AMC recently introduced an on demand streaming service where stubs members can buy or rent movies online. I’m very happy that AMC is going in the right direction while attendance at its theaters remain flat. Sadly the football games are not showing at any of its NYC area theatres including this one.

Hopefully they increase more showtimes as the holidays approach, with Frozen II and Star Wars 9 and Jumanji 3 on the horizon. AMC knew that attendance would go down so they cut back on the hours of the showtimes and operating hours of its theatres as the box office has been still struggling vs last year.

During the showing of Gemini man in dolby when I came in a bit late for only a few minutes the image was cropped so I told amc on Facebook to fix the issue which they did although the black bars on the sides were a little tinted. The sound mix was good and the image very bright.

The only high frame rate 3d showing this weekend is the reald 3d screening and most showings are 2k 3d, not the 4k hfr 120fps that Lee intended it to be. Most showings will do only 4k hfr 60fps, and that includes Dolby 3d, imax laser 3d, in several locations. Watching a movie like it is similar to putting on the soap opera effect on my tv while watching a movie and that could be sickening for some people. I’m glad that the dolby is showing Gemini Man in 4k 24fps. Addams Family is being shown in 2d. Next week Malificent comes out in 3d and regular while Zombieland comes out in dolby.

1997 was when they expanded to 14.

I tried to watch that movie but it was so boring. Life of pi never had that issue. It’s as if ang Lee was trying to be like Peter Jackson when he made the hobbit trilogy which is no LOTR.

My location will have GM in 2d Dolby 4k at 24fps with laser and atmos and the picture will fill the screen like joker which was amazing in dolby.

Saw joker in dolby. It filled up the screen. Audio was great and the picture and seats were great. Too bad it’s only out for a week before Gemini man comes out. Sadly it’s not in high frame rate 3d but it’s good news.

Joaquin Phoenix this weekend made an appearance at the Imax theater during a showing of Joker and everyone was happy. Did anyone go through security just to see this movie?

I’m happy that this theater will still show movies in 35mm as long as Kodak and others continue to print film.

Went to see abominable in the 3d theater and enjoyed the film even though the sound was a bit low and the 3d a bit dark.

how is it? Can’t wait for rockaway to have it as well as clifton commons as most of the small imax projectors are being replaced with the laser PQ and AQ as well as seating to be on par with Dolby and other premium formats. How is the pricing compared to the previous imax in paramus?

advance tickets now on sale for Joker in regular and dolby. Saw ad astra on friday and the picture and sound were great. Rambo on saturday had no masking so i could see the subtitles; the sound mix was good yet the picture was a bit dark.

How’s the audio?

Saw hustlers in auditorium 3 and noticed minor masking issues on the top side of the screen. Audio was great and presentation was decent. Luckily I was able to get my ticket hours after the site was down. The death of moviepass has spurred increased interest in a list and other services.
