I went to this fine downtown Cinema on Aug 16th 08. WOW what a wonderful experience. The theatre has been repainted and freshened up. When you walk in you buy your ticket right behind the ticket booth is an old time candy counter.The lobby has mirrors to the right and left as you walk in.Above the mirrors is beautful gilding

Both of the cinema’s are roomy and the seating comfortable. There is even a balcony section with an old time lighted sign at the foot of the balcony.

The organ concert by John Barrata was GREAT!(FRI NIGHTS)

The town is just as nice as the theatre with great shops and restaurants! There is even a Policeman that rides a BIKE up and down the sidewalk!

Outside of town in Augusta on Rt 15 is the Chatterbox Drive In Resturant!

So I URGE ALL CINEMA TREASURES MEMBERS to GO TO NEWTON NJ AND enjoy the area for the day and CHECK OUT THE NEWTON THEATRE FOR A GREAT EVENING OF MOVIE MAGIC!

I talked to a rep at the box office today.He said that by tomorrow they will have a new schedule of shows. They will be some very big surprises in his words. See we will see hopefully they will offer some shows aimed at a more diverse population then the shows in the past.

The cinema has been closed since 2006 sadly.The owners spent $300,000 dollars fixing up this gem. Independent films and films aimed at the Hasidic community did not fly.Here is hoping someone will re-open this fine cinema.

Only 50 or so people attended the 5pm show on Sat the 19th.It was a very nice day, passover and many people go on vacation this upcoming week. So this may have accounted for the low turnout.

Their were about 130-150 for the 8pm showing for Goldfinger. Not as much as I expected but the holiday weekend and nice weather most likely played a factor.

2005 was the last year the cinema was in operation.This is a shame as each theatre was of a good size. The main theatre had 550 or so seats.

movieguy commented about Overlook Drive-In on Mar 19, 2008 at 12:59 pm

This is an EXCELLENT DRIVE IN! The screen is BIG.Trees flank both sides of the screen.In addition there are NO HOUSES,BUSINESSES around the Drive In

This makes it whisper quiet and with no light anywhere around it is pitch dark PERFECT for viewing!

I would say I got to about 75 movies a year.There is a WONDERFUL Movie theatre 15 minutes from my house, The Lafayette in Suffern NY. They still know what showmanship is! Built in 1924 with over 1000 seats and classic movies in the fall and spring on Sat morn.

I also attend the Drive In’s 4 of them within an hour or so driving distance.

Plus even tho I dislike the multi-plex’s I can get in for free on Tue at any of Clearview’s Theatres (including the Ziegfield) any other day it is $6.00. Discount tix to AMC can be had for &7.50

That status of this theatre sadly should be changed to CLOSED! I go up to the area every summer. In 2005 I saw Dark Water there.I was talking to th owner and she said they were having a tough time bringing in business. 2005 was a off year for the movies as many of you remember.

They did not re-open for 2006-or 2007.This is very upsetting as it was a very nice place to see a movie. The Lake Theatre in Indian lake NY also did not open for the 2006 and 2007 summer season.

I just spoke to an agent at the box office.There is boxing this Thursday and on April 26th a Latin concert.More events will be added by the middle of the week.

Showing older movies from the 30’s-80’s when no big events are taking place would be a good way to make $$$.Charge $6.00 and do a double feature.

They just have to get projection equipment and set up for films.

Jason you SHOULD go to the LAFAYETTE Theatre in Sufferen! On Fri and Sat night they play the organ before the ISt show of the evening.

The staff is Friendly the popcorn fresh and hot.It is truly a wonderful experience going there!

IT is worth the trip from where you live!

I have a feeling that the Newton Cinema will not be “Dark” for too much longer.I am not at liberty to say who will be taking over the operation of this fine treasure at this time.

Springtime will see the re-birth of the Newton Cinema!

movieguy commented about Rosendale Theatre on Dec 22, 2007 at 8:24 pm

This truly is a GEM! I discovered it back in 1989 when I went to SUNY New Paltz.

Movies at that time were only $2.50! Inside when you walk in there are old style candy machines that STILL WORK! Just pop in your $$$ and PULL on the handle and out pops a Milky Way!

The screen is large the floors wood and seats leather.
Popcorn is good and very inexpensive.

Admission is now a very reasonable $6.00

The town is also charming and like a trip back in time to the 1950’s

movieguy commented about New Paltz Cinema on Dec 22, 2007 at 8:02 pm

I went to many movies I was in college at SUNY NEW PALTZ. IT was a twin for a year.Movies were watchable with decent size screens.

Then they had the bright idea to make it a QUAD!

Now it has to be ONE OF THE WORST MOVIE THEATRES! The front two theatres have only 5 rows of seats with THE SMALLEST SCREENS I HAVE EVER SEEN! The sound is also sub-par.

The back screens are a tad bigger but still much smaller then they used to be.

I do not see how they stay in business !

Do yourself a favor and travel down to Rosendale just 20 minutes from New Paltz and see a film in the Rosendale Theatre a TRUE GEM!

movieguy commented about Pearl River Theater on Dec 22, 2007 at 7:47 pm

After 3+ years for trying to re-open the Pearl River Cinema, the PRDC lost the fight and the theatre will be used for retail space.

Not good for Downtown Pearl River which has fallen on hard times since BOTh theatres closed in 2000.

A victim of the HUGE MEGA MALL!!

movieguy commented about Warner Quad on Dec 18, 2007 at 8:49 pm

I just went to see I Am Legend, good film but not as good as I expected it to be.

The new leather seats were comfortable.The size of the “theatre” downstairs is not bad, screen size is decent.

Even the upstairs theatre is not a bad space.

Some of the elements that existed when the Warner was a single screen are still intact today.

I would say it is Clearview’s best cinema in Northern NJ.
