CHH32- people working for IMAX have already confirmed on Twitter that it won’t play Doctor Strange and that their goal is to be ready for Fantastic Beasts. Apparently there are going to take a status look at it in the next couple days (they may be testing the projector and sound for instance)

@plagasX Thanks for the awesome pictures! It looks really great. Can’t wait to go there next weekend for Fantastic Beasts. BTW, any chances they will be open this weekend? Looks like the rest of the work can be done in 2,3 days…Hope.

In your opinion, do these seats recline like the old ones? Which isn’t a good thing. Hard to determine based on the photos.

Added more pics guys! Seats are now getting installed! For the most part, It looks like they can actually make the November 17th date!

There were regular seats as well.

celboy on November 8, 2016 at 6:03 pm

But wasn’t M the handicapped seats? only a few of those.

mhvbear on November 8, 2016 at 4:43 pm

Last row was M. Row M center was where II always sat. It was the perfect viewing point IMHO.

celboy on November 8, 2016 at 3:55 pm

Last row was row L which I count as 12

Thanks for the pics! From the angle of the picture it looks like the rows have been deepened from what I remember. I count 11 rows, was it always 11? Guessing the new seats will be wider than the old ones? Do we know the new seating capacity of the remodel vs the old configuration?

Thanks for the pics plagasX. Unfortunately I don’t think the Imax will be open in 2016. There’s a ton more work to be done obviously. That’s a killer! :(

tickets might be on sale at the end of the month for Rogue One according to various sources on Facebook.

moviebuff82 on November 6, 2016 at 10:26 pm here’s the new tv spot for the movie.

@FAShaffi if you haven’t been there before, the auditoriums on the second floor are awful – old seats, tight foot space and no stadium seating.

The Loews is the Best non IMAX Theatre 1 with Dolby Atmos. Screen 2 to 5 are good also, but the Empire screen 13 and 18 better than 2 to 5 at Lincoln Square.. Lincoln Square any screen 6 and above are small.

FAShaffi on November 6, 2016 at 8:02 am

this has probably been asked already, but what’s the biggest non-IMAX screen in this theater? I’m trying to book Fantastic Beasts tickets and on the opening Thursday night at this theater they’re showing it in Auditorium’s 4 and 5, just wanna make sure if I see it here it won’t be on a crappy tiny sized screen

Darth_Vader444 on November 3, 2016 at 9:57 pm

Yes My thoughts exactly. Ugh!!! Tickets for Rogue one reportedly are on sale on Tuesday 11/7 and there’s no way Lincoln Square will have Imax tickets. I’m so disgusted! :(

CHH32 on November 3, 2016 at 2:30 pm

@Rmeister23 great great photos!!!! Thanks soooo much for taking them and sharing with us. Kind of disappointed that it looks nothing close to be done

xbs2034 on November 3, 2016 at 5:57 am

Moviebuff82: Fantastic Beasts is being released in both IMAX 2D and 3D (Kips Bay and Penn Station have 2D, Empire 25 has 3D and my gut is Lincoln Square probably will also if it is ready in time), it seems like most Warner Bros IMAX releases do this strategy (In the Heart of the Sea, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad all split between 2D and 3D IMAX showings).

Celboy: yes those Billy Lynn tickets are for 4K/3D/120 fps showings, and apparently here and one theater in LA playing that format will get a one week exclusive window on the picture, with the wide release in standard format moved to Nov 18.

moviebuff82 on November 3, 2016 at 12:39 am

Amazing. Pretty weird that Fantastic Beasts Imax release is 2d while the 3d is only for the smaller screens.

Rmeister23 on November 2, 2016 at 10:01 pm


I snuck in today and took some pics of the theater and its construction status that I’ve uploaded in the photos section. They should be the first two showing. They don’t look anyyyywhere near done. After having talked to the general manager though, she confirmed fantastic beasts will be the first movie to run and they’ll be finished by then. They hope….

celboy on November 2, 2016 at 5:52 pm

Billy Lynn Tix on fandango right now in theater 2. I am assuming this is the premium experience.

Darth_Vader444 on October 31, 2016 at 7:03 pm

Supposedly all AMC theaters are upgrading their seating in the NYC area. If there not recliners I think they will at least have roomier and more comfortable seats than what was there before, but thats not saying much. I’m used to my legs falling asleep from being cramped in such a small space for 2 ½ hours.

ridethectrain on October 31, 2016 at 4:00 pm

No recliners in imax. They lose 400 seats for recliners. AMC Universal Hollywood that is finishing the recliner renovations. The IMAX laser auditorium has the same seats after the coversion to laser. I saw Sully there. Laser was excellent

Darth_Vader444 on October 31, 2016 at 3:54 pm

Hey PlagasX, any updates on when you think the Imax will open? Will Imax tickets go on sale on Nov 7?
