According to this link, this theater is opening a Cinemark “Extreme Digital” auditorium on November 6th. I’ve seen photos of their new creation, and it looks pretty good. It’s no IMAX or 70mm, but it appears to be better than the LIEMAX screens that AMC is opening up. I know I will most certainly be making the trek to Evanston when it opens.

Pro’s: film title selection always includes a couple titles in very limited release (some other theatres should have this variety;
bargain matinee prices, best buy is 1st show of the day;
free parking in lot across Maple St (my girlfriend reminds me to validate my parking ticket in the little machine at theatre);

one Con; restrooms for the theatres one must walk a distance and through the dining area! What is this, didn’t they ever have to go real bad and not want to miss anything? Sheesh.

ELS Architects in Berkeley, California designed the Century 12/Cinearts 6 Theater & Retail while working with DeStefano in Chicago. I’m hoping that the soundproofing details managed to silence the trains? How did that work out?

I have been here several times and have never heard the train. It is across an alley and up a hill. So it isn’t quite the Blues Brothers effect.

Anway, whatever sound-proofing they did seems to get the job done.

Judging by the website for this theatre, it looks like it is all digital projection. Can anybody confirm that?

They had their last film presentation on Dec. 4, 2010. It was a midnight showing of Tim Burton’s “Batman.” The theatre is indeed all digital now. Not sure whether the xD screens are 4K, but the rest of the theatre is most likely 2K.
