70MM Phantom Thread now booked thru March 8. It may go longer if it wins any academy awards.

Chilean Oscar nominee “A FANTASTIC WOMAN” just opened at the Walter Reade. Swedish nominee “THE SQUARE” is at the Elinor Bunin. The two Lincoln Center theatres bought a full page promo ad in the New York Times last week, so it looks like they expect to help fill the void on the UWS.

a question pertaining to the recent closing of both the Sunshine and nearby Lincoln Plaza cinemas. while I have been to the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s two theaters- the Walter Reade and Bruin Monroe I never remember either one ever showing what I would call an A level low budget American indie or foreign language film. for instance Darkest Hour, Wonder Wheel or Hostiles were among the last films to play the Lincoln Plaza. so do you think the Reade and the Bruin Monroe will now start booking the A level low budget American indies and prominent foreign language that normally would have played only at the Lincoln Plaza and Sunshine?

At least no one has been hurt in the escalator here compared to its sister theater…

70MM Phantom Thread being held over for a 6th week starting Jan 26.

The reserved seating for imax at AMC is necessary because it’s quite popular along with dolby cinema.

yeah, kinda the same thing, the movie theater Jersey Gardens is directly across from Newark Aiport

moviebuff82 on January 14, 2018 at 2:43 pm

U mean Elizabeth not Newark airport

alpinedownhiller on January 14, 2018 at 2:41 pm

Other theaters like Paramus, Newark Airport, Rockaway have much more asymmetrical theaters and you may need to be quite a few seats over from max seat #/2 to be centered.

alpinedownhiller on January 14, 2018 at 2:39 pm

Also, FWIW, the seats did seem to be very slightly asymetrical. I could be wrong, but it felt more like seat 23 is center rather than between seats 21 and 22. (but with such a wide screen, a few seats this way or that still doesn’t feel too far off, even for 3D where being dead center is very important IMO- in fact, I sometimes wonder if people who don’t like 3D don’t like it because they don’t sit dead center)

Saw Last Jedi in Laser IMAX 3D here. This time my glasses had no issues, none of the problem where the right eye coating was like half missing. Perfect 3D corner to corner with zero ghosting. Awesome quality. Much better 3D than regular IMAX and even moreso compared to Real3D. Deep blacks, nice contrast, more detailed. Fantastic.

Not sure what happened last time, both our glasses had the exact same problem where the right eye seemed to be coated only in the center and if you eye spacing didn’t exactly match that, HORRIBLE double vision for the right eye. Not sure if they shipped them a whole new set of glasses, went through them and replaced all the bad ones or whether it was just total bad luck last time to get two of just a few bad ones or this time total good luck to get two of the few good ones (probably not this considering lack of any other recent complaints).

Anyway, it seems the Laser IMAX 3D is working well here now. (Now if only they would start spreading it to more theaters (and if only they would build some more true IMAX locations, there are so, so few, not one in all of northern NJ despite that being one the richest and more densely populated places in the whole country; sure NYC isn’t far BUT as soon as you are over the river it suddenly means a much longer and more expensive trip and something you just do all the time).)

granted with the screen being so super huge here, a few seats this way or that isn’t as far off center as on most screens, but it is still good to know, since if it was non-symmetrical and you already had to chose somewhat out, going one side vs. the other could start putting you somewhat more out there

alpinedownhiller on January 6, 2018 at 2:30 pm

Thanks, so I guess this is one of the rare symmetrical seats to screen auditoriums.

alpine, if you try book a ticket on a day that hasn’t yet sold one, the first automatic generated option is G22, so that is the center.

alpinedownhiller on January 6, 2018 at 11:16 am

So nobody knows what seat is dead center in the renovated IMAX? (talking side to side not front to back and also talking about the rows that have the max number of seats across, so not the front few rows nor the very back row).

markp on January 5, 2018 at 4:52 pm

bigjoe59, the 70MM will be there one more week as of now till the 11th. Its possible it could go to the 14th. The programs are gone. I don’t know if they are getting anymore.

alpinedownhiller on January 5, 2018 at 3:58 pm

I forget, what seats are dead center in the renovated IMAX? Is it like 21-22 (although most theaters do not have screen and seats symmetrical, often the entrance pushes seats over to one side more) or more like 24-25?

bigjoe59 on January 5, 2018 at 3:04 pm


how long will The Phantom Thread be shown in 70MM and how will the program be available?

xbs2034 on January 4, 2018 at 9:49 am

The Commuter is the next IMAX release, but it is listed as having “select IMAX theaters” so I’m sure The Last Jedi will still have most IMAX theaters. I believe Force Awakens even played here all the way till Deadpool in Feb, but Last Jedi seems to be playing out quicker so I expect its run to end with either 12 Strong or The Maze Runner.

moviebuff82 on January 4, 2018 at 9:43 am

It’s still playing in imax as of this weekend. 12 strong is the next imax release .

mhvbear is correct. Disney requires theaters to have TLJ run for 4 weeks in their largest auditorium. Given that Dolby theaters don’t have that many seats that may be the reason some theaters pulled it.

mhvbear on January 4, 2018 at 4:09 am

Disney required theaters to guarantee at least a 4 week run to book Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

alpinedownhiller on January 3, 2018 at 8:27 pm

Thanks. I was just wondering since a lot of Dolby Cinema screens suddenly pulled TLJ even though they had no new DOlby releases either. Jumanji takes over starting Friday. Seems strange to me, at least in one place, TLJ Dolby screenings have been jammed, even as recently as tonight and yet they still switch to Jumanji on Friday!

digital3d on January 3, 2018 at 7:36 pm

At least until January 12th since there are no other IMAX releases to replace it with before then. However, it will likely play after that date as well.
