et first played here weeks before the meadow six opened and played that movie after the quad closed.
when did this theater open?
happy belated 25th amc loews meadow six! it was 25 years ago yesterday that the theater opened. has anything changed since then? hopefully it will not close when the muvico xanadu 26 opens next year just in time for indy to jump ship from secaucus to east rutherford!
thanks, mike d. Even though people still argue about this theater, I’m glad that the movies came back to Rockaway after a five year absence in a big and successful way. It completed a missing link in the mall, back when the only real hot spot in the mall was the FYE store and the Food Court. Too bad ticket prices at the new theater are more expensive than that of the old theater, which is the same at all AMC theaters. Currently, the company is making profits while withdrawing a comeback in the stock market. Hopefully with AMC Rockaway, Garden State 16, and newer theaters, they should recoup their debt and be in the black!!!
Good thing, since the closest theater to show 3D movies is either Parsippany or Succasunna, both with DLP systems that Rockaway doesn’t have!!!
I agree with you AlAlvarez. For me, the two best movie theaters in the Rockaway area where I live is the AMC in Rockaway, and the Clearview in Parsippany, both with great sound and picture and decent pricing.
Michael D, what is the #1 16-screener owned by AMC? I guess it’s the new movie theater in Paramus. One reason why the Rockaway location is number 2 is because of its easy to spot location near busy Route 80. It’s the only movie theater near that highway that is visible for commuters to see. Too bad the AMC in Rockaway doesn’t show NCM Fathom showings like the Met operas or revivals of old horror and 80’s movies in the digital format, something the Rockaway needs to improve to attract a huge crowd. Probably the two big theaters should be using the Real D projectors. BTW, how is security at the theater compared to the old one? So far, no reports of crime or vandalism outside the theater according to what I read in the Daily Record.
this is a good thing…kudos to AMC for bringing the movies back to rockaway.
thanks for the info. BTW, nice photos. Maybe in the future when the GSP 16 closes to make room for a 100-plex you can take pictures of that one!!!
photoman1001, some of the theaters, such as four and five, have stadium seating. Were they the first stadium seating theaters to be formed out of the old one-screen theater to be located in Bergen County? BTW, you missed out on some theaters, such as #6.
good for the shoppers at Garden State Plaza who want to see a movie at the new movie theater in Paramus on days when the mall is closed; plenty of parking, indeed.
That’s a good thing. The only changes that were made to this theater was the addition of more theaters, which made the Loews theater the first megaplex in Passaic County long before Clifton Commons came along. That happened sometime around thanksgiving of 1996, when I went to see “Jingle All the Way” in one of the 14 screens, which at the time was the top grossing theater in that area. Even though Clifton Commons has drawn people away from this aging theater with its stadium seating and THX sound, the AMC Loews Wayne is still a decent theater to check out a movie, and is located near a major shopping mall despite being flood prone.
Just went to this theater for the first time in more than a year, and this theater needs more bathrooms. When compared to the monstrosity that is Rockaway, I went to a showing at theater 14, which is a long way from the bathrooms. Look like they’re repainting and renovating the restrooms since I last went there, and ticket prices have jumped up a bit even though they are still cheaper than Rockaway. Too bad this theater doesn’t have the DLP that the other two popular Clearviews (Succasunna and Parsippany) have. The movie I saw, Pirates 3, was a decent presentation with good sound and good projection.
And it will premiere in digital projection, I guess.
thanks for the info! Out of all the summer movies, which movie did extremely well so far at this theater?
I asked a question via Yahoo answers about why the site was down, and no answer came up. I then went there again, and it was back online!!! Today I read why the site was down…thankfully you’re now much improved and I don’t wait minutes for a page to load…you’re more popular than CInematour!!!
looks stale compared to the Empire 25 marquee!!!
Here’s a video of the recent flooding around the wayne theater…
thankfully the theater reopened after the waters receded!!!
it’s the back of the theater.
nice photo; btw, anything new coming to the rockaway theater since opening late last year? It’s still a great place to see a movie, yet the management is a bit slow and the projection is not as sharp as a loews or a clearview theater.
was it the first movie theater in Newark, NJ? The only movie theater that remains in this area is the former Loews in Newark, which is now called Newark Screens on Springfield.
so far, it’s not open, what’s holding it up? The theater is opening in the same building where Panera is now, along with a Rita’s that will open soon.
Just went to this theater again for the first time in a few years to see “Waitress” at screen 12, the smallest of the theaters. Decent presentation despite the fact that this theater is near a major road construction project that is costing $15 million in taxes, all due to the flood. Thankfully, the theater wasn’t hit hard by the noreaster.
