AMC Dine-In Theatres Essex Green 9

Opened on October 12, 1997 this theatre contained nine new stadium seating auditoriums with digital sound and all the bells and whistles. The lobby area contained a 50-foot snack bar and a mini-cafe featuring Starbucks coffees and assorted pastries, The Soundstage Cafe.

When AMC acquired GC in 2001 the chain closed the Soundstage Cafe operation.

Theatre 1 is the largest, and is THX certified.

What a shame that AMC just does not care…and to think their major NYC theaters have problems after we all thought they would be so great…They need a major wake up call.

I agree, even with reserved seating and other amenities.

I’ve been here multiple times. I’ve reported them each time and I have emailed Amc after this recent incident. I know what theater I was in, doesn’t mean I can predict the projector working or not.

Examples I’ve experienced first hand: -Cold Food with Warm Sides -Tea that was more water than tea. Literally had no color to it -Breaded Chicken Sandwich was 3 Chicken tenders put between a Bun -Drinks arrived mid movie well after I’ve finished my food -No Salt or Pepper at all unless you ask and then are given you a small cups worth -Sticky Menus replaced with just as Sticky Menus -Broken Tables that don’t move or are complete bent so much my drink falls -And just in general Over priced for this quality

I’ve complained each time. Sometimes I get a free ticket or a “thank you for telling us” speach but nothing ever changes. Look at recent yelp and Google reviews. This isn’t a one time thing. If they want the Dine IN format to succeed they need help

heard they got new recliner seats that are smaller now. haven’t tried them yet but are really new, like within the past month type new. I bet they are like the smaller recliners in east hanover or morristown
