Cloudy is back in 3-D, and also a digital 2D presentation of The Stepfather remake is also in the same auditorium. This weeknd: “Xmas Carol 3D”. I read a review online that says that this theater gets bad prints of major movies. I can see why, lots of scratches, splices, and blurry prints. Thankfully I go to Rockaway instead of this theater.

They also had I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell for awhile as well as back in the 90’s controversial indie movies like Priest that were banned by religious groups. They even had protesters outside the theater for the Da Vinci Code movie, which did well despite the protests.

The Cartel is playing exclusively at this theater. It’s a movie about the state of NJ schools and was made by a NJ news reporter who used to work for Bloomberg television. One reason why East Hanover gets all the indie movies that ROckaway sometimes lacks.

One of several AMC theaters to retain the hanging LED movie showtimes above the box office (Wayne also has it and probably Ridgefield Park).

Looks I was right, the first 3-D movie to play here is “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”.

One major splice was during the trailer for “Love Happens”, in which a scene with Jennifer Aniston got sped up and cut. BTW, I checked the theater’s website and the pricing charge will be the same as Rockaway’s…$3. I would prefer going to Rockaway with its stadium seating and all digital sound rather than this dying theater, which is like every other rundown Loews theater that AMC ruined.

went to see all about steve in theater 1. sound was dolby stereo and projection was a bit blurry. minor splices during trailers.

no just one screen.

This is good news….next month Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will become the first 3D movie to play at this theater, followed by that Michael Jackson concert movie. Will it be one screen or all screens? Seems that AMC is getting Sony technology back into this former Sony theater.

sony 4k coming soon within a month

Currently on the theater’s fandago ticket site, tickets aren’t available to purchase online.

As a result, he transferred to that other AMC theater in Morris County, the rockaway location, and works there occasionally on weekends. His name is Paul Appel and lives in Rockaway.

One of my former co-workers from Employment Horizons recently lost his job at the theater because of the economy.

Some time ago this week, the theater was closed because there were police cars surrounding the building. What was going on there? I was on respite not too far from the theater and heard of the incident. After the incident was over, the theater re-opened the following day.

Later this month, this theater turns 15, and it stil draws local crowds from Florham Park/Madison/East Hanover. This theater was opened not too far from an AMC theater in Morristown, which soon became a Clearview like Madison, Livingston (closed), and Parsippany. So far, it hasn’t gone independent like Chatham, owned by Roberts, although they show indie films on a regular basis.

Check this article out…
This theater also has a Starbucks Coffee shop, although it is not in use anymore. And I read a review from one moviegoer on one of those opinion sites that the smell from theater 1 was mildewy.

The summary should be changed to AMC, since I created the listing for this theater a bit before the merger.

moviebuff82 on September 2, 2008 at 10:30 pm

this could be one of fourclose theaters where the Jets could go see a flick (the others are Clearviews in Morristown and Madison as well as the indie cinema in Chatham) if they’re not playing football. Also I read an online review of Indy 4 on Yelp and said that almost all the movie was not focused. Seems that AMC is not doing a good job of keeping those Loews theaters well kept as the AMC ones.

during my respite last week, i saw iron man in one of the theatres in the right wing of the building. sound was stereo but a bit scratched, projection was soso. theater was packed due to sex and the city. this theater is my least favorite of the amc loews theatres, alongside stroud mall. both wayne and secaucus are better than this place, although it will be sad to see kerasotes replace both theatres in secaucus, leaving behind wayne as the best choice.

Just went by the theater on my way back from CVS via MAPS on a route to pick up someone at an office building on Eagle Rock Ave. not too far from the Loews and on the marquee the movie names aren’t there anymore… says “Welcome to AMC Loews East Hanover 12. For showtimes and tickets go to or call the theater’s phone number”. Sign of the times, indeed.

I read in the Daily Record about an article regarding special improvement districts, one of which includes East Hanover. One of the improvements they mention was about creating walkways across Route 10 (ala Bridgewater) and more ramps to and from each intersection to reduce traffic and ease congestion and confusion. East Hanover’s downtown area is unique as it’s mostly businesses run by Italian Americans, especially the restaurants. Not to mention what is now Kraft Foods, a food company in a building more bigger than this theater!!! They do a good job shipping out snacks for moviegoers to eat!!! As of right now, Chester, East Hanover, Madison, Chatham, and Rockaway don’t have digital projection, but the latter will get IMAX DLP, meaning that all the smaller theaters will cease to exist, leaving the East Hanover theater to become the next theater to have up-to-date equipment.

Later this year this theater will turn 15 years old. A few years after opening in 1993, other loews locations in North Jersey adopted the Star Design, which is still in use today even with people now wearing AMC uniforms as well as the trailers. Both this theater and the Succasunna theater owned by Clearview are near the start and end of Route 10, respectively. Both have sloped down seating but Clearview has the advantage with digital projection (even though they have no morning prices). What will the next 15 years bring for this struggling theater? Only time will tell…

This theater brought more development to this town, which first got a taste of it with the opening of a Nabisco factory, and then a Novartis office, as well as a Ramada Inn and Best Buy, making the Route 10 corrider a hot spot for shopping. A chuck e'cheeses is right across from the theater, as well as a golf store and italian pizzeria joint.
