thanks for the update xbs2034. After that’s done, I think AMC will renovate the other screens too and put in reserved seating.

Some of these theaters that were built are showing their age just like the 80s theaters from these same chains and are in need of renovation.

According to what I heard from the Imax twitter account, they are planning to install the laser once Suicide Squad’s run is over. I can’t wait to make the ride to NYC to see a big screen movie in laser as my local theater still uses the 2k system that most digital imaxes use.

Advance tickets now on sale for the Star Trek imax trilogy…wonder if they’ll use the 70mm projector for Into Darkness 3d like they did three years ago or stick to digital, which is easier to handle than spooling extra long film.

thanks for the update, poland626. Looks like moviegoers will have to go to Empire this weekend if this keeps up.

I know. You have to get through certain areas of the mall to get there. Some roads are blocked.

Cinerama owned RKO Stanley Warner for awhile before 1981 and showed some of their movies there. ET didn’t even play at this theater until the 2002 re-issue.

I’ve been to Jersey Gardens 20 before one of their screens became a liemax and saw my first reald 3d movie there. I never been to Hamilton, which has the same number of screens as Cherry Hill, which i also never went to. Those are in central and south jersey, respectively. In north jersey this theater is the busiest out of all the theaters in that area due to it being in a busy mall area. The parking lot on Sundays is less crowded near this place than during the rest of the week since most of the parking surrounds the theater. Finding Dory is playing in Dolby Cinema at AMC while Warcraft is still playing in IMAX 3D.

ET didn’t even play here until February 18 of 1983 in 70mm Dolby Stereo, which was the first movie to be shown that way. When was SDDS installed?

Actually it opened in late 1986 with The Mission being one of the movies shown in 70mm.

ET wasn’t shown in 70mm and, or Dolby Stereo, right? It was one of the longest running engagements at this theater, judging by reading various news clippings on Google News from New York Magazine.

With next year’s opening of Regal’s theater in Paramus Park Mall, could Bergen Town Center get a new art house theater?

March 5th, 1982, according to 70mm in New York website. Quest for Fire was playing in the big house. May 23, 1984 was when it expanded to ten screens when Temple of Doom played. When did Cineplex Odeon take over?

Had it stayed open, The Hyway would’ve faced even more competition from Regal’s first ever theater in Paramus.

ET opened at this theater and not the Route 4 Sevenplex. I wonder why? I knew when ET was reissued for the 20th anniversary it played at the Route 4 Tenplex and for its 30th it played at AMC Garden State 16. Did Universal have a contract to show movies at that venue?

Is this theater the highest grossing theater in North Jersey as well as New Jersey?

15 years ago was the last time that General Cinema ran this theater. When AMC bought the bankrupt chain, they installed some digital projectors, raised prices, changed the soda from pepsi to coke, and retrofitted a large auditorium to a digital imax, yet left some parts unchanged.

Looks like id4 resurgence will be playing in digital imax. Wonder if suicide squad will be in 2k imax 3d or perhaps they’ll wait until fall when Sully comes out in laser imax.

Looks like the imax is closed for the weekend, perhaps renovations?

moviebuff82 commented about Cineplex Odeon Route 17 Triplex on Jun 1, 2016 at 11:44 am

more than 10 years ago this theater closed down and was demolished by the time the AMC at GSP opened. What a shame, since I always went to its sister theater more often than this place. It wasn’t better kept like the tenplex and sometimes had carry over movies from Route 4 as well as new movies that played at this theater that weren’t as popular as the Tenplex. Had AMC kept this place open it would’ve been a perfect venue for IMAX, AMC Prime, et al.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Jun 1, 2016 at 11:40 am

In 1981, Coate, when RKO merged with Stanley Warner and took over operations. When Cineplex Odeon took over in 1987, they expanded to ten screens and stayed that way through the Loews Cineplex and AMC eras until it was closed so that its successor the AMC Garden State 16 opened more than 9 years ago. Digital surround sound was installed around the time that Jurassic Park opened and digital projection premiered in Paramus with the Phantom Menace in late 1999. The last time I went to this theater, for X-Men in the summer of 2000, the theater was very run down from the last time i visited in the mid to late 90s. I never went to the triplex as that wasn’t as popular as this theater.

They need to renovate this place badly. This theater, along with its sister theaters in NYC that have stadium seating that were built before the AMC Loews merger, were one of the last such places to be built before Loews Cineplex went Chapter 11 and was taken over by private equity firms.
