The Dark Knight is showing at 9:00 PM daily. Those performances are pretty well sold out through at the weekend. Both films are being shown 15/70mm.

Hello-

I thank mhvbear for their reply. if understand the info correctly 2001 won’t be the IMAX theater’s sole occupant such limited screenings.

I wonder if the loews name will be removed from this theater in the near future since AMC is phasing out the name completely while it renovates the loews theatres.

Hello-

I just read an article that said tickets for the film’s one week release in IMAX went on sale August 3rd. i see nothing on this theater’s official ticket order page.

Hello-

what exactly is the schedule of 2001 being shown
in the IMAX auditorium?

Bill Huelbig, No I will not. The theatre had retained Local 306 projectionists for 70MM IMAX showings. I’m hoping something comes along soon. I only worked two days all of July and have nothing till August 18.

markp, will you be running the 70mm IMAX show of “2001” at this theater? If yes, congratulations. I’ll be there on 8/24 for my 79th theatrical viewing. It should be astounding.

The IMAX screen will also be hosting 15/70 film showings of 2001 on the week of August 24. Which explains why Dark Knight was limited to once a day

The latest Mission Impossible movie is doing quite well in Imax given the fact that the final scene was shot with Imax cameras. I wonder if they’ll replace the Loews theatres sign with the AMC signage?

bigjoe59, at the AMC conversions I worked on a few years back, the screen sizes are usually the same size or bigger than before.

Hello-

when the Loews auditorium has finished its conversion to a Dolby Cinema what will the screen size be compared to the original screen?

Actually I’d guess 70MM because if it would be Laser, it should be more than 4 theaters that get the re-release. Either way I’m super-happy that we’re getting this re-release. Will be a way to experience a historic film on a historic screen. The Dark Knight was a game-changer for IMAX and Lincoln Square was one of the few places to experience it in all its glory back when it came out. Thank you, IMAX!

More likely laser, since the prints for imax might’ve degraded over time. The laser could be a a restored print from the imax print for digital presentation. 10 years ago, this was the closest theater to get to to see Nolan’s masterpiece the way it was intended to be seen. Sadly, i didn’t go see it that way instead opting to go see it in mansfield in digital scope and later i got the bluray for xmas which is a cropped imax version; the dvd version has a second disc with the imax scenes intact in the 4:3 ratio.

This will be 1 of 4 theaters in the country to get a IMAX re-release of The Dark Knight for its anniversary in on August 24th. Wonder if they’re gonna do laser for the print or stick to 70mm.

When did it open in only 2 theaters? In November or in January? If in November, then those 2 theaters were 2 of the 4.

If in January, then those 2 theaters were 2 of the 815.

A wide release is commonly known, as others have mentioned, to be 600+ theaters. CMBYN, in January, opened in 815 theaters. That’s more than 600, so it’s a wide release. The November release was a limited release.

Hello-

to digital3d. I thank you for your reply. its just that since CMBYN only opened in 2 theaters in Manhattan I don’t see how that can be classified as a “wide release”. I thought a “wide release” was when a film opened in 2,000-3,000 theaters on the same day.

digital3d on July 10, 2018 at 3:01 pm

I’m not sure I understand the question.

CMBYN had two released, one in November 2017 and one in January 2018. See http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=callmebyyourname.htm You can see on that website that the limited opening weekend was 4 theaters and the wide opening weekend was 815 theaters.

Hello-

oops!!! I meant to say only 1 theater in each city.

bigjoe59
bigjoe59 on July 10, 2018 at 1:59 pm

Hello-

does that mean since Call Me By Your Name opened in every major U.S city although in only opened in say only theater in each city that it had a “wide release”?

It opened up as wide later. Many films get a limited release first (mostly NYC and LA theaters) and then a wide one later.

Hello-

I thank my fellow posters for their replies to my question as to what constitutes a “wide release”. the film in question was “We Are Your Friends” with Zac Efron. so since it opened in only 2 theaters in Manhattan I don’t see how that constituted a “wide release”.

xbs2034 on July 10, 2018 at 7:24 am

Traditionally a limited release means less than 600 domestic theaters (and I think the theater count matters more than the cinema it plays in, many NYC theaters including Lincoln Square of course play both wide and limited releases). Though in this age of the biggest blockbusters getting over 4000 theaters, I have seen some unofficially move that mark to 1000 theaters.

Also not an art film playing only at art cinemas. Usually “wide release” means a movie playing at mainstream theaters everywhere.

I think it comes from the world “nationwide”, meaning it’s not a limited release such as New York and LA only.
