some scans of theatre tickets, including one for GCC Intracoastal, it was for Whats Love Got To Do With It, all i can remember is it was packed and hot, people were walking the aisles with babies, and i dont think there was any air con just huge extract fans in the ceiling

LM,

I just combed through the text on this page and could not find a single instance in which “Intracoastal” was mispelled, so I can’t see the relevance of your post.

a part of ‘The Sunrise Cinemas’ which are great for indies and foreign film.
Recently saw ‘Apres Vous’ with Daniel Autueil here.

The Intracoastal 8 was originally a General Cinemas (GCC) location, until it closed and sat dormant for about four years. The GCC locations were mostly excellent, although, as with many of their 8-plexes, four of the auditoriums had stereo capabilities, while the other four were monaural. Since the Sunrise Cinemas chain reopened this former GCC location and others, it has made no attempt to upgrade the audio, and so four of the houses are still in monaural. Tens of thousands, if not more, in post-production dollars are spent in mixing and perfecting multi-channel soundtracks, and therefore, exhibitors should respect the art of multi-channel audio presentation by presenting it as such.

The GCC locations, in my opinion, featured the best projection in town, and had perfectly flat screens with durable-looking movable masking. The Intracoastal 8 showcases a fairly pleasing selection of films, balancing commercial and limited releases, and is overall a good venue, conducive to a more cinematic experience than some of larger, more impersonal megaplexes in the area. My recommendation, though: see a film in one of the four larger, stereo-equipped houses, or not at all.
