I recall it being loud – they did add the left/right rear IMAX speakers. The IMAX here is terrible – so terrible I’m not sure how the IMAX corporation approved it. They added a “larger” screen that runs floor to ceiling but because of the shape of the auditorium that barely matters. The bigger issue I have with this auditorium is they have a poorly placed emergency exit behind the screen (you can actually see the “exit” light from any vantage point in the auditorium). Clifton Commons is another example of just how terrible AMC is – even their IMAX theaters (which should live up to a higher set of standards) are awful.

How about the dolby auditorium?

Reserved seating will be enforced at this theater starting with the release of The Kid Who Would Be King according to AMC’s website, becoming the second 16 screen theatre by AMC to get it as it approaches its 20th anniversary when it started life as a General Cinema two years before it entered bankruptcy and got bought out by AMC the year after.

Has anyone tried the dolby here yet?

I hear it’s ok. My local AMC in Rockaway has Dolby and IMAX so there’s no need to go to Clifton unless there’s an exclusive movie playing there.

Last night brie Larson surprised everyone when she went to a screening of captain marvel at this theater and introduced the film to a sold out crowd.
