It was used on Quantum of Solace, which I’ll buy on bluray just to watch the movie the way it was shot.
Ever since the recession began in late 2007, attendance at my local theater has gone up even as traffic at the malls has slowed down and consumers are no longer spending money on dvds….just today, Blockbuster’s stock crashed as it seeked a firm for Chapter 11 restructuring as it faces competition from video on demand and Netflix.
i agree with you, giles.
I agree. 3D may be expensive, but hopefully I’ll see Monsters vs ALiens in 3D at this theater later this month. That movie and also Ice Age 3 were the only trailers that aired before the movie. As for the theater’s website, there’s a new toll free number by the company to access their showtimes… 1-888-AMC-4FUN.
This is very similar to the light brown dots on a 35mm film print that occasionally shows up every few minutes.
saw coraline tonight. decent crowd. good presentation. some of the atm machines did not work, so i used one inside the theaters lobby and got the tix. this theater would have been more crowded if they showed that jonas brothers movie in 3d.
Closing the last of the AMC Rockaway theaters was a bad mistake not only by AMC, but also by Simon, both are which are affected by the recession.
One of my former co-workers from Employment Horizons recently lost his job at the theater because of the economy.
the only new movie this weekend is another street fighter movie, and several oscar winning movies are held over. no dlp.
Later this year, this theater will turn 15. Since then, there have been theater closings, renovations, and openings, the biggest of which is the AMC in Rockaway, the only theater in Morris County to have stadium seating but not true HD projection, which Clearview already has in three of its locations in Morris County plus one in Warren County except Madison and Chester.
Recently, Clearview has upgraded nearly all of its theaters with digital projection, plush seating, digital sound, and of course raising prices just like AMC. AMC, meanwhile, uses its preshow projection to show met operas (just like some of the Clearviews), ncm fathom programming, and of course, the first look program.
status should be closed.
I’ve been to another theater with CO decals, the one in Menlo Park Mall in Edison, complete with Cineplex Odeon logo outside and Loews Cineplex decals near the auditorium with Rear Window/DVS. That theater should close down since there’s other theaters in Edison. I hope they make a better Bridgewater Commons theater with stadium seating and digital projection to compete against the Reading Cinema in Manville.
btw, advance tickets for watchmen are now up.
advance tickets are available for watchmen right now.
The Plaza 8 for some time has been playing a mix of Indian fare.
showtimes are now up..still no digital projection and two lackluster releases.
I think so.
I’m on the AMC website, and there are no advance tickets for this coming friday; usually on Tuesday night or Wednesday advance tickets are on sale…see the comment i made nearly a year ago. Are they working hard on installing digital projection for all screens?
It’s my speculation. This theater is still the only theater left in Ridgefield Park after the closing of the Rialto late last year. The businesses surrounding the theater have changed, but the place hasn’t.
Here’s a photo of the front of the theater…
With the closing of the Plaza 8 and soon the Meadow Six….this theater will close down once Xanadu opens.
After the Meadow six closes, then the only Loews-style theaters that will be left are the ones without stadium seating across the hudson, especially the Lincoln Square w/ IMAX, and the ones in East Hanover, Wayne, and Ridgefield Park.
Those preshow projectors also do most of the NCM Fathom showings, which I don’t hear that much from people who go to this theater for. One reason is that they’re more expensive than regular movie tickets, although moviegoers save a lot of money when they go see a Met opera at the movies vs going to a sold out show at the opera house in NYC. Save the money and catch one on PBS for free in HD. One other thing that this theater lacks showing is sporting events, which Clearview has experimented in select theaters, as well as a large party room, which the AMC in Clifton Commons has. At least the electronic snack signs are pretty cool.
On the Clearview website, the company incorrectly says that the cinema is located in Morris Plains, not Parsippany, although the theater is near the border between that borough and the town.
