I didn’t notice any line on the screen from Row M Center on Saturday. What I did notice was some blurring in some of the tracking shots in the film. My biggest complaint was they didn’t dim the lights during the previews and brought them up at the beginning of the end credits. I would think the 2 lighted IMAX signs on the side walls of the theater would have provided enough light for people coming in and leaving.

Last row was M. Row M center was where II always sat. It was the perfect viewing point IMHO.

A theater can not install recliners and keep the prices the same. It cuts the seating by at least 50% or more and to keep the profits up the ticket prices have to be increased. I for one hope the recliner is a passing phase in movie theaters.

The installation of recliners is posted on the Regal wed site. I posted this the other day but it seems to have disappeared. But we still have postings from hdtv267.

There is an 8 screen iPic under construction in Rivertown Development in Dobbs Ferry off the Saw Mill Parkway in Westchester County.

The Paris is still showing “Love and Friendship” which has been showing all summer. The next movie will be 25th Anniversary of Merchant & Ivory’s “Howard’s End” the end of August. This film played here on it’s original release March of 92. “Cafe Society” is playing at the Cinema 1.

Not likely to happen at the Chelsea. NYC is an extremely difficult city to get a liquor licence unless they can buy an existing permit.

Big surprise. Bowtie did a great job with the remodel and I would assume it is a profitable location. When I lived in NYC it was always my choice of theaters over the AMC and Regal locations.

mhvbear commented about City Cinemas Cinema 1, 2, and 3 on Jun 21, 2016 at 7:13 am

It is a shame this theater was butchering in the first place when the 3rd screen was added. It is a shame that the Upper East Side was the hot spot for films in the 60’s & 70’s and almost all the theaters in that area are gone. It seems now that NYC must be one of the most under screened areas in the US based on population. The majority of the theaters seem to be in the 34th Street and 42nd street areas that mostly serve the bridge and tunnel crowd.

Paramus has Blue Laws so stores are closed on Sundays except grocery stores. The theaters are the only thing open at the mall on a Subday. Makes parking easy.

No stadium in the orchestra seating of the Loews. Probably stadium seating in the balcony section. But never sat up there.

There are no plans for installation of recliners in the IMAX. New seating is planned on being installed but they are not going to want to decrease the capacity by 50%. Then tickets would have to be $42 to make the nut,

Maybe because it is booked into the Regal E-Walk 13 across the street.

Major completion coming their way. Construction has started on the iPic Complex being built off the Saw Mill Parkway just north of Yonkers.

Saw ‘Batman v Superman’ on on Sunday morning at the 9:00 AM show. The last time I went to the IMAX was to see ‘Interstellar’ had stopped attending because I was disappointed in the Digital presentation on that screen. The 15/70mm presentation on Sunday was impeccable. It was nice see the the full screen used again. The sound mix was excellent. It would be nice to see more IMAX prints struck until the laser projection becomes more wide spread. The start of the film was 15 minutes after the scheduled start which they announced a few times. The delay was because there was no preview bundle with the print of the film. And people assume there is going to be a slew of previews and arrive late. The next 15/70mm presentation will be starting April 29th for ‘The Beautiful Earth’ documentary.

mhvbear commented about Regal Cinemas Galleria Mall 16 on Mar 19, 2016 at 3:20 pm

The four screen added in 1995 were added on the second level of the mall near the food court. These screens were fairly small.
In 2006/2007 there was a substantial construction and remodel. The four screen addition was closed and a new wing was constructed that would house nine screen. the original 8 screens were decreased to seven screen and remodeled with stadium seating. The new nine screens were constructed with stadium seating. The original construction is now screens 1 – 7 and the new addition is screens 8 – 16. All theaters are now digital.

The Dutchess Cinema was located in Poughkeepsie, The Movie 4 was in the Dutchess Mall in Fishkill. The Movies 4 was carved out of retail space in the mall and was never a single screen.

Not recliners but they are getting new seating. Probably similar to the Chelsea.

I don’t see AMC installing recliners at the Lincoln Square. With the business this theater does, the last thing they would want to do is decrease the seating capacity. The reason the AMC installed recliners in the 84th Street and Village 7 is that these theaters were not high performing.

Was the 15/70 mm projector ever removed? I don’t remember ever seeing confirmation of this and it would be a big project to re-install.

I am not at all surprised the ‘Deadpool’ is being kept on the IMAX screen. It made 55 million this past weekend and will probably be held at least another 2 or 3 weeks. ‘Gods of Egypt’ hasn’t even been reviewed yet. Not a good sign.
