Seems that AMC knows how to deal with winter storms by closing the theater for the remaider of the day of the storm to allow plowers to clear the parking lot and the township to clear any snow near the front, sides, and back of the theater.

Went to see The Lego Movie in 2D last night…movie was entertaining and funny. The surround sound was decent and picture good quality. The Pathway to the auditorium was a bit dirty with popcorn kernels.

This weekend The Lego Movie is in 3D and every screen is digital according to fandango while renovations are being one on a few screens. The exterior of the building still has the clearview sign, right? They should put back the AMC logo near the theatres sign.

this theater is being used as a shelter for victims of the shooting as a precaution since it’s a separate building.

A shooting near the movie theater in the mall has the mall on lockdown today.

This coming weekend a hostful of Oscar nominees are back at this theater. Speaking of oscars, AMC will have the BPS next month before the awards ceremony in March. I used google search for movie tickets and found that AMC is now using Movietickets alongside Fandango for advance tickets, with the former the default for buying tickets and checking to see if it’s sold out or not. I find fandango more colorful and the mobile experience better. The website for amc’s theater is also useful too. The Imax screen in Rockaway is probably the largest in the NW section of NJ, which is great for scope movies.

Same here, GaryCohen. It’s been a long time since i went to an Imax movie there. I mostly go to my nearest theater which sadly is a Digital Imax that is not as tall as this one.

moviebuff82 commented about Why Betting on AMC Goes Beyond Movies on Jan 20, 2014 at 3:53 pm

It leaves them in the dark, although there are a few of them that have used it before, such as a theater in Dunnelen, NJ. That plus the increase in digital projection, prices, and luxury seats add a heft cost for the theater owners and to moviegoers' wallets. This is why AMC has become a leader in brining people back to the movies in a big way.

saw american hustle in theater #3 (one of the smaller auditoriums that is straight across from the men’s restroom) and while i enjoyed the movie (not as good as silver linings playbook) and its soundtrack i thought the theater dimmed the projection to save light life. One thing I noticed…the Real D recycling bin, which meant that this theater had Real D lenses. Also the masking was a bit off.

They are not a flagship theater like the amc garden state 16 with its luxurious seating, AMC ETX with Atmos, and the largest digital IMAX screen inside a 16 plex seat wide in NJ. That theater is always packed and get the indie movies first as it is with Her when it came out a few weeks ago. They also have reserved seating, which this theater doesn’t have. Also, sometimes the ticketing machines won’t work due to computer glitches.

Gravity returns to AMC in Rockaway, but in RealD 3D only, according to advance showtimes on Fandango. This is because the IMAX is showing Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit which I don’t care for. I plan on seeing American Hustle this weekend before it leaves the theaters due to its awards buzz.

Most studios will soon follow suit. I know at my local amc in rockaway with digital prints they can show more trailers than on film. This is why like 10 years from now digital will overtake 35mm film as the go to for presenting movies. That’s when the cost of upgrading screens to digital will go down.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Jan 6, 2014 at 12:30 am

saw the youtube video. Can’t believe this theater will turn 20 later this year…still the best place to see an Imax movie in the NYC tri-state area. I remember going here a few months after it opened to see Across the Sea of Time which was my first Imax 3D movie and enjoyed the presentation. Ticket prices have gone up since then but the Imax is still the same. I never go to the other screens since they show the same stuff as most multiplexes although sometimes they show exclusive engagements before wide release, such as Lone Survivor which is doing gangbusters at the box office this weekend. No wonder why this theater as well as the Ziegfield host big premieres for big movies.

Happy New Year’s Eve!!! Went to see “Smaug” in Imax 3d. While I enjoyed the movie (huge improvement over “Unexpected Journey”) I thought the action was blurry compared with the high resolution close ups of the characters despite the excellent surround sound (especially when Smuag appears on screen). Pretty weird that AMC started their main previews and trailers with the no cellphones/movie start trailer and then the welcome to amc trailer before the AMC Lone Survivor long preview followed by a few trailers. Kinda annoying when at the end of Smaug the lights brighten up before credits roll. Also some crumbs of popcorn on the row where i sat. That’s what $13 gets you, lol.

moviebuff82 commented about Superman turns 35 and more on Dec 31, 2013 at 8:42 pm

i was around five years old when Die Hard first came out. That movie i would watch later on as the fourth die hard came out i watched all three die hard movies in order. The fourth one was good but the fifth one was bad. Will not see Die Hard 6. Never saw Funny Girl, saw bits and pieces of Cleo (thought it was boring), American Graffiti was good, I’ve seen every James Bond movie, Superman I love (on par with Man of Steel). 25 years ago this holiday season i saw Land Before Time, which is the first movie i can remember seeing at the theater (dad knows it was a reissue of Snow White in 1987). 10 years ago it was Return of the King.

As a kid, I always wanted to see “Cats” on broadway based on the memorable ads on tv with the yellow cats' eyes and the footage from the musical. When I saw it on tv, i thought it was silly.

I know where TGI Friday’s is..but didn’t know that the famous Roxy theater was once in that restaurant. It’s probably one of the bigger ones in the tri-state area owned by the franchise.

Guess my New York Giants will be 12th ranked in the NFL Draft when it returns to this venue this April.
