Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn

After a failed attempt to renovate the Metro Theatre on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Alamo Drafthouse finally makes their long-awaited New York City debut at Downtown Brooklyn’s City Point, an up-and-coming residential-retail complex, built on the rear portion of the site of the RKO Albee Theatre. The theatre made its soft opening on October 21st, 2016, and made its official opening on October 28th.

Alamo’s signature in-theatre dining and customized pre-shows are integral to the Alamo Drafthouse moviegoing experience, and this location bears no different. All 7 screens are equipped with Sony 4K projectors and QSC sound systems. Theater 1 is also equipped for 35mm screenings and Theatre 7 is equipped for 70mm presentations.

Correcting John Fink’s post from January 10, 2017: It is Theater One that shows 35mm films such as Terror Tuesday and Weird Wednesday. In my opinion, the 35mm prints they screen are pretty decent. Nothing too scratched or faded. Always as great time there, and projectiin is usually a top class affair.

How’s the audio for 35mm? Is it Dolby Digital, Dolby Stereo, DTS, or SDDS?

This theater is also known as Alamo Drafthouse City Point, which is what the building and mall is called, and where the theater is housed.

Theater 7 is now equipped to screen 70mm features. So far 70mm films screened were first run DUNKIRK and PHANTOM THREAD. Repertory films screened were John Carpenter’s THE THING. Promised to be screened in 2018 is HOWARD THE DUCK.

I heard rumors that Century 21 is closing and the Alamo taking over the 3rd floor with 7 more screens

QUESTION Saw Joker in 70MM at the Alamo Drafhouse Downtown Brooklyn. I notice the film was in flat, I thought all 70MM films are widescreen (scope). The sound sounded like 70MM 6 track.

Films like ET or Back To The Future which were FLAT films, did they look like they were FLAT in 70MM or widescreen.

All the 70MM films I saw in the 1980’s and early 1990’s were widescreen.

All 70mm films are NOT scope! The Joker is flat, as was for example, The Master.

Also, you may be interested in knowing that ‘scope 70mm aspect ratio traditionally is 2.2 wide rather than usual scope (2.35 or 2.39) to accommodate the surround sound that used to be on the film itself. And, “The Joker” was filmed with digital cameras, not 65mm cameras, or 35mm cameras (for blow up to 70mm).
