Thanks for the info Giles.
Does this theater still use SDDS?
Both of which were distributed by TWC.
I read in the NYT that this theater has 4k projection.
This theater’s proximity to Macy’s and the Garden make it a popular tourist attraction for New Yorkers.
Oh boy….they were known for showing midnight runs of popular movies during the weekends according to the ads in New York Times. Which leaves other theaters still running.
i’ve seen that in the trailers…it’s an odd aspect ratio and they converted that into 3d. The next avengers movie will be filmed in digital imax 2d for two parts. San andreas will share screen time in imax with Tomorrowland and that is a DMR blowup converted to 3D.
I think 2002 was the height of the modern box office and it was the final year that the AMC outers were open. 1989 was also a busy year i think with the inners and outers open as well as 94.
looks like tomorrowland will share time with San Andreas in imax this weekend for a few weeks until Jurassic World comes out.
Is Tomorrowland a digital imax presentation or 70mm? I think the majority of imax theaters showing it are digital.
What movie had the longest run at this venue? I think Avatar has the record.
When i first saw the picture of the Empire 25 i thought they had a movie theater inside that palace like entrance but it was transformed into a big lobby with the 25 screens to the left of the exterior.
what a shame that movies won’t be shown here anymore in the rutherford area until the 26 screen theater opens soon near the meadowlands.
I miss drive-ins…even though i never been to one. My dad used to go to this place all the time…
The organ i believe was in the central auditorium. The employees of the theater were very nice.
I doubt that this theater will survive even if Clifton Commons gets renovated by AMC soon…
I always liked the exterior of the place.
Was this the first movie theater ever built in Montclair?
i hope someone buys it since the competition is the NJPac in Newark.
Was this General Cinema’s flagship theater in NJ at the time?
according to the THX website, no theaters in NJ including this one are certified anymore. The closest one i can think of is in Franklin Mills, PA.
long before megaplexes started showing indie movies such as AMC, this theater was one of the few in NJ to screen such fare along with the Screening Zone and to a lesser extent, the Bellevue theater. The Wellmont also showed some indie movies before it became a concert hall.
go to the arclight, DonSolosan.
must be the economy. remember when AMC was rolling out every theater with the Sony 4k projectors from 2009 until 2012…that was a slow rollout. Ditto that for dolby atmos and the amc renovations.
according to the thx website, this theater was delisted from the website recently.
