Why do you need to fax them? You have a computer. Whenever I’ve not gotten credit for a movie on my Stubs account for whatever reason, I’ve taken a photo of my ticket stub and then emailed the photo and my information to the AMC Stubs website and it’s cleared up in a day or two.

Again went here today with my wife to go to the 12:15 showing of “Philomena” (amazing 3 new films here this week) and that showing and the one following were cancelled for technical difficulties; saw it in Malverne instead. The screen would be supposedly ready for the more expensive after 5 pm showings. Theater had 13 busses of school kids there for “Frozen” (our taxpayer dollars at work). Was “Philomena” cancelled to accomodate these children for overcrowding of “Frozen”?The hand dryers in the bathroom also have not worked in months. Also every time one is about to cross the $100 rewards mark on the AMC Stubs card whether you are at Bay terrace or Fresh Meadows the system is always down. I have to fax copies of ticket stubs to AMC to get credit for whatever I attended.

Outside the fact that we are selling tickets for the new Hunger Games movie we have not had a new wide opening release (over 1000 screens) since “Don Jon” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” (also in Fresh Meadows). We are getting basically the usual old Fresh Meadows rejects, Korean pictures and the occasional art house film. This week 3 more new films open in Fresh Meadows including the smaller release “The Fifth Estate” and we get nothing of course. They don’t even have “Fifth Estate” with any scheduled bargain before 11:55 am showings. And if we do get a wide release it usually is also in Fresh Meadows so they can get rid of it first when grosses are dropping but we will still have it. I complain a lot but wonder does anyone know what the story is on this place. Will it ever close? Will it ever be converted to new seats which was supposedly postponed from this year’s late summer?

What extra one. I spoke to the AMC headquarters once and they said only small pictures play at our one. Really what about everything through last year and the few big ones we shared when they were new with Fresh Meadows when they opened (Despicable Me 2, Monsters University, Hangover, Man of Steel, World War Z). Around this neck of the woods it’s called Cinemart 2.

I concur with Chuck. I’ve always had great email exchanges with AMC on various complex issues and had them dealt with to my satisfaction.

Oh and please watch the double posts as well. I’m pretty sure you can go back and delete the extra one.

Ooh at the last moment they’ve added a Korean film “Secretly and Gently”.

When will this place finally shut its doors? After Despicable Me 2 came in we did not get Grown Ups 2 or Pacific Rim. Both went to our sister theater in Fresh Meadows. This week there are 4 pictures opening in over a 1000 theaters, all will be in Fresh Meadows and we get 2 of their rejects again. I may stop going to AMC theaters. What’s the point of a stubs card when your theater gets nada new movies. Maybe it can become another weight watching joint or fast food chain. Maybe AMC can redo the theater like Fresh Meadows and cut the seating capacity down to 26 seats per screen.

Love this chain, go to Fresh Meadows Wednesday and the escalator is still out. How often does it run? Does it have a special schedule and you book it in advance? Today go to Bay Terrace for 9:15 am showing of Monsters University (a rare wide opening here) and the showing is cancelled, projection problems. I am disgusted with AMC.

Yes Tinseltoes but up till the redo of Fresh Meadows we usually got wide releases in the first week of release.

“Darcydt,” it’s good that you weren’t around in the days before saturation distribution began. You would have needed to travel into Manhattan to see the newest movies, where they usually played exclusively at one theatre before moving to the neighborhoods. And in Queens, Bayside was not one of the first neighborhoods in Queens to get them.

I should call myself “Broken Record”. Once again no Gatsby or Peeples here this week but moveovers of 3 from Fresh Meadows. 42, Big Wedding and Oblivion. Sad because “Iron Man” has all the box office, both 42 and Oblivion are still in the top 5 so we may seem hip. We also get another limited release “Mud”. The limited release pictures seem to stay 2 weeks , Company You Keep being the most recent example here.

