Just went by where the theatre is being built, and it looks huge!!! Any updates on when it will open?

THat’s sound cool. What has changed at the theatre since its opening in 1994?

How does the Ziegfield compare to other clearview cinemas in the tri-state area?

Is the firm responsible for building the new theatre in Rockaway TOwnsquare Mall (the building firm)?

The Clifton Public Library has some pretty good microfilm. Last time I was there, they were in pristine condition and have every issue of the times and record; I look at the arts and leisure section to read which theatres existed, and the tenplex was there since the mid 1960’s…when the tenplex closes, it will be one of the longest running theatres on a major highway of all time.

THat’s pretty cool, Bill. Too bad the giant screen that the theatre was known for was cut up into ten theatres.

By the way, Mr. Fink, when does the new theatre open? I heard rumors that it might be fall of this year…

I don’t know, Paul. Hopefully it will be open during the summer movie going season…

That’s good news for shoppers. When will the theatre open?

Just went to the theatre last weekend to see scary movie 4, and the only thing that was new was the pre-movie show called “The Clearview”, which debuted in all the clearview cinemas a few weekends ago (this happened to the parsippany location after its grand reopening). I don’t like it. It’s just 20 minutes of propaganda by Cablevision showcasing what’s new with the company. Other than that, the popcorn still tasted good, the sound was good (it was in one of the smaller auditoriums), and the picture was ok.

Just noticed that the new movie theater is up, but not open. It looks bigger than the old rockaway movie theatre that it will replace. It’s a good thing that this theatre will be run by AMC. Finally, AMC theatres will return to rockaway!!! Is it still on track for summer/fall 2006?

Just went to the theatre to see “V for Vendetta” in the same theatre in #4, back to normal, the only thing I noticed was that they cranked up the subwoofer since the theatre’s audio is Dolby Stereo; the picture was pretty good with a few splices and the sound was loud and decent. The outside marquee that says “Clearview Cinemas” is pretty nice and modern, and the popcorn was fresh and good. All in all, this cinema has improved a bit.

This theatre pulled a trailer for the new 9/11 movie, “UNited 93”. Will this hurt attendance at this top-notch theatre? On a lighter note, I used to go to the IMAX part of the theatre to see mostly Imax 3d shows. Never saw a regular film reshot in IMAX…will Superman Returns be shown in 3d at the theatre?

If you want a good example of theatre preservation, look at clearview. Not only do they restore old movie theatres, but they add more screens or renovate/upgrade them for the future, as they did with the Ziegfeld theatre and most recently the renovations of several North Jersey theatres like Succsaunna and Parsippany. Too bad the screens are not as big as those in the good old days.

I don’t know…ask the theatre manager, he might know.

With the new rockaway theatre opening sometime later this year, will this theatre survive?

I can’t wait, either, John. Clearview should call THX to evaluate their theatres (much the same way that AMC/Loews and other major chains do), especially the larger houses. Some of those theatres have crummy projection and bad sound acoustics.

Once the new rockaway theatre opens, fewer people will go to hackettstown and go to the larger rockaway theater that will have true stadium seating.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC East Hanover 12 on Mar 3, 2006 at 3:05 pm

Looks like the East Hanover theatre will be popular due to the fact that the nearby Parsippany cinema is closed for renovations. Once the theatre is reopened, it will still compete for top dollar against the Loews/AMC plex…

moviebuff82 commented about Cinepolis Parsippany on Mar 3, 2006 at 3:02 pm

With Parsippany closed for a few more days until next weekend, most residents will go to East Hanover, since they have the same number of screens as the Parsippany plex but at a lower price, as well as a tall garage parking lot and tons of shopping around Route 10. Which theatre is better, Parsippany or East Hanover? I think Parsippany is a decent choice, but I go with East Hanover for their pre-show content and large screens

moviebuff82 commented about Cinepolis Parsippany on Mar 1, 2006 at 4:04 pm

You’re right. Despite the parent company posting record profits (due to cable strength), the knicks are in a losing streak, and fewer people are going to clearview cinemas yet go to rangers games (they are on a winning streak). Maybe clearview should be spunoff into a independent theatre company…

Just checked out the listings for the theatre and now it’s closed for renovations? Why?

Just went to the theatre last afternoon to see a matinee showing of “Running Scared”…while watching the movie, I heard some booming noises outside auditorium #4; to my suprise, according to the ticket cashier, some of the staff members used a broomstick to clear some dust or something in the lobby…according to the cashier, they might add something to the windows to block the sun from blinding the workers.
