This is a quick follow-up on last week’s Samsung Onyx theatrical discussion.

So far, after confirming that the LA theater chain mentioned by ChatGPT has closed, I found that the Culver Theater in Culver City has an Onyx screen—for all you Hollywood peeps. Richmond, Texas, has the only other active screen (that I can find) in the United States, and a new screen opened in Germany.

If you’re in one of those markets – get out there and let us know what you think?

Interesting tidbit: After a four-year hiatus on anything Onyx-related, the SamMobile website announced a German screen in January 2024. Then, in April, they announced a partnership with Amazon Studios, 424 Post, and Harbor for a mastering suite (scroll down for that item in Craft).

Last week, I speculated that the release of Inside Out 2 was Onyx’s last gasp. Maybe I got it precisely backward. Maybe we’re looking at the re-launch of that format?

I guess we’ll stay tuned and see how it plays out.

In the meantime, if you want to discuss this further, the comment thread from last week’s Newsletter is a good place to start.

Happy Grading!

I’ll see you next week!
