Circling back to Marlon’s comment above, Philly.com reports today (3/1/14) that this venue is in fact becoming a “Fork & Screen” Venue. Re-opening is expected for the mid June of 2014
Search engines are your friend… :P
The Marina is a twin, both screens are offering digital projection.
Well the Art theaters are gone. They’re cleared out, but the marquee still stands and building for rent.
Right now, this houses a Radio Shack and Subway restaurant.
this still are basic store fronts- but maybe not for much longer due to all of the development in the MidMarket region
the “bad movie nights” are continuing on Sunday evenings here. Some are quite bad (RIPD, Cutthroat Island) they offer a salute to Mel Gibson later this year including his appearance in “Hamlet”
Great article about the “return” of the Roxy

The Four-Star is still screening titles on film. Even at a time with prints it didn’t think to be film available. They currently do not have DCP capability- just a BlueRay every now and then.
January 17, 2014 will see this complex offering Cineplex’s VIP services.
VIP Cinemas are a premium entertainment experience for adults only that offer luxurious reserved seating; food and beverage service at your seat; licenced auditoriums; a licenced lounge; an in-theatre menu of specialty appetizers and entrees; and much more.”
The ticket price, a staggering C$24.99.
looks as though this is going to meet the wrecking ball.
Plans are to raze the theater for an 8 story building including condos, 7,500 square feet of retail and 24 parking spots.
Evacuation- no direct from AMC Employees- over 4000 guests turned out to a frigid New York City night- this happened at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square.

Story in today’s Philly.com about police needing to be called to disperse a crowd of 400-500 teenagers who gathered in this complex’s lobby around 9pm on 12/16/13.
Detective Williams had this to say …
“The kids were "just milling around the lobby area, the parking lot … just basically being slightly unruly,” Williams said. The teens were not moviegoers."

Nice coverage of the rally on 12/10 by KYW Newsradio. Link here [which includes comments from our own Howard Haas]
Even though it’s really a movie theatre all that often Luis V- the former Prince Music Theatre (nee Midtown)occasionally shows movies , it is a single screen, but right now focuses on Bdway style shows and concerts.
It’s important the Boyd be saved, but also that part of Chestnut Street needs work as well.
I’m with you alps
This theater made a bit of news over the Thanksgiving weekend. It seems that due to technical difficulties, another cartoon was played. That of an adult nature. Things were shut down with in minutes. But what about the children?
Was the curtain utilized pre and post show, please Bud?
The Castro was named one of the 10 most beautiful cinemas in the world by the BBC.
Why do you need to fax them? You have a computer. Whenever I’ve not gotten credit for a movie on my Stubs account for whatever reason, I’ve taken a photo of my ticket stub and then emailed the photo and my information to the AMC Stubs website and it’s cleared up in a day or two.
The December 2013 calendar is up. Great assortment of titles, Gravity and Dial M for Murder in 3D. Noir City Xmas. The annual Christmas Eve San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus concert. Kinsey Sicks. Other cinematic standouts include Marx Brothers classics on December 30th and “Singin in the Rain” on New Years Eve
Of major note to those in San Francisco or going to be on December the 16th, a benefit concert to raise funds for the restoration of the Mighty Wurlitzer.
I made a return to the Nob Hill in November of 2013. This was on a Saturday evening for the live show with 2 stars- Kieron Ryan and JR Matthews. During their show, Kieron brought up his boyfriend from the audience to join in.
It was a fun night and interesting program to say the least. Other dancers performed before and after the headliners.
There were women in attendance as well and in the audience- Myself and other male members of the audience were uncomfortable about their being there. But legally- they can not be kept out.
Back in October a member had posted that he heard from theatre personnel that Catching Fire and Hobbit sequel were going to be presented on film. That might have changed though for a myriad of reasons.
Not that it helps folks attending here, but let me throw out that it will be showing in 70MM Imax at the Metreon in SF
Official word from the General Manager of the Loews AMC Metreon that “Hunger Games- Catching Fire” will be screened in 70MM Imax film.
