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.
The Loews 34th street along with its sister theater Kips Bay were the second to last modern day Loews stadium seating theaters to be built and not renovated; the E Walk after Regal took over, they renovated the theaters and put in an RPX screen with reclining seats and reserved seating.
Do they still have a imax light show before the movie? I remember when I went to see Across the sea of time they had such a thing. After that, they had a guy, perhaps an usher, announcing the movie and then they showed a brief film showing mr. big screen that ended with a flyover of New York City.
Very interesting. This theater in its final years didn’t do as well as the Preakness and the loews/sony/amc wayne theater.
How does this theater rank up with other Empire theaters in NJ?
The picture should be changed since it’s now a bow tie.
As of a few weeks ago, recliner seats and reserved seating are now in this theater.
When the theater first opened it was a technological marvel with all the bells and whistles of a modern multiplex. Nowadays it’s thriving but not doing as much business as the Times Square theaters. Still a good place to hold East Coast premieres now that the Ziegfeld is closed.
It’s too much. Many years ago, there were more times square cinemas than broadway theaters. Fast forward to today, and broadway is thriving while the box office is dying.
The mall in which the theater was in was featured in Volcano from 1997 in which the entire building gets destroyed by lava.
I think Rouge One will be Dolby AMC. I’ve seen commercials with the Dolby cinema at AMC logo below either Now playing or coming soon.
No 70mm anymore? Shame….
This theater opened in 1998/1999 ish. Id like to see this theater get the RPX treatment like its sister theater right across the delaware river in Easton.
Too bad there’s no theater in NJ that shows classic movies only. The Rosebud in Westwood closed down awhile ago.
Do the movies that play here carry over to that theater? I think City Cinemas should renovate the Angelika.
They should probably update it and be more like the Empire as well as 84th street. I heard that people walking from Empire to this theater will be in for a treat soon…https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=newssearch&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiS3tKep9_MAhWDWz4KHXFgCTMQqQIIHCgAMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fnymag.com%2Fdaily%2Fintelligencer%2F2016%2F05%2Fbroadway-pedestrian-plazas-getting-a-makeover.html&usg=AFQjCNFxuSRO4pvrUYGnnEFve_IXyj5UNQ&sig2=Dd3uFZTBSbNwzVkDNhvmJA&bvm=bv.122129774,d.cWw
Dolby is much sharper than digital imax. Most people know Dolby for audio than video but that will change as more 4ktvs will support Dolby Vision.
Looks like X-Men is sold out next week…according to Fandango.
X-Men will have huge grosses at this place. Outside the USA and Canada, this movie will be shown in Imax while we get Alice 2 in Imax.
profile pic changed…i love the escalator…i hope they don’t change the mural….it’s classic…
What a shame….
Was the Paramount owned by Paramount Pictures?
Warcraft is not playing in imax.
Does this theater have recliners and reserved seating?
they should renovate this place with recliners and reserved seating
