When did UA take over…had this theater still run it would’ve been owned by Regal. The opening of the Paramus Park movie theater this fall will mark Regal’s return to northeast NJ after selling its theaters in North Bergen to independent companies. The closest Regal is in South Plainfield as well as Pohatcong, NJ.
Was there the surround sound trailers as well? Did u show restricted trailers before r rated movies?
American sniper was great. The way eastwood shot it on digital and mixed the surround sound was Oscar worthy. Not a big crowd as it was an early late morning show. There was complete silence after the main credits ended. This movie will have staying power.
any word on when laser projection comes to the imax theater?
i agree. They often have exclusive engagements of movies before anyone else alongside major cities…the building is amazing outside when compared to the regal across the street. I remember when this theater opened in 2000 the New York Times ran an ad promoting the chain’s entry into New York City. Not only did this theater showed arthouse and mainstream fare but they had a classic movie program at the time.
How long were the trailer reels before each movie? Nowadays with digital it’s even longer.
How about projection and surround sound and food
Did the seats get renovated in the years of the opening of the theaters? I like the current seats they’ve used in the sixteen plex especially the guardrails which the old theaters lacked. The advantage of the outers and inners they had more space for disabled people. had the lease been extended for the outers they would’ve gotten luxury seats similar to morristown.
Fifty shades is playing in Imax like no one cares about it…and Cinderella is coming out after chappie in one week. I prefer seeing a film that fills up the Imax screen rather than parts of it. I heard that Imax will increase the number of channels for sound to 11.1 from 5.1 soon and replace the current lens with lasers. No news on when a premium large format screen conversion. I’ve seen lots of ads lately promoting that.
Redstone took control of Viacom in the mid 1980s while keeping the company public. Viacom would take over Paramount in the early 90s, then Blockbuster Video later on, and merged it with its former parent CBS in 1999 before breaking it up in two yet Redstone’s National Amusements still controls voting shares of both CBS and Viacom much like Dolan oversees Cablevision, AMC Networks, and MSG (soon to be split into Entertainment and Sports) and Murdoch with 21st Century Fox and News Corp. It was 25 years ago this Christmas that the infamous violence occured during the release of the third godfather movie.
For showtimes this weekend at amc, they are showing Spongebob in 2D with spanish subtitles while they’re showing it in 3D. Both Jupiter Ascending and Seventh son will share the imax 3d screen for awhile. I plan on seeing American Sniper in 4k this weekend. This theater is getting kind of old with the seats…i hope they refurbish it with leather seats and add reserved seating like other upscale AMC theaters….
Not too far from the theater a 7 alarm fire destroyed the Avalon complex last night.
theater is closed.
How does it compare with other lie maxes like AMC?
Had a good time at the movies the presentation was good and crowd was good, my dad let AMC staff know that an elderly woman fell so they helped her get back up. Very crowded mostly because of American Sniper…parking lot was full. Work is almost done on five guys they have the road open….will likely see American Sniper in IMAX soon…
I agree. Not as packed as morristown or even Rockaway.
planning on going to see into the woods this weekend…in other news…game of thrones will be playing on the 29th in imax at this theater…i already saw those two episodes on tv so i can’t wait for the teaser to season 5….
The museum movie was great. Projection was bright and very sharp yet the film had a grainy feel to it since it was shot on digital. Minor masking on top of the screen. audio was great.

Saw hobbit in 3d thought the 3d was blurry the movie dragged on for too long. Very full house. Some good trailers especially Star Wars in converted 3d with the imax footage at the end of the millenium falcon chasing the tie fighters. Also a trailer for The Walk which is based on the Man on a Wire story. No Mad Max trailer. I plan on seeing Night at the Museum 3 soon.
Speaking of Hobbit I’ll see it in Imax 3D on my bday. Good thing tickets were preordered before hand. I’m sure it will be a bit blurry in 3d but the movie is shorter and I’ll get to see the new star wars trailer in IMAX.
you too. Here’s to a better year of box office after last year’s downer and improvements in movie technology and preserving our cinematic heritage.
Went to see mockingjay and enjoyed it. Looks like the interview poster is gone and no HFR hobbit playing.
