Can AMC Stubs members from the US use their cards at this theater?
http://www.newjerseyhills.com/madison_eagle/news/historic-madison-movie-theater-closes/article_c52c3756-327d-5174-8364-debc7fb744ae.html here is why….what a shame that this historic movie palace will become apartments.
I think there is increased security at London theaters like this due to yesterday’s horrible terror attack near London Bridge. On a lighter note, Wonder Woman played here as well as other european theaters before the night showings in america and canada. Belgium got the movie first on the 31st of May.
65 years ago Speilberg went to see his first movie that made him want to be a director. 35 years ago next Sunday marks the release of ET. Did this movie play at this theater?
Ok. I think the theme park is more popular than the cinema here. AMC should also renovate the Universal cinema in Orlando too.
When did RKO sell the theater?
Wonder woman is being played at this venue in 70mm according to Fandango.
I know that via amc’s website. My local amc in rockaway is getting dolby cinema soon.
it’s still among the top listed theaters on the home page of CT.
Once this theater gets recliners it will bring moviegoers away from Union square, which has the advantage of having 4dx.
Sadly there’s no single screen AMC complex in NYC anymore….
You got that right. Any eta on dolby cinema in the loews auditorium?
They should install this system in all digital imaxes.
All screens now have recliners.
They should get recliners soon like Newport.
Theater is now AMC Newport Center 11. Later this year will mark 30 years since it opened.
Theater should be changed to AMC Dine-In Menlo Park 12.
40 years ago this thursday Star Wars had its debut in Central Jersey at this venue, along with Empire in 80 and Jedi in 83. Its successor later played the special editions as well as the prequels and sequels.
40 years ago this thursday, Star Wars episode IV played here and became one of the top grossing movies at this theater. Episode V and VI also played here to packed houses in 70mm dolby stereo. 20 years after that premiere, the special editions of the trilogy played instead at the Ziegfeld theater, which played host to the prequels and the seventh star wars movie before closing down last year, making the Lafayette theater the only single screen theater in NYC area left to show another star wars movie, in that case, Rogue One.
Went to see Alien in the theater next to the imax and enjoyed it. Popcorn still tasted good. The bottom of the aspect ratio was a little cut off by the masking but that didn’t matter to the audience. Audio was good and immersive.
It was 40 years ago this thursday that Star Wars had its New Jersey premiere at this venue when it was a triplex. If someone googles Vintage Bergen on facebook, there is a post featuring a picture of people waiting in line around the block to see what would become a mainstay franchise for years to come.
The first Alien movie played at this theater nearly 38 years ago.
When star wars moved over to this theater two weeks after its run at the chinese 40 years ago this past thursday, it had to be renovated and retrofitted with 70mm dolby stereo while the chinese showed Sorcerer. Star Wars stayed at this theater until August 3rd, 1977, when it returned to the chinese with a lavish ceremony. What movie played in its place?
