let the resurgence of ‘new’ 70mm shot films begin … NOW !!

The master is playing in 70mm at this theater alongside the digital version of the art house movie. Next weekend an IMAX print of the film produced by PTA will be shown at this theater. It’s breaking records already.

Due to the tragedy in Colorado, security at all AMC theaters including this one are tightened this weekend. Despite that, people are still buying tickets to the new batman movie, especially in IMAX. ONe note….the imax theater showing the film is not showing any trailers before the movie since it’s real imax. The movie’s world premiere was held at this theater this week.

advance tickets for TDKR go on sale one week from today at noon EST; a dark knight trilogy marathon will be shown on July 19th. Batman Begins was the first batman movie to be mastered for IMAX, as the second and final movies were partially to fully shot with imax cameras.

How did you use a different font?

Hello- while i like the hustle of bustle of such

   a large well attended theater two bits of
                   inaccuracies in the individual theaters 
                   must be mentioned. on the plaque for the
                   Capitol it states the theater was torn in
                   1967. so how to explain how i saw the
                   original Cinerama roadshow engagement of
                   2001:A SPACE ODYSSEY in April of 1968. i
                   can't believe such an inaccuracy wasn't
                   fact checked when the plaques were put up
                   in 1994. 
                   also the slight i guess you would call it
                   ornamentation in the individual auditoriums
                   bares no resemblance to the architectural
                   style of the grand old theaters they're
                   named in honor of. for instance the Paradise
                   in the Bronx. so why name the auditoriums in
                   honor of a grand old movie theater if its
                   slight ornamentation bares no relation to
                   the style of the theater its named after?

Friday AMC raised prices for its theaters in the tristate area of NYC. My local amc in rockaway still sells tickets for $6 for am showings, only in nj. Not in NYC, where most of the box office traffic in the area comes from. $21 dollars for imax 3d once prometheus comes out.

bigjoe59 on June 3, 2012 at 1:58 pm

when did the price for shows before go up to $7? i saw MEN IN BLACK 3 last weekend and it was still $6.

celboy on May 15, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Anyone have any idea when Dark Knight Rises Imax
general tickets go on sale?

taketheatrain on May 10, 2012 at 8:34 pm

SDDS is not used anymore, only for sound processors connected with Sony 4K for locations that didn’t change to Dolby Digital

taketheatrain on May 10, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Thats because the converted IMAX theatres. The reason why Lincoln Square didn’t show The Avengers because it was only released Digital IMAX. Since Lincoln Square uses film, their was no print. I wish their was an intermission at 34th Street, the restrooms are far from the auditorium.

moviebuff82 on May 7, 2012 at 3:27 pm

Does the THX-certified Loews house still use SDDS-8 anymore? The last SDDS-8 movie was Surf’s Up nearly 5 years ago. The one thing I liked about SDDS-8 in some theaters in NJ (like in secaucus and clifton commons and Wayne) is the five channel directional dialouge (also used for music and some sound effects) alongside the two rear surround speakers. What was the first theater in NYC to use SDDS-8?

Giles on May 6, 2012 at 9:53 pm

sadly ‘Into the Arctic’ is not one of the better IMAX documentary films – the 3D photography is hit and miss as is the movie itself. $9, the price I saw it at, was four dollars too much if you ask me – twenty bucks… highway robbery

I would love to think that stupid comic book movies just don’t work on the upper west side, but deep inside I know it’s probably not true.

RJEvans on May 6, 2012 at 6:36 pm

I’m quite surprised that The Avengers in IMAX is not playing at this theater. I assuming this is a result of prior contractual agreements for other films. I sure hope The Hobbit makes its way here. I refuse to view an IMAX film anywhere except at Lincoln Square.

Bigjoe59… A digital version of “Titanic” is being shown at the 34th Street. Press a button and you could play an 8 hour film straight through, if you have the memory capacity in the hard drive. With actual film, there is a limit to the amount of footage that can be held in the platter (which is massive and weighs a ton, by the way). An intermission was placed at a reasonable point in the film to allow the changeover at the Lincoln Square IMAX.

mhvbear on May 1, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Because the Lincoln Square Imax is the real deal and is using 70mm film.

bigjoe59 on May 1, 2012 at 2:55 pm


i saw TITANIC in Imax 3-D at the 34 St.Multiplex. it was shown without an intermission which it never had. why would the Lincoln Square show it with an intermission?

ErikH on May 1, 2012 at 6:22 am

“Titanic” is currently being shown in the Lincoln Square IMAX auditorium in what the NY Times advertisements refer to as a “Special 70MM Engagement” (the “Titanic” reissue is being exhibited at other local IMAX theaters but apparently not in this format). I went last night and was highly impressed; 70MM IMAX 3D was a truly immersive experience. The film was presented with a 15 minute intermission; the break occurred shortly after the iceberg collision. Music from the film played during the intermission—-just like the old roadshow days. I assume the reason for the intermission was technical —– the maximum running time for films projected in IMAX is 170 minutes and “Titanic” exceeds 3 hours.

Surprisingly, The Hunger Games won’t be shown in IMAX next weekend but they’ll have it in digital.

moviebuff82 on February 8, 2012 at 3:27 pm

I heard in the news that Imax will team up with Barco to develop advance Laser projection technology that bankrupt Kodak is helping Imax with. Come 2013, no more film-based projection at Imax, which makes it easier for film delivery truck people to carry just a hard drive to the theater.
