The opening of the new theater will be fall of 2009, meaning that moviegoers in Secaucus will still go see movies at this theater and its sister for one more year this month. Kerasotes' Showplace 14 will be one of two new theaters in the Meadowlands region, the other being the mammoth Muvico complex near Xanadu to compete with the leading Clifton Commons theater.

Like screen #4. The showing of Bollywood films is something that the AMC in Rockaway lacks.

This theater also has a Starbucks Coffee shop, although it is not in use anymore. And I read a review from one moviegoer on one of those opinion sites that the smell from theater 1 was mildewy.

BTW, has attendance at this theater dropped because of the slowing economy at the nearby mall?

moviebuff82 commented about Signs go up as well as prices on Oct 29, 2008 at 11:31 am

Don’t forget blurry projection and loud surround sound. At the AMC near where I live in Rockaway, that’s the case there. But at the Clearview plexes in Succasunna, Parsippany, and Mansfield, it’s just right.

moviebuff82 commented about Thirty years ago was the night HE came home! on Oct 28, 2008 at 1:07 pm

I first saw this movie when I rented it from a local Blockbuster store back when I was in my junior year of high school, compared with the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street films, this one was less scary and sexy and more suspense. I have since owned the movie when it came out on a 20th anniversary 2-tape set complete with a doc on the making of the film (the widescreen version) and once in awhile Monsters HD shows it uncut!!! I didn’t get to see the remake until I borrowed it from a friend of mine and it’s about equal to the original, although more modern and scarier. I hope the new Friday the 13th stays true to its roots as well.

just came back from a showing of Max Payne in theater #13, and me and my dad are the only two people in the theater since most of the crowds went to see either HSM3 or SAW V. Only one splice during the film…but the sound was loud and clear and the presentation was perfect. The popcorn served at this theater is the same as Clearview, good old Orville Redenbacher. Don’t care for the new Queen concert playing next thursday since I liked the band when Freddie Mercury was the lead. Next movie I’m attending will be Zack and Miri with my cousin and her husband.

moviebuff82 commented about Teachers accuse cinemas of exploiting kids on Oct 22, 2008 at 11:55 am

As for the movie itself, it might break records this weekend at the US Box office, beating Saw V to the punch since “HSM3” will attract mostly teenyboppers and kids; the 8:10 showing at the AMC in Rockaway is sold out on Friday night.

This is the second time that this place is for sale. I hope to attend a performance at this venue once new ownership takes place.

for the second straight year, there will be no sawfest at this theater next week just in time for the second saw movie to play at this theater. Maybe next year if they ever make a saw vi.

moviebuff82 commented about World's first IMAX-Dome theater being renovated on Oct 13, 2008 at 9:36 am

There’s an Imax Dome theater near me at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. It was renovated just recently alongside the expansion project for the science museum, which I haven’t been to in a long time. Seeing a movie in this format is more immersive than watching a regular IMAX or 35mm movie.

I would love to check this theater out sometime, but don’t have enough money to go see a show or a movie there.

Went to see a 4:25 p.m. showing of Body of Lies, the second movie from Ridley Scott to play at this theater. No splices during the feature and previews, although after the preshow ended the film screen was tiny and then the projectionist increased the screen. Crowd was well behaved, although the film was masked off by a bit when it began. Popcorn and soda were good, and pretty soon Coca Cola Zero will be offered as a fountain drink just in time for the new James Bond movie, as soda cups have “Coca Cola Zero Zero Seven”.

Paul Sorvino was at this theater during the second week of “Greetings from the Shore”, an independent film that didn’t last long.

The summary should be changed to AMC, since I created the listing for this theater a bit before the merger.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Wayne 14 on Oct 6, 2008 at 11:35 am

So far, I haven’t read anything about anything being shown in digital in Wayne, East Hanover, and Secaucus (save for Episode I in the 6-plex). Too bad they didn’t keep the 70mm projectors before splitting the two large houses up. Boy I’d wish I’d seen a movie in those screens, although they shown mostly grown up fair when I first went to the Wayne theater. Since AMC bought Loews, I can now use my Moviewatcher card and use movie passes at this theater.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Rockaway Inner 6/Outer 6 on Oct 6, 2008 at 11:32 am

Which carried on into the Rockaway 16’s stadium seats. The moviewatcher club made its debut at both theaters and so did clip, that filmstrip guy which is my favorite movie mascot alongside Popcorn Bob of GC. I didn’t join moviewatcher until my credits program was discontinued due to the acquisition by AMC the year that it closed, in 2002.

I changed my mind and now will try to go see Body of Lies at this theater or Mansfield. BTW, has the economic crisis affected the theater (excluding the mall)? Pretty soon just in time for the holidays prices will go up again; my dad always gets free AMC movie passes from the local dentist over in Denville, Dr. Genung., which I can use on any movie.

moviebuff82 commented about Cinepolis Succasunna on Oct 6, 2008 at 11:22 am

Try going to google news archives and typing in succasunna cinema 10 and click back to the 1980’s section. Here’s something I can recall from nearly three years ago when the two new screens were almost done…before the movie King Kong started in theater #5, one of the staff members (the GM) welcomed the audience into the movie and told about donating money to the Will Rogers fund or something like that…this is something that the AMC in Rockaway would like to see. And btw, I never went to the upstairs theaters for good reason…they were probably worse than the newer two screens!!!

$1 billion? This is despite a falling stock market as of today which could hurt the banks and the media and tech companies that are behind this digital thing.

Reliance Media will soon own Dreamworks if the Hollywood based studio parts ways with Paramount. Reliance is based in India.

Speaking of which…it doesn’t look like the old AMC in Rockaway, which was quite large for a shoebox theater that didn’t have the glitz and glamour of the larger successor (of course I mean the outer 6).
