half of the theater now has recliners, with the other half being renovated for next month.

This theater also borrowed the parking lot design from others like Loews in Wayne and in Secaucus.

Mountainside also borrowed the design too.

How are those big glass vaulted ceilings holding up over the years? Do they ever leak when it rains? Loews took this design and ran with it all throughout the nineties all over the country.

At the time of its opening in 1993, it was the first and only movie theater in East Hanover, and the first Loews/Sony theater since the closure of the Loews Troy Hills in the early 90s. It was also one of the first Loews in NJ to share the Star Theatres design with others.

Theater is expected to be fully renovated by April or May according to a friend of mine who last went there.

This opened on December 10th, 1993. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

It used to be Sony Theaters when it opened in late 1993. It became Loews in 1997 a year before the Loews Cineplex merger. In 2006 it became AMC Loews and starting this year it will be just AMC East Hanover as AMC is rebranding its theaters into three: AMC, AMC Classic, and AMC Dine-In.

How is the description for this from before AMC Lowes merger? It happened shortly after this theatre opened.

status should be changed to renovating since half of the screens are boarded up for renovation.

Plus they’re owned by China yet AMC continues to improve its a-game. The app and website are horrible plus their rewards program isn’t as good as Moviewatcher or even General Cinema Credits. They should also redo AMC in Wayne.

Finally. This theater was in truly awful shape last I visited from poor customer service to an awful smell in the auditorium and projection problems. Scary AMC is going to be the number one theater operator in the world when they can’t even get the basics right.

This is great news!!!

This theater is finally getting updated! Coca-Cola Freestyle machines are coming within the next few months and the theater will be fully renovated and kitted out with recliner seats early next year!

Most of the moviegoers who frequent this theater go here for the independent movies that Morristown and Rockaway wouldn’t even show.

Sad news…Paul the ticket taker who started out working at this place passed away this morning unexpectedly. Thoughts and prayers with his family.

moviebuff82 on January 17, 2015 at 2:19 pm

I agree. Not as packed as morristown or even Rockaway.

amcbayplaza13 on January 16, 2015 at 4:18 pm

I doubt this theater will most likely be renovate

Not too far from the theater Route 10 EB is closed before the Passaic River bridge between River Road and Okner Pkwy making travel to the theater a chore for those who live around that area.

The front of the theater has the AMC logo on the marquee, while the movie marquee sign near route 10 says AMC in red and theaters in gold. I wonder if they’ll renovate the seats…this theater is in bad shape, kinda like AMC in Wayne.

moviebuff82 on August 6, 2013 at 11:21 am

The parking garage is also being renovated…

moviebuff82 on August 6, 2013 at 11:20 am

Just noticed while driving on route 10 that the loews name is gone….its now amc.

It might have been Dec 17, 1993 – the first film I saw here was The Pelican Brief, potentially opening weekend of the complex.
