AMC Rockaway 16

Opened on November 17, 2006, this theatre is more advanced than its predecessor, which closed in the fall of 2002 and was replaced by a Best Buy store. A total of nearly 3,500 seats, plus stadium seating, digital surround sound, and all the amenities of the AMC franchise are in this big theatre, which is located right across from Sears and is easily visible from Route 80.

I know. Remember when showmanship was great years ago?

Advance tickets are on sale for venom in 3d regular and imax while a star is born gets the dolby treatment along with the regular version. Venom was mixed in dolby atmos as well as mastered in dolby vision so I think it’s a bit disappointing.

The seat count of this theater should be reduced on this page since Imax was installed and later dolby cut down the number of seats. I can’t wait until the imax gets renovated with new seats and laser and audio upgrades…

This weekend Bohemian Rhapsody shares the dolby cinema with Disney’s version of the Nutcracker while the Imax has the Queen movie. Suspiria is not playing here but is playing in East Hanover and in Paramus as it is a limited release movie and will expand soon based on great word of mouth. Meanwhile ticket prices continue to go up and up as well as concessions….

I have seen two movies in the past two days. Bohemian Rhapsody which played in the smaller screen with soso projection but excellent sound, and Creed II which played in one of the big screens, also with soso projection but awesome sound. The trailers keep getting longer, since AMC put in the A-List thing in the policy trailers before the movie. I like sitting all the way in the back since i get the whole picture. I can still hear the vibrations and sound bleeding from the Dolby and Imax screens, which are the loudest and brightest of all the screens. Tried out the Coke Freestyle machine with a free drink coupon from Coke and used a free coupon for a ticket and the coke zero lime is tasty but sugary near the end. They need to take care of the parking lot near the theater as snow melt can make driving through it dangerous!!

AMC is out of control with the trailers. In the good old days when a theatre was the only place to see one, two or three were a treat. Now you can see them on your phone in your seat waiting for the trailers to start. The last time I was at an AMC there were 25 minutes of trailers and wasn’t part of the digital pre-show. Unacceptable and it keeps AMC at a distance for me.

Speaking of trailers, some trailers are shown usually exclusively in theatres before making their online debut as was the case with Beale Street which i saw with Creed II before it debuted online a few days later.

If you own a Tesla car and drive it to the theater, there are tesla charging lots near the theater that were built awhile ago so u can recharge your car!!! Now only if they add reserved seating to all screens and replace the 12 year old seats with recliners for the imax and 14 screens that have the Loews seats. There’s also a Predator poster from back in October that should be replaced. Bathrooms need to be cleaned more often.

went to see both Green Book and Widows. For Widows, there was no masking resulting in some credits being cut off for several trailers, while for Green Book, which was shot in a 2.00 aspect ratio, there was masking and the picture was perfect. Unlike watching movies on regular size HDTVS, the projectors at AMC have off color balance and can be a bit blurry at times yet the sound can be very loud sometimes, causing bleeding effects into other screens. I have yet to see a movie in Dolby as I’ve seen a movie in IMAX digital 2k, Imax 70mm, imax digital 3d, reald 3d, 2k, and 4k. Today was the last day I was on the AMC Premiere list as I went back to regular. The tickets were 6.49 so it went up a bit.

While the rest of the mall is being renovated (mostly the mall building itself and not Rockaway Town Plaza where this theater is) this theater needs some renovation work besides the Dolby theater and the soon to be laser digital imax theater. I enjoy sitting all the way in the back to get a good view even though sometimes people walk in front of the screen sometimes.
