One day I will go see a movie at this theater before it closes.
and a hot spot for terrorism, as evidenced by the 9/11 attacks as well as crime and corruption, none of which has kept the Ziegfeld from closing. when that time comes, if it shuts down for good, it will leave celebrities another choice to see a movie premiere: the lincoln square multiplex.
they will continue to advertise at clearview for a few more years.
What about a Matrix Trilogy? That will be cool!!!!
This sounds good for the theater as this movie might outlast all of the earlier crap at the theater, which is a good thing. Plus, it’s nice to see Dreamgirls the way it’s meant to be seen, on a DLP screen with excellent surround sound and comfortable seating, at one of the most famous theaters in the world.
How about the return of Star Wars (the good ones) at the theater? Oops, they did that already in the 1997 rerelease….they should bring some cult 70’s 80’s classics like an Alien double feature, a Ghostbusters double-bill, and a Rocky marathon.
How about “Transformers: The Movie”? That sounds silly, but they should show it before the new “Transformers” movie comes out this summer (maybe at the Ziegfeld, perhaps?)
How about cult 80’s fantasy films like “The Dark Crystal”, “Krull”, and “Dragonslayer”, all presented in their original 70mm splendor and six-track Dolby Stereo!!! That would be cool.
The classic film series that played at the Ziegfeld is now in Succasunna, with one film playing every week. Has anyone been to this series, and how does it compare with the more popular Ziegfeld showings?
Of course, there will be more parking after the triplex is demolished and cleaned up….hopefully the winter storm doesn’t postpone the opening and construction of the new 16-plex!!!
Is the old Criterion similar to the one in times square that was once a multiplex straight from where MTV is located?
Which means that “Star Wars” played in plain old mono on one screen and another movie played on another with mono sound also. How many seats did each theater have after being twinned, and which one was larger, one or two?
just minutes from the theater there is a new 12 plex being built in linden. how far will it be from jersey gardens? it will be interesting how it stacks up to its nearest competition.
AMC does a good job of showing previews in their original aspect ratio and the surround sound (e.g., Dolby Digital EX) because they are the only film reels attached to the policy trailers so that it runs after the AMC Moviewatcher Network ends; this (and other digital pre show materials by National Cinemedia) saves projectionists money and time, unlike Screenvision, which still uses old slides and film before the green band-less trailers.
does the loews auditorium still have 8 channel sdds? i would love to see a movie in that format.
If this theater is sold, they should make it a stage theater ala Radio City Music Hall!!!
what movie was the most popular and which one was the least popular at the tenplex? also, what will become of fuddrucker’s and the surrounding area near the theater?
Since the theater opened several months ago, has it been one of the profitable theaters for AMC? According to Wikipedia, only the Empire is the closest theater in my area that makes more money than the Rockaway location. Any word on when DLP comes to the theater? It would be nice to see a movie in HD, e.g. 300 or Grindhouse. The prints are a bit fuzzier than the Clearview screens in Parsippany, although the sound is really good and the seats are comfy!!!
Coming this march at the cinema…“Close Encounters of the Third Kind”…why don’t they show something like a “Star Wars”, a “Matrix”, or an “E.T.”? BTW, how does this film series at Succasunna compare to the Ziegfeld one?
…This theater should reopen by the time the summer movie season begins…I can’t wait!!!

Too bad the Rockaway theater won’t be showing this festival.
In the mid-1970s, probably around 1975. BTW, when the current multiplex opened in Menlo Park back in 1991, what made it different from the original theater which eventually closed down?
Mostly a stereo version, I believe. Theaters that were equipped with Dolby Stereo as well as the 70mm version played that version, while most theatres played a mono soundtrack. Therefore, the STEREO version played at the Menlo Park cinema. The MONO version had in fact more sound fx and more lines spoken by the star wars characters, especially aunt beru.
GCC had one profitable theater in the Bronx which would become the AMC Bay Plaza 13. The market for theatres in Long Island was too saturated.
just went to see happy feet( which has been playing for more than two months after it came out when the theater opened) and i was glad it was still playing while its opening weekend rival, casino royale, lived and let die at the theater. just wait until summer rolls around and there will be more movies that will have a long exhibition life. just like happy feet which was awesome on a decent screen with rumbling surround sound.
