Tomorrow is the swan song for this theater.
Nor you can pause it, Flix70.
None of these three single screen theaters will show big budget blockbusters when the Ziegfeld closes on Friday.
not sure. With the closing of the Ziegfeld, the only way to see classic movies around manhattan in true HD will be this one, as well as Symphony Space, Walter Reade, and others.
The laser imax at LS13 will be to the big apple what Mann’s Chinese IMAX will be to the city of Angels. I hope they don’t raise prices anytime soon.
in my entire life i haven’t been to this theater but my dad has went there when no other theater showed it in his area. It was great for exclusive engagements. How fitting that they showed a movie about marooned astronauts as their first movie months after man landed on the moon and before the Apollo 13 disaster, which this theater showed, and its last movie is about sci-fi too with Star Wars The Force Awakens. The next star wars movie will probably play at Chelsea, which has profited more than the Z due to its reserved seating and plush seats, something that the Ziegfield lacks. I hope that whoever takes over that building keeps the heritage of the name in the new building. And there will be only two single screen theaters left, the Paris, and the LeFrak IMAX.
About time that Lincoln Square got recliners and reserved seating in all screens other than the IMAX like its older brother the 84th street.
the closing of the ziegfeld in a few weeks will make this the only single screen non-IMAX venue left in Manhattan.
Which screens have 7.1 and which ones have 5.1?
i first heard it on facebook, hdtv267. Long live the Ziegfeld.
Which screen has the most seats? I think the IMAX is, followed by the AMC Prime auditorium.
Hidden cameras are great because they prevent movie goers from sneaking into another auditorium. The hidden cameras probably scan a code on the ticket.
have you seen it on HBO lately? They cropped it from the scope ratio and the audio is much lower than the Blu-Ray. Thank god I rented it on disc from Netflix and enjoyed the action. I think the Revanant will be more oscar worthy than Mad Max as history suggests with the exception of Titanic and LOTR: ROTK.
I hope they retrofit the Loews into an AMC Prime theater.
pretty soon they will renovate this theater with new seats as AMC is doing to mostly the Loews locations first and then the other AMC theaters by 2019.
And some of them are shot in IMAX, like Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Intersteller, and his upcoming movie Dunkirk. He is a huge fan of filming stuff in that format. Quentin Tarantino also shoots stuff in 2d too and prefers film to digital. Hence that his latest work was shot in 65mm for 70mm release before a nationwide rollout in a shorter digital version.
The AMC Rockaway digital imax is a decent imax.
This theater was ahead of its time when it opened in 98 and had some competition. Now it has a new one in the name of Regal.
Has anyone seen The Hateful Eight in 70mm in the loews auditorium?
Meadow six opened in June 1982. The Plaza 8 opened in 1987 according to New York Magazine. https://books.google.com/books?id=IeUCAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA66&dq=loews+plaza+8&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAtbTi54HKAhULmx4KHZ4gAQs4MhDoAQgkMAA
On a lighter note, how is Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime? Star Wars is playing there.
just in time for star wars
I agree with your comment, alpinedownhiller. I’ve seen trailers for movies not coming out in imax shot in flat being shown windowboxed as related to a comment describing the issue while scope trailers span the entire middle of the screen. No masking in the imax screen which is great. Non imax trailers usually get the amc logo and release date along with film logo and rating at the end of each trailer. IMAX trailers usually show the green or red band before the trailer after the crosscheck.
Both are equal, waterguy56.
last night star wars held its world premiere that was live streamed by verizon on its website and on fios tv. tightened security as well as lots of fans, stars, and artists. Everyone seems to like it so far.
