moviebuff82 commented about AMC Rockaway Inner 6/Outer 6 on Sep 2, 2008 at 10:34 pm

Among the movies that played at this theater was a remake of The Fury, which I found in the old showtimes section on Google News' news archive. This is from the New York times, which you have to pay money to check out which movies were playing at the theaters. Under the newspapers, the theater was just simply ROCKAWAY SIX, then ROCKAWAY TWELVE underneath the AMC name. Back then, two phone numbers would separate the theaters. When the inner six closed, so did the phone number, leaving the outer six with the phoneline for showtimes and questions. This practice would go on to its successor, which is twice the size of the outer six.

this could be one of fourclose theaters where the Jets could go see a flick (the others are Clearviews in Morristown and Madison as well as the indie cinema in Chatham) if they’re not playing football. Also I read an online review of Indy 4 on Yelp and said that almost all the movie was not focused. Seems that AMC is not doing a good job of keeping those Loews theaters well kept as the AMC ones.

status should be changed to open since it’s open even though showtimes aren’t listed in the daily record (they only show times for the Sparta theater).

starting this weekend, Mamma Mia will be shown with on-screen lyrics that the audience can sing to, similiar to what Sing a Long Sound of Music did a few years ago. Other new releases include Bottle Shock, Bangkok Dangerous, among notable releases. Someday AMC needs to catch up on what Clearview is doing and that is digital projection for regular movies rather than NCM Fathom stuff. At least the new IMAX system will be ready for next year, when one of its screens will be turned into a mini-IMAX for the next summer season.

moviebuff82 commented about Disney's animated "Sleeping Beauty" reawakens at El Capitan on Aug 27, 2008 at 7:53 pm

Not to mention Bluray, since the Bluray will be packed with special features. That bluray will also have the 7.1 surround and HD video of the 70mm print. I only saw it once on VHS in pan-and-scan; can’t wait to see the widescreen version. Too bad Disney doesn’t make animated cartoons like they used to anymore, save for a short or two (the recent one being a Goofy short played before National Treasure 2).

That sucks. According to the THX website, it still supports this theater after the AMC takeover. Which screen is DLP equipped? I know there’s only one out of 16 that is according to various showtime sites.

Sorry for the unclickable link….here it is again…

BTW, I went to see “Pineapple Express” with my aunt in theater #2. Sound was great and projection was decent, quite a few people during a 11:35 showing. While at the box office, the cashier gave me a free ticket for that movie while my aunt paid for her own ticket. This is because I used my moviewatcher card. The only movie playing here that’s on more than one screen is Tropic Thunder. Nothing much has changed since I last visited here except that they now sell UNO pizza here finally!!!

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Aug 21, 2008 at 8:07 pm

You mean An Xmas Carol, KingBiscuits. That one will do well, probably replacing Polar Express as the next Imax annual holiday movie during Xmas. It will be released November of next year. Next year will also bring the second Night at the Museum movie, this one taking place at the Smithsonian, which in real life has its own Imax theater, which will probably not play that movie since it’s catered towards educational films.

moviebuff82 commented about 'Delirium' with a little popcorn? on Aug 21, 2008 at 8:04 pm

I saw an ad for this movie at Mansfield in NJ. Given the respect that Cirque has had, this show might do as well but not as great as the Met series.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Aug 19, 2008 at 11:21 pm

This theater was one of a few in America to show the original Star Wars and its sequels, which were rereleased so many times at this theater, and the prequels, of which Episode I was digitally shown (despite being shot on 35mm).

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Garden State 16 on Aug 19, 2008 at 11:18 pm

This past weekend, Star Wars returned to Paramus, but this time in a year-old theater. It’s being shown in plain old 35mm and Dolby EX on one screen, and this one will fare worse than all six star wars movies at the old tenplex, not to mention the special editions and re-releases that made the franchise what it is today. Two 3-D movies are playing at this theater, the hit “Journey” and the flop “Fly Me To The Moon”.

