And that RogerA is why film is dying. I argue with people all the time that there is a difference. I saw interstellar last year at the Ziegfeld in 70MM. Big difference between that and the digital trailers. The public today just dont care. As long long as they have the reclining seats and the loud ear crushing sound and tons of special effects, they’re happy. Say 70MM to someone and they’ll say “what?”

Star Wars will be an IMAX release. The IMAX version and the 70mm blow up will made off a 4K digital intermediate. So Star Wars will be in IMAX theaters the Hateful Eight won’t be in IMAX. There is a big difference between IMAX and Ultra-Panavision. The Hateful Eight was shot on 65mm and I hope to see a print right off the original negative. The Hateful Eight only needs to be in a few theaters like The Dome so the people who really care about seeing it in 70mm can see it. Why would the Dome want to play Star Wars when it will be at the Chinese and Universal?

Most of the theaters have junked their film projectors. So now they have to rent film projectors to show film there are very few full time 70mm screens left. There are not that many big screens left any more. As Long as The Hateful Eight is in 70mm on a big screen in any theater within 100 miles I will go there to see it! The majority of people will just be happy with the digital version.

^ sorry for stating this, but it’s been on most exhibitor’s minds that ‘Hateful Eight’s 70mm release is the dumbest timing of the year, when most said large (and/or) 70mm screens will be playing ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Yeah, The Hateful Eight in 70mm would be worth coming back for. It’s apparently getting an exclusive two-week Road Show presentation in select theaters starting Christmas Day.

RogerA on October 5, 2015 at 2:21 pm

It’s the only theater designed for ultra panavision. I expect they will run The Hateful Eight in 70mm film. That will be something worth driving 100 miles to see.

Took the family to see “The Martian” at the Dome over the weekend. First visit in over three years. Saw it in 2D and the presentation was great as always. As soon as the image fills that massive concave screen, you know the hour-long drive was worth it. Had a burger at Bob’s Big Boy in Burbank afterwards. Yes, a pretty good little Saturday.

I see Dome tickets are already on sale for “Spectre.” Nothing yet for “The Martian” which opens next week but they’ve got ‘em for a flick still more than a month out.

I hate to say this, but I’ve only been in the Cinerama Dome once in my entire life to see the premiere of Spider-Man in 2002. I thought it was just amazing when going inside. On the downside, I do remember this one man with a cowboy hat sitting in front of me almost ruining the entire experience, but I think he either moved or took it off, to which I was relieved. The ceiling was so cool and I’m about to check out the pictures posted on here to get some nostalgia. Long live the done! I mean, I practically have no excuse for not going back there since I frequent the Arclight a lot and do in fact live in the Los Angeles area.

theater management has always been tight with the buck so no wonder they never got top quality people to work for them. Skilled projectionists are a dying breed because management wont pay much more than minimum for a job that should be skilled labor

Looks like they’re trying the Dome “2001” screening again: Sunday, May 10 @ 5PM & 8:45 PM.

RobertAlex on April 27, 2015 at 11:44 am

So that is why the lobby was packed with hundreds of people at 6pm when I got out of “Woman in Gold” last night. We wanted to see the 5pm “2001” show but there were no two seats together other then the front few rows on the side. That is a lot money they had to refund.

I wish them well, from a projectionist with over 39 years expierience.

Today’s shows of 2001 were cancelled on the spot due to a projectionist walkout in support of the ongoing wage protests. It was something!

Which version of Blade Runner?

Flix70 on March 5, 2015 at 8:36 am

Looks like both Blade Runner and Apocalypse Now will get one-shot screenings at the Dome this month as part of Arclight Presents…Crew Picks: Blade Runner on Wed., 3/18 and Apocalypse on Wed., 3/11. Tickets on sale now. Apocalypse is listed as a digital presentation with Blade Runner screening in 35mm.

Been here a few times since Interstellar and have been impressed each time. Inherent Vice in 70mm did look a bit grainy but it went with the mood of the story. I was not really sure what the story was fully about but it was a nice touch to see a movie that evoked the 70’s and the presentation did as well.

I can say that the masking issue seems to be fixed!! Both Mockingjay and American Sniper ( both in digital) used the full scope screen and the bottom masking was normal and reached to the bottom of both corners of the screen ! No more distorted image on that great screen. Was also nice to see maybe 50 empty seats today for the 1245 show. I am cautiously optimistic that they figured it out. American Sniper looked great and hopefully they will keep this masking configuration in place for future shows.

RogerA on December 25, 2014 at 4:48 pm

This director should do a good 70mm blow up of There Will Be Blood and run that at the Dome. That would sell some tickets.

RogerA on December 25, 2014 at 3:13 pm

Oh so the filmmaker wanted to make it look and sound like a low budget cheaply made film.

The grain in Inherent Vice was intentional to match the 1970 setting of the film. Sound wasn’t bad to me.

Danny Baldwin

I thought the presentation was great. I saw it on both DCP and 70mm. The movie is naturally very, very grainy. The movie is also Flat, so it doesn’t have as many of the funky illumination at the sides of the frame you get with full 2.20 in there.

RogerA on December 24, 2014 at 8:49 am

I Was going to see Inherent Vice in 70mm but I heard the blowup was grainy and the sound was bad.

RobertAlex on November 17, 2014 at 4:40 pm

I would highly recommend seeing it here if you can. The screen is really awesome when the masking isn’t all jacked up like it is during the digital presentations. They still do not use the full 86 feet of the screen, but its still massive. I sat upstairs for this one, first row on the side as that was all that was left. I normally like to sit downstairs, center aisle seat in the last 4 or 5 rows, but I am tall and if someone is in front of me it doesn’t really bug me so much. If you sit upstairs, the first row center is best as then you wont have anyone in front of you. I like the sound equally from both areas.

moviebuff82 on November 17, 2014 at 2:57 pm

I never been to this theater but I suggest sitting in the middle of the seats with the surround sound enveloping you and for the best picture quality.
