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?
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.
The Fourth Kind is currently playing at the Chinese (instead of 2012). Meanwhile, Astro Boy is playing in D-Box at the Chinese 6.
I saw this on 35mm last year. The 1998 prints are still in use by Warner Bros.
Is that “first run, big budget indie film” The Road?
When Cineplex Odeon ran it as a one-screen theatre, here were some of the theatre’s engagements:
The Unbearable Lightness Of Being
Die Hard in 70mm (the final movie played at the theatre)
This theatre’s address should be listed as Sappington, Missouri rather than St. Louis, Missouri.
Opening engagement will be Michael Jackson’s This Is It on all fourteen screens.
Gotcha. Sounds like typical UA.
Does anyone know the story about the ghost that supposedly haunted this theatre?
I’d love to see them hit Missouri.
I was here today and it is currently up and running as a live venue. The theatre is starting Mall Of The Dead on Friday and will run throughout October.
This is what I found in the New York Times. The ad apparently ran on August 18th to August 20th, 1989.
Hey, it looks like that the August 18th, 1989 “false” opening did occur. After having been delayed from July 21st (a July 28th showing of Turner and Hooch was listed but played at the Cinema 3rd Avenue instead), the theatre opened as a United Artists theatre for one weekend. The films shown were Shell Shock, Emma’s Shadow, Cheetah and Let It Ride. After that week ended, the Criterion Center got Let It Ride and I don’t know who got Cheetah in the moveover). Wired was scheduled to open on August 25th there but instead played at the 8th Street Playhouse.
The final movies at the Meadow 6:
Surrogates (closed captioned)
Kaminey (an Indian film that opened in August)
The Chinese recently made a cameo in Zombieland with the film 2012 referenced. Zombieland can also be seen at the Chinese right now.
Honestly, I am not surprised that they closed. The last several times that I had gone to the theatre, there was hardly anyone there. Also, the theatre had resorted to playing DVD’s of independent films for first run prices a number of months before.
I remember passing by this theatre back when I visited Las Vegas in May 2009 (shortly after it closed). It was an empty shell that seemed to have everything still there (there were even sun-faded standees of early 2008 releases still in the building).
This theatre has returned to playing first run, with a mix of mainstream and Indian fare.
That Frankenstein 3-D ad is from the 1983 reissue.
It’s a sign of the times when a studio opens two films on the same weekend and gives the flop to the Chinese (Overture gave Capitalism: A Love Story to the Arclight).
Why do I get the idea that this theatre is a glorified second run house?
