If this theater stayed open, then it would’ve become an AMC.
I’m surprised this venue is still around.
This theater would’ve been 70 years old this coming Saturday.
What a shame this treasure was torn down for retail space unlike the Ziegfeld which is becoming a ballroom.
Do members get reserved seating?
Does this theater have reserved seating?
That theater is now AMC Universal Cinema 19 with the imax screen.
Sounds similar to the Route 4 tenplex in Paramus. Theater 1 was the big one while theater 10 was small.
This theater also borrowed the parking lot design from others like Loews in Wayne and in Secaucus.
Currently no reserved seating as of yet. Next movie will be the 2017 reboot of Ghost in the Shell.
Next year Regal will open the first ever movie theater in Paramus Park, a 10 screener with an RPX screen. This will give AMC a run for its money if it does well. They might show different movies kinda like years ago when Paramus had many theaters.
The regal in sayreville will open next year, ending a 13 year drought for movies near the driscoll bridge.
Dolby Cinema now open with Beauty and the Beast.
Imax is the best experience for big movies. Some movies that were not shot in imax are specifically formatted for imax screens such as Dr. Strange and Beauty and the Beast. This is from the full camera instead of the cropped image used for regular theatrical release. This trend has been around since Skyfall and Tron Legacy popularized it. Ghostbusters, the remake, used it comically, and can be seen in the bluray release of said film.
Mountainside also borrowed the design too.
8 screens with fewer than 40 seats each..that’s kinda small!!!
Months before the JFK assassination.
This was the last movie theater in Fort Lee until the iPic opened last year.
When Cineplex Odeon took over the older chains such as RKO-Stanley Warner-Century (owned by the Almi Group, a company known for art house movies and tv shows) as well as Brandt Theatres and Plitt, it marked a milestone for the Canadian theatre exhibitor as it expanded to other states two years after the merger of Cineplex (which owned a 14 screen theater in Beverly Hills in the USA) and Canadian Odeon theaters. It became even bigger when it merged with Sony-owned Loews Theatres 11 years later until the combined company filed for chapter 11, unlike AMC, which bought the company five years later from Onex.
Who is Elinor Bunin Munroe?
Does this theater have recliners?
@benpaz same here in Rockaway, where it’s playing Beauty and the Beast in 2d for the majority of the showtimes and 3d late at night. So far, imax beauty and the best has been selling out more than the 3d and 2d version as the imax version fills more of the screen than the widescreen version of the movie although said movie wasn’t shot on imax cameras.
At the time of its opening in 1993, it was the first and only movie theater in East Hanover, and the first Loews/Sony theater since the closure of the Loews Troy Hills in the early 90s. It was also one of the first Loews in NJ to share the Star Theatres design with others.
The outers had two screens with Dolby Stereo when it opened in 1981. It was also the far superior theater compared to the inners.
So far the theater was closed for a day and a half which isn’t bad compared to what happened during Sandy and Irene years ago. On some of the seats you can see some wear and tear. Once AMC is done with renovating East Hanover, they can move on and renovate Rockaway soon.
