While the Chinese plays the regular version.

It looks like From Paris With Love will be the next engagement. The Chinese 6 will probably get the D-Box version.

The date looks like January 2006.

KingBiscuits commented about A Guide to seeing "Avatar" in several formats on Jan 4, 2010 at 6:08 pm

Note on the 3-D versions:

-REAL-D/Dolby Digital 3-D versions are in a 2.40:1 aspect ratio
-IMAX version is in a 1.78:1 open matte aspect ratio that closer to Cameron’s intended ratio

I saw it in the matted 2.40:1 format and it looked great, despite some matting reducing the 3-D effects.

No Tree of Life?

KingBiscuits commented about Best movie of the decade? on Dec 30, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Wall-E was my favorite of the decade.

KingBiscuits commented about Harris Theatre on Dec 28, 2009 at 5:25 pm

Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie and The Nude Bomb looked to be the double bill playing at the time.

White Castle sliders? Sounds like the place to watch Harold and Kumar!

Wow, how did Francois Ozon’s new film get dumped into a 60 seat auditorium on opening weekend?

KingBiscuits commented about Regal Northstar Stadium 14 on Dec 21, 2009 at 12:21 am

I saw one movie here: Doogal (the American version of The Magic Roundabout) back in 2006. The auditorium and screen was big and the picture was good if a little blurry but a good experience overall. Also, they had a good game room on a separate floor with several games (I played the 1991 Simpsons arcade game there).

KingBiscuits commented about Ebert's take on Avatar on Dec 18, 2009 at 9:14 pm

I saw it tonight and the crowd was comparable to Watchmen back in March. Though I expect better numbers than Watchmen, the appeal isn’t as universal as Titanic. It will probably finish with $230 million with most of the gross made in the first two weeks.

KingBiscuits commented about Next Twilight movie to be IMAXed for next summer on Dec 18, 2009 at 12:57 pm

I can’t believe anyone gives a damn about Twilight here. An IMAX-ified Twilight movie will simply expose how bad the technicals are (because Summit won’t spend any money to improve the franchise’s shortfalls).

November 6th, to be exact.

KingBiscuits commented about The past decade was SUPER, SUPER, SUPER (but not all of it was good!). on Dec 10, 2009 at 4:50 pm

On the belief that comic book movies are too dark: rent the Hellboy movies. Despite the concept (the son of Satan becoming good and fighting the forces of evil), it has a lot of humor to balance out the fantasy and action elements. Also, Hellboy is one of the most likeable superheroes in a movie.

Also, Kick-Ass (based on a comic book by Mark Millar) opens in April and is a satire of superheroes and comic books.

Ninja Assassin is currently playing in the Chinese with Armored, Planet 51, Bad Lieutenant and Transylmania (which opened with only $250 per theatre on opening weekend) playing first-run at the Chinese 6.

KingBiscuits commented about El Capitan Theatre on Dec 6, 2009 at 9:52 pm

Well, it is playing at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank so I guess that counts a little.

Even more surprising was that Old Dogs was not played at the El Captian (being that it was Disney’s big Thanksgiving movie). But also I was surprised that Ponyo didn’t run either (due to a long run of G-Force).

I imagine that Sherlock Holmes will be booked into both the Chinese and Chinese 6 (due to it being in D-Box).

KingBiscuits commented about Cinemark Valley Fair 9 on Nov 29, 2009 at 1:26 am

The theatre opened on August 14th, 1970 as a four-screen theatre with They Call Me Mister Tibbs (on two screens), Sleeping Beauty and Two Mules For Sister Sara.

The expansion opening occured around Summer 1987, either in July or August.

Excited, yes. But only with movies that actually look good.

The Princess and The Frog is opening at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. I believe the El Capitan will be running Old Dogs instead.

The Tower in Springfield, Missouri never had 70mm equipment. It was always 35mm.

Don’t you hate it when movie theatres guarantee that all of the movies showing will be great?

KingBiscuits commented about Encore showings of "The Wizard of Oz" on Nov. 17, but has it peaked in terms of its appeal? on Nov 15, 2009 at 6:26 pm

I’ve been reading that you can get them for $99 now. When Black Friday hits, expect even cheaper Blu-Ray players for those few hours.

From the looks of the website’s showtimes, the theatres looks like it is a four-screen theatre now.
