Opened in the spring of 1999 to coincide with the release of the new “Star Wars” and “Matrix” movies, this megaplex was Clearview’s largest in the tri-state area. Located just off Route 57 and Allen Road in a busy shopping outlet, this theater has it all: stadium seating, Dolby Digital EX and DTS-ES surround sound, plenty of concessions, and online ticketing.

In June 2013 it was taken over by Bow-Tie Cinemas.

I went to a 4:40 showing of 2012. It was shown digitally, which was strange since the showtimes posted on movietickets.com didn’t say “digital presentation” save for a bunch of 3d movies and the Michael Jackson movie. As for the movie, the stadium seating portion of theater #3 was packed, leaving some moviegoers to fill some seats near the screen. Sound was good, not as loud as it was when DTS was installed before the digital projection was put into place. Picture quality was film-like, with sharpness in the titles and credits. Sound was clear, and the movie was ok with killer fx.

The Hurt Locker is playing at this theater following the Oscars. I tried to rent it on bluray but it’s on long wait from Netflix…so I might borrow a copy from a friend instead of watching it in one of the small screens. This used to be my favorite multiplex since it has quasi-stadium seating long before Rockaway came by.

This theater is closed due to the snow. It will reopen tomorrow.

Movies usually last longer at this theater than other nearby theaters. Has Clearview upgraded the digital projection at this theater and others to 4k? Would be nice to see Clearview match up with AMC, Regal, and Cinemark on showing pictures in higher than HD content.

getting into the theater’s parking lot can be a bit trickier than at the AMC in Rockaway. Not only there’s theater parking, but parking also shares with Shop-Rite and other retailers and traffic can be a hassle, with minor accidents that happen rarely. A simple way that my Dad takes me there is to take Route 517 off Route 80 (Exit 19), go south bound towards Allen Rd passing Route 46 and the streets that surround Centenary College, make a left, then make a right onto the parking lot just before Route 57 and find some ample parking. This is much faster than taking 46 to the 182/57 intersection that sometimes gets backed up.

I heard reports by facebook users that this theater is infested with bedbugs. Hope they sanitize the theater like what AMC is doing with the Empire.

Ticket prices for this theater have gone up. $11.00 for evening ticket, plus $3.50 for 3D. That’s $.50 less than what AMC charges for its customers. No wonder people are staying home and renting movies in Hackettstown.

On an ad for “There Be Dragons”, this theater is incorrectly listed as “Mansfield 16”. Oops. I read that in the New York Times' Arts and Leisure section.

Ever since the AMC in Rockaway as well as the Cinemark in Stroud Mall opened, this theater has gone downhill. Projection issues, poor staff, overpriced food, tiny screens that look like one of those vizio tvs.
