The Fourth Kind is currently playing at the Chinese (instead of 2012). Meanwhile, Astro Boy is playing in D-Box at the Chinese 6.

KingBiscuits commented about Encore showings of "The Wizard of Oz" on Nov. 17, but has it peaked in terms of its appeal? on Nov 11, 2009 at 2:42 am

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:

Wall Street
The Unbearable Lightness Of Being
Colors
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.

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.

KingBiscuits commented about Angelika Film Center on Oct 9, 2009 at 8:53 am

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 Chinese recently made a cameo in Zombieland with the film 2012 referenced. Zombieland can also be seen at the Chinese right now.

KingBiscuits commented about Branson Meadows Cinema closes on Oct 2, 2009 at 8:35 pm

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.

KingBiscuits commented about Krave Massive on Oct 1, 2009 at 1:34 am

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).

KingBiscuits commented about Empire Cinemas Columbia Park 12 on Sep 29, 2009 at 8:23 pm

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.

KingBiscuits commented about TCL Chinese Theatre on Sep 29, 2009 at 7:01 pm

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).

KingBiscuits commented about Beekman Theatre on Sep 28, 2009 at 7:02 am

Why do I get the idea that this theatre is a glorified second run house?

KingBiscuits commented about TCL Chinese Theatre on Sep 27, 2009 at 9:37 pm

Another weekend, another flop for the Chinese with Pandorum. The Chinese 6 also played it in the D-Box format but I don’t that it would have the film any better (the film was a huge disappointment in my opinion).

Recently, Pandorum tried to be this decade’s Alien but it came off as Resident Evil 4. Very disappointed.

KingBiscuits commented about Visual Arts Theatre on Sep 26, 2009 at 11:57 pm

If you are still wondering Bob T., that movie you described was called Ronja: The Robber’s Daughter. It played for a week or two in May 1986.

You’re right. All those movies did in fact suck.
