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.

Saw Titanic and the Dolby 4K presentation is pretty incredible. It was a long time ago, but I don’t recall seeing nearly this level of detail back in 1997 when I saw it here. The Dolby screen is also a good deal larger than the largest screen they had back in 1997.

Lines a bit shorter though haha. They were insane in 1997 here! Week after week wrapped way around the outer mall, way back, on some days almost all the way around to the far end of the back, crazy. Nothing ever like that other than for Star Wars.

The HDR was pretty good too, I don’t think the film version had quite this ability back then. Maybe some of the dark scenes at the end had some brighter areas seeming a little too bright, but whatever. Mostly it was all spectacular presentation all-around every which way. Maybe those who saw it in 70mm back when had something beginning to be like this, but this seems way beyond what I recall seeing in the 1997 original film release or later digital re-release. It did make it almost feel a little like it was something you hadn’t seen before (although maybe for those who did manage to see it in 70mm the difference would not be quite as huge, by ‘97 70mm was already pretty rare).

When I saw titanic back in 97 the loews in wayne was mobbed and I enjoyed it . Projection was good and sound excellent. Ill wait until it hits 4k blu ray soon as I own the 1999 DVD.

Starting with the opening of the last jedi, this theater is now selling merchandise in their AMC Store.

Do they take cash or credit? How about wooden nickels or bitcoin?

Wow, they pulled Last Jedi from Dolby here for Jumanji? Last Jedi Dolby was packed here every time I looked for tickets, even today still, every good seat sold out. Seems like a bizarre decision. Just like how they got rid of TCM Classics, all of the showings for everything, even though they had the best sales for sales of any theater in the entire region.

Tonight it’s not crowded . Because of the snow.

I think amc needs to upgrade the imax projector along with the seats since its been almost a decade since the conversion.

Star wars is playing only in imax and regular while the commuter is in dolby. Looks like black panther is in 3d and regular but not imax.

During the showing of last jedi in imax when the movie started the lights were left on so some moviegoers addressed management to turn it off which they did!

This weekend 12 strong is in Imax while jumanji continues its streak in dolby. I wonder when AMC will upgrade it to dolby 3d.
