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.

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.

What is weird is that this theater is not having any IMAX 3D showings of Solo at all! Kinda stinks since IMAX 3D is way better than Dolby 3D, brighter and less cross-talk. And since IMAX 2D is only 2K it’s kinda wasting what the IMAX screen does here much better than any other screen and that is 3D.

So they are showing the 3D showings on the inferior tech at 2K (on a much smaller screen) when that projector could be doing 2D at 4K and then showing it at 2D on the IMAX screen at 2K. They already have the Dolby screen giving it a large screen 2D 4K experience so it seems kinda weird.

I guess Jersey Gardens it is.

moviebuff82 on May 19, 2018 at 1:49 pm here’s a link to the theater back when loews cineplex was working on it years before the amc merger. I saw avengers in regular format in theater #7 near the Imax. Decent crowd. Seats are still uncomfy despite moving my feet up and down. One thing I noticed during the preshow is that people can use their phones and play AR games with an app which is pretty cool. The masking was a bit off though yet the projection and sound mix was great.

Does anyone know why they seem to have totally stopped showing anything in IMAX 3D at this theater? Dolby 3D is way worse, but all the do for 3D now is Dolby (and on much smaller screens) now here.
