With AMC merging with Carmike at the end of the year, one of the smallest rivals to this theater will be an ally and that is the Sparta theater which is currently owned by Carmike. Maybe they’ll transfer employees from Rockaway to Sparta and vice versa…
Are all screens 4k projection with the exception of the digital IMAX?
Most tourists who go to this theater opt for the IMAX auditorium since it’s the largest screen in the area despite not showing 70mm film anymore. The reserved seating for the IMAX makes it complicated for people who want to find a good seat in the house and also the high ticket price is nothing to sneeze about.
The shape of the theater the exterior didn’t change that much. The places that surrounded the theater have changed. Usually after a movie at the Tenplex, you can go to dinner at Fuddruckers and go for a grub. The signage outside the theater also used surround sound symbols to show which movies were being shown in DTS or Dolby Digital.
MGrennille, i think Batman v Superman would greatly benefit from AMC Prime in Rockaway if they retrofit their second largest screen from the time advance tickets go on sale February 29th to the release date weekend on Good Friday, March 25. Not only that, but probably laser IMAX for Captain America would be a huge boost.
According to online reviews posted by Google users, this theater will be renovated in a few months in order for laser to be installed in the imax screen.
In addition to the one in Paramus that will open soon.
the theater is now called roy’s hall.
recently recliners were installed.
recliners were installed at this theater recently.
most recently recliners were installed at this theater when Bow Tie took over.
Cinemex is going to build a movie theater there…i heard it on facebook.
This theater is going to be 22 years old this thanksgiving holiday, its showing its age just like other Sony/Loews theaters in the country that were built in the early 90s.
Just came back from seeing Hail Caesar in auditorium #14. The picture quality was pretty good and the audio was great. I saw not too far from the back wall and could hear the rumblings from the IMAX theater….they need better soundproofing if they were to renovate this place as the 10th anniversary approaches.
cbs this morning is doing a piece on this right now, very good.
If you want to go see 70mm IMAX go to the Lefrak imax..the only place left in NYC to show real film on a giant screen.
What movie was the most famous out of all the movies to play at this theater? I say to me I think of the Star Wars movies that started with the Special Editions and continued through the prequels and then Episode VII. Sadly its sister theater in Chelsea will show Episode VIII and IX for the foreseeable future. I sadly didn’t get to go to this theater like my dad did back when movies that came out started out at this theater. He actually enjoyed watching Apocalypse Now in split surround 70mm dolby stereo on a decent size screen. I got to experience it the same way on DVD in both the original cut that was shown at this theater and the expanded version in the 70mm ratio. The bluray release of AN shows the movie in HD in its correct 35mm ratio.
Looks like Gods of Egypt won’t be in IMAX according to advance tickets sales leaving Zootopia as the next IMAX release. Deadpool takes over the IMAX as the sole release this weekend. Maybe Batman V Superman will have a laser release.
Has the filmforum shown 3d movies?
Nice black and white filter.
on the sides of the theater notice the lack of ticketing kiosks as they are located inside the box office mostly due to cold or hot weather.
I think new management ever since Wanda took over AMC a few years ago. The company is in the midst of renovating and upgrading every theater, including this one, with the latest technology. Unlike regular movies, the Fathom events require a live satellite feed, which can be problematic just in case the feed goes down. They also run on 2k projectors which is lower quality and stereo audio than a 4k projector and lossless louder audio. They also never show slides between each showing lately. I’m more excited to see Deadpool this weekend if its any good. I wonder if Star Wars will still run in digital imax if it shares the auditorium with Deadpool. We’ll see on Wednesday. Gods of Egypt will then take over on February 26th before the third Divergent movie arrives. Batman vs Superman will come out in late March after 10 Cloverfield Lane. That movie was partly shot on IMAX.
