Perhaps reserved seating is a good idea. Look at the Alamo Drafthouse chain. Maybe they can buy the Sunshine.
That stinks. The thing with projectionists unlike robots is that the humans have more knowledge than the machine. What if the machine breaks down during a showing and up comes an error screen? That is the case with Fathom Events which runs off satellite.
are there recliners at this venue?
Will there be reserved seating as well?
What a shame…:(
That stinks, since picking a seat will be tougher than ever and shows will sell out faster.
When I first went to this place as a movie theater I liked the old timey feel to it, despite having screens that were smaller than other theaters in the area and having fewer seats in each screen with a balcony and a lower level. I liked the organ that played before each show. Since it became a live venue, more people are going to this to experience live music and have a good time. I like the parking around this venue. While most of main street is struggling in Newton, this theater is still alive and kicking it.
AMC means higher prices.
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.
OK. It’s now a Cinepolis.
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.
