With the acquisition of UCI and Odeon before its upcoming merger with Carmike, AMC’s empire in movie theaters will live up to the name of this theater.

Just came back from seeing Finding Dory in one of the larger screens, #9. The projector was kinda flickering yet the audio was excellent and the movie was good. Some of the ticket machines near the box office ran out of paper (the ones with the touch screen). Ticket prices went up a bit to $12.83.

Advance tickets now on sale for the Star Trek imax trilogy…wonder if they’ll use the 70mm projector for Into Darkness 3d like they did three years ago or stick to digital, which is easier to handle than spooling extra long film.

thanks for the update, poland626. Looks like moviegoers will have to go to Empire this weekend if this keeps up.

I know. You have to get through certain areas of the mall to get there. Some roads are blocked.

Cinerama owned RKO Stanley Warner for awhile before 1981 and showed some of their movies there. ET didn’t even play at this theater until the 2002 re-issue.

I’ve been to Jersey Gardens 20 before one of their screens became a liemax and saw my first reald 3d movie there. I never been to Hamilton, which has the same number of screens as Cherry Hill, which i also never went to. Those are in central and south jersey, respectively. In north jersey this theater is the busiest out of all the theaters in that area due to it being in a busy mall area. The parking lot on Sundays is less crowded near this place than during the rest of the week since most of the parking surrounds the theater. Finding Dory is playing in Dolby Cinema at AMC while Warcraft is still playing in IMAX 3D.

ET didn’t even play here until February 18 of 1983 in 70mm Dolby Stereo, which was the first movie to be shown that way. When was SDDS installed?

Actually it opened in late 1986 with The Mission being one of the movies shown in 70mm.

ET wasn’t shown in 70mm and, or Dolby Stereo, right? It was one of the longest running engagements at this theater, judging by reading various news clippings on Google News from New York Magazine.

With next year’s opening of Regal’s theater in Paramus Park Mall, could Bergen Town Center get a new art house theater?

March 5th, 1982, according to 70mm in New York website. Quest for Fire was playing in the big house. May 23, 1984 was when it expanded to ten screens when Temple of Doom played. When did Cineplex Odeon take over?

Had it stayed open, The Hyway would’ve faced even more competition from Regal’s first ever theater in Paramus.

ET opened at this theater and not the Route 4 Sevenplex. I wonder why? I knew when ET was reissued for the 20th anniversary it played at the Route 4 Tenplex and for its 30th it played at AMC Garden State 16. Did Universal have a contract to show movies at that venue?

Is this theater the highest grossing theater in North Jersey as well as New Jersey?

15 years ago was the last time that General Cinema ran this theater. When AMC bought the bankrupt chain, they installed some digital projectors, raised prices, changed the soda from pepsi to coke, and retrofitted a large auditorium to a digital imax, yet left some parts unchanged.

Looks like id4 resurgence will be playing in digital imax. Wonder if suicide squad will be in 2k imax 3d or perhaps they’ll wait until fall when Sully comes out in laser imax.

nothing from AMC per their facebook page. I also checked the Dolby Prime at AMC site for any news…judging from seeing the pictures of the seats on instagram they looks like they’re starting to wear out from their original color.

Checking showtimes on AMC’s website; looks like the IMAX is closed for the weekend….i wonder if they’re renovating it with laser projectors before Warcraft comes out? It will be a year since the coke freestyle machines and ticketing machines were put in effect. Finding Dory looks like its gonna be packed for the week after.

The inners were near where a fatal homicide occurred in the early 1980s that was and still is unsolved. Back then, security wasn’t as big as it is today. A 16 year old student from Morris Catholic was shot while the mall was still open.