Next year marks the 10th anniversary of the first 16 plex in north jersey. The last time I went there was nearly seven years ago. Since then, AMC took over the theater, added digital projection to one of its screens, and kept some of the traits from the General Cinema era. Do they still serve coffee at this theater? MY dad used to drink Starbucks at this theater!!!

moviebuff82 commented about Allwood Cinemas 6 on Aug 17, 2008 at 1:34 am

Inside the theater, there used to be a fireplace to evoke that neighborhood feel; is that still there? There is only one box office stand compared with other Clearviews I’ve been to, and the entrance between the front and the box office has posters for future movies. The lobby has a decent candy stand, along with a few arcade machines and poster stands. Out of all the screens in this theater, I like the two with digital sound. Theater 1 has DTS, while theater 2 has Dolby Digital. The other screens have Dolby Stereo. This theater, if it doesn’t close, will become the oldest theater in Clifton.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Aug 17, 2008 at 1:29 am

BTW, when is 24 Hr Fitness scheduled to open? There was an online petition to save the tenplex but sadly it’s now going to be transformed into more retail for Paramus, which is always changing but has very few open space. There are no signs of Native American life around Paramus, hence there were few back when the theater opened in the 60’s.

The recent delay of the new Harry Potter movie could mean good news for the Rockaway AMC theater, as the IMAX screen will open just in time for a few major releases, such as Transformers 2, Night at the Museum 2, but not Watchmen. With the Dark Knight still making moolah, may a re-release come soon? I doubt it, with the increased revenue from dvd and blu-ray sales. BTW, has anything improved at the AMC in Rockaway besides the NCM Fathom thing?

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Aug 17, 2008 at 1:20 am

When I first went to this theater, I didn’t eat any food during the movies that I attended, since it costs more than other theaters in my area. Very rare that the concession stand at the theater was closed for violations. FYI, the new Harry Potter won’t come out until next summer, which leaves the new Madagascar movie as a box office hopeful. Another movie coming out in IMAX soon will be Eagle Eye, starring Shia Lebouf.

On my way to seeing “Tropic Thunder” in the same auditorium as “The Dark Knight” (the one with the right surround channel not working still), the men’s bathroom was messy. The staff didn’t respond to cleaning up a pile of popcorn near the trash can, and when I entered, some kid accidentally opened the door for me just I was ready to get in!!! At least they still have the party room which Rockaway lacks even though they don’t have the snack stand on the right wing of the theater. The new Cirque de Soleil show Delirium will be playing at this theater next week; tix are still available.

FYI, the digital projection used for the NCM Fathom is the same equipment used for the digital preshow, which looks blurrier than what Screenvision does for Cablevision’s Clearview chain. Among the summer movies that will be shown on the new IMAX screen in Rockaway will be the next Transformers movie, which promises more robots, explosions, and romance. BTW, Dark Knight is still playing on four screens and will still play for a month or two and become the longest running movie in this theater before hitting the DVD store just in time for the holidays.

moviebuff82 commented about Where have all the drive-ins gone? on Aug 4, 2008 at 8:31 pm

The closest drive-in near me is the Warwick Drive-In, one of only a few in the New York Metro Area. As for the movie showing on the screen in the photo, that’s the opening logo for the new Indy movie.

moviebuff82 commented about Cinepolis Mansfield on Aug 3, 2008 at 7:13 pm

Unlike the Succasunna theater, this theater’s projection is powered by HQV processing by Silicon Optix; the logo appears after the “Feature Presentation” card, and there’s no Technicolor Digital logo after the Clearview welcome snipe. At the Garden State theater, there was no DLP trailer before Ratatouille.

i went to see mummy 3 in theater #8 (4:15, dlp), masking was great, although there was a moire effect and a little speck on the upper right corner of the screen that was minor. Sound was great and clear. Seems that in the near future Clearview will have its first all-digital multiplex. Check this link out…http://tinyurl.com/67te6s
So far, I prefer this theater over Rockaway since it’s closer to my dad’s home and that it’s less crowded than the bigger theater.
