ETX is on the 3rd floor. It’s an IMAX'esque unmaked full screen with speakers on the sides, back and CELING (!!!) of the auditorium. Widescreen shot films sit dead center of the screen ala IMAX, too.

They have finished the conversion to all digital now.

AMC’s new ETX large format auditorium has been installed in this theatre. I haven’t been here since it opened so I don’t know which floor it’s on. I would assume it’s on the 3rd floor since the IMAX is on the 1st floor.

True. I just find the AMC CENTURY 15 an unpleasant theatre. But I do agree getting the seats ahead of time is the best thing about filmgoing these days.

Brad: I was a non-believer in that whole assigned seating business…until I tried it. After experiencing the joy of not having to stand in line for opening night of Star Wars Episode 3 (and will experience the same joy with “Avatar IMAX” tomorrow night), I saw the light and am not looking back! :)

The earlier you buy your seat, the less crappy it’ll be. Remember: the early bird always catches the worm!

All assigned? I guess it helps to pickup your crappy seat ahead of time. :–) It works for Arclight, but everything works for the Arclight Hollywood.

Yeah…and $20-30 bucks a ticket – FOOD NOT INCLUDED!

What about the new one in Pasadena, that has the waiters? Is that assigned seating as well?

Just found out that this joint is switching to an all assigned seating policy. This makes the 5th theatre in LA County that’s all assigned seating. The Bridge also has all assigned seating but only in selected auditoriums.

65ft side masking screens…MUSIC TO MY EARS!

I agree Chris. Here in Chicago, AMC’s River East 21 is just like this. That’s why I can’t wait for Kerasotes to show them how it’s done at the Roosevelt Collection with their planned 65ft side-masking screens.

I come here pretty regularly. The auds are more spacious than the old 14 plex – but I really can’t stand the fixed length screens at this and all the newly built AMC’s. The screens are super large for 1:85 projected films, but for 2:35 widescreen films, they mask both the top AND the bottom of the screen which makes the screen look smaller. LAME!
