Is it still for sale? Maybe someone can buy it like AMC and renovate it with recliners and reserved seating.
Does this theater have recliners and reserved seating?
I hope this theater gets recliners like some of the AMCs in nyc.
No recliners at this theater, though.
Out of all the movies which one has been played the most?
This theater is showing Captain America Civil War in RPX, 2D, 3D, and 4DX.
Too bad Civil War isn’t playing in dolby cinema at this location yet they keep Jungle Book.
Isn’t the Loews the only one with stadium seating besides the imax theater in this venue?
With the ziegfeld no longer showing world premieres of big movies, this theater is filling in the void for east coast premieres.
Also reserved seating makes it a plus. The audio speakers are also more spacious than most digital imax theaters in smaller multiplexes. I can’t wait until they install recliners in the imax as well as laser projection. Prices at the LS are higher than other theaters in the northeast. The most expensive are 3D, Atmos, and IMAX. Maybe Dolby Cinema at AMC could come to LS.
How does the digital imax at LS compare to Rockaway? The one in Rockaway is big and great for widescreen scope movies as well as flat movies too.
Yes. Remember when Star Wars Episode I came out and most of the Loews Cineplex theaters wouldn’t show it? http://www.nytimes.com/1999/05/15/arts/manhattan-s-loews-screens-won-t-show-star-wars.html
With AMC Empire 25 not showing Civil War in imax, this theater, along with its sister theaters in Kips Bay and 34th Street, will show it in digital liemax.
alpinedownhiller, you mean the one in rockaway right? They are showing it one showtime in the morning followed by jungle book for the rest of the days. Next weekend captain america civil war arrives and there’s split showtimes between imax 2d and imax 3d.
Name should be changed to AMC Crystal Run 16 after the renovations were complete.
Same for Loews Wayne and Wayne Preakness.
how is it?
The Jungle Book will be shown in digital liemax 3d this weekend, followed by Beautiful Planet, then captain america civil war, then alice. I think Warcraft will be the first one to be in laser imax.
It’s already in place this weekend.
This theater is being renovated with recliners at the end of the year much like its sister theater in Seacourt. Name should be changed to Loews and not Loew’s.
compared to AMC Rockaway, it’s quite the opposite of peanuts.
When did AMC Empire 25 first get digital projectors? I know the E Walk had a digital 8 channel sdds presentation of Final Fantasy The Spirits Within nearly 15 years ago. I think they stopped showing 35mm film around 2010 or so.
The quality is much sharper if one person wears eyeglasses if their vision is blurry which i have without glasses. The IMAX theater in Lincoln Square is soundproof compared to most AMC Imax theaters.
Which Sony stopped doing in 2007. Surf’s Up was the last movie to feature 8 channel SDDS according to Wikipedia. Giles, most theaters that were equipped with 8 channel recievers replaced them with Dolby Digital surround ex, 7.1, and atmos. Atmos and home is similar to what SDDS would’ve been at home. Sony never developed a home version of SDDS for media consumption yet the movies that were mixed for SDDS also were mixed for dolby digital and dts and pcm.
I wonder if watching a laser movie in 3D could hurt someones eyes more than plain digital 3d imax. The resolution of the image is akin to what you see on a phone or tablet screen or 4k tv display but bigger. Remember, home 4k is lower resolution than properly projected 4k.
