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

Look at what happened to the clifton quad.

Sorry. Wrong theater. Imagine if that thx auditorium becomes an etx atmos theater.

Theatre #9 is Imax. Is Theater #8 still thx?

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.

The only traces of General Cinema are the front of the theater with the yellow stars near the streaks and the blue banner across the sign. The digital showtimes inside the lobby are still there as well as near the left wing of the theater in green LED lights as well as the purple paint inside the building.

according to the thx website, this theater was delisted from the website recently.

15 years ago was the last time that General Cinema ran this theater. When AMC bought the bankrupt chain, they installed some digital projectors, raised prices, changed the soda from pepsi to coke, and retrofitted a large auditorium to a digital imax, yet left some parts unchanged.
