hdtv267 commented about AMC Loews Freehold Metroplex 14 on Jun 23, 2015 at 1:28 pm

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.

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.

Actually, no, if you paid close attention to the story and the quotes, it was because it is a terrible movie.

If this is keeping you up nights, why not contact each of the venues and ask them ? Why not take this “discussion” to each theatre’s facebook page where it belongs.

Maybe it won’t. If you’re so concerned about this movie, at least show the same respect you’re showing for the theatre name and capitalize both things.

I concur with bigjoe. I fail to see the Chinese ever being a “neighborhood house”, If you have some evidence to the contrary, please do present it. I’m sure a lot of those who keep populating the comments on this particular venue would love to read those.

yes I did read that and thank you very much for providing some helpful information to this board, but knowing the San Francisco real estate market, let’s hope that remains on track. I do look forward to a visit when I get back to SF

hdtv267 commented about AMC Rockaway 16 on May 29, 2015 at 4:44 am

yes, that is so important since this is the only complex it is occurring at and certainly worthy of a post to this once great board.

The ‘splitting of showings’ is happening through the IMAX universe.

I again wonder if these sorts of inquiries wouldn’t be better relegated to this theatre’s Facebook?

Thanks for posting that Mike. There’s a big sign out front over the marquee saying “opening 2015”, is that still realistic?

Well you’d also see the ads in other papers and online as well. I’m not quite sure what that last line means in your post. But then it makes as much sense as the other things you care to pollute this once great board with.

it also is mentioned in the schedule of the movies that play there, this fine fine theatre was one of the early adopters to 4K.

hdtv267 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on May 27, 2015 at 4:07 am

The majority?

Was there any indication that any of this was filmed in 70mm IMAX ? Unless I missed the memo the final 70mm IMAX was “Interstellar” The new “Star Wars” and “Batman vs Superman” MIGHT have some 70mm IMAX prints struck.

Where did you even get any idea that “Tomorrowland” was even filmed in 70mm. Please, show your work on this links and your rationale for even thinking this. OK?
