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.

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

speaking of facebook, jersey gardens has its own page….facebook.com/jerseygardens. 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.

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

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.

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.

This theater was the third Loews theater (following the 10 plex in Paramus and the Loews Meadow Six) to get digital projection, and was the first theater to keep the equipment. Two screens are equipped. One uses the SDDS-8 system, and another uses Dolby Digital Cinema. Driving to the place can be tricky at times, as the theater is located to the right of the mall. There are two floors in the building, 10 for each screen. This theater is located not to far from the Linden theater and just minutes from the only theater in Newark to show movies, the Screens on Springfield, which used to be a Loews until this theater opened.

This Loew’s theater is built in the same style as the Loew’s Waterfront 22 in West Homestead (Pittsburgh), PA.

just minutes from the theater there is a new 12 plex being built in linden. how far will it be from jersey gardens? it will be interesting how it stacks up to its nearest competition.

Just went to this theater a few weeks ago to see “Nightmare Before Christmas” in 3-D; it was awesome!!! The ticket line was a bit long and the food a bit salty, but the picture and sound quality are great!!! The stadium seating is huge, too!!! This is the closest theatre I went to to see a 3-D movie since going to the AMC/Loews Lincoln Square IMAX theater many times since the mid-to-late 1990’s through the early 2000’s.
