I’m on the AMC website, and there are no advance tickets for this coming friday; usually on Tuesday night or Wednesday advance tickets are on sale…see the comment i made nearly a year ago. Are they working hard on installing digital projection for all screens?

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Starplex Ridgefield Park 12 on Feb 17, 2009 at 10:31 pm

It’s my speculation. This theater is still the only theater left in Ridgefield Park after the closing of the Rialto late last year. The businesses surrounding the theater have changed, but the place hasn’t.

With the closing of the Plaza 8 and soon the Meadow Six….this theater will close down once Xanadu opens.

After the Meadow six closes, then the only Loews-style theaters that will be left are the ones without stadium seating across the hudson, especially the Lincoln Square w/ IMAX, and the ones in East Hanover, Wayne, and Ridgefield Park.

Those preshow projectors also do most of the NCM Fathom showings, which I don’t hear that much from people who go to this theater for. One reason is that they’re more expensive than regular movie tickets, although moviegoers save a lot of money when they go see a Met opera at the movies vs going to a sold out show at the opera house in NYC. Save the money and catch one on PBS for free in HD. One other thing that this theater lacks showing is sporting events, which Clearview has experimented in select theaters, as well as a large party room, which the AMC in Clifton Commons has. At least the electronic snack signs are pretty cool.

On the Clearview website, the company incorrectly says that the cinema is located in Morris Plains, not Parsippany, although the theater is near the border between that borough and the town.

the first movie i saw here was you got mail, during free movie weekend. the film started with the policy ads and the first few minutes of a trailer without sound. the sound came on, although it was only dolby stereo. the next free movie i saw, star trek insurrection, was in digital. there have been a few movies that didnt have digital surround sound, such as when the phantom menace came out. back then it was out for a few weeks and i saw it with my late nana. the movie was crap, although it could have been better if the manager turned on the dolby ex system, since i went to a non-THX showing. i also read online that former newark mayor sharpe james went to this theater as well as the secaucus ones before he got busted.

A medical building is what Fair Lawn just needs in this economy.

Those shows were sold out as I can recall….to date, it’s one of the most popular 3-d movies of all time. Good thing that AMC will wait and see until the economy improves so that it can enhance the theater again; the last new big thing at the theater was the Met HD series, which are used by the preshow projectors and aren’t technically true hd projection systems.

Just went by the theater on my way to a knicks/76ers game, and nearly 10 years since the theater opened, there’s lots of new stores around Route 3, and the theater is still hopping.

Hopefully they install it this fall and in time for the christmas movie rush this year….I’d like to see Avatar in 3D!!!

AMC also did the same thing with Rockaway as well. On the way to a Knicks/76ers game at the Garden, I was right by both theaters on Route 3 as well as Clifton Commmons, which AMC owns. Closing down the Plaza 8 is a good idea for AMC, since it should have only one theater in town to keep moviegoers busy until the opening of the 14 screen Kerasotes. BTW, I read somewhere that Xanadu might not open in August, so moviegoers in the Secaucus area will have only one new movie theater to check out that month along with a 10-year old theater in Clifton that will outlast its only smaller competition.

Just checked the showtimes and the only movie to be on two screens this weekend is Confessions of a Shopaholic, another mall movie playing at a theater near a mall. No Digital projection; hopefully they install it just in time for the Jonas Brothers concert movie.

My opinion on it is that it was a false alarm and no one was hurt.

I never been to the one in Kinnelon, but my stepmom went there when she used to live in Pequannock. I’ve been right by there, and it’s like one of those strip mall theaters that are competiting with the big ones, e.g. the AMCs in Rockaway, Wayne, and Clifton Commons. As for the Allwood sixplex, they haven’t updated it since the two larger theaters got digital surround sound systems, it might be time for that theater to close since Clifton Commons is already profitable.

Advance tickets for Watchmen are now on sale according to IMDB. It’s also the closest theater out of a few in NYC that are playing “Fanboys”, which hopefully gets a wider release next week if it does good business.

Thanks for the info, movie534. Despite those problems, I still go to this theater since it’s so close and convienient.

The showtime that was printed on the ticket stub was incorrect, too. It said 10:40 a.m. and not 4:20.

Just came back from a 4:10 showing of “Push”. The movie was ok despite some minor splices during the movie and a shortened version of the AMC feature presentation trailer as well as bad framing of the pre-show. Audience was not as crowded as expected, as most of the AMC moviegoers went to see either Coraline or oscar-nominated films. Near the advance ticketing machines, there is an outdated paper reminding moviegoers that My Bloody Valentine is not in 3-D and an outdated movie poster outside featuring The Day the Earth Stood Still, and I saw a truck putting up a poster for one of those Madea movies which I don’t care about. Next movie I’ll probably check out could be The International, and in March it will be Watchmen, hopefully in digital projection.

FYI, AMC’s main website, as well as the Moviewatcher website, is down for maintenance, but movietickets.com is still available.
