When did Star Wars A New Hope first play at the inners? I know when the outers opened they had a reissue of the original Star Wars in Dolby Stereo followed by Empire before Jedi came out, the latter would be shown again in 1985 before the special editions arrived in 1997 in digital surround sound. By 1998, the inners were closed, so Episode I and II played at the outers to moderate success. The last major blockbuster to play in the outers was Spider-Man before they shut their doors in June nearly 15 years ago. This left North Jersey with the AMC in Clifton Commons, Bridgewater, and Essex Green as the only AMCs in that area, with the AMC Empire 25 the closest and only true AMC theater in the NYC area.

Later this month will be 15 years since the Outers were closed, leaving Rockaway without a a movie theater for more than four years until AMC returned to rockaway big time. I miss those twilight specials.

During the star wars reissue in 1979, the inners had dolby stereo. This reissue featured the teaser trailer to Empire Strikes Back.

40 years ago this weekend the mall was opened. Construction on the inners would take awhile before it finally opened and became the first AMC theater in north jersey to open.

It was at these theaters that employees started to inform moviegoers about the moviewatcher rewards program around the 1990s. Advance tickets became the norm .

15 years ago this year the Best Buy opened where the outers used to be and has done good business even with Amazon ruling the roost.

Were the screens at this theater bigger or the same size as the successor theater near route 80?

Most of the seats in each complex were sloped seating, unlike the stadium seating that its successor has.

On this date 20 years ago, The Phantom Menace came out to record crowds at this theater. Back then, reserved seating was not a thing.
