Don’t let the bedbugs bite.
This theatre had the D-Box motion process in one auditorium but it looks like they have removed those seats.
This theatre had the New York premiere of Paranormal Activity (before the film before popular).
The thief was caught the next morning and the print was returned to the theatre.
So the theatre fails to get Inception but they get Standing Ovation (basically the Mormon High School Musical) at the Chinese 6. How did they sink that low?
That so-called “junky car” was actually considered one of the most innovative for its time.
I first saw this movie when McDonald’s sold copies of it in the mid 1990’s. I’ve probably seen it at least 20 times since then.
I’m guessing that an independent picks this theatre up.
This is on my birthday! Too bad I’m over 1,500 miles away.
Splice should have been a much bigger hit than it was.
Richard Dreyfuss will be spoofing his Matt Hooper character in the forthcoming Piranha 3-D.
I didn’t see this movie until 2002, when I rented it on DVD from a now-closed Blockbuster in Springfield, Missouri. Great movie.
As for Springfield, they didn’t run the film until July 25th, when the Century 21 began a nine week run on it.
The Losers was terrible. The whole film served as a preview of why Chris Evans should not be playing Captain America.
Also, I don’t understand why more films weren’t scheduled on May 28th. Both titles looked weak to begin with so why not put two or three more movies in the mix?
And some titles that I noticed in the photos provided by Cinemark:
A View To A Kill
Return Of The Jedi
All The Right Moves
Return Of The Living Dead
All Of Me
Back To The Beach
I would have gone with Leon (then known as The Professional) for Thanksgiving 1994.
I was at Union Station last month. A good third, maybe half of the place was vacant.
Splice starts tomorrow at the main theatre.
The theatre’s last engagements:
The Back-Up Plan
Hot Tub Time Machine
How To Train Your Dragon (in REAL-D)
Kites (on two screens, one screen playing the recut version known as Kites: The Remix)
Mother and Child
and a pair of documentaries, A Nightmare In Las Cruces and Blood Into Wine
It was three towards the end. Check the St. Louis Post-Dispatch archives (about 1999) if you don’t believe me.
Is it true that this theatre isn’t doing well outside of premieres?
Second half of 2009 suggestions:
8/6 The Other Guys
8/13 The Expendables
8/27 Piranha 3-D
9/10 Resident Evil: Afterlife
9/17 The Town
9/24 Legend Of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga'Hoole
11/19 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I
12/10 The Chronicles Of Narnia: Voyage Of The Dawn Treader
12/17 Tron: Legacy
12/25 True Grit
Right now at the Chinese: A Nightmare On Elm Street. MacGruber starts on Friday.
The Alien preview happened on April 6th, 1979. Then-Fox head Alan Ladd Jr. and many Fox representatives were in attendance along with the heads of the circuits run in the state.
The next three D-Box movies will be Prince Of Persia, Jonah Hex and Inception. I imagine that Prince Of Persia will open at the El Capitan so that probably makes the other two potential day and date engagements with the Arclight.
DreamWorks has signed on a distribution deal with Disney which allows them to handle theatrical, DVD and cable rights on most films (DreamWorks Animation will remain distributed by Paramount and keep its pay cable deal with HBO though since it is treated as a separate entity). When Disney extended their deal with Starz through 2015, DreamWorks titles were offered separately or together. Starz passed on the DreamWorks titles and DreamWorks instead signed with Showtime (their HBO deal ends when Paramount releases the last of the titles from that deal). In short, Disney will be splitting its output between Starz and Showtime. Showtime will get the DreamWorks titles (such as I Am Number Four, War Horse and Real Steel) while Starz will run the Disney, Pixar and Touchstone titles.
