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.
my bad, ticket prices at the GS16 are a bit more pricey than Rockaway and the old tenplex.
Amen to that, Jeff S. Same goes for the Rockaway 16, which brough movies back to Rockaway after a five year absence during which Clearview dominated the box office in that area with Parsippany. I hope AMC makes better multiplexes to replace those that don’t have the amenities of AMC’s newer theaters, and match the prices up with AMC’s standards. When I checked out the pricing for the AMC in Paramus, the ticket prices remain the same for regular films, but digital 3-D pricing has come in, which is a bit more expensive but cheaper and better than IMAX 3-D. My dad went to see Star Wars the weekend it opened at the Tenplex since there was no other theater playing it. Back then, the film played on a giant screen before it was chopped up in the early 80’s to what it was today. I hope they sanitize the building years after it’s closed down just in case if they want to renovate the theater into a cheap theater. I think Clearview should buy that theater like they did with the Ziegfeld and show classic movies. It should be called Clearview Bijou Route 4 10. ‘Nuff said.
May she rest in peace; did she ever meet Sumner Redstone and his daughter, who both own the family-owned company?
So is “Silence is Golden®”, another popular AMC trademark used to quiet down those teens with cell phones and crying babies with that annoying trailer played before the feature presentation one at most AMC theaters. I prefer the original one with the flying eagle cartoon over the soundwave preview. I still miss the classic Cineplex galaxy trailer with the coliseum-like logo before each movie at the tenplex. Was this theater one of Cineplex’s highest grossing theaters (along with the Ziegfeld and the CityWalk in CA)? I guess it was and was also a top grosser for the RKO and Stanley Warner chains and still survived to its Loews Cineplex and AMC days.
he must have some good experience with those theaters.
like the now closed Route 4 tenplex and the extinct Eaton Center 21 screen theater that was at the time the first true megaplex in North America, and also the still open Ziegfeld theater and Chelsea multiplex. Also, it had 4 more screens than the still open Beverly Center 14 (which is now a Mann theater) and was much bigger and luxurious.
Was this theater a showcase for Universal’s movies, much like the El Capitan was for Disney? Also, was this theater the flagship of the Cineplex Odeon chain before the takeovers?
what’s frightening about that photo is that the theater is straight across from the competition, the AMC. How are the AMC-owned Loews theaters doing against their own brand? I guess Regal has an excellent way of acquiring chains much like Clearview does with smaller theaters in the metro area.
can anyone send me a link to a picture of the regal theater?
if amc renovates the tenplex and rename both theaters amc garden state 1-16 and garden state 17-26 that would make a difference. they should make the tenplex a bowling alley since the borough doesn’t have its own, and the nearest is bowler city in hackensack.
Tomorrow, there will be no tenplex. May there be another use for this long-running theater, which will pass the torch tomorrow morning to the new theater near the Garden State Plaza.
Remember, this page is only for the ROute 4 theater, not the Rialto; the same can be said for other Bergen County theaters.
This theater opened as part of a new performing arts center in South Orange called SoPAC as part to compete with NJPAC and BergenPAC. This is Clearview’s newest theater, catering to the college crowd from Seton Hall. It is competing with West Orange’s Essex Green (by AMC), and East Orange’s Hollywood Cinemas (independently owned).
Oh, my bad. Two theaters with DLP sounds great, since the closest theater near me that has DLP is either Parsippany and Succasunna, both owned by Clearview. It won’t be too long before DLP comes to my theater.
I agree with you…the last art house theater in Paramus was the Paramus Picture Show, which I used to go to when it was not an art house theater but a runover product for movies that played at the larger venues. And it won’t be too long before Bergen County gets another new theater this decade, the one to claim number one, the 26 screen Xanadu complex owned by Muvico which will open next year near the Meadowlands will draw huger crowds than any movie theater in New Jersey.
Just went to the new theater’s showtimes listing and they’re showing pirates on only one digital screen out of 16. Two screens will have rear window captioning. The rest will be normal screens. Tomorrow night Pirates debuts as the last new film at the Route 4 location before heading off to the AMC Garden State 16, which will carry over most of the ROute 4 stuff as the old theater will be demolished this weekend.
