Thanks for the comment, SlimShady.

moviebuff82 commented about Cinema Treasures at ShoWest on Mar 31, 2009 at 12:13 pm

Too bad ShoWest is not allowed for the public to attend, although internet junkies like me can follow the developments online and also on the business channel CNBC, which has allowed one reporter to cover the economics of the industry, which is experiencing its best year to date performance ever.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC to upgrade several screens for RealD on Mar 31, 2009 at 9:54 am

Not only that, but AMC is also teaming up with Sony to install most of its screens with the SXRD 4K technology, which will eliminate the need for film by the year 2012 (rollout will begin in the second quarter of 2009).

Come May 24, this theater will turn 85. Any celebration plans going on at the theater?

Monsters vs Aliens did really well at the box office this weekend, with the 3-D version accounting for 56% of the gross. Hopefully they install 3-D in time for Terra Firma, which opens May 1st against the new X-Men movie, and Up, which is the first Pixar movie to be in 3-D.

During the weekday afternoons, Paul Appel tears tickets and directs the moviegoer to the nearest theater. He’s in a wheelchair and got his training from previous experience at the AMC in East Hanover through Employment Horizons, a non-profit employment agency that helps people with disabilities. He does a good job.

This coming Thursday, April 2, “Fast and Furious” will have an advanced screening for BP North America employees who work at the nearby Wayne office. BP’s Castrol product is featured in all four Fast and Furious movies, which have been played at this theater for a select number of people who wanted to go see this popular franchise. My stepmom is not going since she is busy doing work at the office.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 on Mar 27, 2009 at 12:50 pm

Imax 3D didn’t start off in the Lincoln Square. It started out in Canada in 1986 with a film called “Transitions”. Back then, the only IMAX screen in town was the NatureMax theater in the American Museum of National History, which opened four years before that in 1982 and is still open.

Is this theater the busiest of all the 16 screen AMC theaters in North Jersey? I think so, since Clifton’s not far behind and Rockaway is in third.

As a result, he transferred to that other AMC theater in Morris County, the rockaway location, and works there occasionally on weekends. His name is Paul Appel and lives in Rockaway.

To be determined. The same could be said of the AMC in Kips Bay, NYC.

One reason why is that RealD is cheap compared with IMAX Digital. As more and more 3d movies come out, newer theaters will have access to 3d projectors that they can use for 2d movies as well, as is the case with Clearview and other chains.

The sole transfer from which thousands of copies get transferred to theaters will also be used for home entertainment use, which is cost effective to every studio in the near future.

moviebuff82 commented about Bank Of America subsidizing consumers to see Hollywood film on Mar 26, 2009 at 12:12 pm

This is a good deal for those who want to see a 3d version of a family movie at no cost. In other 3d news, AMC has teamed up with RealD to install 1,500 of its screens with the technology (one for every theater).

I read that too. Transformers 2 will be the first movie to be shown, followed by the second-to-last Harry Potter movie.

I read from an earlier post that Theater 8 would get digital projection in the near future. All screens for Monsters vs Aliens will be 35mm at the AMC in Rockaway. I got an email from Clearview Cinemas with their newsletter and a handful of their cinemas will show the movie in digital 3-D. The AMC in Clifton Commons as well as Garden State Plaza will show the movie in 3-D, I know.

Looks like Monsters vs Aliens will be playing on mostly non-digital 3-d screens. That stinks.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Rockaway Inner 6/Outer 6 on Mar 24, 2009 at 12:54 pm

thanks for the photo links, greg. Which theater was better, the old Rockaway 12 or the new Rockaway 16? I think the newer one was great and that moviegoers would just have one choice to go see a movie rather than go in or out of the mall to see it.
