it was ahead of its time when it first opened and it was the first modern art house theater that gave the Angelika a run for its money not to mention the Lincoln Plaza Cinemas and Paris Theater. State of the art projection and sound before Landmark at 57th took over. Sadly the cinemas are shut due to covid 19 so people are watching more movies than ever at home.

Those are very old movies. The advantage that the multiplex had over the drive in was privacy, as the drive in screen could be seen by motorists on the other side of the parkway.

Next month will be 15 years since the building was closed, becoming vacant and filled with dust. During that period, NA broke up Viacom and CBS into two and 14 years later were one company again, ViacomCBS, again owned by the Redstone family. Sumner is almost 97 years old and still kicking it. Most of the profits that National Amusements is getting is from ViacomCBS with the growth in PlutoTV, a streaming service with ads that has grown in popularity with the Covid 19 pandemic forcing people to stay home.

Was this one of the first AMCs to be all digital when it opened? My local AMC only had digital projection for preshow and fathom events until they adopted 4k projectors for features and a dual 2k projector for imax before it changed to 4k laser

Could AMC close down their classic theaters if they file for bankruptcy? They have underperformed vs the regular AMCs as well as the Dine Ins.

When this theater reopens this summer expect no Universal movies anytime soon due to the successful on demand release of Trolls 2 by the studio forced AMC to not show films from Universal and Focus. Regal followed suit afterwards, and maybe Cinemark might follow suit if this keeps up unless the issue is resolved.

Disney released a 35mm print of said movie. Wonder if future movies that played in 70mm here were mentioned.

Yesterday marked 20 years since the theater opened as a megaplex. It’s also the second oldest amc still in operation in the tri state area behind the AMC Hamilton 24, which opened a year before in 1999.

30 years ago this week I saw teenage mutant ninja turtles here and saw the sequel at the wayne movietown when it was a ua the following year. Both were good movies but didn’t care for the third one. The 2014 version was ok but the 2016 was meh.

The shares of Cineworld, as well as AMC and Cinemark, are at all time lows as box office sales have been slowed down by recent events as well as growth in streaming at home. 100 years from now, cinemas might be obsolete?

As many of you know this theater and the rest of the chain will be closed for up to 6 to 8 weeks because of the virus that’s going on around the world. Regal was the first then AMC. Bow Tie also affected. Hopefully moviegoing will return back to normal…

SethLewis, actually it was the 1996 blizzard since 12 monkeys came out during christmas of 1995. How many single screens AMC’s are left? Barely none, as AMC introduced the megaplex idea to the US with the Grand Theatre in Texas and has been in business in many forms for the past 100 years. I hope someone who takes over this venue doesn’t demolish it and turn it into a performing arts center. RIP Uptown.

Speaking of which, there is reduced seating at this and many other AMCs due to the social distancing phenomenon that has occured since the pandemic began. Some AMCs in affected areas where the risk is higher such as in Bergen County are closed. The next few weeks will be quieter than usual due to release date changes due to the virus.

I’ve seen it before in Rockaway dolby where there’s light near the edge of the screen. Also they turn down the lights a bit during the trailers and again after the AMC policy trailer before the Dolby trailer to make sure it’s dark. I’ve seen people use their flashlights to see their seats in the dark which can be annoying for those with phones.
