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.

Dolby Projector is messed up here, not sure when it went bad, it was fine a number of weeks ago, but looked in and the screen looked weird, all radioactive and weird stripe on side of the screen. Apparently it’s been like this for a few days at least. Hopefully they fix it.

Wonder what the heck is going on with this theater, now that they are finally getting into some of the better Fathom Events Classics for the year, all of a sudden it seems like none of the ticket links for this theater work for them. They either say sold out or when they don’t say sold out they give internal error. Is Rockaway once again pulling all of their Fathom Events Classics?

What the heck is up with this theater these days? Last year they ran them, and some pretty much sold out even the big #16 theater but then all of a sudden after not cancelling a couple that I’d imagine would be weaker sellers for that series they go and cancel two that would for sure have all but sold out and done way better than what they did end up using #16 for. That really made no sense.

I was glad to see them back here again for this year again even if the series had a bit of a weak start for titles this year, but now it seems just as they are gonna start to get into the more popular stuff they are pulling it again??

There are so many poorly selling movies out this weekend they don’t even have space for a single showing or two this week?

Doesn’t help that their new app and online ticket system of the last couple years is horrendous and makes it barely even apparent they even show stuff like this.

OK, well I heard from someone who heard from someone who heard from someone and they didn’t actually cancel the Fathom Events, they just accidentally entered a bunch of them into the system as reserved seating but the auditorium has no reserved seating so it was making it impossible to order tickets and variously giving out internal error, sold out, no showings scheduled, etc. and apparently it will be fixed soon and the ticketing will work again. So that is good.

Looks like showings of ready player one are sold out especially in dolby. Avengers in dolby is getting full and probably the imax and imax 3d Showtimes will too since the film was shot mostly on imax digital cameras.

Dolby Cinema looked like it was working normally again today, so it seems they fixed it.

(not that this is the place for this sort of talk but since I’m already posting…. the theater was crazy packed tonight, lots of shows looked to be all but sold out or sold out for everything from Black Panther to Red Sparrow, maybe spring break college crowd being back helped or something)

It is college break. Yesterday the theater closed due to what could be the last noreaster of the winter and has since reopened today.

Next year will be ten years since Imax and digital 4k projection came to this theatre. When this theatre first opened, it used preshow digital projectors for live events like the met in HD and 35mm projectors for movies. Flash forward and there’s no 35mm projection anymore.

Isn’t it weird that Avengers is coming out a week earlier than the first week of May? Disney made that move due to huge demand and a worldwide day and date release. Not only that, but they warn moviegoers not to post any spoilers online. Judging by the showtimes, this movie is going to be a huge hit, especially with Imax (where it was shot on) and dolby. Hopefully it has legs like Black Panther, as Black Panther is the longest running movie at this theater this year.
