I worked as a projectionist for megamovies i’ve got to give them credit and say they gave it a 100% effort in making sure that each operator provided a perfect presentation. In the larger auditoriums seeing a movie is a great experiance.
I drive by this theater nightly, the lights always turn on after dark, and the Marquee is now tagged with graffiti along with some of the doors on the building itself.
Oh I forgot to mention…this is a 10 screen theater the building says cinema 12, the strip mall sign says cinema 14, and this description says 12 as well. On the upstairs level of the building by the projection booth there is a large space that would be cut into 2 very small theaters probably 80 seats or less. They also put in the pipes in for a men/womens room on the upstairs level which is currently blocked off to the public. They have been wanting to develope the upstairs for years but right now this theater is only running with 10 screens all connected in a single hallway on the downstairs level.
With the exception of the garden state 16 I can say the Warner Quad is one of the top theaters in the area. The management takes a lot of pride in keeping this place top notch. If your in the area check this place out, some of the elements of its past still exist.
I worked here as a projectionist a few years back, being the intown theater it took off at first and is still a power house locally. I dont attend this theater anymore but i’ve got to say the GM is a great guy and works hard to keep that place alive. It is hard to work for companies who only care about the management of the theater. I think the quality of theaters like the south cove would benefit more if the owners instead of hiring alot of expendable people constantly, would just pay a few good employees a decent wage. Theater #3 the biggest house is equiped with Dolby Cp650 and a 5000w lamphouse. All the houses are equipped with big sky platters and Ernemann projector heads and DTS6AD in all theaters except #3. With stadium seating this seems like a great place to see a movie too bad they dont have a digital projector, or even digital preshows.
Theater is now running full 7 screens…visit was very pleasant, 6 dollars all shows, staff was very nice, and the popcorn was nice and fresh.
