This theater may not reopen by the middle of july due to the governor not allowing theaters and gyms to open during the next phase of recovery. Not only that but a few movies have been delayed due to what’s going on. On a lighter note, does anyone remember the Mars cafe? It was a sci-fi restaurant that was a bit like Planet Hollywood.

The McDonald’s restaurant that has been around since 1984 when the Empire theater was around is being closed today for good as it focuses on the newer location a few blocks from the original restaurant. As for the Empire 25, it may not reopen by the 15th given that cases nationally are on the rise.

Jaws 2 also came out that weekend and dominated the box office by a hair that weekend but Grease won the box office for the year.

This theater i hope reopens in Mid July just in time for Tenet as well as holdover movies from the spring that have been on demand for awhile. Soon they should renovate the theatres that dont have recliners and plush seating and upgrade the audio and projection.

What if Disney buys the uptown? It could be their flagship theater on the east coast much like the El Capitan is on the west coast, then renovate it with recliners and reserved seating and upgrade the audio to Dolby Atmos and dolby vision projection.

what amc should do when they reopen is to improve the regular projectors. Replace the seats. And keep prices stable.

On this date 40 years ago the best star wars movie ever made the empire strikes back made its debut in 70mm and six track dolby stereo. With a cliffhanger ending and a darker storyline, it didn’t break a new hopes record gross but did solid business enough to warrant a third movie before the prequels were made and disney invested money in the sequels.

Fun fact: AMC shows Amazon movies and many Amazon Prime sneak previews of major movies play at AMC as well as other chains. Most Amazon Fire devices support Dolby audio as well as Dolby vision on some tvs. There’s even amazon commercials before the movie starts. Amazon also owns IMDB and Box office mojo not to mention selling movies on their website. They could use their technology and prowess to improve the AMC app.

Watching the all star game on MLB Network from Seattle from 2001, the theater once hosted the world premiere of the box office flop Summer Catch the weekend before the All Star Game and the stars and musicians from the movie were in attendance.
