While the rest of the mall is being renovated (mostly the mall building itself and not Rockaway Town Plaza where this theater is) this theater needs some renovation work besides the Dolby theater and the soon to be laser digital imax theater. I enjoy sitting all the way in the back to get a good view even though sometimes people walk in front of the screen sometimes.
a few weeks ago someone saved a choking victim’s life at this theater.
went to see both Green Book and Widows. For Widows, there was no masking resulting in some credits being cut off for several trailers, while for Green Book, which was shot in a 2.00 aspect ratio, there was masking and the picture was perfect. Unlike watching movies on regular size HDTVS, the projectors at AMC have off color balance and can be a bit blurry at times yet the sound can be very loud sometimes, causing bleeding effects into other screens. I have yet to see a movie in Dolby as I’ve seen a movie in IMAX digital 2k, Imax 70mm, imax digital 3d, reald 3d, 2k, and 4k. Today was the last day I was on the AMC Premiere list as I went back to regular. The tickets were 6.49 so it went up a bit.
Yes. Second place has to be the lincoln square imax, which is an hour away from where i live. I was watching about 45 minutes of Teen Titans Go to the movies, and there’s a cartoon version of the chinese as the superheroes go to the premiere of a superhero movie. It’s also featured in Scooby Doo goes to Hollywood as well.
If you own a Tesla car and drive it to the theater, there are tesla charging lots near the theater that were built awhile ago so u can recharge your car!!! Now only if they add reserved seating to all screens and replace the 12 year old seats with recliners for the imax and 14 screens that have the Loews seats. There’s also a Predator poster from back in October that should be replaced. Bathrooms need to be cleaned more often.
Too much money!!!
This building is featured in the ps4 spiderman video game that came out a few months ago.
Is this theatre popular with American and Canadian audiences who visit London while on business or pleasure?
Most of the seats in each complex were sloped seating, unlike the stadium seating that its successor has.
Speaking of trailers, some trailers are shown usually exclusively in theatres before making their online debut as was the case with Beale Street which i saw with Creed II before it debuted online a few days later.
I have seen two movies in the past two days. Bohemian Rhapsody which played in the smaller screen with soso projection but excellent sound, and Creed II which played in one of the big screens, also with soso projection but awesome sound. The trailers keep getting longer, since AMC put in the A-List thing in the policy trailers before the movie. I like sitting all the way in the back since i get the whole picture. I can still hear the vibrations and sound bleeding from the Dolby and Imax screens, which are the loudest and brightest of all the screens. Tried out the Coke Freestyle machine with a free drink coupon from Coke and used a free coupon for a ticket and the coke zero lime is tasty but sugary near the end. They need to take care of the parking lot near the theater as snow melt can make driving through it dangerous!!
Looks like reserved seating is coming to other auditioriums in the near future.
During the Black Friday shooting at the mall this building was used as a shelter for the evacuees before it closed until the day after it happened.
RIP Nicholas Roeg, the director of the third movie that played at this theater.
if you want the full experience at home, get the 4k bluray. From what i heard, both the bluray and the 4k bluray have the sound mix sourced from 70mm six track elements. The 2001 special edition DVD’s sound mix was remixed for the release.
With the closing of the edgewater theater, there are no more NA/Showcase cinemas left in North Jersey.
With the closing of the edgewater cinemas last week, this is the only National Amusements/Showcase theater to be left in the garden state.
Yes. The Hazlet cinemas is the only one i can think of that became a rave cinema and now a Cinemark with recliners. The Amboy cinemas still remains but it’s barren, and the All Jersey cinemas is gone in Newark.
It was at this theater where i went all the way on my own to see “A Bugs Life” where I saw the teaser for “The Phantom Menace” a week after the trailer made its debut in limited release. I already saw the trailer on tv so i knew what the crowd had in mind before the movie began. Little did I know was that Lucasfilm would soon be part of Disney.
Happy 20th anniversary to this theater this month!!! It was here during showings of Meet Joe Black that the teaser for “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” was shown before and after the movie, causing a media frenzy which resulted in a so-so movie that has become a defining moment for a young generation whose older siblings grew up with Star Wars and were weaned on the Special editions a year ago. It was during one of the showings that a man used a video camera, made a bootleg copy of the trailer with a packed crowd, and posted it on the internet way before Youtube existed. Soon after, the trailer made its debut on TV shows and on Apple’s website, where the second trailer broke records online. The rest is cinematic history.
out of all those movies i saw land before time in the theater since i was a bit too young to see the other ones (I would see them later on TV and on VHS and DVD and bluray). Flash forward years later and there would be two sequels to the Naked Gun, too many Land Before Times made for video sequels, and a Child’s Play reboot following several sequels to the film.
it sure lived a long life. Built as part of the megaplex boom.
How about the dolby auditorium?
When did a third screen get added? Any ad?
