I actually never went to the other theaters at this venue other than the Imax screen. I love the interior of the lobby and the digital marquee. Do they still do the laser light preshow before the Imax movie when an usher introduces the presentation? I used to like that short featuring Mr big screen that I saw twenty years ago when seeing across the sea of time. I saw l5 twice the second time the print was wearing out…it was in 1996. Never saw a 2d Imax showing. It was always sold out before reserved seating made it possible for moviegoers to pick their seats. I remember seeing a video wall near the Imax while waiting to go into the screen and wearing those bulky Imax headsets.

What’s the next Chinese language movie to be shown at this theater and why is this theater the only one in the US to be named that?

Is this theater showing its age? 20 plus years sounds like it is. They should renovate this theater much like it’s sister theater on 84th street.

Next month this theater turns 15. Back then the share price of AMC was cheap as it’s across the street competition had more summer hits than the empire which cost around a hundred million bucks to develop. Pretty soon things turned around and now the empire is the #1 theater in the USA. Next year will be ten years since AMC sold off the e walk due to antitrust rules from the merger which was a good idea.

I’m not sure….star wars was shot on 70mm Imax and 35mm film. They should keep the projector.

When did UA take over…had this theater still run it would’ve been owned by Regal. The opening of the Paramus Park movie theater this fall will mark Regal’s return to northeast NJ after selling its theaters in North Bergen to independent companies. The closest Regal is in South Plainfield as well as Pohatcong, NJ.

i agree. They often have exclusive engagements of movies before anyone else alongside major cities…the building is amazing outside when compared to the regal across the street. I remember when this theater opened in 2000 the New York Times ran an ad promoting the chain’s entry into New York City. Not only did this theater showed arthouse and mainstream fare but they had a classic movie program at the time.

How long were the trailer reels before each movie? Nowadays with digital it’s even longer.

Did the seats get renovated in the years of the opening of the theaters? I like the current seats they’ve used in the sixteen plex especially the guardrails which the old theaters lacked. The advantage of the outers and inners they had more space for disabled people. had the lease been extended for the outers they would’ve gotten luxury seats similar to morristown.

Redstone took control of Viacom in the mid 1980s while keeping the company public. Viacom would take over Paramount in the early 90s, then Blockbuster Video later on, and merged it with its former parent CBS in 1999 before breaking it up in two yet Redstone’s National Amusements still controls voting shares of both CBS and Viacom much like Dolan oversees Cablevision, AMC Networks, and MSG (soon to be split into Entertainment and Sports) and Murdoch with 21st Century Fox and News Corp. It was 25 years ago this Christmas that the infamous violence occured during the release of the third godfather movie.
