It should be set to closed, CT people!!!
this theater, as well as all former loews houses, will not show screenvision ads, just the amc first look that every other AMC theater has. They still use the fandango service, which is more expensive than moviefone/movietickets. Plus the theater has been kind of run down according to reviews I read on consumer sites. It’s time for AMC to put stadium seating and digital projection in this former great theater, the first modern Passaic County multiplex, much the same way that it did with the Monmouth Mall theater, which is expected to get IMAX digital projection.
Checking the recent movie listings, AMC didn’t have advance tickets for Cloverfield; only Clearview has the advantage. Too bad they won’t show the u23d and hanna montana movies….this theater will get a different kind of digital system in the form of an HD version of Imax which will increase business at this theater, which is doing quite well. BTW, when will the IMAX equipment be installed? I can’t wait, probably have to save my AMC gift cards for those flicks!!! I hope 2 see the new batman in that format.
This weekend, National Treasure is still playing in DLP, that is, until Cloverfield comes out. That film was shot on Panavision Genesis cameras, which were the same equipment used to film Superman Returns and Click. Panavision Genesis is the HD version of Panavision and can be transferred to regular film as well as digital projection. The Hannah Montana concert movie will be the next 3d film playing at this theater, but not U23D.
This coming February there will be two 3d movies coming out. THe first is the 3d version of the hanna montana concert and then in a few weeks it will be U2-3D. As of right now, there is no digital film release this weekend.
probably demolished and replaced by the new one.
this coming spring the classics will return, I found it out via the website….recently i went to this theater attending a showing of National Treasure: Book of Secrets in the DLP auditorium, which is in theater #9. The presentation was flawless, although I recommend sitting back for maximum clarity. The projection was provided by Technicolor Digital, which is the same company that will install more clearview cinemas other than this one and parsippany with the same equipment. BTW, are the screens capable of projecting 4k?
too bad blade runner is not playing at this theater. is it weird that this place is showing more of what the plaza 8 shows? and are all 6 screens dolby digital rather than sdds?
since amc took over, have all of the 14 screens' sound systems changed to dolby digital from sdds?
there was a post on the old clifton quad about how this theater does a bad rap about aspect ratios. it wont be long before clearview closes smaller theaters like this one and keep its larger ones open.
since the theater got bought out by amc, new management has replaced the older team. my friend gypsy, who works for mcarp, used to get free movie passes since she used to work for miramax, but not anymore! btw, has amc replaced all 12 screens with dolby digital rather than sdds?
just went to see golden compass in one of the small screens, number 5, this past saturday at 1:30 and during the film’s darker scenes the light from the projection room appeared on the right of the screen. i sat in a seat near the front and the picture was ok.
Today I got a $100 bill from my mom for xmas…enough to buy me a ticket for the show. When it comes to the xmas show, i’d rather be with other people rather than being alone in a big theater.
thankfully this theater wasn’t at a mall where there was a near-fatal stabbing of a shopper by a victim, as local news have been reporting this past week or two. Sadly, an elderly shopper was killed by a passing car near the parking lot of the Macy’s wing. Most of the traffic around the Paramus area on a Sunday have been due to the movies and restaurants in Paramus. Too bad there’s no Fuddrucker’s near the 16-plex. I think this theater is the luxury car of movie theaters in North Jersey and is visited by more moviegoers than Rockaway and Clifton Commons combined. Plus, this theater has more seats and bigger auditoriums plus higher prices.
this weekend marks the return of movies to castleton square with the opening of an all-digital megaplex owned by AMC. Art movies will play there besides commercial fare on all 14 screens.
this weekend marks the return of AMC to Indy with the Castleton Square 14, the first all-digital AMC theater. It’s not listed on this site yet, but someone who knows that place well will post it sometime soon.
don’t forget there was a hi-def version of the christmas show, which aired for only one time this past Sunday night on MSG.
i agree with you peter. Newton will suffer a decline in business next year since the theater’s closed.
yup. It didn’t take 55 years to build it, that’s just slang for the company’s founding in 1910. BTW, what was Century Theaters and how did it get its name? When that theater opened, was it the same size as what used to be a one-screener on Route 4? The garden state theater is much bigger than both combined!!!
this as sales for high def movies are at an all time high, since they deliver better picture and sound quality on par with 70mm film.
u mean qualcomm.
amc in rockaway sounds like a good thing since this will bring more traffic to the mall than usual and attendance will surge and this theater will make more money than its competitors, who have to rely on dlp and sloped seating.
go to amc’s website, mywill. My local theater will get the system sometime by 2008 (rockaway 16).
Wrong story is right. Hopefully digital projection would come to the Mansfield complex, which is one of the three most popular Clearviews in the tri-state area that would benefit from the deal. Other theaters that could benefit include those that have 10 screens or more.
Unfortunately, hopes for an IMAX theater in Paramus will have to go by as the AMC in ROckaway will be the only complex in North Jersey to show the format come summer 2008; the closest theaters are in West Nyack and Lincoln Square; Jersey City only shows Omnimax films.
