Today I got a $100 bill from my mom for xmas…enough to buy me a ticket for the show. When it comes to the xmas show, i’d rather be with other people rather than being alone in a big theater.
thankfully this theater wasn’t at a mall where there was a near-fatal stabbing of a shopper by a victim, as local news have been reporting this past week or two. Sadly, an elderly shopper was killed by a passing car near the parking lot of the Macy’s wing. Most of the traffic around the Paramus area on a Sunday have been due to the movies and restaurants in Paramus. Too bad there’s no Fuddrucker’s near the 16-plex. I think this theater is the luxury car of movie theaters in North Jersey and is visited by more moviegoers than Rockaway and Clifton Commons combined. Plus, this theater has more seats and bigger auditoriums plus higher prices.
this weekend marks the return of movies to castleton square with the opening of an all-digital megaplex owned by AMC. Art movies will play there besides commercial fare on all 14 screens.
this weekend marks the return of AMC to Indy with the Castleton Square 14, the first all-digital AMC theater. It’s not listed on this site yet, but someone who knows that place well will post it sometime soon.
don’t forget there was a hi-def version of the christmas show, which aired for only one time this past Sunday night on MSG.
i agree with you peter. Newton will suffer a decline in business next year since the theater’s closed.
yup. It didn’t take 55 years to build it, that’s just slang for the company’s founding in 1910. BTW, what was Century Theaters and how did it get its name? When that theater opened, was it the same size as what used to be a one-screener on Route 4? The garden state theater is much bigger than both combined!!!
this as sales for high def movies are at an all time high, since they deliver better picture and sound quality on par with 70mm film.
u mean qualcomm.
amc in rockaway sounds like a good thing since this will bring more traffic to the mall than usual and attendance will surge and this theater will make more money than its competitors, who have to rely on dlp and sloped seating.
go to amc’s website, mywill. My local theater will get the system sometime by 2008 (rockaway 16).
Wrong story is right. Hopefully digital projection would come to the Mansfield complex, which is one of the three most popular Clearviews in the tri-state area that would benefit from the deal. Other theaters that could benefit include those that have 10 screens or more.
Unfortunately, hopes for an IMAX theater in Paramus will have to go by as the AMC in ROckaway will be the only complex in North Jersey to show the format come summer 2008; the closest theaters are in West Nyack and Lincoln Square; Jersey City only shows Omnimax films.
This theater, as well as the Clifton Commons, will not have IMAX 3D, leaving the Rockaway complex to be the only theater in North Jersey to show the format come summer 2008.
One of 100 theaters to show films in IMAX 3D come summer 2008 as part of deal between AMC and Imax.
better news. IMAX 3D will come to this theater come summer 2008 as a part of a deal between AMC and IMAX.
One of several former Loews houses that will be retrofitted to include IMAX 3D as part of a deal between AMC and IMAX for summer 2008.
this theater will be the first in times square to have a new version of the IMAX 3D system, scheduled for launch sometime in the summer of 2008.
my bad. The system which will be installed at this theater by around summer 2008 will be a new version of the Imax 3-D system that eliminates the need for bulky film, hence it will be digital and will charge $2-4 more per ticket. BTW, which of the 16 screens will be retrofitted for the IMAX 3-D, or will it be an additional screen? Only time will tell.
The original Rockaway theater had no 70mm capabilities, but its successor will finally get it when an IMAX screen will be added to the theater by summer 2008.
This just in….Looks like the AMC in Rockaway will have IMAX!!!
I’ll also post this as a news item. IMAX will be a much welcome addition to this theater and will increase traffic and money. IMAX tickets are more expensive than digital 3-D and 35mm combined. It’ll be nice to see an IMAX movie in Rockaway rather than drive all the way to manhattan or west nyack.
Being a liberal, I think Hollywood is taking it too far to make really good movies and just being a bit conservative, making movies to rekindle us of the fear that’s in the news. After the release of Dawn of the Dead (the original), the number of shootings at malls increased, including the one in Omaha, where a new movie theater will be open soon but will have to increase security due to this tragedy. As for Cloverfield, I hope it’s the most serious monster movie of the year and not some silly remake of an old movie. J.J. Abrahams knows what’s going for him, with that movie and the upcoming star trek sequel, whose trailer will be attached to Cloverfield.
This coming weekend, The Golden Compass will play on 2 35mm screens, while Beowulf will still play in 3d.
just checked the website for succasunna, and beowulf was still showing in 3d. My bad. parsippany will still play beowulf in 3d while succasunna plays THe Golden Compass on the DLP screen in plain old 2d.
This week marks the 25th anniversary of this theater. Opening attractions included “48 Hours”, “The Toy”, and “Airplane II: The Sequel”; each feature was on two screens each, and one became a big hit for Eddie Murphy and for the theater itself. Since then, the theater has seen its share of hits like “Jurassic Park” and misses like “Waterworld”.
