Hidden cameras are great because they prevent movie goers from sneaking into another auditorium. The hidden cameras probably scan a code on the ticket.

have you seen it on HBO lately? They cropped it from the scope ratio and the audio is much lower than the Blu-Ray. Thank god I rented it on disc from Netflix and enjoyed the action. I think the Revanant will be more oscar worthy than Mad Max as history suggests with the exception of Titanic and LOTR: ROTK.

I hope they retrofit the Loews into an AMC Prime theater.

pretty soon they will renovate this theater with new seats as AMC is doing to mostly the Loews locations first and then the other AMC theaters by 2019.

And some of them are shot in IMAX, like Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Intersteller, and his upcoming movie Dunkirk. He is a huge fan of filming stuff in that format. Quentin Tarantino also shoots stuff in 2d too and prefers film to digital. Hence that his latest work was shot in 65mm for 70mm release before a nationwide rollout in a shorter digital version.

The AMC Rockaway digital imax is a decent imax.

This theater was ahead of its time when it opened in 98 and had some competition. Now it has a new one in the name of Regal.

Has anyone seen The Hateful Eight in 70mm in the loews auditorium?

Meadow six opened in June 1982. The Plaza 8 opened in 1987 according to New York Magazine. https://books.google.com/books?id=IeUCAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA66&dq=loews+plaza+8&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAtbTi54HKAhULmx4KHZ4gAQs4MhDoAQgkMAA

On a lighter note, how is Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime? Star Wars is playing there.

I agree with your comment, alpinedownhiller. I’ve seen trailers for movies not coming out in imax shot in flat being shown windowboxed as related to a comment describing the issue while scope trailers span the entire middle of the screen. No masking in the imax screen which is great. Non imax trailers usually get the amc logo and release date along with film logo and rating at the end of each trailer. IMAX trailers usually show the green or red band before the trailer after the crosscheck.

last night star wars held its world premiere that was live streamed by verizon on its website and on fios tv. tightened security as well as lots of fans, stars, and artists. Everyone seems to like it so far.

This theater will show The Hateful Eight in 70mm when it opens on Xmas Day next week.

According to fandango @poland626, Chipmunks 4 is not in 3d and there are regular showtimes. Point Break has reald 3d showtimes only while Star Wars has Imax showtimes. This is the only location in NJ to host the two day marathon and tickets are still available.

@thebrat when i went to see Mockingjay Part 2 in Imax the audio was just perfect as opposed to Spectre where it was too loud. Ticket prices went up a few weeks ago but not that much. This place needs a redo soon as some of the seats are worn out.

maybe when they moved the old Empire building out west from its old location to make room for the 25 screens there were older bedbugs that creeped into the multiplex.

i agree. You mean laser, ridethectrain. Batman v Superman will probably have legs in its imax run before Captain America Civil War kicks off the summer movie season. I think the atmos screen will show Star Wars in better projection than the imax as that movie was mixed in Atmos.

Hope they go away by the time Star Wars opens….I rarely go to Times Square anymore.

I agree, mharmon999. The Paris is to indie and foreign films what the Ziegfeld is to blockbusters.

I Agree, amcbayplaza 13. Mhvbear, this is a popular location since most big movies open here before they roll out nationwide. As for the food they sell, it has changed a lot since it opened in 1994 given the eating habits of the moviegoing public. The ticket prices, the same. My advice for the moviegoer who needs to drive to the city, take the trains and buses as parking near the theater can be as hard as trying to find a space at Yankee Stadium or MSG.

great article, Xavier. I never heard of this theater until i heard the tragic news. I knew the band that played there, they have a cult following.

http://www.polygon.com/2015/10/1/9432529/playstation-theater-times-square-nyc-best-buy i heard about it on facebook. They should change the name on CT. BTW Sony used to have the naming rights to this theater when it was Sony Astor Plaza.
