moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Aug 23, 2016 at 5:12 pm

The Lincoln Square isn’t what it used to be. Sure, the IMAX makes up the bulk of the moviegoing experience as it is the largest screen in the NYC area and also the busiest. Having the laser projection installed in it will raise the price even further. Not only that, but food prices will increase. I like the old film projection as it is sharper than digital and makes it look like a bluray movie projected on a giant screen. 4k is here to stay at home and 8k is only being used on tall screens for sports arenas and the like. I’m happy with my 1080p 3d tv. heck, the 1080p 2d is better than the 3d.

It will be worth the drive to NYC to see an imax laser movie. Wonder if Fantastic Beasts will be the first one or maybe Dr. Strange?

I never been to this theater before but I heard if you drive a car to park near there, you pay like $20+ to validate your parking space so you have to keep the ticket. There are two levels in the building for each 5 screens. Prices are typical AMC.

Most of the moviegoers who frequent this theater go here for the independent movies that Morristown and Rockaway wouldn’t even show.

thanks for the update xbs2034. After that’s done, I think AMC will renovate the other screens too and put in reserved seating.

Some of these theaters that were built are showing their age just like the 80s theaters from these same chains and are in need of renovation.

According to what I heard from the Imax twitter account, they are planning to install the laser once Suicide Squad’s run is over. I can’t wait to make the ride to NYC to see a big screen movie in laser as my local theater still uses the 2k system that most digital imaxes use.

One of two remaining Bow Tie Cinemas in Morris County left.

Advance tickets now on sale for the Star Trek imax trilogy…wonder if they’ll use the 70mm projector for Into Darkness 3d like they did three years ago or stick to digital, which is easier to handle than spooling extra long film.

I know. You have to get through certain areas of the mall to get there. Some roads are blocked.

Cinerama owned RKO Stanley Warner for awhile before 1981 and showed some of their movies there. ET didn’t even play at this theater until the 2002 re-issue.

I’ve been to Jersey Gardens 20 before one of their screens became a liemax and saw my first reald 3d movie there. I never been to Hamilton, which has the same number of screens as Cherry Hill, which i also never went to. Those are in central and south jersey, respectively. In north jersey this theater is the busiest out of all the theaters in that area due to it being in a busy mall area. The parking lot on Sundays is less crowded near this place than during the rest of the week since most of the parking surrounds the theater. Finding Dory is playing in Dolby Cinema at AMC while Warcraft is still playing in IMAX 3D.

ET didn’t even play here until February 18 of 1983 in 70mm Dolby Stereo, which was the first movie to be shown that way. When was SDDS installed?

Actually it opened in late 1986 with The Mission being one of the movies shown in 70mm.

ET wasn’t shown in 70mm and, or Dolby Stereo, right? It was one of the longest running engagements at this theater, judging by reading various news clippings on Google News from New York Magazine.

With next year’s opening of Regal’s theater in Paramus Park Mall, could Bergen Town Center get a new art house theater?

March 5th, 1982, according to 70mm in New York website. Quest for Fire was playing in the big house. May 23, 1984 was when it expanded to ten screens when Temple of Doom played. When did Cineplex Odeon take over?

Had it stayed open, The Hyway would’ve faced even more competition from Regal’s first ever theater in Paramus.

ET opened at this theater and not the Route 4 Sevenplex. I wonder why? I knew when ET was reissued for the 20th anniversary it played at the Route 4 Tenplex and for its 30th it played at AMC Garden State 16. Did Universal have a contract to show movies at that venue?

Is this theater the highest grossing theater in North Jersey as well as New Jersey?

15 years ago was the last time that General Cinema ran this theater. When AMC bought the bankrupt chain, they installed some digital projectors, raised prices, changed the soda from pepsi to coke, and retrofitted a large auditorium to a digital imax, yet left some parts unchanged.

Looks like id4 resurgence will be playing in digital imax. Wonder if suicide squad will be in 2k imax 3d or perhaps they’ll wait until fall when Sully comes out in laser imax.

Looks like the imax is closed for the weekend, perhaps renovations?
