I was told a couple of weeks ago when I asked that the upgrade was not going to happen until August or September.

Bedford Playhouse meets $2.5M goal to reopen cinema In just five months, the Friends of Bedford Playhouse raised the $2.5 million they sought to turn the shuttered two-screen movie house into an art-house cinema. The vision for Bedford Playhouse is as ambitious as its fund-raising goal: Bring back one large screen, what they hope will be Westchester’s largest, to a restored main theater; add a second, more intimate theater; present classics, documentaries, independents and family fare; teach film appreciation to local schoolkids; sponsor a speaker and reading series and host special events featuring local movie insiders.

Seems that Maine Coast Mall Cinemas 2 closed on January 19, 2015. I was under the impression that they never converted to Digital and were having problems booking films. Last films were,The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.

Since 2013, the Ziegfeld has been managed by Bow Tie Cinemas, on behalf of Cablevision, which owns the theater (the theater was previously part of the Clearview Cinemas theater chain prior to the chain’s sale to Bow Tie; the actual ownership of the Ziegfield building was excluded from the sale).

It would then be Cablevision’s decision to update the seats,

Has anyone been to the Chelsea since the remodel. Still only 6 screens open. They must be working on the Screens 1 – 3 now. Reserved seating takes effect today. Hope to check it out soon. It was the theater I went to most when I was living a few blocks away.

It seems amusing the OdeonNotFanatical is only on here to voice disparaging on the Empire conversion. 18 for 18 so far.

We were told on Saturday that the laser projectors will be installed next summer and the Lincoln Square IMAX will be one of the first to have an install. No IMAX print of the upcoming ‘Hunger Games’ film. No 15/70 mm prints of the upcoming “The Hobbit' film. No IMAX footage was shot.

I would check with the theater that there hasn’t been a mistake with their website.

Looks like 35mm prints at the Chelsea and Union Square. I am surprised either one still had 35mm equipment.

Tickets are on sale for the 70mm presentation of ‘Interstellar’. The print version of the film is getting a 2 day jump on the Digital release. Hopefully this will give the old girl a bump. The only other 70mm print will be at the Cinema 1. With the 15/70mm print at the Lincoln Square IMAX. Any 35mm prints in NYC? I didn’t see any listed. https://interstellar.withgoogle.com/ways-to-see

It is just short of a 3 hour film and I wold think they are trying to get 2 shows at night in. Shows are at 10AM, 2PM, 6PM, 10PM & 2AM. I wonder what kind of crowds they get for a 2 AM showing? I am seeing it Saturday at 2PM. Having to come in from outside the city. I see the Tuesday night 8 PM show is close to selling out already.

Tickets are on sale for Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ playing at the IMAX in 15/70mm and 4K on the Loews Screen.

15/70mm from what I have read. Curious if they are striking a special print for them seeing that the screen was designed for IMAX digital not 15/70mm.

So the news on the interweb is that the Chinese is getting 70mm projection installed for the engagement of “interstellar”.

Under performing to it’s potential. Have you seen how pathetic their IMAX presentation is since they switched from 15/70mm.

So AMC is going to screw up the Lincoln Square more than they have already.

The only bargain priced tickets on 42nd and Manhattan theaters are shows before 12 noon. Bowtie offers these prices at the Chelsea. I can’t remember the last time there was a morning show at the Ziegfeld. “Guardians of the Galaxy” is back at the Ziegfeld in 2D. Definitely worth checking out again.

Resident’s of Manhattan do not seem to go to matinee’s. I usually go Saturday or Sunday afternoon for that reason. Don’t Have to put up with crowds.Try an evening show. The place is packed. The same with the Regal across the street. Afternoons are a ghost town.

The last time I was at the Lincoln Square to see ‘Lucy" i inquired about 15/70mm at the IMAX screen. I was told that “Interstellar” and “The Hobbit:The Battle of the Five Armies” will show actual prints.

Attended the 1:00 PM show of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ on Saturday. The picture and sound were impeccable. It as great seeing a film with out presentation issues that I have experienced at the Lincoln Square lately. It was a shame seeing that there was only about 100 patrons at the showing. The comments about being off the beaten path seems strange with the theater only a block from the subway and bus stops and on the cusp of the Broadway theater district. Curious if Dolby ATMOS will be installed especially where the theater is used for most of the premiers held in NYC now. The premiere of the new Helen Mirren film is being held on Monday. The trailers for ‘Interstellar’ and ‘Into the Woods’ looked spectacular on the Ziegfeld screen. The only item missing was use of the curtains.
