Cinemark Egyptian 24 and XD

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This Egyptian-themed theater was opened by Muvico in December 2000 as part of Arundel Mills mall. It is also the first Muvico theater to be opened outside of the company’s home state of Florida and the largest theater in Maryland.

All auditoriums feature digital surround sound, stadium seating with high-back rocking seats and retractable armrests and are wheelchair-accessible. Four auditoriums feature 500 seats and large 60-foot wall-to-wall screens. Auditoriums #7 and #18 include DLP digital projection systems with Dolby Digital Cinema and RealD digital 3D.

The theater also has two party rooms and a playroom with child care.

From March 18, 2009, the theatre was taken over by the Cinemark Theatres chain, and in November 2009, auditorium 12 became a Cinemark XD screen.

It’d be utter cool, if Cinemark could show the recent DCP 4K restoration of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ on the XD screen – maybe before the Fall bluray release. Oh and thanks for the Godfather II update MovieTix86

light output and the 3D of ‘The Avengers’ on the XD screen was great, strangely though the audio didn’t have a lot of oomph in the bass department.

last Thursday’s matinee of ‘Yellow Submarine’ looked amazing – the multitude of colors really gave the DLP projector a work out and the new 5.1 soundmix was a delight.

I saw the excellent Prometheus movie here on the XD screen and in 3D. Presentation and sound were exceptional. With Ridley Scott filming it in 3D, the holographic imagery and tactical displays are truly amazing. The large screen experience is especially appreciated during the sequence when the shot of the planet starts to rotate with the ship coming into focus. I was developing vertigo during the rotation part, but fortunately, it stopped before I could get nauseated. :) Some parts of the multi channel sound could be noticed especially around seat level, which adds to the immersion experience of the movie. I wanted to catch it at the AMC Tysons in ETX but they’ve got Tom Cruise’s ‘Rock of Ages’ movie there :P

The $14.75 price is more palatable, albeit slightly, then the $17 or $18 that AMC and Regal charges for 3D IMAX-lite.

For those frequent moviegoers out there. If you sign up on Cinemark’s email list, they send you a weekly coupon for a free beverage when you buy nachos or popcorn. I spent $5 on the nachos and got the $4 drink for free! Much better then paying $9 for the combo. When you think about it though, that little pack of Nachos may cost $1..$1.50 retail at your convenience store and the little ¼ cup of cheese..maybe 50c..you know what kind of profit killing they are making on that $9 combo price.

On its last day on the XD Screen, I saw Spiderman in 3D. I have to admit, I was apprehensive about this reboot. What is the need to reboot it other then to save money on production costs by eliminating its star and director? The FX and sound were first rate. Sound was good and, again, the 3D was dark. When I left, being the last one out, they stopped the movie. I guess there was no scenes at the end hinting at the next movie. The Starbucks drinks @ 4.50 aren’t bad but they aren’t Venti sized for what you could get at a real Starbucks.

I love the ice cream here at the Egyptian.

As for ‘Spiderman’ the only extra scene came early on during the credit crawl.

I thought the 7.1 mix on the XD screen for ‘Prometheus’ was beyond stellar.

In all honesty, I’ve never been to this theatre. But I keep hearing it’s stellar.

so I saw Disney’s ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’ on the XD screen yesterday – and I was a bit underwhelmed by it, mind you it was great to see this where it supposed to be seen – on the big screen… but. The image I though seemed soft and not as sharp as I hoped since a recent 4K restoration was done on the film (and has been making the rounds to select L.A theaters).

According to Barco’s Auro 11.1 locator on their website (http://www.barco.com/en/StaticPages/Locators/Digitalcinema/AuroLocator), the XD auditorium (#12) has Auro 11.1 installed. Cinemark isn’t specifying whether “I, Frankenstein” is showing in Auro but I’m assuming that it is. Other Cinemark XD locations with Auro 11.1 aren’t designating whether they’re showing the same film in 11.1 either.

On the flip side, Cinemark XD locations with Dolby Atmos are designating that the film is being shown in that format.

I totally missed the news that the XD screen was converted to playback Auro encoded movies. Yet NOT advertising this aspect on their website is rather pointless in my mind.
