thanks for changing the status of the theater, CT. I wonder what will become of this now barren building. I guess a million people visited this theater during its 42 year run.
I’ve seen the 1976 version as well as the 2005 version, but not the 1933 version. The 2005 version stays true to the original and has some pretty good effects. Between King Kong and Godzilla, I’d say King Kong has the edge in movie culture.
Oh sorry….which musician has performed the most at the hall? I’d say probably Elton John.
i was worried about that..hopefully someone would respond to my comments this weekend while the theater editing policy thing goes on.
You’re right. Cinema Treasures existed way before Wikipedia changed the way we read info about stuff. Wikipedia doesn’t even have a listing for Clearview Cinemas, it’s only mentioned once in the Cablevision wiki. There are wikis for other theater chains as well.
One of several sites playing Hannah Montana in 3D.
Later this year this theater will turn 15 years old. A few years after opening in 1993, other loews locations in North Jersey adopted the Star Design, which is still in use today even with people now wearing AMC uniforms as well as the trailers. Both this theater and the Succasunna theater owned by Clearview are near the start and end of Route 10, respectively. Both have sloped down seating but Clearview has the advantage with digital projection (even though they have no morning prices). What will the next 15 years bring for this struggling theater? Only time will tell…
Last spring of 2007, the theater was closed for awhile because of a methane gas leak. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Loews' second theater in Bergen County, several years after the opening of the Showboat Quad in nearby Edgewater, and I’ve read blogs online that say that this theater is not a true AMC theater, as it’s now called. Only a few Loews locations that have stadium seating, an IMAX theater attached to it, or huge crowds survive after AMC buys these locations. It was nearby the site of a fatal crash near the 80/95 interchange where some high school kids were killed trying to cross the road.
i agree with you.
The main opposition against CT is a site called CinemaTour, and there are other sites that want to be the next site tracking old places…CinemaTour’s info is very accurate even though it doesn’t have the new policy like C Treasures does.
Screw CT….Cinematour does a good job of tracking theaters like this, but they don’t get the popularity of Cinema Treasures!!!
And it’s still open!!!
I hope that theater should become a playhouse since there’s quite a few around Bergen County, the closest is BergenPAC, fka the John Harms Center for the Arts.
what is the theater right now? I used to go there back when it was a third run theater, they showed James and the Giant Peach and during the movie they stopeed it for a brief intermission in which me and my classmates from junior high (Mrs. Volpe-Densen’s reading class) went to get snacks or the restroom, Once that was over, we went back in, and then before the credits rolled, the movie stopped. It was a good experience that I would never forget. I even saw the infamous Rocky Horror lips poster, even though I haven’t seen much of that movie.
someone should update this theater to closed since it’s for sale.
I’ve been to that lowe’s and while it’s not as big as the home depot store, the space around it is still open and very rural.
It should be CLOSED!!!
I’m check here right now, and it’s still “open”? Boy, this theater policy will be taking a long, long, time…it’s closed, closed, CLOSED!!!
This theater lacks the DVS/OC stuff for the disabled, leaving that to Bridgewater. Hopefully they’ll upgrade their projection to DLP soon…as their preshow is still filmed.
Not only this theater is playing Hanna Montana in DLP, but a handful of other films are being shown in the format. How many screens out of 12 does Clearview have equipped with DLP? At Succasunna it’s 2 screens.
Beowulf was shown in Digital 3-D at this theater. Also worth noting on the theater’s Fandango page is that one of the theaters is THX certified. Is this true? It’s playing “Atonement”. Still a pricey theater, since the price change back in November.
Most recently one of its screens uses Open Captioning and Descriptive Audio, and its ticketing service is Fandango. This theater shares the same 20-minute preshow with the AMC in Rockaway, aka the First Look.
Hopefully they update the status of the Tenplex to closed, and pretty soon the Newton theater will be open again. Maybe in the near future they should allow Youtube clips and maybe a myspace link to some of those commentators so that users can add fans as a friend. It’s a great thing that CT is not owned by some big wig company like Time Warner or soon a Microsoft Yahoo company that wants to put lots of ads on it.
One reason that I get those comment emails, some of which direct me to the wrong theater of which I never went to…I always unsubscribe from comments related to those places…as for the hall, I haven’t seen anything advertised about it on tv lately…the easter thing is going on soon.
Here’s the link…
