Very amusing. I looked over there & yes indeed, your sharing your 2009 photos, Chris, would be most welcome here.

Can I steal the photos that I sent to CinemaTour and upload those? :)

Why isn’t there a single photo in the photo section? Somebody please photo the exterior & post it. Don’t steal a photo from the Net, do your own. And, if possible, the Premiere cinema with its balcony.

The L.A. Live complex as a whole, including the exterior of the Regal Cinemas, was designed by Gensler & Associates, but the theater interior is the work of Blair Ballard Architects.

The Premier Cinema is quite impressive. Love the balcony. A+

Saw “The Avengers” during opening weekend in the Premiere Cinema – which has added Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound to its capabilities. Pretty decent!

I caught the 7PM Saturday show of Harry Potter at the Premiere theater with about 350 seats filled out of 800. The seats are the most comfortable I have sat in along with the Paramount Studios theater.

Although I live in N Hollywood I love LA Live. I have attended six movies at the Regal, a jazz concert at the Grammy Museum, a dance competition in the grand ballroom of the Marriott and the circus at Staples Center. Add in the convention center, all the restaurants and clubs, the Ritz Carlton, the Regal has a lot to draw from.

I attended the Michael Jackson movie in 2009 and caught four L A film fest movies in June. The complex does create a sense of the scale of an old movie palace. There was very good buzz at the film festival. Manhattanites eat your hearts out: I park for free at the North Hollywood subway station and metro down to 7th & Figueroa and have a brisk walk from there.

It’s hard for me to understand why the downtown Laemmle could not stay open. There are as many or more residents living closer to the Laeemle and hotels like the Bonaventure are nearby. I did attend a few movies in 2009 and patronage was very small; I’m amazed-I used to live out of a suitcase and would occasionally find a local movie complex to break the routine. Laemmle should have had advertising in the nearby hotels.

I did notice the top masking, but there was side masking as well. I was watching quite closely for that and when the curtain went up after the pre-show, it seemed a bit wider. Agreed, it is not only side masking as the Dome. Heck, after seeing Cinemarks XD and IMAX, I am happy to see any masking must less curtains.

The Premiere Cinema IS NOT side masked. It is top masked. I’ve seen both 1:85 & 2:35 films in there and have confirmed the difference.

Finally made it here last night to see Inception in the Premier Theatre. I saw it at the 15/70 true Imax in Cathedral City the night before. The sound at the Regal was amazing, truly one of the best theatrical sound systems I have ever heard. However, the picture was not that impressive. Maybe because I saw the same movie less then 24 hours earlier in real IMAX, but there is no comparison. It was not nearly as sharp or clear, and the images were quite muted compared to IMAX. The theatre was fantastic, great seats, amazing side masked large screen, lots of legroom and wonderful service. A great place to see a movie, yet if you have a choice, real 15/70 IMAX is far superior to this digital presentation. BTW, it is true what was said above. The other theatres here are crap. Top masking, small screen shoeboxes.

Is it true that this theatre isn’t doing well outside of premieres?

This theatre will host the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival on June 17 – June 27. . For the last 5 years they were in the Westwood area. The Nokia Theatre will host the World Premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” on June 24th.

@Howard: That’s my batch. Took them on my iPhone – which doesn’t have a flash on it – which would explain why they came out so dark.

Kayoss’s pics of the Premiere Cinema came out better than mine, but I have 2 clear shots of 1 of their regular auditoriums. Those shots pretty much layout the specs of the regular auds. The seats in each aud vary – but there’s not a single one of the 13 that seats over 300. They’re all designed the same – same screen sizes (40 feet or so), same seating layout, same sense of BLAH!

Afew nice pictures there of the complex. But when it comes down to it, I’d rather be at the Chinese Theatre.

I only see one batch of photos with few of auditoriums:

Are those the ones you mean?
In feet, how wide do the smallest appear?

No pics of those teeny tiny regular auditoriums? Never fear. I posted some pics over at CinemaTour.

Digital projection on a screen the size of a postage stamp does not impress me. I don’t care if it’s 4K, 8K, 20K – any theatre that masks their screens to show 2:35 widescreen is a FAIL!

Just had the opportunity to check out this theater, and I think the few reviews I’ve read here are way too harsh. This theatre has fantastic sound (even in the small auds) and every single screen has a Sony 4K digital projector. That’s pretty impressive. I completely agree with all the masking and such complaints regarding the premiere house… but that’s kind of the norm nowadays. We’re extreamly lucky in LA to have a black-box theater like Arclight, and (arguably) the best screen in the world with the original Chinese. For a multiplex, the Regal Cinemas 14 is more then decent. The brightness of the Sony 4K projectors makes up for any of the theater’s shortcomings IMO. Here’s some photos I took of the new theater with my iphone… hopefully they show a bit more: “http://gallery.me.com/okwhatev/101276”

Saw “2012” in the Premiere Cinema on 11/14 and have confirmation: the screen is indeed top masking. BUT the sound is so loud and crisp in there that the masking doesn’t hinder the presentation of a film like that.

Tim: It’s only “State Of The Art” on the outside, brother.

State of the art widescreen isn’t masked at the top.
