Thankfully there’s a city with a real laser IMAX experience that will screen this properly
the screens are boarded up?
Monday February 20th, the Castro is hosting a showing of the ABC mini-series “ When We Rise” , the first part of this will be airing on the ABC station in your region on Feb 27, 2017.
Once again the Castro hosting a major event given to the history of that particular area and some of what’s occured on Castro Street. Given the current political climate, it is sure to be an emotional night.
showing it? the movie based on the Stephen King book is being shown in 3d at a theatre in Clifton Commons?
I’m confused- what does that have to do with an AMC theatre on the Upper West Side of New York City.
Still waiting on confirmation to the “news” of Jan 20th. Considering that someone at AMC could neither confirm or deny exactly what was going on- just that changes are “afoot” – it would be nice to get some confirmation on the changes and source from the poster.
perhaps- maybe that Xander Cage was such a bomb they didn’t decide what to put in there yet. I know some regions showed an IMAX version of “LaLa Land”.
since these posts will be on here for many years, soon the term “new” will not be applicable.
The commercial being referred to is here
well then build one for him. If you need to — go ask Kitty and Marshall Dillon for help.
The church who took over the space went bankrupt. It’s been foreclosed on, but next week, the San Francisco Historic Preservation Commision is going to meet to give to determine if the El Rey ( still part of the building) can be given landmark status..
Here’s the article w/ some photos of the interior..
How so? Why is that the case?
How long was it a UA, how long Clearview- when was the 70mm installed?
it’s been 10 years since it closed….
Did you see them there? How was the presentation?
what about the central auditorium, especially since that had the organ.
When did you attend ? what movies did you see?
you said in 2015 you wouldn’t think it would survive, here we are and it’s still open.
For such a “moviebuff” one might think you’d root for as many theatres to remain open, recliners or not.
Just wondering, do you actually go to these places?
what are you basing that 2nd part of your “reply” on? Do you have access to AMC’s financial statements? Please show your work.
All of the bars at the Alamo Drafthouse have a specific theme. It’s a shame you dislike it, but your choice of calling it hideous is a bit much.
The building that the Drafthouse is located in is currently under construction . There’s signs on each level of elevator and escalator and it’s quite easy to get to. Just requires using your head a bit.
if they renovate the screen with recliners, won’t it be tough to see the movie?
Now, renovating the theatre itself with recliners, sure. But this is a point made ad nauseum by yourself and others. We get it. Please move along.
if you took the time to read the history of the Roxie that Stevenj so kindly posted and linked, there’s a note there that yes, the Roxie ran porn from 1968-1975.
I fail to see how that de-legitimizes the fact of it being one of the longest continuously operating theatres in the United States. In that time frame, adult films were just that film. So techinically those are movies, regardless of one’s puritanical views on adult entertainment, especially in a city like San Francisco.
alot of people were….
spamming the board again, eh Moviebuff. You’re duplicating a three year old post.
Please remove the older one.
Sorry it’s been so bad. Complaining to theatre management is one thing- but have to spoken out to corporate?
I’ve had many issues, contacted @AMCHelps on twitter and they’ve responded and things get taken care of . Since this “Dine-In” experience is their ‘bread & butter’ (no pun intended) they’d like to be aware.
Good luck in getting things resolved.
what bad experiences have you had there? Were they reported to management or AMC corporate? I hope Poland did and got some sort of compensation for his issues. Through the Fandango app it will tell you what theatre you are in before purchasing tickets.
I highly doubt them advertising in the Chronicle.
