AMC Rockaway 16

Viewing: Photo | Street View

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.

I invite you or anyone else to go through your pernt near 3500 comments and find something of substance. You ask inane questions that are easily found doing a google search. You post outrageous facts and innuendo and don’t apologize, just delete them. You never follow on your questions.

There’s a reason myself and now others are sick and tired of your postings. You’re being disrespectful turning this into your own personal playtoy.

The more you continue, the more myself & others will continue. This has been going on for years & years and needs to end.

Why does a chain cookie cutter mallplex even have 1500+ comments? What is so special about this AMC outpost in north central New Jersey?

It draws more people in morris county than the theater in morristown and east hanover combined. I created the theater post more than 10 years ago long before Facebook and others inputted places like this on their social media pages. I rarely comment on this page as I can comment on facebook and google. Might as well delete my profile.

OK. Admittedly, I am not a fan of multiplexes. However I do like to see films at several near me. One has a giant floor to ceiling, wall to wall XD theater and another has a large curving screen with Dolby Atmos and now installing Dolby Vision and reclining seats. Glad to hear this one does good business but is there better projection, seating, sound?? What I remember most from this theatre’s comments are the long winded one person conversations that for quite a while went on daily. Also – Have friends in Caldwell and had a friend in Morristown that moved a year ago. Really beautiful country around there.

Ok. With the sale of Carmike to AMC complete, there might be talk of AMC to divest this theater as well as Sparta, which is not too far away from Rockaway and the only commercial movie theater left in Sussex County (the newton theater is independently run and sometimes shows movies mostly for revivals in addition to live concerts). Not only that, but the advertising will be switched to Screenvision from NCM soon.

Twice in 2 days.. Guess this is no longer valid

“I rarely comment on this page as I can comment on facebook and google. Might as well delete my profile”

Your speculating on what is going to happen with this complex now would be like my jumping onto a Walgreens message board the second that merger went through and talking about ones that might close.

Worrying about things that might not even happen is not a good thing.

Under the proposed Justice Department Settlement Agreement AMC has been given the choice to divest the Rockaway 16 or the Digiplex Sparta 3.

The Settlement Agreement dated December 20, 2016 with all the divestiture options for the 15 locations (attached as Exhibit “A” thereto) is found at:

Are moviebuff82 and muviebuf the same person? I can hear Bud Collyer right now. “Will the real moviebuff please stand up”.
