LOL @ Joe. Having attended both of those D/I’s regularly, you’re prone to see more SUV’s, Flat bed trucks and minivans with kiddos running around them than any Passion Pit behavior!
Yep. Whole thing’s been torn down with no remains for about 20 years now.
This is a picture of the adjoining mall, not the actual movie theatre
Skin & Skin on 1 & 2, Eastwood & Eastwood on 3 & 4!
So the Wehrenberg name is officially off the theatre? Wow.
Went here for the first time on 1/5/19 and saw a film in the Dolby Cinema room. The screen is one of the largest for a Dolby out of all the AMC DFW locations. Sound and picture are great but the bass transponders built into the seats didn’t function with the same impact as other Dolby auditoriums. IMAX room looked decent for a LieMax. All in all, a pretty decent theatre.
Went here for the first time today. 90’s era relic that could use a 21st century lobby refresh. But the screens were big – although that 80 foot designation is a bit too much – and the sound system was really nice.
Not a fan of this location. Decor is nice like most SMG’s but the sound is TERRIBLE! Your living room soundbar or home theatre will pump more wattage than this theatre does!
This might be the single best sounding theatre in ALL of North Dallas. High quality with thundering bass in even the smallest of their auditoriums.
As of 9/27/2018, the drive in is now closed until further notice.
Why go to a fake drive-in when there’s one off the 105 & Paramount Blvd. and another off the 605 & Valley Blvd?
3 screens for this mess? REALLY???
This is a totally MEH AMC location that got a Dolby Cinema auditorium in early summer 2018. Theatre is lifeless and void of personality.
Yeah, the description needs a bit more cleanup.
Opened showing mainstream
Switched to porn and the trouble with the city occurred
Wehrenberg took over in 1977 and it stopped showing porn
Closed in 1980 and now a junkyard
Facts on this drive-in need to be corrected. It opened as Olympic. Name changed to Rock Road when Wehrenberg took over in 1977 and it closed in 1980.
Saw a 70MM print of “Ready Player One” here in April 2018. Great experience!
You can see the wrecked and tattered remains of Valley View with the AMC portion of the complex still standing as you travel the 635 freeway. Frankly, they really should put the theatre out of its misery.
Answering an earlier question about why El Cap doesn’t show movies in 3D: It’s technically a Dolby Cinema house. Doesn’t use the Dolby Cinema name but it’s the same technical framework: Dolby Vision HDR projection plus Dolby Atmos audio. I have yet to see a Dolby Vision/Cinema house equipped for 3D. Frankly, it doesn’t need it! It’s presentation is already the best in the business…topped only by full screen 70MM IMAX.
Justice League was shot in 1.85:1. Zack Snyder intentionally shot it that way because 1.85:1 will fill 85% of a TrueIMAX screen as opposed to 2:35 sitting smack dab in the center of the screen. Never saw the IMAX version so can’t confirm if any scenes were shot with IMAX cameras.
Overrated movie theatre in an overcrowded mall with bad bad parking!
Went here in early August 2017. Lots of personality for an AMC. The Prime auditorium is now a Dolby Cinema auditorium – and the BEST ONE I’ve been to!
The zoning war between this place and LOOK is over. They’re both showing the same titles day and date.
Went here in early August 2017. Lobby looked nice but the auditoriums could use a lil TLC
Again, it’s the same tech used for the 2016 Jungle Book remake
Substitute the phrase “Live Action” with Photorealistic. “Live Action” is a distinction between hand drawn animated cartoons vs Photorealistic movement, backgrounds and activity. But it’s still all animated. Disney with all their power isn’t gonna make a herd of lions and hyenas speak.
Big Joe: They’re using the same technique as the highly successful Jungle Book remake where the animals were 100% photorealistic CGI and there was only 1 human character in the film. The film was shot on soundstages where the jungle environment was digitally recreated as well.
