My friend Anthony went to see My Bloody Valentine in 3-D with his dad, and it cost like $27 for the movie, excluding snacks!!! Pretty soon Rockaway will have it, but for a bit more money as well….
Current attractions include Hotel for Dogs and Gran Torino.
Just checked the movie’s ticket site, and no mention of digital or 3d projection. The next 3d release will be the Jonas Brothers concert movie (the duo performed at the mall back in xmas of 2007), followed by Monsters vs Aliens, of which I saw a 3D preview during the Super Bowl. It looks promising. I was so looking forward to seeing Coraline in 3d, but I’ll just have to stick with the 2d version.
One day before the awards are handed out, this theater will show all five movies in one auditorium non-stop from 10:30 am to around 8 p.m. Of course, there will be breaks between each movie so that guests can refill their popcorn and soda for free (this applies to Moviewatcher members only), and the $25 is a bargain, especially in these tough economic times that are keeping shoppers away from the high-priced mall that’s near the theater. Maybe next year this theater will show the Super Bowl if the Giants or Jets win, given the timing of the installation of the DLP equipment.
I agree with you John….this theater doesn’t have the soundproofing that Clifton Commons has with their THX theaters, and lacks the stadium seating that Mansfield has. At least this is the only cinema left on the entire Route 46 highway in NJ. I don’t go there that much anymore because of the Rockaway theater, which will soon add digital projection to one of their houses just in time for the flood of 3-D movies that Parsippany has been playing since they got it back in 2007 for Meet the Robinsons.
Upcoming attractions for this theater include She’s just not that into you and push. This theater also has all five of the best picture nominees playing right now….I’ll probably catch Slumdog before the awards begin and see if it can win that golden statue!!!
Some time ago this week, the theater was closed because there were police cars surrounding the building. What was going on there? I was on respite not too far from the theater and heard of the incident. After the incident was over, the theater re-opened the following day.
Just checked AMC’s Imax website and there’s no listing for this theater to become an Imax. BTW, how are things going on the digital projection thing? I read online that Paramount is inking a deal with AMC as well as Cinemark and Regal to install digital cinema equipment. The next major 3-D release will be Coraline, followed by Monsters vs Aliens 3D; I got the 3D glasses at a CVS so I can watch the commercials during the Super Bowl to see what the fuss is about. Then when the movie comes out, hopefully Rockaway will show it in 3-D.
The four auditoriums that need to be equipped for 3-D would be theaters 8, 9, 1, and 2, since the other four are a bit smaller and can seat only 100+ people each. And don’t forget about the cost of paying to see a 3-D movie will be more than the average price, although the 3D theaters will also show 2D digital stuff. This was true for the theaters that kept the digital projection after the 3D craze came back.
On January 31 Cheech and Chong come to the Hall…
The biggest out of all these 3D films will be Monsters vs Aliens…one could play on a 3D screen and the other will play on a 2D screen. Theater #8 is a perfect choice to show 3D content…check this link out…
At this website…
there’s no mention of AMC Rockaway. Is it delayed?
Check this link out….
search for “AMC theatres” in the page and you’ll read about a drug check at the theater; security is improving quite a bit at this theater.
What’s Opera Doc is a classic Looney Tunes cartoon. I saw it during The Bugs Bunny Road Runner movie, one of a few movies that WB cooked up to renew interest in the cartoons at the theaters during the late 1970’s through late 80’s. Those cartoons are better than the ones in the 90’s, especially Space Jam and Back in Action.
I checked the AMC website, and the weekend after MLK Day will be big. Not only is AMC bringing back The Dark Knight to a regular screen and an IMAX screen (buying a ticket will also get the moviegoer a $5 concession voucher), but the Oscar nominated films will be showing as part of AMC’s annual marathon day of movies called the Best Picture Showcase. I wouldn’t be suprised if Dark Knight is one of those films. As for going to see the Dark Knight (or Watchmen) in IMAX, I would go see an early morning show during the weekend so that it’s not sold out so that I can spend some money on snacks.
I was on the online ticketing site for this theater, and at the top of the showtimes, there’s a notice…“To find a film presented in 3D, look for the "Digital 3D” description. Some locations do not have Digital 3D available". So for its midnight showings on Thursday, My Bloody Valentine will not be in 3D, just plain old 2D, on the week before the IMAX theater opens.
My favorite place to sit when I go to this theater is sitting near the guardrail above the non-stadium seats, in the middle of the row, so that I’m close to the screen as possible. However, when I sit back up to the wall, the picture is easier to see. Will the new IMAX theater have the guardrail removed? I’ve been to a regular IMAX theater and they don’t have it, just all stadium seating from top to bottom right next to the immersive screen. Tickets for the IMAX will be $3 more than the regular price.
I’m not sure, Patsy. John’s pretty busy tonight going to the Golden Globes, and I’m not sure of Kelly.
Come January 23rd, an IMAX theater will open in auditorium #13 and “The Dark Knight” will be its first movie.
This was before John Travolta’s son died.
Several new movies open at this theater….none of which will do good. January is usually a month when the focus is on award movies. Unlike last year, when there were plenty of good Oscar worthy movies and the occasional blockbuster, there are few to choose from. The thing I’m excited about is the arrival of the IMAX theater in two weeks, unless the date is changed. The closest AMC Imax theaters near me is the one in Lincoln Square, which is true IMAX, and the one in Times Square, the Empire 25, which is digital IMAX, and the one in Palisades Center, which is true IMAX.
You also misspelled BSG. It’s Galactica. BTW, the final few episodes of the remake of the TV series is coming out next week on Sci-Fi.
