Still one the strangest theaters I’ve ever been to – went yesterday to see a film, as is the policy of Empire Cinemas they leave their theaters pitch black (I suppose they’re too cheap to install automatic lighting cues). The hallways are getting painted white and yellow. The seating is now a mix of second-hand seats from Kerasotes down the street (which recently installed luxury recliners) and rocker seating from somewhere else. The theater I was in had the later installed and they were quite comfortable. It appears despite the promise of luxury recliners that Empire Cinemas has abandoned the plan, Allwood has them in certain auditoriums (others I think got the second hand Regal seats from this theatre). Very odd operation these folks run.

This theatre has returned to playing first run, with a mix of mainstream and Indian fare.

I agree with you…the closest theater near where I live right now is the Clearview in Parsippany, where they might show a Bollywood film or two once in a while amongst a wave of blockbusters and indies. Other than that, I’m sad for those Bollywood fans missing on their favorite film on a big screen with surround sound and stadium seating, hopefully the new Xanadu might play some films of that type.

This is terrible news. It’s a real blow to variety in the multiplexes in the area. This place was the only place dedicated to Bollywood films and it’s a real shame that that was stopped. Bwood films are a ton of fun and worth the trek to see them.

check this out….no more cheesy Indian flicks playing at this theater anymore!!! This theater will once again be like the old Columbia Park 12, but show the same movies as the old Loews theaters since this theater has stadium seating and will do better business than the Secaucus theaters until the mammoth 26-screen Xanadu opens next year.

We might wana consider changing this one to reflect its current status at 10-screens. Instead of displaying a movie title above the door Theatre 1 displayed “Do Not Enter” – when I asked an usher why they weren’t using the theatre his responce was “It had burned down” apparently it had sustained some fire damange, as did the theatre located directly above it #7.
