this theater turns 25 this holiday season. They are busy keeping some screens open and some closed. They should have reserved seating by the time all is said and done, which AMC Rockaway and others already have.

I emailed them March 8th, the SAME day their website changed about remodels. Showtimes are still full to the brim so I don’t they’ve closed any screens yet.

This is what I got back on March 8th, can’t believe it’s finally happening! I love AMC West Orange but would love a closer dine-in theater.

“Yes we are still going to remodel this location, we will have more information soon. Our Mansfield
location has started their remodel and we are next.

Please stay tuned.

Thanks"

I hope so, the place has been an utter disaster the past few years, to the point where we could not find three seats together last time we went because so many were broken. Not to mention the terrible auditorium lighting (blue & orange aisle lights shining up on the screen), lack of staff (could have walked in without paying), and general unclean facility.

According to the website today they are undergoing a remodel and please pardon their dust.

no news about a remodel in years. AMC just renovated the willowbrook mall theater down the road and cinemark is opening up later this year a mile futher. This theater needs an upgrade badly

This location is popular for showing Indian movies since Parsippany has a huge Indian American population.

This opened on December 22nd, 1994 by Nelson-Freman Theatres. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section for this cinema.

They are installing more digital projectors and dumping 35mm film. Personally I prefer the look of 35mm over digital since its much sharper on a smaller screen than a digital print. Plus I like the grainy look of it with splices and cue marks.

Name should be changed to bow tie as they now own all of the clearview cinemas. Advance tickets now on a different site instead of movie tickets.

Went to see “The Watch” in theater #3, which is sandwhich between two larger houses that have digital surround sound and probably digital projection that passed some subwoofer noises to this small screen. Presentation was film and was in good condition. Sound was mono. Theater was packed yesterday because of free movie tuesday. The Parking lot around the theater is usually full, so park near any store that’s a good walking distance away from the main complex and watch out for cars!!!

I worked concession/usher at the AMC Inner Theatre one summer while in high school, and then worked as an usher at this theatre during my first year in college. I was hired when they were just about to open and construction was to supposed to complete and was behind schedule. The opening was rushed and not all screens were complete. I remember carpeting not being finished too.

Its interesting to hear about the sound complaints. I’m particularly aware of them, because there was a dispute between the owner and the construction company over the way that the walls separating the theaters were built or insulated, which allowed sound to bleed through, that I believe led to a significant delay in the construction company being paid after it opened.

Around the corner from the ticket sales is a window that faces the concession stand. It used to be a one-way mirror from the manager’s office.

One of the coolest parts of this theatre was/is the projection area on the second floor. The door to the stairs that lead up to it are acros from the concession stand and near the manager’s office.

I remember the projection area being a “T” hallway with all the projectors openly visible. The audio was CD-based, which from reading elsewhere on this site sounds like it might have been DTS. They were a non-union projectionist shop, which meant that you could gain experience and then try to join the union. I only ever remember one projectionist, who would wonder into the theatre every now and then and then disappear up those stairs. The managers also did projection work, as needed. I really wanted to become a projectionist, but the opportunity only came as I was leaving to focus on school, and sadly couldn’t pursue it.

The son of the owner was a manager there. As was a previous manager of their Succasunna theatre. Both nice guys. I ran into the owner’s son somewhere, after I left and after they had sold the theatre. I remember him saying that they left the theatre business and went into the technology business.

Aspen Extreme and Dumb & Dumber are the earliest movies that I remember there. I remember closing every night for weeks when the last movie to “get out” was Pulp Fiction and watched the last hour of it so many times that I was able to tell how certain sequences of the movie were shot and edited.

It was probably the best, if least paid, job I’ve ever had.

Will Clearview upgrade all of the screen to digital 4k?
