From what I’ve seen pictures of, this theater’s interior is very similar to the one in Paramus but is larger and has more screens and seats than Paramus. The closest 24 screen theater near me is in Hamilton, NJ, and that’s owned by AMC. Next time I hang out in Toronto, I’ll check out this theater and bring in a passport!!!
That POTA movie that featured RCMH in shambles showed a vision of New York that didn’t match that of 9/11, when a chunk of Lower Manhattan was destroyed by terrorists. Since then, security has been increased and will try to keep RCMH safe from jets and terrorist acts, not to mention crane accidents like the one in midtown a few weeks ago.
seating should be listed as 4900.
just checked out movietickets.com and tickets aren’t available for drillbit taylor. all other movies have online ticketing. did the auditorium get evacuated or were they doing some imax work on it? also, seating should be 3300, not 3500.
just came back from the movies seeing “21” in theater #2, which has around 500+ seats. #1 has “Horton” and seats around 540+. The presentation was 35mm film, and there were a few instances of splicing and discoloration after the film presentation was delayed for a few minutes…but the screen I saw it on was bigger than the widescreen in Rockaway, plus the sound was great and the seating nice. On the way to the auditorium, one of the workers gave me back my AMC gift card, and she was courteous!!! Parking here is a hassle, even on the day before Sundays!!! The popcorn was ok, very salty near the end. The crowd was well behaved too.
Found this excerpt from some website:
“2. Paramus, New Jersey: Squad car responded to disturbance at AMC multiplex of female minor standing up during showing of ATONEMENT, screaming an obscenity. Complainant was the femaleâ€™s mother, who requested that officers â€œwash out the little bratâ€™s mouthâ€ because she had said â€œthe bad C-word.â€ Officers removed the complainant and the female subject from the theater."

Here’s what I got in my email from AMC…
Thank you for contacting AMC Theatres. Generally, we try to complete
our show schedules on Wednesday evening of each week for the following 7
days. However, many factors can lead to this process being delayed.
The theatre will complete the schedule as soon as possible and post all
their showtimes to www.movietickets.com We apologize for any
AMC Guest Services"
and now checking the site…voila…showtimes!!!
no showtimes for tomorrow…what is going on at rockaway?
That practice has been used for a long time, even though the technology has changed. If a theater’s showtimes is not listed on opening day, then an advisory for the reader to call the theater or look up on the web for showtimes is printed next to the theater, especially if there’s a lot of popular movies!!!
still no showtimes again….maybe i’ll try tomorrow…

Just emailed AMC about the showtimes issue for the weekend. They’ll respond whenever they can. I used the contact us link.
Nope. I don’t have a credit card, but not that desperate. Just curious.
Still no showtimes yet. This is getting worse and worse…
Here’s what they had to say…
“Generally, a theater’s release schedule for a movie runs from Friday to
Thursday. Showtimes for this theater generally appear on Wednesday.
However, for a blockbuster release that is in high demand, tickets and
showtimes may be available up to a month in advance. Schedules are set
by each individual theater, not by MovieTickets.com, so please check
back frequently if the movie you are looking for is not yet for sale in
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the theater
directly at 973 328 4255 for further assistance"
If anyone calls them to see what the fuss is about, then reply to my comment.
I emailed movietickets.com, and hopefully get a comment from them. On moviefone, the showtimes for rockaway are twice what they are on movietickets, causing some to think that a movie is playing on more screens.
Then who does? Still no new showtimes for friday.
yup, and AMC Rockaway is still the most popular theater in Morris County to date.
Last time I checked on movietickets.com, no showtimes for friday for amc in rockaway but there are showtimes for the new naria movie. The closest AMC theater has advanced showtimes for friday too. What’s up with the theater? I hope they publish them two days in advance!!!
What a classic movie….that will never be remade. I like the colored paper that advertised that movie.
They used to have signs that mentioned Stanley Warner, and then Century’s. What plans will happend nearly a year after this place is closed?
That theater is very close by, just a few miles off 287 off Route 80. I’ve seen photos of that place…I’m not coming because I’m staying over at my dad’s in Blairstown (home to a now vacant Cinema Treasure, Roy’s Hall) for easter weekend.
this is why attendance has been slowing down a bit from a few years ago. Even though movies are getting better, the age and structure of newer theaters seem to follow the same path of one, as was the case with the first megaplex, the AMC Grand 24 in Dallas, which is still open. The next big thing will be style and substance. When the new Muvico theater opens in East Rutherford, it will be the first megaplex to have a giant outdoor screen on top of the existing theater (for IMAX use), and a helipad will accomodate celebs for movie premieres and such. The guy who founded Loews created five Wonder theaters, and they were architectual marvels at the time. Out of these five, only one still plays old movies. Stan Durwood created the multiplex thing way before Canadians expanded the idea.
amen to that, lmhg. I first saw 2001 on VHS with the second edition of the VHS when the label was renamed MGM/UA. It was the first vhs release in stereo (dubbed “Videophonic Sound” by the company before it was renamed Dolby Surround) for that movie; the intermission, prolouge, and overture were cut out of the film for time space on the vhs, and the titles were thinned for pan/scan use. When I saw the movie again on a later VHS during the 1990’s, which had the original trailer, all the missing scenes that I mentioned were put back, and the image was sharper and the sound clearer. I also saw the movie again on TCM in its original widescreen format, and that’s what most moviegoers saw way back nearly 40 years ago. I have yet to buy the DVD version, but there’s also a Bluray and an HD DVD version, not to mention a Laserdisc version as well!!! Even Universal HD showed the film not too long ago….This movie came out a year before man walked on the moon. Too bad this movie didn’t predict what would really happen 33 years from when the film came out….
I read in the Daily Record about an article regarding special improvement districts, one of which includes East Hanover. One of the improvements they mention was about creating walkways across Route 10 (ala Bridgewater) and more ramps to and from each intersection to reduce traffic and ease congestion and confusion. East Hanover’s downtown area is unique as it’s mostly businesses run by Italian Americans, especially the restaurants. Not to mention what is now Kraft Foods, a food company in a building more bigger than this theater!!! They do a good job shipping out snacks for moviegoers to eat!!! As of right now, Chester, East Hanover, Madison, Chatham, and Rockaway don’t have digital projection, but the latter will get IMAX DLP, meaning that all the smaller theaters will cease to exist, leaving the East Hanover theater to become the next theater to have up-to-date equipment.
