Just came back from seeing Mr. Peabody and Sherman in RealD3D. While i enjoyed the movie, the short film before it, and the 3d previews complete with excellent surround sound, i thought the 3d lenses were a bit separated and somewhat blurry. The ticketing machine that prints out tickets printed out the wrong movie yet the cashier was lucky to write in the correct auditorium number. Theater was very clean.

Looks like Divergent is selling out in Imax. Hopefully word of mouth is good just like other movies like that including Hunger Games.

moviebuff82 commented about "Veronica Mars" success shows people still go to the movies on Mar 20, 2014 at 12:23 pm

it seems that WB became the first major studio to follow the same pattern that Mark Cuban did, although Veronica Mars didn’t show up on HBO (now that would’ve been cool) since like HBO WB is owned by Time Warner and has shown most of Time Warner’s movie library since the 1989 merger.

12 years a slave is still playing at this theater after that oscar win. Just saw this theater featured in a USPS commercial promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2. At the end of the commercial, Spider-Man delivers the print to Stan Lee, who is the projectionist. Hahahaha!!

great article. Too bad some of these theaters are extinct or gone in the age of the megaplex.

Just checking out showtimes for this theater and looks like AMC is not showing any classic movies there still. What a shame.

Seems that AMC knows how to deal with winter storms by closing the theater for the remaider of the day of the storm to allow plowers to clear the parking lot and the township to clear any snow near the front, sides, and back of the theater.

Went to see The Lego Movie in 2D last night…movie was entertaining and funny. The surround sound was decent and picture good quality. The Pathway to the auditorium was a bit dirty with popcorn kernels.

This weekend The Lego Movie is in 3D and every screen is digital according to fandango while renovations are being one on a few screens. The exterior of the building still has the clearview sign, right? They should put back the AMC logo near the theatres sign.

this theater is being used as a shelter for victims of the shooting as a precaution since it’s a separate building.

This coming weekend a hostful of Oscar nominees are back at this theater. Speaking of oscars, AMC will have the BPS next month before the awards ceremony in March. I used google search for movie tickets and found that AMC is now using Movietickets alongside Fandango for advance tickets, with the former the default for buying tickets and checking to see if it’s sold out or not. I find fandango more colorful and the mobile experience better. The website for amc’s theater is also useful too. The Imax screen in Rockaway is probably the largest in the NW section of NJ, which is great for scope movies.

Same here, GaryCohen. It’s been a long time since i went to an Imax movie there. I mostly go to my nearest theater which sadly is a Digital Imax that is not as tall as this one.

moviebuff82 commented about Why Betting on AMC Goes Beyond Movies on Jan 20, 2014 at 7:53 am

It leaves them in the dark, although there are a few of them that have used it before, such as a theater in Dunnelen, NJ. That plus the increase in digital projection, prices, and luxury seats add a heft cost for the theater owners and to moviegoers' wallets. This is why AMC has become a leader in brining people back to the movies in a big way.

saw american hustle in theater #3 (one of the smaller auditoriums that is straight across from the men’s restroom) and while i enjoyed the movie (not as good as silver linings playbook) and its soundtrack i thought the theater dimmed the projection to save light life. One thing I noticed…the Real D recycling bin, which meant that this theater had Real D lenses. Also the masking was a bit off.

They are not a flagship theater like the amc garden state 16 with its luxurious seating, AMC ETX with Atmos, and the largest digital IMAX screen inside a 16 plex seat wide in NJ. That theater is always packed and get the indie movies first as it is with Her when it came out a few weeks ago. They also have reserved seating, which this theater doesn’t have. Also, sometimes the ticketing machines won’t work due to computer glitches.

Gravity returns to AMC in Rockaway, but in RealD 3D only, according to advance showtimes on Fandango. This is because the IMAX is showing Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit which I don’t care for. I plan on seeing American Hustle this weekend before it leaves the theaters due to its awards buzz.
