“Speaking of 70mm, the new indiana jones will premiere in that format”

You mean in the IMAX 70mm format, right?

It’s not really the same thing. The image size is many times greater in the Imax 70/15 horizontal format than it is in the classic 70/5 vertical pull format. To archive the same image size on the screen requires less magnification, which of course means less grain blowup, higher perceived resolution, etc.

Speaking of 70mm, the new indiana jones will premiere in that format for its world premiere over in Cannes, and will be released in 35mm and in digital on May 22. As for the previous comment, Temple of Doom came out when it was still a seven plex and was one of the last major movies to be shown on the large screens before chopped up into 10 four years later. Since the tenplex is no more, what will become of Fuddruckers?

Back when Raiders of the Lost Ark came out, that year the Route 4 became a sevenplex and still had 70mm to project that movie and its successors, Temple of Doom (still a tenplex), and Last Crusade (when it became the tenplex and was owned by CO). Out of those three indy movies, which one lasted long at this theater, and which had the best presentation?

Actually, according to an ad posted by a CT user, this theater opened in October of 1965, not when Thunderball came out. Thunderball was the first James Bond movie to play at the Route 4 theater, but not in Paramus, as older theaters in the area played Dr. No and Goldfinger. It would become the longest running film series at the Tenplex, ending with Casino Royale a few months before shutting down. Quantum of Solace will be the first James Bond movie to play at the Garden State 16. The new Indiana Jones will play at that theater, as all three movies have played in the Route 4. And the new Star Wars animated cartoon will be playing at GS16, too.

They used to have signs that mentioned Stanley Warner, and then Century’s. What plans will happend nearly a year after this place is closed?

This theatre closed as “AMC Loews Paramus Rout 4 Texplex”, although the signs on the building still read “Cineplex Odeon Route 4 Tenplex”

one other thing….the name should be changed to Route 4 Tenplex, not Loews Primus Route 4 Tenplex.

thanks for changing the status of the theater, CT. I wonder what will become of this now barren building. I guess a million people visited this theater during its 42 year run.

I may be wrong, but I would think people would be on here to talk about their great memories of this theater, not to constantly harp on its closing. What’s the point of complaining about this site’s listing of its status? I keep getting emails from this site telling me there are new posts regarding the tenplex. Every time I follow the link here, all I find are people moaning that the site hasn’t listed it as closed or discussing what new retail monstrosity should replace it. A lot of us still wish it remained open or that the land owners would change their minds about using it to put more unneeded retail space on. The new theater at the mall is horrible compared to the tenplex. Every theater there is exactly the same, no wide screens, no special feeling of being at a true theater, instead of a factory. It’s like watching a movie on a large television screen, instead of in a classic, formal theater. It’s amazing what people are content with these days. Yes, he tenplex had it’s flaws, but its positives far outweighed the negatives, even in its latter years. I spent close to thirty years enjoying the tenplex with my family and friends, it’s too bad people here just care about its closing status and dancing on its' grave. I’d love to log in here and actually read some stories about peoples' experiences at the theater over the years. In other words, let’s see some positives for once, please.

Justin just think it took just till yesterday for the National Theatre in Westwood to have it’s status change to closed/demolished. I guess seeing pictures of just the iron framework of the building helped.

Screw CT….Cinematour does a good job of tracking theaters like this, but they don’t get the popularity of Cinema Treasures!!!

I’ve sent several emails to the site’s operators about this theater, and the Rt 17 RKO Century (which is demolished). No response, no change. I’ve been doing it for months. This site’s on auto-pilot.

I’m check here right now, and it’s still “open”? Boy, this theater policy will be taking a long, long, time…it’s closed, closed, CLOSED!!!

someone at ct should update the summary of the theater, as well as the status and in the near future, what retail space the former theater will turn into. I think the size of that building would fit an organic foods market like Whole Foods or perhaps Trader Joe’s..maybe a Chuck E'Cheeses, since there’s so few of them in North Jersey (East Hanover and Wayne come to mind). Maybe a Sonic Drive-In, since the crowd over at Fuddruckers has declined since the tenplex closed!!!

That’s right. When Cineplex Odeon merged with Loews, all trailers related to Cineplex were removed and replaced by the Loews Cineplex policy trailer, featuring a crowd attending a premiere of a movie at a Loews Cineplex theater. It would soon be replaced by the filmstrip guy from AMC after AMC bought the location and relocated the movies to GSP. A clip of CO’s coliseum in space trailer can be found on Youtube. FYI, Loews Cinplex had a sibling in Europe called Yelmo Cineplex, which used the same music as Loews in the US. BTW, what will be in that old space since the theater’s gone?

It also should have its name updated to “AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex”, as this was the name of the theatre when it closed.

Unfortunately, hopes for an IMAX theater in Paramus will have to go by as the AMC in ROckaway will be the only complex in North Jersey to show the format come summer 2008; the closest theaters are in West Nyack and Lincoln Square; Jersey City only shows Omnimax films.

it’s been a few weeks since turkey day, and it’s still closed. AMC Garden State 16 is the successor to this theater, which someone working for ct will ad to the summary soon.

Status should be changed to “Closed.”

I said the same thing MONTHS ago, and even sent an email to the site “owners” via a contact us link (months ago). You can see how well they respond to their emails or maintain the site.

The June 4, 2007 link to photos of the theatre (http://s80.photobucket.com/albums/j193/photoman_1001/)no longer works. Is there another site where these photos can be viewed?

moviebuff82 on October 15, 2007 at 7:25 pm

so what’s up with the tenplex now that AMC is making money on its successor? I hope there should be a strip mall where it’s located, or maybe a concert hall since the only location nearby that has arts is the BergenPAC center in Englewood.
