I’m thinking Xmas 1992 as well…I started working at the Cinema 6 January ‘92 when it was still splitting all first runs with Pond Road. I always thought (or I remember a conversation with someone) that they intended to expand the Metroplex from the beginning. I don’t remember the reasons why they started with 8 screens. It could have even had something to do with however their ownership of the 6 and Pond Rd was structured. Clearly there was no reason to keep them both open as the 6 was not in great shape. Poor construction, tons of leaks. Outdated in a lot of ways. Even though I still have really fond memories of working there…

Does anyone know the seat count for the AMC Loews (former Sony) Freehold 14 Theatre?

I’m pretty sure this opened around Christmas time 1992. Originally was an 8plex and then expanded to 14 screens in the summer of 1996, causing the Freehold Cinema 6 to become 2nd run. Before it expanded to 14 screens, the Metroplex would split up 1st run films with the Cinema 6 with the Metroplex getting the guaranteed hits. The two original bigger auditoriums in here(prior to the expansion) were THX certified.