FUROR OVER THE BAY TERRACE’S “LEFTOVER MOVIES”: QUEENSCOURIER

DARCYDT
DARCYDT on April 25, 2013 at 5:53 pm

This week moveovers 18 & 19 from Fresh Meadows for this year come (Scary Movie 5 & Evil Dead) + our 3rd limited release Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep”. No “Big Wedding” and “Pain & Gain” but wait they are actually selling tickets for Iron Man 3!! Shocking! I actually contacted the AMC corporate offices/guest services who say the theater because it is smaller is an AMC Independent which means and I quote “that it will receive a number of smaller-marketed films rather than large releases”. The theater has more seats now than Fresh Meadows.

When I went to “Disconnect” there Sunday I asked the ushers (3 were together, 1 of which I recognized) and they said what Fresh Meadows said was not true. They claimed Iron Man 3, Hangover 3 and Fast and the Furious 6 would be there but the theater would probably be renovated in August. My interpretation is yes those films may come there but only when they’re played out in Fresh Meadows and at the end of July AMC will close the theater for good unless someone else buys it. Though the schedules are not up yet for the weekend, the Thursday night schedule has Fresh Meadows getting both openers “Pain and Gain” and “The Big Wedding”. It looks like “The Croods” and “Scary Movie 5” being dropped since they have no showings after 6 pm. The 10 PM sneak previews are at 9 PM this time, at least for “The Big Wedding”. My guess both those pictures leaving there will come to Bay Terrace (The Croods would be returning). Maybe another limited release or Korean picture will come in also. Funny AMC sent me an e-mail on Monday asking what I thought of the Bay Terrace theater when I saw “Disconnect”. They occasionally send me these e-mails maybe every 3 months or so.

Went to Fresh Meadows today to see “Oblivion” and asked the manager would Bay Terrace ever be getting any first run films (wide releases) again. Yes we got “Disconnect” this week along with 2 more moveovers. The manager who is there 2 months and said he was a manager at Bay Terrace previously says the booker only want the new movies in Fresh Meadows since ithas been redone and the movies will only go to Bay Terrace once they are finished there.

Wow we now have 2 Korean movies this week with the addition of “Fists of Legend” tothe 4th week of “New World” Plus we get another moveover of Olympus Has Fallen. But wait we have a new film “Place Beyond the Pines” on 2 screens, why 2 screens. Of course neither “42” or “Scary Movie 5” comes here. Not one picture predicted to be in the top 6 this weekend is here. Did I mention they got rid of “The Croods” which made 20 million last weekend. Can’t have anything here that might make money.

Are we gonna close soon or get renovated? Although I didn’t want to see either film going wide this week the theater only gets 2 more moveovers from Fresh Meadows, “The Host” and “The Call”. We’re Cinemart 2.

DARCYDT
DARCYDT on March 26, 2013 at 7:54 pm

Again all 3 films opening this week, Tyler Perry’s new one, G.I. Joe and the Host only open in the sister screen in Fresh Meadows. Of course 2 more Fresh Meadows films being kicked out move over, Burt Wonderstone and Jack the Giant Slayer.

It’s gone after 17 weeks, Silver Linings Playbook. Records breaking at Bay Terrace this upcoming weekend. 4 new films the second time this year, Korean film New World, The Croods, Admission and Spring Breakers. But there are also 2 moveovers from Fresh Meadows playing a few performances a day, Identity Thief & 21 and Over.That means there are 6 films new to Bay Terrace this week, wild for a 6 plex. Only Oz: The Great and Powerful remians. I remember when I lived in the Bronx near Parkchester the American had 5 openers 1 week (2 on a Wednesday and 3 on Friday). If I remember right nothing stayed longer than 2 weeks.

At the last moment Bay Terrace brings in Stoker with Nicole Kidman.

DARCYDT on March 13, 2013 at 6:27 am

It is annoying when they don’t bring any new pictures in and considering they had 3 Monday for Oz which made 79 million on the weekend it seems more like a death wish for the theater.

Will there be a parade? Plaque erected when they break a record. I mean, wow 17 weeks for a movie that is obviously making them money being allowed to continue playing there. Such an amazing accomplishment. Maybe they can get Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence for the parade. Please please take photos and post them here. This is so mindboggling. 17 WEEKS!!! WOW!!!!
