Too much snow on top of the roof. They removed it on top of the building with ladders.
http://gizmodo.com/imaxs-new-laser-projectors-make-me-wish-i-lived-in-a-mo-1689480610 I’m sure this theater will get this soon and maybe upgrade their 4k projectors to 8k soon
Next month this theater turns 15. Back then the share price of AMC was cheap as it’s across the street competition had more summer hits than the empire which cost around a hundred million bucks to develop. Pretty soon things turned around and now the empire is the #1 theater in the USA. Next year will be ten years since AMC sold off the e walk due to antitrust rules from the merger which was a good idea.
What was the best SDDS Presentation?
Due to too much snow on the roof this theater is temorarily closed until further notice…
What year was the busiest?
i agree. And Dolby atmos is in empire 25 and ls. Auro 11.1 is in other theaters such as regal.
I’m not sure….star wars was shot on 70mm Imax and 35mm film. They should keep the projector.
the concert hall near this theater will be renamed after David Geffen according to reports.
I’m surprised that this theater is not participating in the avengers double feature….i plan on going here to see kingsman if the weather doesn’t affect my travel plans.
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.
