This theater is jokingly referred to as “AMC Bedbug 25” on social media due to the ongoing bedbug problems at this venue.
that’s scary….where i go they have the ac on in rockaway in all screens!!!
also Imax digital will show it in 1.9 for the imax scenes and 2.20 for the non imax shots. digital will be 2.20 with proper masking for the entire movie.
I agree. The sound mix on bluray is better than the theatrical version. Maybe I’ll wait until dunkirk hits bluray in an r rated director’s cut. 1 hour 47 minutes is too short for a nolan movie.
It will be worth the traffic to get there so I’ll take the train lol.
Dunkirk will be shown in 70mm when it opens in a few weeks.
the theater will open in two weeks just in time for Dunkirk. Tickets for the movie in all formats go on sale Friday.
What a shame….
By 1969 the apostrophe was removed and it became Loews. Under Sony ownership did it get SDDS in the theater?
One of the first theatres in the world to have stadium seating?
Do the trains still go through this building?
The rite aid might become a Walgreens due to the recent news about the aborted merger between the two companies.
Which was during the start of the tv era.
Why did they name it Kameo instead of Cameo?
How far was it from Yankee Stadium?
Like cinemascope and cinerama. Those were the biggies. Panavision didn’t even exist back then, and by the time the theater closed in 1954, vistavision was born.
What was the last movie that the RKO showed? Was it apes or 2001?
The Amboy was to central Jersey what the Route 4 and 17 theatres in paramus was to north jersey…showcase theatres that had the latest projection and sound technology to cater to a movie going audience. Sadly the theaters are no more, with this becoming an eyesore for travelers riding down the highway towards the shore at the bottom of the hill looking for a good movie or even going to the beach. I bet a lot of people will be excited to go to the movies again in Sayreville when Regal arrives there soon.
I saw Wonder Woman at theater #15 and when i came out of it after enjoying it i saw the blue christie packages. Can’t wait to try it out for the first time when the crowd dies down…it will be like when 3d first came to Rockaway as well as Imax digital.
Don’t forget the Loews 72nd street east or whatever it was called.
Even though this theater wasn’t THX-certified like others, it had the best screen and sound system in the area.
I agree. Some people hate reserved seating since you can’t change your seat after the movie begins but it’s important for AMC’s business in the future. The imax has it, and dolby will have it. Yes, the projector is christie. Also recliners too. Ever since AMC returned to Rockaway it has overfilled the parking lot near the mall and is getting more visitors than the mall itself. Malls are dying, but movie theatres are thriving in an age of netflix and tv shows.
Went to see “Cars 3” in 3d in the auditorium right next to where they’re working on the Dolby Cinema at AMC. It’s moving along pretty good. As for the movie, it was properly framed somewhat and the audio was pretty normal. The 3d was fine. Not a lot of people at the screening yesterday. Ticket prices went up a bit to around $13 for regular, which is as expensive as it gets.
Sounds interesting. I wonder if they’ll have new projection and recliner seats?
This theater is 55 years old.
