thanks to rayman29 for replying. as I said for yearssssssssss and yearssssssssssss the Summer movie season has always started the 1st Fri. in May. so are you saying that the Summer movie season will now be starting the last Fri. in April? I ask since the last week of April has for years been a dumping ground.

The U.S. release date for Avengers was moved a week forward so the release date would be the same for most countries around the world. Disney was concerned it would hurt the U.S. box office to have it released in other countries first because spoilers would be out before people could see it in the U.S. or people would be able to pirate it before its in theaters. Expect release dates for big movies to be pretty much the same worldwide from now on. They’ve become less and less spread out in recent years.

Looks like avengers beat force awakens for top grossing debut of all time…

I thank moviebuff82 for their reply. but I an still of the opinion that for yearssssssssssssssssss that specially the last week of April being a dumping ground(negatively of course) for big studio films. its kind of like an Oscar Bait film that had a long held release between the first week of Oct. and Dec. 31 gets pulled from said release date at the last minute and is released in January you know its a turkey.

I think it’s because of day and date with the rest of the world. The last movie to open around late April or mid april has been the Fast and the Furious movies that all started with Fast Five and went towards Furious 7 and the Fate of the Furious. Even late March has been like that too with the release of Batman V Superman which was terrible and most recently Ready Player One which is almost gone from theatres. I’m surprised that Black Panther is still playing in theatres more than two months after it came out, and is among the longest running engagements for a Marvel and a Disney movie ever. The Jumanji reboot was still in theatres when it came to digital media two weeks before the disc release and still made money. Remember when it took years for Star Wars to come out on home media after it’s first release in 1977? Same thing for ET and Jaws.

for yearsssssssss and yearssssssss the first Fri. in May was the start of the Summer movie season. so i was quite surprised that The Avengers: Infinity War was switched from the 1st Fri. in May to the last Fri. in April. for yearssssss the last week of April has been a dumping ground. i am quite nervous about the switch being an omen.

does anyone know of a website that discusses what happened to films that should have come out by now? every so often I say to myself what ever happened to film x,y or z.

Thanks a lot, Al. I’ll use the Embassy then.

The Embassy was showing “GRAND ILLUSION”, the Alden (Regency) was not advertising and the Lincoln Square was long gone. The NYT Times Machine is your best, but that is what pretty much what I can see there.

guarina on April 11, 2018 at 10:02 pm

Al, But I still need what movie was playing at one of the three, Embassy, Regency or Lincoln Square if there was one. How do you find that?

Guarina, scroll up to “nearby theatres” and you will find some. Start here

guarina on April 11, 2018 at 9:37 pm

Al Alvarez, Thanks. Was there another theater functioning there in December of 1959, either at 1947 or at 1998, or anywhere at Lincoln Square?

vindanpar on April 11, 2018 at 8:42 pm

Loew’s Lincoln Square in 1959. Hmmm…

I wonder what was playing on the Imax screen.

Guarina, the original Lincoln Square burned down in 1950.

guarina on April 11, 2018 at 5:13 pm

I’m writing a novel set around West 72nd Street in 1959 and ‘60. Can anybody tell me what movie showed at the Loew’s Lincoln Square on Friday, December 18, 1959? I said “Anatomy of a Murder”, but don’t really know. I published “Love Letters in the Sand”, where I mention another area of New York. Thanks a lot!

I thank moviebuff82 for their reply. to which if I understand your reply correctly though Snyder didn’t finish shooting JL he did film scenes that were not use din the theatrical cut?

I don’t know why if directors shoot scenes that are not used in the theatrical cut said scenes aren’t included in the dvd/Blu-ray package. for instance after post production work was done the 1st cut of Call Me By Your Name was 4 hours. I would love to know what was in the 1hr.48mins. not used.

moviebuff82 on April 8, 2018 at 1:37 pm

The theatrical cut was too short. I saw the movie and they left out a few scenes that got cut when joss whedon filled in to finish the movie following Mr. Snyder’s daughter committing suicide. The current version that’s on digital and disc has outgrossed the theatrical run. Last jedi on another hand is already sold out on Amazon .

bigjoe59 on April 6, 2018 at 6:08 pm


I thank Peter A. for his reply. It validates my thought that if Snyder didn’t finish directing the film how can there be a “Zack Snyder cut”. which prompts the question- why do people asking for one?

PeterApruzzese on April 5, 2018 at 8:36 pm

“if Snyder didn’t finish directing the film how can there be a Zack Snyder cut?”

There isn’t one. At best, there’s a rough cut of his version with unfinished special effects.

bigjoe59 on April 5, 2018 at 4:55 pm


in WB’s plans to reboot the Superman franchise I enjoyed Justice League wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy more than either Man of Steel or Superman vs. Batman:Dawn of Justice. now as everyone knows Zack Snyder had to leave JL early because of his daughter’s tragic death. now fans have been loudly asking for Snyder’s cut of the film to be released. to which my question. if Snyder didn’t finish directing the film how can there be a Zack Snyder cut?

No, Lincoln Square didn’t charge extra for the 70mm shows of Phantom Thread. You could see it before noon for the $8 matinee price.

Alamo Drafthouse also charges extra for 70mm. Some theaters do that.

bigjoe59 on April 2, 2018 at 5:49 pm


though I frequently come here i didn’t see The Phantom Thread here which is where my question comes in. did they charge extra for the 70MM engagement of TPT which lasted several weeks? the reason I ask is simple. I saw Ready Player One at the Village East which was showing it in 70MM in the main auditorium and they charged $20 with no discounts for seniors or children. that $20 was the highest price I have paid for a film that wasn’t 3-D, IMAX or IMAX 3-D.

the odd part is I saw both Wonder Woman and Murder on the Orient Express in 70MM last year at the Cinema 1 also a City Cinemas theater and they didn’t charge extra or not have the senior or children’s discount.

@leowtyx, it really seems to come down to the movie. But at least what AMC/IMAX seemed to do with Thor, Star Wars, Pacific Rim, and now Infinity War is all 3D showings at Lincoln Square, all 2D at Penn Station, and mix in 2D and 3D showings at Empire 25 and Kips Bay.

leowtyx on March 28, 2018 at 5:46 pm

Does this theater show IMAX Laser in 2D concurrently with 3D when there’s a 3D blockbuster movie?

alpinedownhiller on March 22, 2018 at 2:58 pm

that happens when there is really bad weather and the main center is shut down, all the ticket sites claim they don’t sell AMC tickets

it happened during the last noreaster when tons lost power out in NJ, that time NYC had tickets, but northern NJ did not
