So far, no word on when my local theater will have RealD equipped. I would love to see the new Up movie in 3D!!!
I disagree with you Bill. Episode III was the best, since it tied the loose ends between the first trilogy and the classic trilogy by introducing Darth Vader’s birth. BTW, Darth Vader will return to the big screen as a cameo in the upcoming “Night at the Museum 2” movie, alongside Oscar the Grouch.
I agree. Pharmacies are the new fast food joints.
Hopefully my local AMC shows that in 4k (Angels and Demons), as THe Soloist was only shown in 35mm.
New pricing has been added to the AMC Rockaway webpage at AMC’s website, this only includes the Summer MovieCamp tickets which cost $1.
Will digital 4k be installed for this weekend? Angels and Demons is one of the first major summer releases that was shot in 4k.
This was the fourth time I saw a Star Wars movie in the theater. The other three were the original trilogy when it was re-released back in 1997, all at the Loews in Wayne and Secaucus (the first one at the Wayne, the second one at the Secaucus theater and the third at the Wayne). Episode I was at Clifton Commons, and I saw it with my late nana a few weeks after my dad and stepmom saw it while I was on vacation with a school group that week it opened. The movie was ok, but the sound wasn’t digital, it was Dolby Stereo, and I didn’t see it in one of the THX screens; this was at Clifton Commons the month that it opened (at that time it was more than a month old). The next Star Wars movie that I saw, Episode II, was at the Clearview in Mansfield on a DTS surround sound auditorium with razor sharp 35mm projection, and that had a decent love story but dragged on for too long. And finally, Episode III at Clearview in Sucasunna in their biggest house, and it was opening weekend on a Saturday with a huge crowd; I sat nearly close to the screen. Projection was so-so, but the surround sound (Dolby EX) was loud and bombastic. Thank god I didn’t go see Clone Wars at the AMC in Rockaway and stuck with watching the movie on DVD.
FYI, Next Day Air won’t be playing at this theater tomorrow. The closest AMC theaters that I know that will play this piece of junk will be the Garden State 16 and the Clifton Commons theater. I predict a fast death for that movie as it will get phased out by Star Trek, which opens tonight. Tickets are still available for all shows; I think the IMAX is selling more than the 35mm and DLP versions…this is what Rockaway might need later this year if it needs to be profitable.
BTW, how is construction going on the new theater in Secaucus?
During the credits of “FernGully”, the picture was black while the sound was still on. This theater was the second one to be located not too far from a Blockbuster video store right down the street from its location (the other one is at Clifton Commons). At the time of its closing, it, along with the Franklin, were the only theaters not owned by Clearview, General Cinema, and Loews Cineplex. They were independently run by true employees who know it best.
back when it was a quad. I lived there during that time, and went there for so many years before Clifton Commons came. While AMC continues to jack up prices at the megaplex and plans to replace 15 screens with 4k technology, Clearview will still operate the Allwood as a neighborhood small town theater that attracts the poor and elderly residents of the neighborhood who want to see a movie.
Have the fire alarms at the theater been fixed so that they work properly? I read some complaints online on other forums that during showings of a movie that the screen would go black and a loud siren blares, forcing moviegoers to evacuate for around 20 minutes while local fire and police cars come to the scene. This happened once in February; any other instances recently in which the theater had issues? So far during my moviegoing experience at the theater there have been no problems regarding alarms.
According to what I read on some online forum, the wall collapse happened during a movie showing, of which none attended.
30 hours of star trek is pale compared with watching 700+ hours of Star Trek related movies, TV shows, and the cartoon!!!
For the third consecutive year, AMC will have its Summer Movie Camp program starting in June. I’m sure that most of the kids have seen these movies on blu-ray and dvd rather than on the big blurry screen and the loud bassy surround sound!!!
From what I read on Twitter, all four midnight showings of Wolverine were sold out. Pretty amazing for a theater that’s still 10 years old into its lifeline.
One complaint I had during the wolverine screening was during quieter parts of the movie and a baby was coughing and said she had an accident, and some moviegoers told her to be quiet. Very helpful of the moviegoers to do that, since at the AMC, “Silence is Golden”. I sat a row up the row where there is a guardrail near the front seats, which I rarely sit because the screens is too big and blurry.
Here’s an interesting story from the Daily Record about a group of Trekkies who will attend the opening of the new ‘Star Trek’ movie this weekend…
Speaking of 3D movies, Rockaway won’t be showing Up in 3D according to what I checked out on the listings. That might change in a few weeks as AMC is slowly progressing with the digital changeover at its theaters, which will take three years or more depending on the economics of the theater industry and the box office.
Just came back froma 4:15 showing of X-Men: Wolverine, and it was better than I expected. Presentation was good, with a minor splice during the middle of the movie and some discolored frames and minor scratches during the print. For the film’s release, there are two secret endings after the movie’s over. I saw the one in which Wolverine sips some saki at a Japanese restaurant; I won’t spoil it for everyone on CT. The sound mixing was good, not as crowded as I expected to be, since all the showtimes are not selling out like fast. Near the front desk and the ATM machines there are signs saying Monsters vs Aliens is playing only in 2D and that moviegoers can ask the manager or a theater employee for more info. BTW, how is work going with the digital installation? I don’t mind seeing a movie if it’s in 3D or not, just that the tickets will be more expensive.
sounds cool…this should keep the Hall busy throughout the next decade.
I agree with ur comment, CinemarkFan. Lens flares are awesome. It will make Star Trek more stylistic and appeal to those who are not Trekkies. Same thing with the new X-Men movie for those who don’t know who wolverine is.
There’s an article online that says that if you go see Star Trek next week, some people have complained of lens flares shots in the movie.
I agree. Slumdog millionaire lasted longer at the AMC in East Hanover and other indie venues rather than the AMC in Rockaway. Rockaway should show more indie and foreign products like the imaginasian in NYC, which caters to Asian films. THey should also show older older movies like what the AMC in Essex Green did many years ago.
I saw Pirates 3 in 35mm at the Mansfield theater on the smaller screen on the right side, that one recently was replaced with a digital projector. BTW, Pirates 3 was the last major movie that played at the old Tenplex before moving into the GS 16 and played on two screens in DLP.
