This theater was the theater of choice for Tony Soprano and his family during season 2 of the sopranos (season 1 was filmed before clifton commons opened), a trend which continued to the final episode. A gift certificate featuring Tony Soprano’s name can be seen in a book about the making of the hit tv show. The show’s creator, David Chase, grew up in Clifton, NJ and filmed some scenes at this theater during non-peak hours. As for the late James Gandolfini, some of his movies have played here, including his final film, Animal Rescue, set for release in 2014, which will be the 15th anniversary of Clifton Commons' opening.

Is the Allwood closing for good, or just being renovated? It’s been around for 63 years.

Whew – that’s good. Nothing like those old neighborhood theaters. We can’t afford to lose any of them nowadays.

Has to be the worse managed theater in NJ, along with Garden State 16 in Paramus. High schoolers run the place, know nothing of a movie experience. Just went there and left. Line was so long and not even moving. Two high schoolers taking their sweet time, talking to everyone and the ticket line grew even longer. A line out the door and the manager only kept two people at the box-office. By time you got your ticket the movie would have been playing for a half hour, even with 20 minutes of previews. People were leaving the line complaining that they’ll just rent it when it comes out on-demand. This wasn’t the first time this has happened at this theater. Also, the theater workers never close the doors to the theater and all the outside noise always comes in. I’ve gotten up many times to close the doors. Complete incompetency

I liked it when it was owned by General Cinema during its later years when they had the sneak previews. When AMC took over, they added an Imax theater, raised prices, and probably removed THX reference in one auditorium.
