Edgewater Multiplex Cinemas

Edgewater Multiplex Cinemas opened on December 15, 2000. This 16 screen National Amusements cinema on the Hudson River contains all stadium seating, digital sound, and the “Movie Walk Cafe” which offers pizza, hot dogs, hand-cut fries, fried dough and ice cream. It’s recently been expanded on with a Nathans and a Sbarro Pizzeria.

Opening night features were “What Women Want”, “Emperor’s New Groove”, “Vertical Limit”, “Proof of Life”, “Dungeons and Dragons”, “102 Dalmations”, “The Grinch”, “Best in Show”, “Meet The Parents”, “Bounce”, and “Remember the Titans”. The opening of this cinema forced the Loews Showboat down the street to consider changing its booking format to show art films, however Loews closed the site before the end of the first quarter, 2001. The Edgewater Multiplex Cinemas closed on November 13, 2018.

Heard they are building condos on the theater site. Not sure if their lease ended on it’s own or if the landlord bought out their lease…

With the closing of this theatre, are there any National Amusements/Showcase cinemas left in New jersey?

Yes. The Hazlet cinemas is the only one i can think of that became a rave cinema and now a Cinemark with recliners. The Amboy cinemas still remains but it’s barren, and the All Jersey cinemas is gone in Newark.

moviebuff82, I was more asking if there are any still operating as NA/showcase cinemas.

This was one of my family’s favorite venues. Attended many films here. And the true shame (and perhaps I’m being a bit naive, here) is that you have a beautiful building designed specifically for film that (if rumors are true)will probably be retooled for condos (just what we need more condos!!) It’s a wonder to me that the town of Edgewater could not (or would not), seemingly support this theater with their regular attendence. Perhaps another theater chain might look into this wonderful location!
