HowardBHaas commented about AMC Uptown 1 on Nov 11, 2021 at 11:36 am

Since for years, I’ve sat in the Uptown balcony, it would be disappointing if the balcony became a 2nd screen. It the entire theater was divided left to right, that would be even worse. New seats would be fine. I doubt Landmark anywhere has any Dolby Vision or Dolby Atmos surround sound, but that would be great, too. If Landmark could get the curtain used again, that would also be nice.

Brandon, I was on the block today but did not take a photo of this or the Roxy. The facade of the closed Roxy, which is for sale, looked the same as my last photo in August which I have now added to the Roxy’s page.

Lionel, yes, “Last Night in Soho” was very exciting and very much set in London. It is worthwhile.

The new Edgar Wright horror movie, “Last Night in Soho” shows a theater with “Thunderball” as part of 1960s swinging London. This theater, the Haymarket was used for that shot! Not sure if any interiors of the Haymarket were used in the film, did not see the lobby or any views of the auditorium as such, though there was some red backgrounds that might have been used in the film in interior scenes.

488 seats. One of the 2 largest auditoriums when built, the other is now the RPX auditorium. Not counting the Imax which is different.

I sit in the balcony & have not had a problem with subtitles. Is there news about the Cinema I & II? for those interested, the Paris has now begun showing “Waiting for the Forty Year Version” in 35mm and a series of 31 classic films that premiered at the Paris!

Yes, I think Call Me By Your Name was the longest running movie in recent years.

In 2021, the building was redone to be open office spaces. Philadelphia artist Hannah Taylor painted on the facade a mural of silent film actress Theda Bara as a nod to the building’s movie theater heritage.

The downtown Warner still exists, but as a jewelry mart so there’s no Last Remaining Seats movies there. The United Artists is the other downtown palace that ought to be included in your fine short list of ones to experience a movie at a special event. And El Capitan should be added to your short list that includes the Chinese and Westwood Fox for movies.

JodarMovieFan, yes, I read online a few months ago about building replacement! Please post photo. Hard to tell online where entry was. Was a nice multiplex.

My guess is that Netflix will be delighted to “showcase” their films in a prestige cinema, not just for awards season, but all year long. The Paris can function as an ad for them, a place everybody can see their films on the big screen. So making a profit from this theater, or their operation of Hollywood’s Egyptian Theatre, may not be the primary motive. Showcasing their films in their own theaters in the nation’s 2 largest markets will help ensure the overall profit of the company, which of course is a concern.

we are excited to announce our first filmmaker event, a day devoted to Ramin Bahrani, the acclaimed Iranian-American New York City-based writer/director, who is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, for The White Tiger. We will kick things off on Saturday, April 10, at noon with a 35mm screening of Martin Scorsese’s GoodFellas, selected by Bahrani as a key influence on his work (see below). GoodFellas will be introduced by film critic Glenn Kenny, author of the new book Made Men: The Story of GoodFellas. A book signing with Kenny follows the screening. At 3:30 p.m., we will show The White Tiger, followed by a conversation with Bahrani. The White Tiger follows the epic journey of a poor Indian driver who must use his wit and cunning to break free from servitude to his rich masters and rise to the top of the heap, and is based on Aravind Adiga’s New York Times best seller & Man Booker Prize-winning novel. And at 7:15 p.m., we will show Bahrani’s 2007 critically acclaimed Chop Shop, a deeply engrossing film set in a ramshackle neighborhood amidst the auto repair shops of Willets Point, Queens.
