above writer is spot on. The banner ad for Thor was outside the windows and thus covered up the collection of star photos you’d see as you went up the escalator.
Very sad to hear, I was considering checking that out for when they screen the “Doctor Who 50th Anniversary”
The Embarcadero Center Cinema shall be re-opening on November 1st, 2013. So please update accordingly then- thanks to the renovations, there will be SEVEN screens instead of the original 5. Reserved Seating. Four of the “screening lounges” will feature luxury recliners, print at home and mobile ticketing and a beer and wine lounge.
Grand Re-opening features include “12 Years a Slave” and “ Blue is the Warmest Color”. November 8th sees “ The Dallas Buyers Club” open.
Ah Kip Noll, such fond memories of meeting him at another NYC venue called the Follies. One of my favourites back then.
I remember making a special trip up to see this one.
Article about the re-opening (including photos)
Thanks for the update Steven. When I was in town last November, I spoke with the manager who said they’d be switching to digital, but at that time, it wasn’t 100% that they’d be all digital. Sorry to hear that and glad at least for the time being Lincoln Square is keeping some film.
I’m looking forward to checking out the ATMOS, hopefully Gravity is still running. If they’ve got “Ender’s Game” there I won’t be attending.
Anyone attended “Gravity” at the IMAX here? reports of not the entire screen being used coming from the Lincoln Square in NYC and it running digital with prints only being used for “Catching Fire” and “ Hobbit sequel”.
Also, Fandango was selling tickets in DBOX and I am not yet getting confirmation on this- anyone there?
Thanks for that update bear. I almost made the pilgrimage to the Lincoln Square for Gravity. Now I’m happy I didn’t. Maybe for Hobbit when I made my Christmas visit. Thanks again.
IMAX 3D is the way to go for this movie and as close as your eyes can handle. Sound is amazing as are the 3D visual effects, especially certain parts I won’t mention without giving plot away.
Actually, there’s a sliding scale of pricing depending upon what time you attend.
I know the shows earlier in the day are a bit less expensive. Your best bet to figure out what works out best for you , would probably be to check out Fandango’s website or AMC’s. The pricing and times for the shows are listed there.
My apologies for not adding CityWalk and Rave. I found a photo a while back of the 98 boxes of film for the Hobbit in 3D IMAX. Looked like an amazingly daunting task.
