star trek is also coming out in imax, too.
Next year from this holiday season marks the 15th anniversary of the opening of this great theater. Although ownership has changed, nothing much inside the theater has changed except the showing of more IMAX versions of blockbuster movies. Next year, there will be more IMAX screens in Manhattan thanks to the IMAX Digital rollout in Kips Bay alongside the Empire 25 theater and the NatureMax theater near the museum of Natural History, not to mention my local theater in Rockaway getting the mini-IMAX treatment. Will AMC soon change the IMAX format to digital at this location? It would make sense and save the cost of shipping and handling of the film to the theater.
Later this month, this theater turns 15, and it stil draws local crowds from Florham Park/Madison/East Hanover. This theater was opened not too far from an AMC theater in Morristown, which soon became a Clearview like Madison, Livingston (closed), and Parsippany. So far, it hasn’t gone independent like Chatham, owned by Roberts, although they show indie films on a regular basis.
later this week the theater will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Any special occasions? “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and “Delgo” are the noteworthy releases coming out. Since AMC took over, has the exterior been changed? I know several Loews theaters made pre-AMC and stadium seating still bear that name as Loews is still a division of AMC Entertainment. That theater is still larger and taller than East Hanover and Wayne!!! I first saw this building while on a commute to the schools in the Ridgefield School district, of which this theater was a favorite of students and staff to go to; nowadays, Edgewater is the place to go.
Ever since this theater opened near the mall, customer traffic near the shopping center has increased, even on sundays when the nearby mall is closed and there is ample parking day and night although getting there is tricky.
Advance tickets are now on sale not only for The Day The Earth Stood Still, but Seven Pounds (starring Will Smith in his fourth movie that played at this theater that started with Pursuit of Happyness, then I Am Legend and Hancock), and Yes Man, starring Jim Carrey in his third movie that will play at this theater following The Number 23 and Horton, which had a successful run at this theater for a long period before the summertime. Out of all those movies playing at this theater, the new Keanu Reeves movie will do exceptionally well, even though the IMAX system won’t be ready until the day after oscar nominations are announced.
I agree. The only everday games that matter are the rivalry ones. Fox Sports recently signed with 150 theaters to show the college bowl games in 3D live. It won’t be soon before a world series of power or a ufc match comes to a theater near you!!!
Several AMC IMAX theaters will open on the same day that “The Dark Knight” gets re-released in traditional and IMAX theaters just in time for Oscar balloting; by then I will have seen the movie a second or third time on Blu-Ray for christmas, since that edition has the IMAX scenes intact.
Not only the game was shown in 3D theaters, but it was also shown online at the league’s website. The score of the game was Chargers 34, Raiders 7.
looks like batman is coming back to rockaway…the dark knight returns on the same day that the imax arrives. the dvd came out early at the cvs where i work in florham park.
I never been to those theaters since they are located far and wide around NJ. Back in the 90’s, NA dominated urban cities like Newark and Sayreville with theaters that were visible near the turnpike. Nowadays they’re gone due to competition from other chains and other issues. The closest NA theater near me is the one in Edgewater, which was constructed not too far from where I used to job sample at the Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen. That theater is still thriving and doing better business than the Loews in Ridgefield Park, which is aging. Any chain that is not losing money can buy NA’s theaters and still make a profit.
Next thing u know, there will be 3-D football, baseball, basketball, and hockey!!! I can’t wait to see my Yankees in 3-D without ever paying a ticket or getting stuck in traffic to the stadium!!!
Great poster. That was 50 years ago yesterday, when the Hall mostly played movies alongside its Xmas shows.
I think so. This was before the ratings system came into effect in the later 1960’s and porn broke out into the mainstream.
How about Gran Torino? That’s a WB title and a masterpiece by Eastwood.
I first heard that story too. Too bad these events are closed to the public and only press are allowed. Wish I was one of them and attended the event rather than not watching it without the NFL Network, which is televising the game as well as local stations in the San Diego and Oakland areas. At least I’ll check online, as both teams are struggling to make the playoffs. This isn’t the first time an NFL game was shown in 3D, that would go to the 2004 Super Bowl between the Pats and Cats, which was shown shortly after the game was live. Maybe sometime if the Giants make the playoffs, I could see it at my local AMC in Rockaway!!!
Next year it will house an IMAX screen.
During a screening of Ratatouille at the AMC in Paramus, the projection was blurry since I sat too close to the screen. The 3D Nightmare movie was too dark due to watching it with 3D glasses. And during screenings of movies at the Mansfield theater, some of the surrounds did not work and on one of the screens, the picture was a bit upward.
Upcoming releases at this theater are two….Nobel Son, an independent movie about a family whose father wins the Nobel Prize (great reviews), and Punisher: War Zone, a sequel to the first Punisher movie that doesn’t have the first movie’s star and will likely bomb against this past weekend’s number one movie, Four Xmases.
I agree. At the AMC in Rockaway, 1.85 fills the entire screen while 2.35 or more shrinks it.
I agree. Possibly due to uncertain economic conditions this has delayed the IMAX rollout into AMC’s theaters, as well as other chains who want to install IMAX.
January 23rd is the date that my local AMC theater here in Rockaway will get an IMAX screen, as well as other select theaters.
Bad news, Dark Knight fans. According to Superherohype.com, The Dark Knight won’t return to IMAX theaters both old and new next month. I guess the next IMAX movie to play here will be “The Day the Earth Stood Still” a month and 11 days after it’s out next week. At least I’ll see the IMAX scenes on BluRay when I get it for christmas.
BTW, has attendance for the Christmas show increased or decreased from last year? Right now we’re in a recession that started a month after the Xmas show opened last year, and people can’t afford a lot of money to watch a christmas tradition that has been a mainstay of the hall forever. Maybe Cablevison could follow suit and broadcast the show to all the Clearviews that have DLP, like they did with the Knicks/Rangers games at the venue that it owns, the Garden.
