a question for my fellow moviegoers. for the first several years of the movie biz whatever “movie theaters” existed in Manhattan were music halls. vaudeville theaters and legitimate theaters etc… renovated to show movies. but I have always wanted to find which was the 1st theater built in Manhattan brick by brick from the ground up with the intent of being a movie theater. any guesses as to the answer or how to find out?

Oh yeah definitely. The best form of digital projection since it can replicate the scale of 70mm. Perhaps for way smaller screens the xenon projectors aren’t too bad. That’s as far as I’ll go.

How is laser imax compared to Dolby

digital3d on April 26, 2019 at 12:58 pm

You’re right. It might be that TCL has sent Fandango the memo while AMC has not.

I agree, it didn’t do it justice at all. Laser is also a form of digital projection though, just much better and capable than the xenon one which really wasn’t designed for giant screens. But – laser is here to stay now!

ACS12 on April 26, 2019 at 12:22 pm

Actually, Fandango does know the difference between the two.

For example, it shows IMAX Laser on the TCL Chinese Theatres page –

This is what it shows for Lincoln Square –

I’m just glad to know it’s a mistake on Fandango’s part and not that they’re back to showing movies with those crappy digital projectors. They didn’t do that giant screen justice. You can try to defend them all you want, but I’m not going to change my mind on them. No offense.

I don’t think Fandango knows how to defferantiate between standard IMAX xenon and IMAX with Laser. Same thing with AMC Empire 25, which also has an IMAX with Laser.

But you can be assured this is an IMAX with Laser theater.

I have a question. Why is Fandango showing the old IMAX digital with dual projectors for Avengers: Endgame at this theater, instead of Laser?

Marvel Studios 22 Movie Marathon schedule in photo section.

digital3d on April 23, 2019 at 7:05 pm

Marathon is in a standard 2D theater. Talked to some people there. Some are taking breaks and pretty much are sleeping through films (it’s almost 60 hours after all). The theater gave them toothbrushes and blankets as well as tissues (for Endgame I assume).

It’s a bit ironic because the press screenings for Endgame are literally next door.

Some people traveled from different states and cities as this is one of few full MCU marathons in the country. I think Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn is the only other in NYC doing it, and that has significantly fewer seats.

The marathon ended up sold out with almost 400 seats in the auditorium at $125 a ticket. Those fans are ambitious, they really are.

Good luck moviegoers on enduring the 59 hour marvel marathon tomorrow at this location wonder if they’ll show it in dolby cinema with the recliners since it’s 22 movies long.

Number 1 but Avengers was filmed in IMAX DIGITAL CAMERAS

bigjoe59 on April 9, 2019 at 3:05 pm


for the opening weekend April 26-28 how can I tell if a showing is in the Dolby Cinema? I figure End Game is the perfect film to experience the Dolby Cinema for the first time.

moviebuff82 on April 7, 2019 at 2:45 pm

It’s been this way since phantom menace

digital3d on April 7, 2019 at 2:45 pm

It’s just a way for websites to get clicks. One person sells a ticket on eBay for a higher sum and it becomes a story on 20 outlets. That’s just how movie news works.

bigjoe59 on April 7, 2019 at 2:35 pm


what’s all this i hear/read about people paying astronomical sums to scalpers for opening tickets to End Game? i just looked at Fandango and none of the shows for opening weekend i looked at were sold out.

IMAX said people prefer 2D shows in the United States. Over 80% of U.S. moviegoers watch movies in 2D instead of 3D. They’ll still do 3D for James Cameron films or others where the studio would like that, but for most they plan to prioritize 2D.

This goes back to 2017:

It took me all day of pulling my hair out with my phone and computer to get tickets to Avengers in Imax on Thursday April 25th. Does anyone know why most showings of Avengers are in 2D but for some reason they show it in Imax 3D for the 2:30p showings only? Why is it more and more big blockbusters are shown in Imax 2D only and no Imax 3D?

markp on April 1, 2019 at 7:56 pm

Mike (saps) the problem is AMC only has one technician for the NY/NJ area. I met him last year while running 70MM here last year. To say he is overwhelmed would be an understatement. He spends half his time just dealing with stupid little petty issues.

Re: Dolby ATMOS coming to Kips Bay? I did plan to see DUMBO here at Lincoln last week, but their senior morning price for the standard version in 2D was $17.29. Saw it at Kips Bay in Theater 8 last week, senior morning for $8.49 with an extra perk!! Noticed the sound was particularly good. Looked up and saw the 10 ceiling speakers, and my seat rumbled several times. Seems they’re making Theater 8 into Dolby. IMAX is 2 theaters down. Enjoyed the movie. Yep.. they do go to DREAMLAND Coney Island??!!

It’s the bulb in the projector, speak to the manager or contact headquarters. It’s a chronic problem that drives me up the wall.

bigjoe59 on March 31, 2019 at 2:38 pm


this is a question for people who saw Dumbo at this theater this past weekend. I don’t like this new trend in dark films meaning the visuals not the dramatic tone. I saw the film at the 19th East and found the film as dark as Solo: A Stars Story and Captain Marvel. I don’t get it. they spend millions on a film and can’t afford proper lighting? even the scenes in Dumbo which took place during the day were unusually dark.

AMC has a few in NJ with BOTH Dolby and IMAX.

In Northern NJ ALONE, you can to the AMC Paramus, Clifton, Rockaway, and Elizabeth theaters all within 20 miles of each other, and have dolby and imax.

For IMAX, go to Paramus, they have the largest. For Dolby, go to Elizabeth, they turn off those hallway lights unlike other dolby’s and are the newest one out.

bigjoe59 on March 19, 2019 at 2:40 pm


thank you to my fellow posters for their replies to the darkness issue I started. a question- is it remotely possible that some directors consciously shot scenes that are under lit to be artsy?

digital3d on March 19, 2019 at 9:20 am

Many locations have both Dolby and IMAX. (34th St for instance as well.)

They’re seperate companies who made seperate deals with AMC. It might be bothering them but they can’t do much about it.

LARGE_screen_format on March 19, 2019 at 5:10 am

A general question regarding AMC, how common is it for one site to have both Dolby Cinema and IMAX auditoriums? I believe AMC Lincoln 13 and AMC Empire 25 have both?

In the UK there is currently just one Dolby Cinema (Odeon Luxe, Leicester Square London) with another opening soon in Leeds. Neither of which include an IMAX screen in the same multiplex. Which is what raised this question. Wondered if it bothered either Dolby or IMAX having the other competing if you will in the same location?
