Back then it was crazy for a 12 screener to be operated by AMC although it was two separate buildings with some movies opening on two or more screens in order to fulfill demand.

BTW, went to see Logan this morning at around 10:30 when during the Kong Skull island show in imax the projector broke down, forcing management to cancel the show and offer the audience a free movie pass!!! As for Logan, when the AMC logo came out the projection was windowboxed until the curtains formatted it to an almost correct ratio. I noticed near the auditorium that they had a 3d recycling bin for the glasses since the projectors were 3d ones. Image was somewhat bright and sharp when the lights were half dimmed but when the feature presentation began it looked kinda blurry. Audio was pretty good and the audience behaved. This movie will have legs. I hope the snowstorm that will affect the area doesn’t damage theaters like this one this week!!!

The harmon cove was still around when meadow 6 opened but closed as plaza 8 opened.

One of the finalists for NJ’s best movie theater.

Never mind. The Plaza 8 was said successor to the Harmon Cove quad.

Any grand opening ads? I read on new york magazine that this theater showed ET in 35mm during the summer of 1982 along with Tron in Dolby Stereo.

We all know how this story ended with star wars. One of the first theaters in NJ to be equipped with Dolby Digital Surround EX for star wars. Also one of the first to have Dolby 7.1 Surround.

As part of the rebranding, this theater will become AMC Dine-In Bridgewater Commons 7. The Fork and Screen and Cinema Suites names for each screen will be no more.

It used to be Sony Theaters when it opened in late 1993. It became Loews in 1997 a year before the Loews Cineplex merger. In 2006 it became AMC Loews and starting this year it will be just AMC East Hanover as AMC is rebranding its theaters into three: AMC, AMC Classic, and AMC Dine-In.

Some of them were big movies. Last time i went was way back in 1999 when i saw She’s All That. The audio was ok. Projection was good.

Since AMC is installing recliners in theater #8 for clifton commons' amc dolby prime, this theater is in danger of being extinct.

I think this theater and mansfield will get renovations once work is done in Parsippany.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Headquarters Theatres on Mar 1, 2017 at 7:34 pm

From 1987 to 1998 and from 2013-present. Do they still have the 70mm projection or did they throw it away? When Clearview took over they replaced pepsi with coke and when AMC came back coke was back. Lots of good movies to choose from.

Nope but my dad did. Fiddler on the Roof was the first movie to be shown in 70mm here. Dick Tracy was the last movie to play in this format here in 1990.

moviebuff82 commented about AMC Loews Paramus Route 4 Tenplex on Feb 21, 2017 at 3:24 pm

Yup. The first 70mm movie that it showed was a reissue of 2001: A Space Odyssey back in 1970. The last movie it showed in 70mm was Last Action Hero.
