moviebuff82 commented about AMC Rockaway 16 on Jul 31, 2017 at 7:17 pm

Went to see “Dunkirk” in auditorium #1 and the screen was flat, with the preshow in flat followed by trailers in both flat and scope aspect ratio followed by the movie which was shown in 2.20:1 which was the same format used for 70mm prints. 35mm prints use the 2.39:1 ratio while the digital imax version is 1.9:1. The projection was pretty good and colors popped out nicely. The sound mix was pretty loud and the bass was thumping too. Dialogue was kinda hard to understand although there’s hardly any words spoken in some scenes due to the heavy action in the movie. I bet hearing it in imax would be more painful than seeing it in regular. The movie was entertaining for what it’s worth. Progress on Dolby Cinema is moving along just fine.

I think the chinese is the largest in North America if I’m right. And that’s a laser imax. It’s also the tallest. The imax in Rockaway is the largest screen in morris county, nj.

moviebuff82 commented about Christopher Nolan’s new film Dunkirk is being projected on 70mm film in 125 theaters on Jul 29, 2017 at 6:13 pm

For digital 2k and 4k presentations of the movie the aspect ratio matches that of the 70mm print; the 35mm version is the 2.39:1 version; the imax 2k digital version is the 1.9:1 version with 65mm scenes in 2.20:1 and the intro in 1:1. Trailers for the 70mm prints are Blade Runner 2k49 (scope) and Justice League (flat). Audio is provided by Datasat (F/k/a DTS). I’m surprised that Nolan prefers 5.1 for his movies instead of 6.1 or 7.1 and beyond. The look of his movies when seen on bluray are much better than any other director since it’s more film like and not digital. I saw Power Rangers on bluray and noticed some jarring cinematography. It was shot on Red and looked sharp but there were frames that were skipped. On Nolan’s films, u can see minor splices and jump cuts from regular to imax form. For TDKR, the aspect ratio increases to regular in one scene while in Hunger Games Catching Fire, the screen opens up during the climax.

How’s the audio for 35mm? Is it Dolby Digital, Dolby Stereo, DTS, or SDDS?

If Nolan wins best director much like Heath Ledger won a posthumous award for TDK, he’s gonna be a legend.

I think Dunkirk will have legs if it holds up in the next few weeks kinda like Saving Private Ryan did years ago. That film was nominated for an Oscar for best picture yet lost out to Shakespeare in Love. Hopefully Nolan’s latest movie wins an Oscar for best picture if it gets any nominations. Dunkirk is doing great in Europe especially Dunkirk, France where the movie takes place. I wonder how Asian audiences, especially China, will react to this movie when it opens overseas in the next few months. The imax figures are huge and should provide some much needed cash to Imax stock as stocks of that nature in general have fallen as opposed to the overall stock market. I think Dunkirk will sell well on Bluray, where hopefully they keep the imax ratio intact much like how they treated Nolan’s other Imax filmed movies including Interstellar, The Dark Knight, and its sequel which was the last good Batman movie.

Which auditoriums have the best surround sound? I think the Imax one is ok and the larger auditoriums can support up to 7.1 surround sound.

My mistake. On Saturday morning the movie ran 30 minutes late for imax but everything went smoothly. Dolby cinema opens August 1st.

5 years ago this past week during a midnight showing of TDKR everything changed. This forced exhibitors to show Thursday night advance showings at earlier times and to increase security around the theaters.

I saw on the news that this theater’s parking lot was the site of vandalism of cars. Security needs to be stepped up at this place.
