Earlier today inside the mall there was a robbery at a jewelry store according to 1010 WINS. The mall was evacuated but everybody came in safely.

IMAX here is great. Huge auditorium with fantastic sound. IMAX sound system here is better than NYC Lincoln Square IMAX.

The Legacy Loews exterior signage will be removed and replaced by the AMC Brand –

I hope they do not remodel the David Rockwell designed lobby to the current AMC look, with it’s red circle lights, circle carpeting etc. Loews always had a very nice lobby design from the mid nineties on, but I always felt like they skimped out on the actual auditoriums themselves, that definitely could use some new seating, carpeting, wall curtains, side light fixtures. Also maybe they could also put a AMC MacGuffins bar where the Loews Club was originally supposed to be on the Upper Mezzanine Level.

this theater needs a remodel, badly. With every other local big theater getting something new, it’s strange this one is looked over.

This opened on August 17th, 2001. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section for this cinema.

I think with AMC’s expansion of Dolby, this could be a future dolby cinema theater. It’s got imax. Rockaway and Clifton are also other contendors imo.

Wouldn’t mind newer seats though like they got in amc west orange with leather reclining but I’m dreaming :P

I hope so. This complex recently became the Mills at Jersey Gardens under new ownership by Simon Property Group.

Went here with my wife last night to see “What If”. (Dont bother, it stunk} But the expeirience was nice. I hope AMC doesnt remodel this one and leaves the black maskings on the screens, something they just got done removing in the mountainside remodel.

Since I last spoke, this theatre once again has competition from neighboring Newark.

The Loews Jersey Gardens was designed by the New York City-based architectural firm David Rockwell & Associates.

avatar 3d directors cut coming this weekend in liemax and 3d.

moviebuff82 on May 30, 2010 at 6:45 am

That’s great news, Slimshady. That’s means more 3-D and 2-D movies along with the liemax.

geniusdj2 on May 21, 2010 at 11:03 am

going all digital in june

speaking of facebook, jersey gardens has its own page… I first noticed it when I was browsing through Lucky magazine. Back when Jersey Gardens 20 opened, there were two theaters in Newark. Now there’s one owned independently and thriving in inner Newark. The thing I like about this theater is the outside, which hasn’t changed since AMC took over in 2006. Also, how large is the mini-Imax at Jersey Gardens?

If this were facebook, and I’m sure glad it isn’t – I would hit the “like” button on that comment.

I think some people on here work for DCIP or AMC the way they talk up digital non-stop, truthfully I couldn’t care less, from a consumer end if it’s not in 3-D it really doesn’t make that much of a difference provided the theater has good operations in its booth. And if they don’t – then digital or 3-D you should go elsewhere.

Those digital projectors in multiplexes have done nothing aside from brining programed content like concerts and events, for independent cinema. Then again IFC and its cinema probably have no interest in exploring delivering indie films this way and smaller distributers don’t have the clout. It would take a distributer with a vested interest in the future of theatrical exhibition to launch a program that would make using those digital projectors actually matter, not the micro distributer sending a DVD of an obscure documentary for a screening room in the basement of an art gallery.

Digital,Digital,Digital,big deal.Whats wrong with 35 mm film?

moviebuff82 on November 15, 2009 at 12:42 pm

The next IMAX 3D movie will be Avatar, and advance tickets are on sale for that movie.

moviebuff82 on November 5, 2009 at 1:38 pm

Read somewhere online that Xmas Carol 3D will be the first movie to be shown in digital IMAX this weekend, not to mention it being also in digital 3D and 2D. It will get the IMAX 3D first, with Rockaway and Paramus soon to follow.

moviebuff82 on October 31, 2009 at 12:33 pm

what’s the latest on imax? So far, Rockaway is getting it in 3 weeks, with others to follow.

Was here yesterday afternoon – there are 20 theaters all on one floor, there is a mezzanine with top access for 8 of the largest theaters. I had been in theater 9 yesterday and sat in one of the seats intended for the VIP experience (or Loews Club as I think the Waterfront theater calls it, some theaters at 34th Street also have the same set-up). Basically they are two rows of the same seats as the rest of the theater, except they’re covered in fake leather and after every two seats there is a small table, the row is also floored with fake wood instead of vinyl tile.

The top access leads to two stair cases and an elevator – the top is somewhat finished (no bathroom in the section I was in which was odd I found). The theater still has a mini-cafe section with ice cream and that sort of thing, I think it was open but closed when I was there (AMC can’t even keep open an ice cream stand, while National Amusements keeps open a whole food court). The lay out is 10 theaters to the left, 10 to the right with a lot of theming. They’re also somewhat cheaper at $10 for a full price adult ticket.
