New this fall at amc rockaway 16…hot fresh foods like pizza, breadsticks, and usual hot movie food to go along with an ice cold drink to cool the food down while watching very little original films…too many sequels, remakes, and movies based on true stories that we’ve seen too many times. BTW, here’s a list of movies that are coming soon to this theater that could whet your appetite… http://www.imdb.com/list/RK8Ftk4kSlU/

went to see the movie Contagion in regular 4k 2D in the smallest screen, number 12, that seats 125 patrons, and it was not that crowded. The presentation was pretty good, with fluid images and sharp text and subtitles. The soundtrack was clear and very loud. I also watched a new policy trailer that features muppets due to the new Muppet movie coming out this thanksgiving, which I can’t wait.

I went to see real steel in the liemax screen….projection was a bit soft but fluid, and it was very bright. Sound was awesome and the only trailers to fill the imax screen were those for arthur christmas, MI:4, and Immortals. Didn’t see the war horse trailer, which was dissapointing. One thing i noticed…at the end of the preshow, they had a countdown clock on the lower right corner of the screen , which became blue, and was set at 4 minutes, then the movie and trailers began.

regarding the darkness issue with moneyball…this is due to the film being shown with the 3d lenses on rather than the light fading out. AMC needs to fix these issues soon. Hopefully they improve the IMAX projection when Dark Knight Rises comes out.

Looks like according to Movietickets.com…The closest theater to have Ghostbusters will be AMC Wayne, and New Brunswick.

This coming weekend AMC will play numerous IMAX versions of popular movies from several years ago. In addition to Contagion, there will be Fast Five, Inception, and Star Trek. Most of them are blown-up versions rather than filmed in IMAX. This before real steel comes out in blown-up format. I’d save my money and see Mission Impossible 4 later this year, then wait until The Dark Knight Rises comes out, since both were partially shot in IMAX. John woo’s next movie will be filmed in IMAX, called Flying Tigers. The last movie that I saw that filled the imax screen was Tron Legacy, which was awesome. Any movie that was shot in 1.85 will fill the imax screen, and for 2.40 movies it will be bigger than the smaller screens.

I checked movietickets.com and couldn’t find advance tickets, so i asked AMC on Facebook if they’ll show Ghostbusters in 2k and 5.1 surround sound. The original GHostbusters played at the AMC 12 in 1984 and did gangbusters.

Does anyone know if Ghostbusters will be coming here in October?

Went to see Moneyball at the AMC in Rockaway, and it was great!!! Text was sharp on screen and the sound was awesome. Only thing that I noticed was that the brigtness was set at medium to allow fluid action without showing any artifacts. A sign near the lobby warns customers not to bring any chinese food to the theater. Hahahaha.

Hakuna Matata!!! The Lion King 3D and 2D digital release was number one at the box office again for the first time in 17 years, grossing nearly $30 million, beating out Contagion to second place. The last time Simba and friends invaded rockaway was when the Rockaway 12 theater opened. Thankfully Rockaway is showing the 2D HD bluray version of the film so that people with tidy pockets can see the movie the way it was meant to be seen. Advance tickets for the first part of the final chapter in the Twilight Saga go on sale in October. I can’t wait to see Moneyball in Sony 4k at this theater. I love baseball, so I’m sure I’ll check it out.

About three IMAX releases are playing at this theater on one screen, i think that’s a record. Transformers 3D, Harry Potter 7.2 3D, and Kung Fu Panda 2 3D are now showing.

The next IMAX digital showing will be Contagion, the bird flu movie. According to IMDB, it was shot on a Red camera, which means higher resolution. Speaking of IMAX, transformers 3 is being re-released in IMAX 3D for a two week run. I’ve checked showtimes for Friday and found none. Maybe AMC will publish showtimes on Friday. I went to see 30 minutes or less in 4k two nights ago. Although I came in a bit late with my friend to see the movie, i sat a bit close to the screen. The photography was a bit blurry, but the credits were sharp at the end. Sound was great too.

Conan 3D, Spy Kids 3D (in smellovision), and Fright Night 3D are all playing at this theater. Too much 3D movies….lol

Looks like AMC will equip more screens with Real D 3D soon, about 1,000 screens. This means more dizzying viewers will experience very blurry 3D.

Ur Welcome Alex. JJD, what’s up? Any word on when ETX comes to AMC? It would be great if AMC removed the liemax and installed the ETX in their screen. Either that, or they can use Theater 9 for that.

Non-movie showing includes Met in HD events, sporting events, and Fathom Events. If you use an AMC gift ticket, then you have to pay the extra fee.

What does this mean, “AMC will add a surcharge for non-movie showing?” This doesn’t make sense to me.

Starting in August, AMC will add a surcharge for non-movie showings. Just saw that while waiting in line for Harry Potter 7.2 3d, which wasn’t great in 3d. The trailers were pretty good in 3d, especially Happy Feet Two. This coming weekend, Harry Potter 7.2 will still be playing in IMAX 3D while Harry Potter will be shown in 2D digital projection, which I think is the way to see it. I’m planning on seeing Cowboys vs Aliens in a few weeks…hopefully it’s good surround sound busting, giant blurry screen fun. Now only if AMC can get new lenses, since they have been in use since AMC opened nearly 5 years ago.
