[ # ] Quentin Tarantino claims Disney kicked him out of the Cinerama Dome
December 17th, 2015 under Howard Stern, Inglourious Basterds, Star Wars


There are many great movie theaters in Los Angeles, but one of the prime ones is the Cinerama Dome. It is a theater with a larger screen wrapped around the rounded theater’s front wall. Because of that you feel like you are almost in the film as you watch it. So of course everyone wants their movie screened there, but only one film can be shown there at a time.
As soon as Quentin Tarantino knew the release date for The Hateful Eight, he asked Arclight Cinemas if he could show it there. He says they agreed to start showing it there on Christmas when the movie comes out.
Well tonight, the most anticipated movie is coming out and Star Wars has that particular theater booked. According to Tarantino for two weeks, which means it would still be there next week.
The director told Howard Stern that Arclight told him on Tuesday that Disney said that they want to keep the Cinerama Dome for the whole holiday season. Taratino goes on to claim that Disney said that if the movie chain didn’t keep Stars Wars in that theater, they would pull the movie from all of the Arclight Cinemas.
So here’s the problem with QT’s story, he says that Disney had it booked for two weeks. Well the release date for this movie has been known for over a year, so we know that would get them through New Year’s if comes out on the 18th aka tonight. So did the Arclight double book the Cinerama Dome? Is QT doing a woe is me? Is the Archlight lying to him because they don’t want to tell him the truth that they would rather have the bigger budget film in that theater that holds over 800 people instead of his smaller independent movie that has an intermission? Which movie is more likely to sell out every performance? Star Wars or The Hateful Eight? Let’s be real, even in LA it will be Star Wars! Plus, which movie are people more likely to see on Christmas? Families will want to take their kids there because it is the 2nd best place to the see the blockbuster in Los Angeles and it’s cheaper than the first place which is the El Capitan. So I don’t buy his story and I side with Disney and Arclight on this one. I mean if I were going to see Star Wars, I would want to see it there because it truly is a great way to experience for a film like this one.
Is your force with Disney or with Quentin?
