One of the finalists for NJ’s best movie theater.
Never mind. The Plaza 8 was said successor to the Harmon Cove quad.
Any grand opening ads? I read on new york magazine that this theater showed ET in 35mm during the summer of 1982 along with Tron in Dolby Stereo.
We all know how this story ended with star wars. One of the first theaters in NJ to be equipped with Dolby Digital Surround EX for star wars. Also one of the first to have Dolby 7.1 Surround.
As part of the rebranding, this theater will become AMC Dine-In Bridgewater Commons 7. The Fork and Screen and Cinema Suites names for each screen will be no more.
It used to be Sony Theaters when it opened in late 1993. It became Loews in 1997 a year before the Loews Cineplex merger. In 2006 it became AMC Loews and starting this year it will be just AMC East Hanover as AMC is rebranding its theaters into three: AMC, AMC Classic, and AMC Dine-In.
Not to be confused with the Bellevue in Upper Montclair.
Some of them were big movies. Last time i went was way back in 1999 when i saw She’s All That. The audio was ok. Projection was good.
Since AMC is installing recliners in theater #8 for clifton commons' amc dolby prime, this theater is in danger of being extinct.
AMC correctly labeled this theater under NJ tab on amc website.
Any grand opening ads?
I think this theater and mansfield will get renovations once work is done in Parsippany.
Out of these six movies, Rocky was the most popular.
Does anyone have a grand opening ad?
From 1987 to 1998 and from 2013-present. Do they still have the 70mm projection or did they throw it away? When Clearview took over they replaced pepsi with coke and when AMC came back coke was back. Lots of good movies to choose from.
I was born a few weeks after this theater opened.
Nope but my dad did. Fiddler on the Roof was the first movie to be shown in 70mm here. Dick Tracy was the last movie to play in this format here in 1990.
Yup. The first 70mm movie that it showed was a reissue of 2001: A Space Odyssey back in 1970. The last movie it showed in 70mm was Last Action Hero.
This theater showed mostly Universal movies akin to what Cinema 35 showed during the 1980s.
This is the only single screen theater left in the County that shows mostly movies, specifically art house movies.
status should be changed to renovating since half of the screens are boarded up for renovation.
1977 was when AMC first arrived at the mall since its opening on labor day nearly 40 years ago. In 1981, the outers opened. Both theaters closed within four years of each other due to lease expirations between Simon and AMC. It wasn’t until 2004 when construction was approved for a 16 screen Loews Cineplex stadium seating theater, which was delayed until 2006 due to weather and other issues. Then AMC came in, and it became AMC Rockaway 16. Elements of Loews' signage are still there, with the font of the loews name for the numbers, the welcome sign, and the searchlights on the building. As for the last time i visited this place, I went to see Lego Batman in theater #16. The audio was crisp yet the volume was low, and the picture quality was very dim and flickering. If this theater gets renovated with recliners and reserved seating, I’ll stop going to this theater.
