during the horrible rain storm, clifton commons had no power; that included the shopping center and the movie theater. there was flooding near it, but not as bad as in Wayne or Paramus. As for this decade, as Clifton Commons becomes all digital by 2012, the Allwood Sixplex will become obsolete, making this theater the only one in town, with the Fabian nearby, two theaters in Wayne, a five-plex in Hawthorne with digital projection in all screens, and a 14 plex in Secaucus.

Did it open that day? If so, how does it compare to the old cafe? Also, I noticed that avatar was playing on four screens with 3-D. Check my post on that other Clifton theater, which got digital projection (2-D) in that small theater and is 2k. It’s the only theater in Clifton that has Avatar in 2D.

thankfully the person who found the purse returned it to the manager to give back to the owner who left it before leaving the theater.

which means one 2k projector and two 4k projectors leaving 13 35mm projectors. Does THX still check theaters #8 and #9?

Paranormal Activity is playing at this theater on several screens. Will this theater get the IMAX treatment? The entire building is not as tall as other AMC theaters in North Jersey…so it might get 4k for all screens (i guess).

Since Rockaway got 3D, I won’t have to go back to Clifton Commons to see a 3D movie at an AMC theater..hopefully AMC upgrades the screens with 4k….does THX still check the two screens? Also I watched a report on News 12 that crime issues have increased near the theater and other stores in which cars have been stolen or broken into….thankfully I don’t go to this place as I used to in its early years.

Speaking of busy movies, which movie was the most profitable at this theater?

From what I read on Twitter, all four midnight showings of Wolverine were sold out. Pretty amazing for a theater that’s still 10 years old into its lifeline.

the first movie i saw here was you got mail, during free movie weekend. the film started with the policy ads and the first few minutes of a trailer without sound. the sound came on, although it was only dolby stereo. the next free movie i saw, star trek insurrection, was in digital. there have been a few movies that didnt have digital surround sound, such as when the phantom menace came out. back then it was out for a few weeks and i saw it with my late nana. the movie was crap, although it could have been better if the manager turned on the dolby ex system, since i went to a non-THX showing. i also read online that former newark mayor sharpe james went to this theater as well as the secaucus ones before he got busted.

Just went by the theater on my way to a knicks/76ers game, and nearly 10 years since the theater opened, there’s lots of new stores around Route 3, and the theater is still hopping.

There are still traces of General Cinema at the theater’s exterior, with the star shapes and curvy lines and the round marquee entrance. Old Popcorn Bob is nowhere to be found, only to be replaced by the AMC logo. Not too far from the theater, there are newer shopping districts around Clifton that will make traffic even more worse. And a new movie theater in Paterson will keep residents to their nearest theater, although it will be run by a much smaller chain.

During the theater’s opening, they put out free brochures about the main three surround sound systems and how they work, alongside a montly newsletter called Credits which isn’t published anymore due to it being bought by AMC. And to correct myself, this theater was one of the first in the world, not the country, to get the new sound system, which is still in use.

This theater was one of the first in the country to be equipped with the Dolby Digital Surround EX surround sound system that debuted during the release of Star Wars Episode I, even though I heard it in scratchy stereo in the non-THX auditorium. The eventual DVD release made up for that, though. I’ve seen other movies shown in EX and the surround sound is pretty good. I’ve even seen the Mummy 1 in SDDS, which was probably a 5.1 mix and had the SDDS trailer before the movie.
