The Movie tavern
Arlington, TX, USA
The entrance to the ex AMC Green Oaks 8, now Movie Tavern 8.
The lobby features normal concession items as well as an expanded dinner
menu, including pizza and of course...beer.

Entrance to the auditoriums.
One of the auditoriums. Every other row of seating has been converted
to bars to give patrons a place to put their food and propping up your
feet is encouraged.
The projection room.
This was not the original equipment, as AMC removed it. However
this is very similar to what AMC was buying back in the 80s.
Tim Dulan of Big Sky Industries handled the installation of this booth
The buildup area and film can storage.
Every screen uses the same equipment. Century 35/70 JJ projectors,
ORC lamphouse and platters, Dolby CP55 processors.
(We can't figure out why so much of the booth budget was spent on 35/70
projectors. None of the auditoriums have MPUs and there is not a
dts system in the building, hence no way to run 70mm prints of any kind.)
An ORC platter doing its infamous "stop and then overspin" payout.
The middle platter was removed as it does not function properly.

auditorium is equipped with Dolby A surround.
