Celboy: tickets are on sale for this coming weekend in 4k/3D/120 for Billy Lynn. What happened was this (and the LA screen with that format) had a one week exclusive window to the film before it hit any other theaters.

moviebuff82 on November 15, 2016 at 12:12 pm careful where you take pictures inside these type of theaters…

How come?

Re: Billy Lynn HFR was in theater 2 Kings Theater. It appeared like a standard theater—no atmos speakers above, I believe the movie only runs a week in this mode.

I saw laser at AMC Unversal in Hollywood. It was great. The seats were not replaced Also the TLC Chinese was great also

I try to do my photos when no one is looking

yup MovieBuff- like you’ve got any experience taking photos in theatre complexes.

The Metreon in SF recently upgrading the seating for the Laser IMAX and I saw my third movie there and have been quite pleased with how it turned out. The seats are so much more comfortable, picture quality & sound are incredible, especially being shown on the size screen that the Metreon has.

However, once it does open and people begin seeing movies there, you know people are going to come here bitching & whining about something.

I’ll not be setting foot in it. Considering the excitement level from some posters, I’m concerned the floors & seats will be sticky.

The ‘new’ IMAX theater doesn’t look that much different than other IMAX installs. Seats don’t appear comfy cozy.

Any pics of the theater that shows the new Billy Lynn movie? Did they remodel that to accommodate the tech upgrades for the movie? Or, is the theater just your standard shoebox auditorium with projector upgrade for the HFR 4K projection? I’m reading the sound is supposedly Atmos or Atmos-like.

First person-type films make the best presentations. Just straight up dramas waste the format, imho, unless you like to count the pores on the actor’s faces or note other detractions. :) My memory of Showscan recalls vivid imagery and sound. The thing is the shorts kept repeating some of the shots over that the ‘newness’ of the hyperrealism causes the magic to wear off.

@plagasX uh oh, looks like you were spotted by that guy on the lower left of one of your pics lol

awesome! thanks for the new pics @ plagasX. the IMAX signs are so cool,especially the one inside the auditoritum. Can’t wait to sit on those leather chairs :)

I saw it last night @ 7pm and not crowded either. Some images were quite amazing while some were “a little too close”. I wonder if this format maybe better suited for short form. It is like “being there”. Its almost like another art form. To me, they were experimenting with the technology more than making a film. I also wonder how the normal 24fps deliverable will look & feel…..I would think overall very, very forgettable compared to this presentation. Almost not worth seeing at all in the other format.

CHH32 on November 12, 2016 at 12:51 pm

I just saw it, and the visual is amazing. I would say the picture quality is even better than 70mm/laser IMAX and Dolby Cinema. Well, maybe they are not comparable since Billy’s source format is 4K/120fps, and the screen in King auditorium is small. The 3D is bright, and you can tell it’s real 3D. Although I don’t like the movie, the visual is a once in a life experience.wonder if they are going to keep that expensive projector in that old auditorium.

Anyone interested in seeing “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” in the high frame rate version shouldn’t wait long. Attendance at the Saturday (2nd day of release) 10:00 am show in the Kings auditorium was startlingly sparse—-probably no more than a couple of dozen people. Having been to many opening weekend bargain matinees at the Lincoln Square, that’s an unusually poor showing, especially since the film is playing there exclusively and in only one auditorium.

come wed friday tickets usually go on sale.

Darth_Vader444 on November 12, 2016 at 5:29 am

I’m still looking for Fantastic Beasts in the Lincoln Square Imax but there not available. :(

moviebuff82 on November 11, 2016 at 11:57 am

thanks!!! How’s progress?

@Krolly Sorry, I moved them over to Flickr. Here’s the link:

@plagasX – I can’t seem to find your photos. Where did you post them?

moviebuff82 on November 10, 2016 at 12:45 pm

too bad getting there via car will suck. Thank god for mass transit!!! I like the Imax at AMC sign. Wonder how the grosses for this theater will do kinda like with the TCL Chinese Imax and the one in Boston…

Darth_Vader444 on November 10, 2016 at 8:19 am

Wow! That’s great news that the Imax will be open for Fantastic Beasts!!! The greatest news is that means it will be open for Rogue One!!! :)

xbs2034 on November 9, 2016 at 5:14 pm

Yes, laser IMAX can do the classic 1:43 ratio (was always announced as a feature of the system). The only laser IMAX film I saw, Force Awakens, had a 1:43 sequence, and Batman v Superman and Ghostbusters also used 1:43 for laser IMAX.

celboy on November 9, 2016 at 4:27 pm

Ok so if thats the case, is imax making custom Anamorphic dcps for their laser screens?

plagasX on November 9, 2016 at 12:10 pm

@macnut22 Yup, it’s the same size.

macnut222 on November 9, 2016 at 9:55 am

@plagasX: Does the new screen look as big as the old one?

xbs2034 on November 9, 2016 at 7:16 am

CHH32- people working for IMAX have already confirmed on Twitter that it won’t play Doctor Strange and that their goal is to be ready for Fantastic Beasts. Apparently there are going to take a status look at it in the next couple days (they may be testing the projector and sound for instance)

CHH32 on November 9, 2016 at 6:10 am

@plagasX Thanks for the awesome pictures! It looks really great. Can’t wait to go there next weekend for Fantastic Beasts. BTW, any chances they will be open this weekend? Looks like the rest of the work can be done in 2,3 days…Hope.
