@alpinedownhiller he was my favorite ticket taker he always enjoyed watching movies for free at the theater. I just saw “Everest” in real d 3d in theater #13 and that screen has 3d separation issues unlike what you see on a 3d tv or even the 3d digital imax screen. The movie was very good and the audio perfect.
Don’t forget Last Action Hero came out and was the first movie to be released in Sony Dynamic Digital Sound. Hook was supposed to be the first movie to be released but that project was postponed. It wasn’t until 1994 that AMC installed every theater with SDDS in 5.1 and 7.1 versions.
Tickets for Spectre already on sale, with Hunger Games to follow in October and Star Wars in a few weeks. The Imax is showing Everest a few weeks before it’s on other screens, with The Walk to follow. Jurassic World is still going strong more than three months after it came out..what movies had the longest engagements at this theater since it opened? I think Star Wars will break the record when it opens in 90 days.
It’s been nearly five years since this theater was remodeled. Easy to get to off of route 280 in West Orange.
they still have the clearview sign near the parking garage. I commented on AMC’s facebook page to remove it.
this winter season will mark 10 years since the last remodel…i wonder if Bowtie put in new seats in all of the screens…
Talk about competition back then….
Since the last time I wrote, stores have come and gone around this theater, with the nearby Costco location now a flooring store. This theater needs a remodeling job.
Most recently they renovated the theater and implemented reserved ticketing.
this theater needs to be renovated.
I hope so. This complex recently became the Mills at Jersey Gardens under new ownership by Simon Property Group.
actually it was only the outers that were showing movies. If it was a big movie they wouldve showed it on two or three screens. For example, Spider-Man.
most recently they removed the ticket machines near the entrance of the theater near the welcome sign so that they installed digital kiosks near the box office.
they are similiar to the gold and silver passes that AMC used before they print out their new pass system. Gold and silver passes can be used, however. This is due to the contract between AMC and Disney. I still have two movie passes that I can use.
Since the bow tie take over, instead of free movie tuesdays, they have Super Tuesdays, low prices all day.
I’m not sure….I know some theaters have better projectors as when I saw Hunger Games Catching Fire and they didn’t have a 3d polarizer in front of the projector. The picture was sharp and full resolution and the surround sound was loud along with the trailers. This was when AMC started to expand the running time of previews to 30 minutes and used their dots campaign. I saw “Mission Impossible: Rouge Nation” in IMAX one week ago on Saturday and for the first time the preshow filled the entire IMAX screen despite running a few minutes late. I saw near the guard rails on the left side of the row above the non stadium seating. The sound was great yet the picture quality was blurry in some action scenes yet some scenes had a film grain look to it. A few days later I saw Minions in one of the smaller theaters in 3D. During the preshow they showed two 3D commercials then a couple of two d trailers before amc again told me and one of my friends to put them on again although we kept wearing them. The 2d image was a bit dark yet clear despite portions of the screen (especially the bottom) cut off due to masking. As for the 3D it was good. The sound was a bit quiet yet clear. AMC needs better soundproofing in their auditoriums…also recently they won’t accept Red and Green tickets for Disney movies but they will accept AMC silver and gold passes. The tuesday I went there, it was packed because it was Stubs Appreciation Day. Morning prices on tickets all day. Also AMC has a strict card policy on younger people for R rated movies.
Shooting tonight leaves two dead during screening of Trainwreck and the gunman shot himself.
Pinnacle cos. bought the theater and will renovate it.
Looks like this chain will become an AMC again….https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=10&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CHMQFjAJahUKEwimrZCGptvGAhXHiw0KHQRyDCs&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.marketwatch.com%2Fstory%2Famc-to-add-380-theaters-in-172-million-starplex-cinemas-deal-2015-07-14&ei=EFulVablDMeXNoTksdgC&usg=AFQjCNGlb4AZ_rupFLIG0i5w3BgelkBmiw&sig2=ZiBETScYBipQQydTZoTX-A&bvm=bv.97653015,d.eXY
Will AMC Prime get the Dolby Vision treatment?
