Here’s a link to a story regarding management changes at the parent company of this theater…http://tinyurl.com/dykcpf
BTW, will digital debut this weekend with Monsters vs Aliens? One screen (theater 8) will have the 3-D version, while two other screens or more will show it in 35mm 2-D. I know all the digital Clearviews will show it on most of their screens since this movie will become a must-win for Dreamworks, since it’s the largest real D/ Imax 3-D movie rollout of all time. There’s an article in several Time Warner-owned magazines about the 3-D rebirth craze, along with the color code 3-D glasses that were also used for the Super Bowl ad and a TV show. Trust me, that 3-D is not as good as Digital 3-D.

Maybe Regal could do it, since they’re publicly traded and are in much better shape than AMC.

Yup. I’m not getting any notices at all too. I even get notifications to theaters that I haven’t been to, so I don’t subscribe to them at all.

The Meadow Six was the first to open in 1982, so I guess the Plaza 8 opened shortly thereafter. Now Secaucus will have only one theater left until the Meadow Six closes and the new Kerasotes Showplace 14 opens. BTW, how’s construction going at that place?

Just came back from a 2:10 showing of “I Love You Man” in one of the big auditoriums and before the film started the preshow didn’t have picture but had sound working. Hopefully they’ll fix it by the next time I see a movie here.

On the AMC website, there’s still a webpage featuring the now-closed theater, but the fandango showtimes say they’re not available.

I read a headline today that says that the opening of Xanadu is delayed yet again until 2010, which means that moviegoers will have to go to North Bergen or the new Hoboken theater that will open this year for their moviegoing fix.

I saw the theater while watching the movie “Milk”. Very classy theater, even though I haven’t been inside it.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Rockaway Inner 6/Outer 6 on Mar 11, 2009 at 1:23 pm

after the outer closed, several retailers in that same building have come and gone, while a few, such as acme, have survived since the outer’s opening in 1981. the doors that were near the entrance had the gold amc logo in the middle of the doors as well as a changeable display that was small but easy to read. inside the lobby, there were more arcade machines than the current one, and the concession stand was tiny.

upcoming movies for next week are i love you man, knowing, and duplicity. hopefully by the 27th 3d will be installed for monsters vs aliens as well as any future 3d and 2d movies in the digital format. hopefully it will be 4k instead of the 2k that the clearviews as well as the amcs in paramus and clifton use.

I remember when I was young that this theater always showed family, comedy, and indie films such as Aladdin (where I got a coloring paper and wanted to win something like free movie tickets but didn’t) while the Meadow six had the event films like The Fifth Element (probably the last movie I saw there before they expanded the Loews Wayne) back when Sony/Loews owned the chain before AMC ran it to the ground.

Has anyone attended a Met HD show at this theater? If so, is the projection like what someone sees on a PBS HD broadcast, and is the sound terrific? I would love to check a show out, but tickets are expensive and they usually sell out, as is the case with the most famous opera that’s now playing, Madame Butterfly.

a korean movie premiered exclusively at this theatre, the only one in the country and the first korean movie to be shown, according to the ny times. theater 4, the large one, was packed with a mostly korean american audience who watched the movie for one night only.
