Originally a big screen movie theatre, the Allwood is still the only remaining small theater in a town that now has a 16 screen multiplex owned by AMC, which makes more money than this local cinema. Two auditoriums have digital sound, while the others have Dolby Stereo and mono sound. Still a cheap way to go to the movies, and easier now that online ticketing is available. The Allwood Cinemas 6 was closed by Clearview Cinemas on May 19, 2013.

It was reopened by Empire Cineplex Cinemas on June 21, 2013.

Good news is they’ve signed a lease with a new operator! (Unnamed but they operate several theaters throughout the country….I have a guess….)

they even have a facebook page too. All screens now digital, both picture and sound, though there’s no 3d projection.

All digital but did they change the architecture. This is a horrible theater. The two theaters in the front are like sitting in a basement. The others are just as bad. Haven’t been there in 10 years and plan to never go back.

Visited yesterday for Hercules – the good: it was clean and leather recliners. The Bad: yes, they’ve gone digital (no 3D but thats no deal breaker for me) but they never bothered to replace the glass in the projection booth – so in at least two auditoriums you’ll see a dark line running down the frame at some point. The picture was ¼th dark and out of focus – not acceptable (at least two others walked out along with me). The reason the management gave “the owners are working on it”.

Otherwise with a little more fixing up it could be great – they need new wall treatments (the one in the theater I was in had water damage), new glass in the booths and an automated lighting system that doesn’t leave the theaters dangerously pitch black between screenings – – and then the place would be fine.

This place went through a cheap renovation. You see the wires for the recliners stick out and a post where you plugged in the recliners. You see the footprint of the former row of seats. The just touch up rather than to paint the floor.

I doubt that this theater will survive even if Clifton Commons gets renovated by AMC soon…

Saw “Still Alice” last winter. The theater looked like a messy room with stuff laying all over the floor. The theater had a dank, dark atmosphere and there was a lot of noise throughout the film (air blower?) Not a good theater but for the neighborhood I’m sure it works. This theater is still up and running
