Unfavorite 5 people favorited this theater

AMC Wayne 14

Opened December 5, 1982, this evolving multiplex first had six screens containing 3,900 seats. Two more were added on November 17, 1989. In 1997 eight new screens were added with rocking chairs, all the digital sound formats, incuding SDDS, and amenities like nachos, big TVs, and special advance screenings of popular movies.

Now it’s in a tight race between Wayne and Clifton Commons, with its stadium seating and THX sound. Above all else, the Loews Wayne is still one of my favorite theatres that I haven’t been to in a while.

All 14 screens now complete. Theater is still advertised as a loews but that will change soon.

TCM screening of MY FAIR LADY today, was really looking forward to seeing it on their NEW giant screen, unfortunately, they dropped the ball again and I got ripped off. The movie was projected flat 1:85 with the panavision wide screen image letterboxed inside the flat frame, so what we got was a huge screen with this much smaller image inside the frame,…. for THIS film. They didn’t adjust the projector. I told an employee, she radioed it in but nothing came of it. AMC Wayne, Clifton do this all the time, screw up the TCM screenings, with Ben-Hur and Lawrence of Arabia coming up, I’ll skip those too. The problem is management and employees who know nothing about the full movie experience, usually on their phones. BTW…this is the 2nd time I got burned for MY FAIR LADY, the last time I saw it was at the now closed BELLEVUE in Montclair and they did the same thing. Cursed!!!

These theatres do not have the right formats programmed in on their projectors. When digital is first set up, there are all types of formats they program. One is for events. They set it up to match everything to the theatres Flat and Scope images. If this was never done, or if the settings called macros are lost (which can happen in an extreme software or hardware failure), then it reverts to a pre set ratio, which is what you saw yesterday. I always to Cinemark in Hazlet and have not had any problems yet.

What is happening with theaters #1 and #2 at the back. They seem to be for storage and are closed off. Are they going to renovate? Maybe they could use them for independent and classic film showings. YEA RIGHT!

On November 17, 1989 Loews added two screens to go to 8 screens. Can’t figure out when they eventually got to 14 screens?

Gemini Man is playing in HFR in AMC Prime. Going tonight. Wonder how it’ll compare to other premium HFR.

1997 was when they expanded to 14.

Was set to watch MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN but as the lights went down a mouse came running past me. I left the theater. Where there’s one, there’s many

next week Cinemark opens its doors so hopefully it’s a better well kept theater than this one, which is showing its age despite its renovations and expansions from the original six screens nearly 37 years ago.
