good for the shoppers at Garden State Plaza who want to see a movie at the new movie theater in Paramus on days when the mall is closed; plenty of parking, indeed.
That’s a good thing. The only changes that were made to this theater was the addition of more theaters, which made the Loews theater the first megaplex in Passaic County long before Clifton Commons came along. That happened sometime around thanksgiving of 1996, when I went to see “Jingle All the Way” in one of the 14 screens, which at the time was the top grossing theater in that area. Even though Clifton Commons has drawn people away from this aging theater with its stadium seating and THX sound, the AMC Loews Wayne is still a decent theater to check out a movie, and is located near a major shopping mall despite being flood prone.
Just went to this theater for the first time in more than a year, and this theater needs more bathrooms. When compared to the monstrosity that is Rockaway, I went to a showing at theater 14, which is a long way from the bathrooms. Look like they’re repainting and renovating the restrooms since I last went there, and ticket prices have jumped up a bit even though they are still cheaper than Rockaway. Too bad this theater doesn’t have the DLP that the other two popular Clearviews (Succasunna and Parsippany) have. The movie I saw, Pirates 3, was a decent presentation with good sound and good projection.
And it will premiere in digital projection, I guess.
thanks for the info! Out of all the summer movies, which movie did extremely well so far at this theater?
I asked a question via Yahoo answers about why the site was down, and no answer came up. I then went there again, and it was back online!!! Today I read why the site was down…thankfully you’re now much improved and I don’t wait minutes for a page to load…you’re more popular than CInematour!!!
looks stale compared to the Empire 25 marquee!!!
Here’s a video of the recent flooding around the wayne theater…
thankfully the theater reopened after the waters receded!!!
it’s the back of the theater.
nice photo; btw, anything new coming to the rockaway theater since opening late last year? It’s still a great place to see a movie, yet the management is a bit slow and the projection is not as sharp as a loews or a clearview theater.
was it the first movie theater in Newark, NJ? The only movie theater that remains in this area is the former Loews in Newark, which is now called Newark Screens on Springfield.
so far, it’s not open, what’s holding it up? The theater is opening in the same building where Panera is now, along with a Rita’s that will open soon.
Just went to this theater again for the first time in a few years to see “Waitress” at screen 12, the smallest of the theaters. Decent presentation despite the fact that this theater is near a major road construction project that is costing $15 million in taxes, all due to the flood. Thankfully, the theater wasn’t hit hard by the noreaster.
Just went to this theater to see “Shrek the Third” and I was a bit disappointed. The projection was decent, and the sound was so-so. The seating needs improvement, as there are better theaters around the area (especially around New Brunswick and surrounding cities). This is the only Cineplex Odeon theater remaining in NJ after the Tenplex was closed.
me too..that theater changed the way people went to movies in North Jersey. the theater was on the big screen in the movie ransom.
Maybe all the stuff from the old tenplex will be moved to other theaters owned by AMC. The movies that played at the tenplex were moved to the new location.
8 channel sdds?
Which sound formats did this theater have? I guess most of them anyway.
Someone should change the status of this theater to closed…it’s not open anymore.
You’re right, Mr. Fink. What about a cinema/museum hybrid? That would be really cool.
I agree with you. It would be interesting if I would go to the Route 4 theater when it gets restored to its single screen glory. Sell all the other equipment except the 70mm/35mm projector, then play films in all sound and film formats known to man. Keep the tickets cheap (at opening day prices when the theater was first introduced in 1965), make the seats stadium seating rather than the old-style seating, and show nothing but classic trailers and films, not that AMC moviewatcher crap!!! For concessions, they should bring out the goodies: popcorn, candy, and soda as opposed to the massive food menu that AMC provides. And no Moviewatcher rewards, that takes up a lot of time and money!!! Online ticketing is a must as shows might get sold out. Rename it AMC Route 4 Palace.
On days when the mall closes, the only place hopping will be the AMC and the restaurants. ‘Nuff said.
