Amboy Multiplex Cinemas

Located just off the Garden State Parkway as you go off the Driscoll Bridge, this theatre has been entertaining audiences in central Jersey since 1979. A sister theatre, Hazlet Multiplex Cinemas, shares the same design (I think) as this theatre.

As of 6/3/05, it is temporarily closed for a sinking ceiling, so most moviegoers would go to Hazlet. Other than that, this I think is a popular theatre.

So I’m very curious about the current plans, if any exist for the future of the cinema. I’m currently a historic preservation student in Philadelphia but I’ve lived in Perth Amboy my entire life and I can remember going to the theater all the time. Maybe there can be an effort to preserve this building before they decide to completely do away with it. Any thoughts?

Who owns this property?

Can anyone provide me with contact info?

I have an idea to revitalize this location for moviegoers.

Please post that information.

There was a full page article in the NY Times from December 13th, 1991. “Plants are wilted, floor is a bed of spilled popcorn” Admission $6.50, Medium popcorn $2.75

Drove by this place today on the way home from Red Bank. Interesting to see that someone is now vandalizing the roof top a/c units, just like what happened late in 2013 at the All Jersey Multiplex in Newark. You could also see numerous tire tracks in the snow in the unplowed parking lot. Copper must be paying a lot these days I guess.

Recently I’ve seen a few service vans around the perimeter of the parking lot; I had hoped it was an attempt to maintain the site, but as I was searching I stumbled upon I was in review of their site map and from the looks of it, the Amboy Multiplex Cinemas may not be here much longer. It is whited out of the map among the rest of the redevelopment and since regal cinemas is going to build a theater in the redevelopment area, it would seem that the multiplex would not be reused. Demolition seems to be inevitable.

That being said I would like to know if anyone would know of any way to take photos of the interior/exterior (with permission) or if anyone would happen to have more photos available. Also if I have my facts wrong please correct me. I truly do love this theater.

It makes me sad to see that the location is going to be demo’d. I have a lot of memories of that theater from when I was growing up and always wished I had the funding to try to reopen it.
