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.
Thank you for sharing your views.
You neglected to mention what you’d prefer to have as ticket stock.
a tour of the iconic Palace theatre is featured on Playbill.com.
so much history
Thank you so very much for your continuing contributions to the board.
you’re of course going to go through-out the remaining 2,951 screens that Carmike formerly owned and bring along your same indepth thought out analysis of how a business should operate, right?
Yup, might as keep that main photo image right there. As part of the Carmike merger, this is scheduled to become AMC property again, giving the chain an even further strangle hold on San Francisco movie-goers with now a total of 38 “screens” under AMC control.
the closest to what exactly? maybe to you- as usual, we fail to see the point of your Facebook-esque post.
I could have done the same for the Metreon 2 years ago when it got Laser IMAX – but didn’t, because people who can look at AMC or Fandango’s web or mobile offerings know that when they book a ticket.
