Even with the recent changes to this theater, this place still brings in the big bucks along with that other top theater in Lincoln Square which will get the laser IMAX first before Empire gets it.
With a name like Playstation Theater, what’s next, Xbox Theater or Nintendo theater? Not too far from Playstation theater there are Microsoft stores as well as Nintendo NYC (f/k/a Nintendo World at Rockefeller Center). Yankee Stadium also has Playstation kiosks in the museum not to mention the Sony advertising sign at the field. When it ran as a movie house, around the time I was born, The Dark Crystal had its world premiere there, during which Jim Henson and company brought puppets from the film to the premiere. That movie soon became a cult classic and a worldwide hit.
Maybe AMC Loews Lincoln Square or Village East to name a few places to show 70mm film, JackIndiana.
Thank god for watching movies at home where you can lower the volume to an acceptable level. My ears are very sensitive to real sound rather than movie theater sound such as crying babies and fire alarms and thunderstorms. If Laser IMAX surround sound sounds like real life I’ll go for standard surround sound.
I can’t wait until LS gets recliners like its sister theater, the 84th street six, did a few years ago, in all of its screens.
The Michael Kay Show on the YES Network and ESPN Radio 98.7 FM mentioned this theater alongside other New York City theaters that the radio hosts have went to recently. Last year marked 30 years since this theater opened, during which for a time the parent company of the theater sold the theater business to TriStar which in turn had some of its movies being shown there alongside Columbia movies well into the late 1980s when Tristar was bought by its sister company and Coke sold CPE to Sony, which in turn put in one of the first SDDS units in the theater for the launch of Last Action Hero which was a fluke.
Now owned by Carmike Cinemas since 2014, which will merge with AMC at the end of this year.
Are all screens 4k projection with the exception of the digital IMAX?
Most tourists who go to this theater opt for the IMAX auditorium since it’s the largest screen in the area despite not showing 70mm film anymore. The reserved seating for the IMAX makes it complicated for people who want to find a good seat in the house and also the high ticket price is nothing to sneeze about.
The shape of the theater the exterior didn’t change that much. The places that surrounded the theater have changed. Usually after a movie at the Tenplex, you can go to dinner at Fuddruckers and go for a grub. The signage outside the theater also used surround sound symbols to show which movies were being shown in DTS or Dolby Digital.
According to online reviews posted by Google users, this theater will be renovated in a few months in order for laser to be installed in the imax screen.
In addition to the one in Paramus that will open soon.
the theater is now called roy’s hall.
recently recliners were installed.
recliners were installed at this theater recently.
most recently recliners were installed at this theater when Bow Tie took over.
This theater is going to be 22 years old this thanksgiving holiday, its showing its age just like other Sony/Loews theaters in the country that were built in the early 90s.
cbs this morning is doing a piece on this right now, very good.
If you want to go see 70mm IMAX go to the Lefrak imax..the only place left in NYC to show real film on a giant screen.
What movie was the most famous out of all the movies to play at this theater? I say to me I think of the Star Wars movies that started with the Special Editions and continued through the prequels and then Episode VII. Sadly its sister theater in Chelsea will show Episode VIII and IX for the foreseeable future. I sadly didn’t get to go to this theater like my dad did back when movies that came out started out at this theater. He actually enjoyed watching Apocalypse Now in split surround 70mm dolby stereo on a decent size screen. I got to experience it the same way on DVD in both the original cut that was shown at this theater and the expanded version in the 70mm ratio. The bluray release of AN shows the movie in HD in its correct 35mm ratio.
Has the filmforum shown 3d movies?
Nice black and white filter.
