Also, FWIW, the seats did seem to be very slightly asymetrical. I could be wrong, but it felt more like seat 23 is center rather than between seats 21 and 22. (but with such a wide screen, a few seats this way or that still doesn’t feel too far off, even for 3D where being dead center is very important IMO- in fact, I sometimes wonder if people who don’t like 3D don’t like it because they don’t sit dead center)

Saw Last Jedi in Laser IMAX 3D here. This time my glasses had no issues, none of the problem where the right eye coating was like half missing. Perfect 3D corner to corner with zero ghosting. Awesome quality. Much better 3D than regular IMAX and even moreso compared to Real3D. Deep blacks, nice contrast, more detailed. Fantastic.

Not sure what happened last time, both our glasses had the exact same problem where the right eye seemed to be coated only in the center and if you eye spacing didn’t exactly match that, HORRIBLE double vision for the right eye. Not sure if they shipped them a whole new set of glasses, went through them and replaced all the bad ones or whether it was just total bad luck last time to get two of just a few bad ones or this time total good luck to get two of the few good ones (probably not this considering lack of any other recent complaints).

Anyway, it seems the Laser IMAX 3D is working well here now. (Now if only they would start spreading it to more theaters (and if only they would build some more true IMAX locations, there are so, so few, not one in all of northern NJ despite that being one the richest and more densely populated places in the whole country; sure NYC isn’t far BUT as soon as you are over the river it suddenly means a much longer and more expensive trip and something you just do all the time).)

granted with the screen being so super huge here, a few seats this way or that isn’t as far off center as on most screens, but it is still good to know, since if it was non-symmetrical and you already had to chose somewhat out, going one side vs. the other could start putting you somewhat more out there

Thanks, so I guess this is one of the rare symmetrical seats to screen auditoriums.

alpine, if you try book a ticket on a day that hasn’t yet sold one, the first automatic generated option is G22, so that is the center.

So nobody knows what seat is dead center in the renovated IMAX? (talking side to side not front to back and also talking about the rows that have the max number of seats across, so not the front few rows nor the very back row).

bigjoe59, the 70MM will be there one more week as of now till the 11th. Its possible it could go to the 14th. The programs are gone. I don’t know if they are getting anymore.

I forget, what seats are dead center in the renovated IMAX? Is it like 21-22 (although most theaters do not have screen and seats symmetrical, often the entrance pushes seats over to one side more) or more like 24-25?

Hello-

how long will The Phantom Thread be shown in 70MM and how will the program be available?

The Commuter is the next IMAX release, but it is listed as having “select IMAX theaters” so I’m sure The Last Jedi will still have most IMAX theaters. I believe Force Awakens even played here all the way till Deadpool in Feb, but Last Jedi seems to be playing out quicker so I expect its run to end with either 12 Strong or The Maze Runner.

It’s still playing in imax as of this weekend. 12 strong is the next imax release .

mhvbear is correct. Disney requires theaters to have TLJ run for 4 weeks in their largest auditorium. Given that Dolby theaters don’t have that many seats that may be the reason some theaters pulled it.

Disney required theaters to guarantee at least a 4 week run to book Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Thanks. I was just wondering since a lot of Dolby Cinema screens suddenly pulled TLJ even though they had no new DOlby releases either. Jumanji takes over starting Friday. Seems strange to me, at least in one place, TLJ Dolby screenings have been jammed, even as recently as tonight and yet they still switch to Jumanji on Friday!

At least until January 12th since there are no other IMAX releases to replace it with before then. However, it will likely play after that date as well.

Speaking of TLJ, does anyone know how long it will play here on the IMAX screen?

“just one little note for people (like me) seeing The Last Jedi in IMAX here this weekend. While the film did use IMAX cameras for select sequences, it will be a locked scope presentation, and the screen will not be filled for any of those sequences.

Apparently, the director found the aspect ratio switches distracting when he was finishing the movie, and people who’ve seen the film in the UK mentioned there are no IMAX aspect ratio switches."

too bad they didn’t at least keep in one or two, in TFA, I thought it was spectacular when it expanded

Hello-

if the free The Phantom Thread program is 24 pages that must be a record for a free giveaway brochure.

Just a side note. The Phantom Thread booklets are on a table outside the Kings Theatre and next to the door leading to the projection room. If your lucky you might see me as you enter. I always come down to refill my soda.

Not sure if it’s the flagship but many premieres do happen here, especially after the Zigfield closed. Just recently Molly’s Game had it’s premiere here. Other movies like Dunkirk, The Mummy, Rough Night, Ghost in the Shell, a bunch of Netflix movies and many others had their premieres here just last year. (Note: not all were world premieres, some were North America premieres.)

The fact that this theater has numerous film projectors, a unique IMAX, a comfortable position on Broadway and a shape which allows for the building of tents as well as for special set-ups for press and interviews inside certaintly makes it a very attractive place for premieres. Sometimes studios just use the theater to shoot interviews and do press there. It’s a very popular location by them.

Is the Lincoln square theater still the flagship location for AMC for world premieres ?

Thanks, BigJoe. The Phantom Thread ebay link describes that booklet as 24 pages. The Hateful Eight program that I have is 14 pages, counting from cover to back. All of these current booklets (Victoria and Abdul included) being discussed have been free, whereas in the original Roadshow days those souvenir programs were purchased. It is really is delightful that studios are going to the effort to provide these nice materials for moviegoers.

People are selling the brochure already. Here’s what it looks like.

Hello-

the brochure handed out free when I saw Victoria and Abdul at the Paris was 4 pages but elegantly and beautifully designed.

From what I’ve read elsewhere (email from AFI Silver), The Phantom Thread program is freely handed out. I attended last weekend at Paris of Victoria & Abdul but did not know of any program. What did Victoria & Abdul program look like? a real program like The Hateful Eight one? or a couple page brochure?
