Saturday afternoon went to see ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ on the IMAX screen. It was a wonderful experience. Loved the reserved seats. I purchased my tickets a few days in advance and was able to get my favorite seats in the theater. I prefer sitting in row M which is the back row where my line of site is about half way up the screen. I have to say 70mmIMAX is way ahead of the current D-IMAX. I am glad that AMC seems to be keeping this a 70mm film theater. I did notice that AMC is selling all the tickets for a 3D presentation where Loews used to hold back the 4 seats on the left and right sides of the theater. If you notice those seats are a different color.
Regal is opening a new 12 screen theater down the road at the Nanuet Mall. It would make sense for Regal to take over this theater and decrease the number of screens.
They certainly were not showing it at the 2:45 show on 12/31/2012.
Organizers of the Maine International Film Festival plan to buy Railroad Square Cinema to help guarantee the cinema’s long-term
Digital projection to be installed in January.
Theaters seat: 1 – 150, 2 – 90, 3 – 48.
Saw ‘Life of Pi’ at the 12:30 PM show at the Ziegfeld on Friday. Less than 100 people were there. The presentation was excellent as I always have experienced there.
If the sound of the trailer for ‘Les Miserables’ is any indication how the film will sound at the Ziegfeld it will be very impressive. Great bass that you could almost feel, especially the sound of the waves.
It is too bad the owners could not make a go of this theater and now it will no longer be a theater. That area of Orange County NY is severely under seated.
There were no showings of ‘The Master’ this past Sunday at the Ziegfeld.
Saw ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ on the “Dreamland” screen. This is the original front of the house theater. This theater also has a balcony. DLP conversion was completed for the opening of ‘Brave’. All 3 screen are now digital but no 3D.
Closed to the public but not dark. They have been hosting premiers this week including ‘The Amazing Spiderman’ last night.
“Dark Knight Rises” tickets at the Ziegfeld are now on sale.
Snow White and the Huntsman is the next film booked for June 1st.
The Chelsea 9 would be perfect for Sundance to take over.
The theater actually closed early last summer.
It would be nice to see Disney take over operation. That is the only way that the Ziegfeld would be able to obtain exclusive Manhattan engagements of films like the El Capitan does.
Because the Lincoln Square Imax is the real deal and is using 70mm film.
I certainly hope the Chelsea is with us for a while. This is my theater of choice being that it is my “neighborhood” theater. I avoid the theaters on 42nd Street and the 34 St AMC. They attract the bridge and tunnel crowd. The Lincoln Square and the Union Square theaters are always way too crowded. The Chelsea is a comfortable place to see a film and the cliental tend to treat attending a movie here seriously. No talking, no use of cell phones.
The theater is not totally dark for the next couple of weeks. There are the MET operas and Memphis for 4 showings as well as a couple of premiers.
Booked into the Ziegfeld:
5/6 – Thor
5/20 – Pirates of the Caribbean 4
6/10 – Super 8
7/1 – The Transformers 3
7/15 – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2
This is per an ad in the Time Out magazine.
You are on the wrong theater. This is the Flagship Cinema in Watervive. Flagship Cinemas is a chain with about a dozen theaters.
It is in the Shaw’s Plaza
Theater was built by General Cinemas.
It was an SBC theater as early as mid 70’s. I am not sure but was a Lockwood & Gordon theater when built. They aslo owned the State theater in Waterville as well as the Haines Theater.
Wrong link for Poughkeepsie New Your. It was the Dutchess Cinema not the Dutchess Theater.
This theater will be all digital projection by this Friday 4/30. The conversion is goig on this week.
Mike the Westbrook Cinema I & II were not part of the GCC chain. They opened in early 1964. They might have been part of the Esquire Chain in Boston. One of the first attractions was My Fair Lady in Cinema I. Most of the roadshow engagements in Maine were at these theaters. In 1967 they added Cinema III whisch opened with the roadshow of Throughly Morden Millie. Not sure if they were equipped with 70mm. They also had what was called “shadow box screens” and no curtains.
07.21.1965 … South Portland, ME — Maine Mall Cinema I & II (68 weeks)
A correction on the engagement. The Sound of Music played at the CINEMA I & II in Westbrook for it reserved seat engagement. This was the theater that showed most of the exclusive reserved seat engagements in Maine. The Maine Mall Cinemas didn’t open until 1974. I don’t even think the Maine Mall was open then.
