No, lots of “congs” around here, Lopatcong, Netcong, I think it’s all Native American stuff.

Just an odd sounding name didn’t know if it might have been mainly a town that refugees from Southeast Asia might have settled after the fall of South Vietnam.

This theater now has 4k projection, which gives them an advantage over Clearview’s Mansfield with their 2k projection for digital films.

LOL, Mike. Pohatcong is a town within Phillipsburg.

When this theater gets 4k projection, then it will have an advantage over Mansfield, and to a bigger extent, the Washington theaters, which have 35mm projection.

To revise what I had written early, there is no evidence of it but the layout and the mix of stadium and slope flooring leads me to believe that it was a site Magic Cinemas might had developed as well. I’ve just read Magic Cinemas developed Regal Bergen Plaza/Cineplaza (now the ghetto retailer Forman Mills) in North Bergen.

Yes. If you are not familiar with the area, Warren County is very rural. Pohatcong, however, has a booming population. It is close to Rt. 78 and had plenty of open farmland to develop.

Was this the first Warren County multiplex that opened before the Mansfield?

This theatre was built during the Regal Cinemas building craze that eventually led to the downfall of the chain. Regal Cinemas Pohatcong Cinema 12 has both stadium and sloped floor auditriums (an odd mix), and standard Regal Cinemas atompshere, there really isn’t much special about it except for the theatres, they are nice looking themselves. The hallways connecting them are dark and lifeless (simular to the Regal Bergen Plaza/Cineplaza- built roughly around the same time).

This was a new Regal construction, whereas the Northampton 14 was built by Magic Cinemas (that site has evolved a few times if I recall correctly, I remember it as an 11 theatre, but I think it may have even started with 8). This site puts up decent numbers from what I recall, it’s mostly teen hang out, probably a fun place to see Lords of Dogtown.
