Here’s a link to a story about the shopping area…
Maybe one day when I’m at New York City if a Yankee game gets rained out, I would ask my dad to take a trip to this theater that he’s been to a couple of times (he saw Apocalypse Now at this theater).
An article in today’s Record incorrectly mentions this theater as being on Route 17….it’s in the business section and this theater is an example of how bad the economy is with lots of empty real estate. BTW, has anyone bought interest in the building?
Most recently, AMC restated its earnings, with three previous quarters of losing money. Hopefully when the economy improves, AMC will make money and not waste it on mini-IMAX theaters.
There’s an article in today’s Record that incorrectly states this theater as an example of abandoned real estate, since it wasn’t abandoned but demolished.
Once the economy improves, then it will happen. In the meantime, I’ll be probably sitting all the way back to the wall and see the movie as sharply as possible.
But according to an email I got from AMC as part of being a Moviewatcher, it will be in 3D on one screen and 2D on another. Maybe they’ll install it in house 8 just in time for that movie next week, and keep it playing for a few weeks until Ice Age 3 comes out. If it does well, then the next major 3D movie this summer, Final Destination 3D, will have to play in a 2D version.
The Barco models are what Clearview uses for its 2k presentations, although they might upgrade in the near future to 4k models.
So far, Up won’t be in 3D next weekend…
Hope this theater will be one of the first to get 4k projection!!!!
The name “Primus” should be removed from the theater name as it makes no sense. It should be called Route 4 Tenplex.
According to what I read online…
the installation of the digital projection will begin at the end of this summer, just in time for the upcoming Avatar movie, and will slowly affect all theaters by 2012 or later.
Too bad they didn’t mentioned who played Darth Vader….the old Route 4 Tenplex was the Yankee Stadium of modern day movie theaters in North Jersey.
Hey Jezebel, how’s work going on the digital projection? I hope it’s installed for the upcoming Up movie in 3-D, although advance tickets say it’s not in 3d. If that’s true, then I’ll wait until Ice Age 3-D comes out.
Just came from from a 3:45 showing of Star Trek, and while I enjoyed the movie (a big improvement from other Trek movies and sci-fi prequels), there were a few issues before and during the movie. During the last few minutes of the pre-show, the sprint commercial that warns moviegoers to turn off their cell phones was interrupted near the end of the movie and was replaced by a blank screen while the same commercial aired, followed by the AMC Emergency Exit trailer and then an ad for Glenn Beck Live. Then music started playing (Movietunes) and the film started to begin. During the movie, the first 20 minutes of it, late into it, a fire alarm blared. At first I thought it was one of those new sound effects done by Ben Burtt for the new movie, but it turned out to be a siren. THankfully someone noticed it and walked to the manager’s office to turn it off, which thankfully was over as the movie got into gear. The projection was a bit blurry, especially during close-ups of the crew and when the movie was in motion. The surround sound was top-notch, and the crowd behaved well and enjoyed the movie. Nearly packed house, I say. This movie will live long and prosper in this house!!!
This theater is notable for being mentioned in a blog post by a Hollywood comedian who complained about seeing “Star Trek” in the IMAX digital screen, which was added to this theater as part of the AMC-IMAX deal.
Seat count should be 3300.
I’m planning on going to see Angels and Demons this coming Saturday…hopefully it will be better than that DaVinci Code flick!!!
I think the Smithsonian IMAX will show Night at the Museum 2 since that takes place in the Smithsonian.
I’ve been to the Loews in Wayne and Secaucus before, and you work pretty hard.
I haven’t been to a Regal in like a few years, the only ones I’ve been to are the Regal Aviation 7 in Queensbury and the Hadley Center 16 plex, both of which pale in comparison with AMC, which is rapidly advancing with new technology and a CEO from a famous coffee company. AMC should be number one in a few years.
Here’s an interesting article by a celebrity who shelled out $5 to see Star Trek in IMAX and was dissapointed with the small IMAX screen…
The lfexaminer website still lists AMC as getting an IMAX more than a month from now in the Rockaway theater. How is progress going on that? I can’t wait to see Transformers 2 and Harry Potter 6 in IMAX!!! Too bad Star Trek and Night at the Museum won’t be playing in that format!!!
Seems that AMC is going for the all digital route and installing all screens with the 4k technology that has been used on recent summer movies.
