Did employees have to transfer from the inners to the outers during peak and non peak hours? Must’ve been a drive between the locations. Thankfully when AMC returned to Rockaway they managed it nicely.

If there’s one chain that might buy this theater it’s Regal. Regal has done a better job speeding up renovations of older theaters and expanding in the marketplace. Regal was the creator of the 20 minute preshow before spinning off the joint venture with AMC while still owning a part of it.

This theater will be renovated in time for a summer reopening. A Dolby Cinema at AMC screen will be there.

They plan on renovating the imax at this theater sometime this year to match that of the lincoln square imax.

Compared to the Plaza 8, the meadow 6 was the better theater.

Here’s a link to a test film that projectionists would use to soundcheck auditoriums with SDDS…https://youtu.be/TPT6kLmigik and here’s one for Dolby…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4c3NzucN9_g

I’m not sure….i first went to this theater when it was a UA theater and then a Clearview. It was the first theater to have 70mm dolby stereo in Wayne.

Great article. It took more than a year to build and open the complex. When it opened it was the largest theater in Wayne, NJ and the busiest. It’s now a popular place to catch leftover movies as well as Indian movies.

The left and right auditoriums were small and had mono sound. The middle screen was the largest and had dolby stereo and 5.1 DTS although the sound was echoey.

According to the amc theatres website go click on the link for amc prime. It’s under the New York tab.

What was the longest engagement at this theater?

This was the place to go to if you wanted to see 1982 hits such as Rocky III and The Wall in 70mm dolby stereo.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Jan 10, 2017 at 4:18 pm

It’s been nearly 10 years since this theater was closed and turned into a gym. I always liked the arcade there as it was huge. A bit noisey, but fun. The concession stand was good and the employees were great. This was the place to be in north jersey if you wanted to see Star Wars in a premium large format. Most of the country saw Star Wars in mono, which according to the makers of the movie, is the definitive mix, and 35mm projection, as the film was shot that way. Most of the original trilogy was remixed into 4.2 surround sound, with the special editions remixed into 5.1, and the prequels in 5.1 and 6.1 surround sound (episode 1 in 7.1 SDDS). Episode 1 was digitally projected in 2k months after it opened in 35mm in 1999.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Garden State 16 on Jan 10, 2017 at 4:12 pm

it’s similar to the size of the screens at other AMCs. Given its name, this theater is the top grossing in the Garden State.

I think AMC should renovate every screen with recliners but that would cost a lot of money and time for a 16 year old complex that slowly became the top grossing theater in America after a lukewarm summer in 2000.

http://www.dailyrecord.com/story/news/2017/01/05/luxury-makeover-parsippany-multiplex/96210054/ this will give rockaway a run for its money unless AMC strikes first…

moviebuff82 commented about Winter Garden Theatre on Jan 3, 2017 at 11:57 am

I think my dad went to this theater years ago when he saw Cats…i was way too young to see it as it was kinda adult for a family musical. Seeing the commercials i thought the cats looked scary and the yellow eyes filling the screen gave me nightmares. Thankfully i saw the musical on video and enjoyed it. That recording is from a London show.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Dec 22, 2016 at 11:41 am

the lincoln square imax is the closest theater to see imax with laser. Last time i went there they used 70mm imax 3d and that was in the mid to late 90s.

moviebuff82 commented about Carmike Sparta Theatre on Dec 21, 2016 at 11:42 am

Carmike is now part of AMC, so AMC will probably divest this theater to another operator as this theater is not too far away from Rockaway.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Rockaway 16 on Dec 21, 2016 at 11:41 am

Ok. With the sale of Carmike to AMC complete, there might be talk of AMC to divest this theater as well as Sparta, which is not too far away from Rockaway and the only commercial movie theater left in Sussex County (the newton theater is independently run and sometimes shows movies mostly for revivals in addition to live concerts). Not only that, but the advertising will be switched to Screenvision from NCM soon.
