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.

Went to see Fallout in Imax 2d today. Theater is kinda showing its age by the seats. I almost touched a bug which thankfully i scrubbed off the seat since it was hot outside. Presentation was pretty good. The sound was booming and the imax scenes were worth seeing. Another bonus was seeing the First Man trailer shown before the movie. Can’t wait to see a movie in imax again once they refurbish the seats and add laser projection to this screen to even it up with Dolby Cinema, which is like imax but with vibrating seats.

Saw Fallout in Dolby over the weekend with my g/f. Is it me, or is it just “too loud”? I can handle a lot, but every time we come out of that theater, we both have major headaches.

yeah it’s way too loud and the Dolby Cinemas tend to also be pretty treble hot which makes them real ear burners I have to wear earplugs for many screens, including this one (of course that reduces the audio quality a bit but better than adding ever more damage to hearing).

Laser IMAX is pretty awesome (certainly the system they use on the real IMAX screens is at least)

hope the new rocker seats are not too large, since that makes for seating harder to find at the optimal distance and the mall already sells out big event stuff even with the current small seats

The meg is not playing in dolby but mission impossible is still playing in dolby. closest theater is in paramus. Boo. I’d rather see that in dolby instead of liemax.

yeah that is a weird thing, MI is better in IMAX since it has a number of scenes with expanded screen and the Meg probably works better in Dolby since you get 4K and don’t lose expanded screens, since this is basically the reverse of what would be best for each

although I think the pretty large screen #1 is probably good enough for the Meg for me in this particular case

Last night heavy thunderstorms caused the power at this theater to go out until it reopened late at night.
