Thanks for the info Rob.
I took a look at the Fandango page for this theatre and most of what the original poster is “complaining” about is factually incorrect.
Inside Out isn’t playing here at all.
Nothing is playing on 2 screens
The other movies are still relatively recent releases.
PrimeTime 3D pricing is $14.29
PrimeTime regular pricing is $ 10.79
The 3D price increase is $3.50
There’s only 2 movies with a 3D screening.
Two of the 5 showings are in 3D, the majority are available in a non-3D format.
this venue now has reclining seats, must have done an upgrade to keep up with the Alamo Drafthouse!
I’m not familiar with this region, is it an area habited by Koreans. If so, are they not entitled to enjoy movies?
If things are that bad, make your displeasure known with your wallet and just not go there and “complain” to AMC.
Not sure why you insist on doing it here, where realistically how much good is it doing other than taking up space here. Maybe Facebook where there are more people in your region?
This complex is featured quite prominently in the movie “TrainWreck”– the marquee of course. Scenes with Amy Schumer and John Cena were filmed inside one of the theaters.
That’s a great photo, Thanks for taking the time to post it up and of course Life mag for making available!!
I thought it was all of the 33 locations that Starplex had that were purchased. Is this the only one? There’s certainly other New Jersey locations and other locations through out the country, why would this one be singled out?
If it’s every location, why post the news to just this one ?. This is a story more left to the main page only and not get lost on one complex only.
When the renovations and signage are changed, then taking photos and posting them would be more effective if you were looking to single out something.
The reason that seating has been reduced, these new seats he alluded to are in fact recliners.
They recently added an IMAX screen to this venue. Not sure which number screen it is and how seating configurations changed. I learned of it from a billboard while going across the Ben Franklin Bridge
The Strand has re-opened. It is now a live event venue, focusing mainly on theatrical productions.
According to the ACT website, seating capacity is 283, a tiny bit below the 300 announced. There’s also something called the “Strand Cafe”
Hopefully someone in San Francisco can head by there and get some photos and file a report.
Looks like a great place to see a show!
The scaffolding is down and the marquee looks amazing. I snagged a photo from the theatre’s twitter page (@DrafthouseSF) and invite all of you wanting to follow along with the progress to do so here. That opening looks on track and quite exciting. A big highlight of my holiday visit will be attending a screening there.
I’ve always found AMC’s twitter feed to be very responsive to questions. Have you ever asked someone there on these pressing issues ?
where did you gather this piece of information? Aren’t you forgetting to share your “facts” in your excitement to be the first poster on a “story”
exactly- that’s why I’m so surprised that the interior of this magical venue hasn’t been recorded. There has to be something so spectacular to garner this much interest in comments, shame it’s not being shared
looking at the IMDB rating on that movie, you’re probably the only person to have watched that one- so thanks for pointing it out.
Renovations are well under way. Theaters 1-6 are completely shut down and inaccessible to patrons, as it’s a hard hat zone. Based upon information I received today from a staffer, 1-6 are expected to be re-opened mid August. Then from there, of course 7-10 will be next. The entire job is expected to be completed in mid October.
Kudos to AMC as a chain for updating the policy snipes. They are short and to the point now, people will hopefully pay attention.
I uploaded best I could on the construction. # putmymoneywheremymouthis
still no photos of this venue, eh- none of the existing are from one who seems to be the most interested in this particular venue.
Shame that all of these changes that are going on with this complex haven’t been documented.
How do you know that those weren’t addressed during the renovations? Also I believe the issues with the theatre in it’s past incarnation, were covered by Dave back in 2010, so I don’t think that there’s any real purpose for you to remind everyone of that, unless I missing something. I think it’s pretty insulting to those fine workers assuming that those weren’t addressed during the renovations. Why not go and investigate further, take some photos and then post about this theatre and other theaters.
yes please. I agree with bigjoe, if someone is going to come on here and make such a bold statement with such an iconic venue allegedly closing, I really wish someone would cite these “reports” instead of coming on here and polluting this once great blog with such unsubstantiated drivel.
There are some of us who would debate that the Times Square of the 70’s and 80’s was more fun.
40 years ago today (June 20, 1975) the movie “Jaws” opened at this theatre. They were lined up past the theatre , off the boardwalk and down onto Cedar Avenue. It was a summer in which the beaches weren’t all that busy.
Word today from one of the theatre employees who came in to tidy up whilst credits were running after “Inside Out”… renovations begin Monday 6/22 for the change over to the recliners. Interestingly enough the side 1-6 will be done first, while 7-10 remain open for the duration.
Then of course vice versa. The theatre now is as mentioned completely digital. Everything in the auditoriums themselves are on timers. I plan on making a few visits this summer and make notes where I can and take some photos.
Hmm photos of something involving a theater that someone posts a lot about, what a novel idea.
An interview with the man who’s father was the arranger at the Roxy theatre for it’s live acts is featured at the site below. Also see some great photos of the Roxy
Nothing like over 5 years late, but finally re-watched this episode today.
Answering Noah, even if the theatre has closed, it might not have changed at all and they might have been able to use it in the show. By then most of the episodes were filming in San Francisco.
Reports coming forward today that the Boyd will become a Target Express store….
“According to the Inquirer’s Jacob Adelman, Target spokesperson Erika Winkels has announced that a portion of the Boyd Theatre development site will include a 21,000-square foot TargetExpress store.
