The auditorium will open late summer according to a chat with Dolby Cinema’s chatbot on messenger.
Are there any film reels damaged?
I don’t see amc rockaway mentioned on their dolby cinema website…
With the Poconos movieplex gone, this is the only theater in town.

Is he still alive?
It wasn’t until 1993 when Loews returned to Morris County with the opening of the East Hanover 12 plex. At one point Loews was to build what would become the AMC Rockaway 16.
Reserved seating will arrive soon at this theater.
On my facebook news feed as well as twitter I’ve seen ads for Dolby Cinema at AMC Rockaway along with the featured movie which is War for the Planet of the Apes which I plan to see soon…i didn’t care for seeing it in 3d like the last one which was fine in 2d.
the digital imax version had trailers for said movies when i saw it in rockaway.
I wonder if any bugs have infested this building since it closed down; at the time of the closing, digital projection was in its infancy, imax was just a luxury, and recliners and reserved seating were only for Europeans.
They are doing road work near the mall so be aware of that, cinedelphia.
Yeah. It’s actually an hour and 40 minutes if the credits are long…
not really. At least the audio mix was good. I wonder which auditoriums have 7.1 speakers…probably the larger ones sans imax. When the dolby cinema at amc opens, it will be the first ever Dolby Atmos location in morris county if not northwest jersey. As for the 3d conversion ,it was terrible. The showtime that my dad picked was 3d by mistake. The trailers before the film were ok in 3d such as Valerian which was shot in 3d. The AMC first look in 3d was good. The 2d trailers looked fine.
add to that 30 minutes of trailers and 20 minutes of ads it’s fairly long.
Just came back from seeing Spiderman Homecoming. Very good movie although the 3d was very blurry in spots. Sound was good. They got more stuff to put in that Dolby Cinema and they have the signs up. I can’t wait…
Nowadays AMC sells gourmet food in addition to popcorn to increase sales at its theatres.
Row J is a good idea.
During the star wars reissue in 1979, the inners had dolby stereo. This reissue featured the teaser trailer to Empire Strikes Back.
Dolby moved back to August 1.
The reason why Loews State 4 closed was because of the AMC merger. AMC at the time had the busiest theater in the country (long before bedbugs took over) with the Empire 25 across the street from Loews' much larger E Walk 13 theater. It was nearly two years after Loews Cineplex sold the Astor Plaza theater before it became the Best Buy/Playstation Theatre. Regal would soon take over the EWalk and the rest is history. I remember going into the Virgin Megastore while on a trip with the Boys and Girls Club of Clifton’s teen group and looked at all the massive CD collections. I didn’t have enough money so i just browsed the store, which was more popular than the movie theater inside the store. Sadly the store became a forever 21.
For New Jersey moviegoers, in addition to AMC GS16, the AMC’s in hamilton and cherry hill will have 70mm installed for the release of this movie, making it the first time a 70mm will be played in those theatres. Surprisingly, no reserved seating for 70mm in those venues. As for the sound mix, I saw it in digital imax in rockaway and was underwhelmed. He also did this in the batman movies where surround sound and music overlapped the dialogue, unlike the home media releases where it’s fixed.
Since it’s an AMC now, expect renovations to make it more like an AMC and less a Carmike.
