Originally opened on December 16, 1998 as Regal Cinemas Bergen Plaza 13 (there wasn’t much of a plaza there- the theatre is on the lower level of a parking garage complex below a PathMark supermarket on the upper level). Opening with first run style prices most of the films shown were holdovers from the more successful Loews/Sony Secaucus locations. Less than a year after opening Regal Cinemas lowered ticket prices to 3.00. Stupidly, the company, in its over expansion campaign opened the 12-Screen Columbia Park complex (also in an enclosed parking deck) that fared slightly better than this one.
Regal Cinemas Bergen Plaza closed soon afterwards and was reopened in 2001 as Cineplaza 13. Indian movies fared well when the cinema was under Regal’s ownership and preformed well under its later ownership Cinecorp USA (also an Indian film distributer). The four largest screens (some containing 400 seats) sold out with Indian picture. The other screens were a mixed bag of alternative, independent and art programing as well as hold overs from Loews.
The area is currently over screened (Loews has 14 screens, Cineplaza 13, and Interstate Theatres Columbia Park 12, with a 25 screener on the way from Muvico at Meadowlands Xanadu…), and the Cineplaza sometimes served as an intermediate house between the Loews and Columbia Park theatres.
However, this is some of the best, most diverse movie going in the nation, the theatre was well kept (although a bit darkly lit thanks to previous owners Regal) but practically hidden. It was closed in January 2006.
