BTW, the new Tom Cruise movie will open 5 days before being shown in sharper digital projection in normal theaters. The next 3d movie to come out will be Tintin, which has been out for some time in Europe and enjoying a huge success. I grew up with Tintin from watching the HBO cartoon as well as the 1960’s dubbed series, so hopefully this one is pretty good.

Yup. I hope they improve the IMAX theater’s projection.

Last week on tuesday night went to a screening of “The Muppets” in one of the big auditoriums. It wasn’t that crowded. Presentation was pretty good and the surround sound was awesome. One minor thing that I didn’t like was that were was a crying baby during the show. The Toy Story short was pretty funny.

Went to see Twilight 4.1 last night at a packed house in Rockaway. The presentation was pretty good for a digital movie, especially the special effects. Sound was great, and the audience behaved great.

advance tickets are now on sale for several big december releases, including Girl with Dragon Tattoo and War Horse. My Week with Marilyn is now playing, as well as The Descendants, alongside Muppets as well as Hugo in 3D as well as Arthur Xmas in 3D. The next IMAX movie to play will be MI: 4. Some of the scenes in that movie were shot with imax cameras. The trailer for Dark Knight Rises will be shown with Sherlock Holmes 2 the same day that the prologue will be attached to 70mm IMAX prints of MI: GP.

Happy 5th anniversary, AMC Rockaway 16!!! Here’s to the next 5 years, if this theater still does good business.

moviebuff82 on November 15, 2011 at 8:47 pm

This weekend, Happy Feet Two is in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D. The new twilight movie is on multiple screens. Next weekend, Hugo and Arthur Xmas come out in 3D and the Muppets are back. I read on IMDB that the Muppets were shot in 4.5k on the Red Epic One camera, just like Contagion.

Harold and Kumar is showing on two 3D screens, Puss in Boots is showing on one 3D screen and one imax 3d screen. Tower Heist is on two screens. No ticket price change yet. Maybe by the holidays it will go up to $11.50….

Advance tickets now on sale for Harold and Kumar 3D Xmas…which looks kinda silly but should be a hoot. Tomorrow snow comes to Rockaway which will affect the theater, as there’s a sold out performance of Don Giovanni (Met) that day.

moviebuff82 on October 26, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Opening this friday at this theater, Anonymous, In Time (on two screens), Puss in Boots in three flavors (digital 2D, 3D, and Imax 3D), and The Rum Diary. Next week Tower Heist opens, and two weeks from that Twilight 4.1 opens.

New this fall at amc rockaway 16…hot fresh foods like pizza, breadsticks, and usual hot movie food to go along with an ice cold drink to cool the food down while watching very little original films…too many sequels, remakes, and movies based on true stories that we’ve seen too many times. BTW, here’s a list of movies that are coming soon to this theater that could whet your appetite…

moviebuff82 on October 12, 2011 at 7:28 pm

went to see the movie Contagion in regular 4k 2D in the smallest screen, number 12, that seats 125 patrons, and it was not that crowded. The presentation was pretty good, with fluid images and sharp text and subtitles. The soundtrack was clear and very loud. I also watched a new policy trailer that features muppets due to the new Muppet movie coming out this thanksgiving, which I can’t wait.

moviebuff82 on October 12, 2011 at 2:19 pm

advance tickets on sale for puss in boots 2d, 3d, and liemax.

moviebuff82 on October 12, 2011 at 2:18 pm

ghostbusters is playing in rockaway after all.

moviebuff82 on October 10, 2011 at 7:21 pm

I went to see real steel in the liemax screen….projection was a bit soft but fluid, and it was very bright. Sound was awesome and the only trailers to fill the imax screen were those for arthur christmas, MI:4, and Immortals. Didn’t see the war horse trailer, which was dissapointing. One thing i noticed…at the end of the preshow, they had a countdown clock on the lower right corner of the screen , which became blue, and was set at 4 minutes, then the movie and trailers began.

regarding the darkness issue with moneyball…this is due to the film being shown with the 3d lenses on rather than the light fading out. AMC needs to fix these issues soon. Hopefully they improve the IMAX projection when Dark Knight Rises comes out.

moviebuff82 on October 1, 2011 at 9:33 am

advance tickets for the twilight movie are on sale. They are selling out quickly.

MGrennille on September 30, 2011 at 11:29 pm

Looks like according to…The closest theater to have Ghostbusters will be AMC Wayne, and New Brunswick.

moviebuff82 on September 28, 2011 at 1:48 pm

This coming weekend AMC will play numerous IMAX versions of popular movies from several years ago. In addition to Contagion, there will be Fast Five, Inception, and Star Trek. Most of them are blown-up versions rather than filmed in IMAX. This before real steel comes out in blown-up format. I’d save my money and see Mission Impossible 4 later this year, then wait until The Dark Knight Rises comes out, since both were partially shot in IMAX. John woo’s next movie will be filmed in IMAX, called Flying Tigers. The last movie that I saw that filled the imax screen was Tron Legacy, which was awesome. Any movie that was shot in 1.85 will fill the imax screen, and for 2.40 movies it will be bigger than the smaller screens.

moviebuff82 on September 26, 2011 at 2:11 pm

I checked and couldn’t find advance tickets, so i asked AMC on Facebook if they’ll show Ghostbusters in 2k and 5.1 surround sound. The original GHostbusters played at the AMC 12 in 1984 and did gangbusters.

MGrennille on September 25, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Does anyone know if Ghostbusters will be coming here in October?

moviebuff82 on September 24, 2011 at 9:27 am

Went to see Moneyball at the AMC in Rockaway, and it was great!!! Text was sharp on screen and the sound was awesome. Only thing that I noticed was that the brigtness was set at medium to allow fluid action without showing any artifacts. A sign near the lobby warns customers not to bring any chinese food to the theater. Hahahaha.

moviebuff82 on September 18, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Hakuna Matata!!! The Lion King 3D and 2D digital release was number one at the box office again for the first time in 17 years, grossing nearly $30 million, beating out Contagion to second place. The last time Simba and friends invaded rockaway was when the Rockaway 12 theater opened. Thankfully Rockaway is showing the 2D HD bluray version of the film so that people with tidy pockets can see the movie the way it was meant to be seen. Advance tickets for the first part of the final chapter in the Twilight Saga go on sale in October. I can’t wait to see Moneyball in Sony 4k at this theater. I love baseball, so I’m sure I’ll check it out.

moviebuff82 on September 3, 2011 at 12:53 pm

About three IMAX releases are playing at this theater on one screen, i think that’s a record. Transformers 3D, Harry Potter 7.2 3D, and Kung Fu Panda 2 3D are now showing.
