Looking at 3D screenings, there’s a set that looks like it will be in the large Loews auditorium for The Last Jedi.

Murder on the Orient Express is in 70mm in aud 2? Justice League is in 70mm in Loews aud? I don’t see that at AMC website or elsewhere.

I visited this theater for the 1st time on Saturday. In the historic auditorium (# 1) I saw “Murder on the Orient Express” shown in 70mm. It is only being shown in 70mm in LA & NYC (including in NY at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square but when I clicked online, not in the large Loews auditorium there). The ticket lobby ceiling is gloriously ornate. The main lobby or foyer as described in the Intro (I helped with the text) & the historic auditorium is, as Ross indicated in the Intro, like a Golden Age Hollywood movie palace! The stadium seated auditorium provided for great sightlines. Surround sound was very good. There are also some classics shown on some Wed evenings, sometime in 35mm. This 2017 article has great photos https://www.6sqft.com/the-urban-lens-inside-the-village-east-cinema-one-of-nys-last-surviving-yiddish-rialto-theaters/

I’ve added now to the photo gallery here my own photo of the concession foyer. It looks much better now especially without the terrible metal trough thing that ran along the ceiling.

You might try harder to spell. “Rows” not rolls. Haas not Hass.

Norton is saying that most of the seats at the Citywalk auditorium with 70mm have poor sightlines. Not a matter to be solved with seat reservations.

Scott, what do you mean by the “Mozart”? I can’t find that as a historic theater, by googling. Please provide a link or better, a link to this website’s page.

At Facebook, Vintage Philadelphia, Don Mason posted this- The Aldine Theater became Cinema 19. When the Woodstock film opened in 1970, I recall standing in the long line to see the film. A great cinematic experience back then. Groundbreaking use of the split screen. It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary

I had recently seen those renderings online. Inside, nothing appears in those renderings from the movie theater.

JodarMovieFan, what does VFX mean? Close Encounters original release was 35mm blown up to 70mm, not filmed in 65mm.

I hope that a curtain (tab) will still be used with movie presentations in the main auditorium.

“Close Encounters of the Third Kind 40th Anniversary” (the new 4k restoration only in theaters for one week) is being shown now here. So far as I recall, the 1st classic in many years!

Mike, you are referring to a theater in your home state rather than K of P?

HowardBHaas commented about Seattle Cinerama on Aug 7, 2017 at 11:50 am

One of the highlights of this year’s 70mm festival will be what seems to be the only surviving 70mm print of “Sleeping Beauty” Classic movies filmed in 65mm shown in what will likely be great prints will include 2001, Lawrence of Arabia, Khartoum, It’s a Mad (etc) World, Spartacus, West Side Story, Patton, Tron, and Baraka. Vertigo wasn’t exactly 65mm but is another classic filmed especially well, with a great print. More recent films entirely or partly filmed in 65mm include The Hateful Eight and Interstellar. 35mm blowups to 70mm (often including more surround sound than regular 35mm) include Top Gun, The Dark Crystal, The Thing, Aliens, Star Trek VI, Ghostbusters, Wonder Woman, Inherent Vice, and The Untouchables. If I have anything inaccurate, feel free to say so.

Masking aka matting screens is no longer being done this year, having sometimes not been done last year. Auditoriums 1 thru 5 are set to “flat” which means “scope” screens are letterboxed horizontally. Auditorium 6 is set for “scope”
