Agreed Mark. The issue is that the lease is up for renewal and AMC needs at least a 7 year lease in order to make up the cost of going digital.In the past they haven’t gotten more than a 2 year lease at a time. Also you are right about Paramount, in addition they are stopping making trailers in 35mm so in the future there may be no or very little trailers in front of the films.

Most studios will soon follow suit. I know at my local amc in rockaway with digital prints they can show more trailers than on film. This is why like 10 years from now digital will overtake 35mm film as the go to for presenting movies. That’s when the cost of upgrading screens to digital will go down.

Markinthedark, the lease ended in December. They couldn’t agree on a long term lease so for right now they are going month to month.

I noticed the Factoria has showtimes on June 27th for the next Transformers movie. Did Paramount change their “no more 35mm” policy or did AMC install some digital projectors?

I know of one theater that was offered it. So it seems that film is still available, but at a price.

I would also like to note that AMC is leasing the building from SRO. SRO would like to redevelop the property this is a quote from the SRO website “The building is currently an eight screen theater. Zoning allows SRO to construct a six story 135,000 sq. ft. office building. A full building user has the opportunity to participate in the design process.” So I would be willing to bet that is why they will only do 2 year lease. see this link http://www.sterlingrealty.com/factoria-cinema/

Went there with my youngest today to catch Penguins of Madagascar and the friendly employee told me that they had reached an agreement with the property owner and will be upgrading soon with “new seats and digital projection”. Digital conversion starts in the next couple weeks. Did not get any clarification if the new seats would be the recliners.

I am happy the Factoria will have new life but sad about the loss of 35mm and that the theater will lose some SRO-ness.

If AMC is investing in upgrading the theater I wonder if they will finally take down the confusing Cineplex Odeon signage outside. Aside from the box-office there is nothing that says AMC on the exterior of the theater. Last time I went a confused patron walked up to the box office and asked where the AMC Loews theater was located, not knowing he had already found it.

Seems like some work is happening there next week. Not sure if this is digital conversion or new seats or both. On the schedule for Monday-Thursday 2 to 3 screens per day seem to be shut down. On the website Interstellar goes from being “Interstellar on 35MM film” to just plain “Interstellar” on Tuesday. Hobbit opens Wednesday on 2 screens with a total of 6 screens operating that day.
