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 are due to closed November 13, 2018.

Interstellar is playing in 35mm at this theater in addition to the X Plus Atmos digital version. X Plus was installed in one of the theaters a few years ago.

Not too far from the theater a 7 alarm fire destroyed the Avalon complex last night.

I noticed tonight Theater #8 has a 35MM projector installed along side a Sony 4K projector (platter, not reel to reel which essentially means archival prints will will not screen here). Theater #8 was one of the first in the state to feature digital projection, a few years before 3D became the driver that it was in the conversion of analog screens. (I don’t recall what system they had but National Amusements mostly standardized on Sony 4K when the circuit converted – I believe Barco supplies the tech for XPlus).

The presentation is still excellent across the board and Edgewater’s flagship XPlus auditorium has been reseated with recliners.

John, I think National left one or two houses equipped with 35mm, just in case. I worked for an independant who did the same thing when he converted. And at the Count Basie where I am projectionist, we have a christie digital and our 2 simplex reel to reel projectors. I made sure they didnt remove then.

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…
