Sir, they don’t have to do anything. They own the buildings and can choose to present any way to see fit. The public will decide how they accept the changes and as they always do, pay with their wallets.
Have you contacted them directly with a letter with your suggestions?
You mentioned this last February.
Im flabbergasted that you haven’t taken the time of the year to not only find out the exact date of the opening, but also to re-centre the google map image above.
That and also help out figure out a better parking scheme for them. Apparently you’ve got a lot of time on your hands.
wow, its been closed for over 2 years and you’re just coming here to pay “your respects”.
I sincerely hope you’re more respectful to family members when they pass.
have you contacted AMC about this? I’m not sure what purpose it is serving here.
and your point being?
you need to get around more. I’ve been in quite a few theaters in which i’ve had to go up and down stairs to use the facilities.
so where did you get that article from?
of course they were.
It’s got more to do with it being around Rockefeller Center and that is where the Christmas Tree, skating rink, etc.
see I can speculate too.
Why does it amaze you or anyone?
To the developers and those whom own the buildings it’s just a piece of real estate.
and c'mon it’s downtown Newark NJ. People need police escorts to get from the train and or parking lots to the Prudential Center.
Do you really think that a single screen theatre in Newark NJ would be a profitable venue?
why don’t you go and see the different versions, then come back and actually give us a real report.
“ From what I heard…” that isn’t really helpful to anyone.
For example, I saw the Digital IMAX 3D in my region and really enjoyed the picture quality, it was beautifully shot and nicely told version.
Not EVERY IMAX 3D showing of this film will have the Star Trek preview attached, please do your homework before coming on here.
I think this member was looking for someone to give him a more definitive answer.
They updated a few of the pages, it’s going to be a 154 minute print. But the 197 minute claim is still on the main page for the festival. THAT is the one they should worry about changing. I’ve had the opportunity to see this movie in 70mm at the Castro in SF. I’m sure that the WR is a fine venue and I’m happy that actual film , esp 70mm is being celebrated- but the size of the screen might not allow full enjoyment of the film. I’ll pass.
In the above mentioned article, please to note that the seating capacity is 1407..(not 1500)
Viz….“. Built in 1922 with a Spanish Colonial Baroque façade, its 1407 seats make this the ideal location to see a movie with 1406 of your favorite friends. ”
i saw this theatre on a tv show on my tv the other day.
the alleged moderators of this site should really shut down comments for this particular theatre out of respect for those who lost thier lives because they wanted to watch a movie.
Is it really important the whys or wherefores right now?
Take that to other websites, I was always under the impression that this place to honor the history of theatres, not allow random speculation to run wild. Shame that is what it’s been allowed to become and why I chose to “come out of retirement” to make my strong feelings known.
Let the victims and thier families in peace, I sincerely hope that the theatre can recover from this tragedy and people aren’t out of work because of this.
I just think it’s so adorable how one particular person finds that they need to be that particular theatre’s reporter.
Like it really matters, putting up bits and pieces of hearsay and nonsense, when if they wait a couple weeks or speak to someone at the theatre if they actually go there, talk to a manager and get the intel and come back and report.
yes, I’m an early bird. I’ve reported my share of spam on here. However one grows tired seeing inane posts in certain theaters where when thats all that they have to say when clearly below it says “stay on topic”
I’ve found many other interesting blogs with great information and none of the drivel.
