Unfavorite 6 people favorited this theater

This Seattle Loews shows what Rockaway was supposed to look like.

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.

actually I saw the invisible Man in laser imax and it was a good movie. The sound mix was well done and the picture was decent. The tenet trailer in IMAX was pretty good. I plan on seeing Onward this weekend in Dolby. Advance tickets for the final Daniel Craig James Bond movie are on sale now and this is the first James Bond movie to be shot partly on Imax film.

Saw Onward in Dolby yesterday and as many of you know now, they changed the policy trailer for Dolby by putting in the generic AMC 100 years trailer that is being shown before every movie and before the format trailer. It’s pretty nice but the generic trailer doesn’t shake up the seats like the “projector is still on” trailer does afterwards. As for the movie itself, it was quite fun. Lots of active surrounds and good color. One of the seats in my row was broken so someone told AMC to repair it after the show was over. Looks like next month will not be busy since James Bond has moved to November and the coronavirus is on everyone’s minds right now.

Speaking of which, there is reduced seating at this and many other AMCs due to the social distancing phenomenon that has occured since the pandemic began. Some AMCs in affected areas where the risk is higher such as in Bergen County are closed. The next few weeks will be quieter than usual due to release date changes due to the virus.

This theater i hope reopens in Mid July just in time for Tenet as well as holdover movies from the spring that have been on demand for awhile. Soon they should renovate the theatres that dont have recliners and plush seating and upgrade the audio and projection.

Ah to be a fly on the wall in AMC corporate. “ Well we do need to be sure we have every safety measure in place, be sure seating is set up so customers are socially distant. Also mark the 6 ft areas in the concession lines. How’s re-design coming on that new touchless popcorn container? ”

Oh screw that, we need to get to that multiplex in Central Jersey!

Can they really exhibit when seating is limited. Many of the auditoriums in the multiplexes don’t even have 100 seats!

Please update, 2943 seats, seat reduction due to IMAX and Dolby reconfiguration

Since re-opening under Gov. Murphy’s pandemic regulations and AMC’s 40% capacity seating, this once great and glorious complex, which worthy of over 1800 comments is now only screening movies once a day during the week (including Tenet) and only using 13 of their 16 theatres, where other Jersey AMC venues (such as the all important AMC Garden State 16 are doing 4 a day), one wonders if this place could be shuttered soon.

Definitely not a good sign they are doing such limited showings. But at least they have shows during the week. Cinemark Theatres are closed mon tues and wed.
