Last night went to a 7:40 showing of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Was not dissapointed. Very entertaining film. Great cinematography, including some shots that were filmed using the Phantom HD camera that looked sharp. The sound was awesome. Lots of great trailers, including the Dark Knight Rises trailer. Only gripe was that there was one guy handling tickets with a long line, and then another cashier came in. They also had a seizure warning card at the box office for the twilight movie, from which I didn’t have any seizures. They also offered free MI:4 small posters, not to mention offering gift cards. Happy festivus and merry xmas and a happy new year next year!!!

Today is a big movie day. Tintin is being shown in blown-up Liemax 3D, regular 2D, and real D 3D, Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol is showing in digital 2D (the imax version has 30 minutes of footage, including the famous climb by Tom Snooze over the largest building in the world), and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is being shown in 4k, the 10th film to be mastered at that format, which is a milestone. The next 3D movie to come out is the Darkest Hour, which looks like Ghostbusters meets Aliens. Hopefully people will come back to the theaters as the shopping is done, as the box office has been on a slump the past few weeks. Ticket pricing remains steady.

AMC is running a great promotion where if a family buys 3 tickets to Arthur Xmas, Happy Feet Two, Muppets, or Puss in Boots, they get a fourth one for free. Just like movie passes, surcharges do apply (fake IMAX, digital 3D). So much for jolting the weak box office where there’s nothing good to see right now.

I plan on seeing Hugo 3D tomorrow at this theater, although they’re showing fewer showtimes…btw, I hear that WB will show the Dark Knight Rises trailer before MI IV in IMAX digital. Hopefully it has some IMAX footage. I think MI:4 will make more money than the current IMAX 3D movie Happy Feet two. About 30 minutes of footage was filmed in IMAX for this movie. I wonder how many minutes of footage will be used for Dark Knight Rises?

BTW, the new Tom Cruise movie will open 5 days before being shown in sharper digital projection in normal theaters. The next 3d movie to come out will be Tintin, which has been out for some time in Europe and enjoying a huge success. I grew up with Tintin from watching the HBO cartoon as well as the 1960’s dubbed series, so hopefully this one is pretty good.

Yup. I hope they improve the IMAX theater’s projection.

Last week on tuesday night went to a screening of “The Muppets” in one of the big auditoriums. It wasn’t that crowded. Presentation was pretty good and the surround sound was awesome. One minor thing that I didn’t like was that were was a crying baby during the show. The Toy Story short was pretty funny.

Went to see Twilight 4.1 last night at a packed house in Rockaway. The presentation was pretty good for a digital movie, especially the special effects. Sound was great, and the audience behaved great.

advance tickets are now on sale for several big december releases, including Girl with Dragon Tattoo and War Horse. My Week with Marilyn is now playing, as well as The Descendants, alongside Muppets as well as Hugo in 3D as well as Arthur Xmas in 3D. The next IMAX movie to play will be MI: 4. Some of the scenes in that movie were shot with imax cameras. The trailer for Dark Knight Rises will be shown with Sherlock Holmes 2 the same day that the prologue will be attached to 70mm IMAX prints of MI: GP.

Happy 5th anniversary, AMC Rockaway 16!!! Here’s to the next 5 years, if this theater still does good business.

This weekend, Happy Feet Two is in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D. The new twilight movie is on multiple screens. Next weekend, Hugo and Arthur Xmas come out in 3D and the Muppets are back. I read on IMDB that the Muppets were shot in 4.5k on the Red Epic One camera, just like Contagion.

Harold and Kumar is showing on two 3D screens, Puss in Boots is showing on one 3D screen and one imax 3d screen. Tower Heist is on two screens. No ticket price change yet. Maybe by the holidays it will go up to $11.50….

Advance tickets now on sale for Harold and Kumar 3D Xmas…which looks kinda silly but should be a hoot. Tomorrow snow comes to Rockaway which will affect the theater, as there’s a sold out performance of Don Giovanni (Met) that day.

Opening this friday at this theater, Anonymous, In Time (on two screens), Puss in Boots in three flavors (digital 2D, 3D, and Imax 3D), and The Rum Diary. Next week Tower Heist opens, and two weeks from that Twilight 4.1 opens.

New this fall at amc rockaway 16…hot fresh foods like pizza, breadsticks, and usual hot movie food to go along with an ice cold drink to cool the food down while watching very little original films…too many sequels, remakes, and movies based on true stories that we’ve seen too many times. BTW, here’s a list of movies that are coming soon to this theater that could whet your appetite… http://www.imdb.com/list/RK8Ftk4kSlU/

went to see the movie Contagion in regular 4k 2D in the smallest screen, number 12, that seats 125 patrons, and it was not that crowded. The presentation was pretty good, with fluid images and sharp text and subtitles. The soundtrack was clear and very loud. I also watched a new policy trailer that features muppets due to the new Muppet movie coming out this thanksgiving, which I can’t wait.

I went to see real steel in the liemax screen….projection was a bit soft but fluid, and it was very bright. Sound was awesome and the only trailers to fill the imax screen were those for arthur christmas, MI:4, and Immortals. Didn’t see the war horse trailer, which was dissapointing. One thing i noticed…at the end of the preshow, they had a countdown clock on the lower right corner of the screen , which became blue, and was set at 4 minutes, then the movie and trailers began.

regarding the darkness issue with moneyball…this is due to the film being shown with the 3d lenses on rather than the light fading out. AMC needs to fix these issues soon. Hopefully they improve the IMAX projection when Dark Knight Rises comes out.

Looks like according to Movietickets.com…The closest theater to have Ghostbusters will be AMC Wayne, and New Brunswick.
