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.

Your comment about “Kingsman : The Secret Service” trailer is quite intriguing. I’ve attended screenings for AMC theaters in venues in many different regions. Lately the conclusion of the trailer would have a slide with the graphic of the movie’s title , AMC logo and date in which the movie was scheduled to open.

I’ve seen commercials for other movies during the pre-show. Perhaps that is when you saw it.?

I heard people have complained that the imax digital projector sometimes breaks down….

Yes hdtv267. When the trailer reel starts at AMC, after the announcer says, “Coming Soon to AMC”…the words zoom out and the green band is on for the first trailer. All other trailers don’t have bands and conclude with not only the movie title date and amc logo but the film’s rating on the lower left corner of the screen.

I am very well aware of how AMC is presenting it’s coming attractions now.

It brought you to this site that a Cinemark XD logo was shown on an AMC screen.

I was merely offering a solution as to how that could have occurred.

Might have been a delivery error by the studio to amc. Today, I went to see “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” in 2d, and came in just in time for the trailer reel. I already saw the second Hunger Games Mockingjay trailer so i didn’t know if they showed it before the amc policy trailer or after the movie was over. Presentation was pretty good and the crowd seemed to enjoy it. I also got a free Imax Transformers poster even though i’ll wait for the bluray to come out for rental. Pretty soon this theater will have comfier seats. Some of the seats are a bit stiff for me to sit through.

Just came back from seeing “Guardians of the Galaxy” in IMAX 3D….it was worth going to…the 3D conversion was pretty good and I like the aspect ratio changes and scenes in which things pop out of the scope aspect ratio as well as full screen transitions. During the preshow, the last few minutes were cut off by the preshow. Nearly all of the trailers were 2d, one of which was windowboxed (Night at the Museum 3), and others that didn’t fill up the IMAX screen that were in scope, and one 3D trailer that looks really good, the next Hobbit movie. I was a bit dissapointed that the third trailer for Interstellar wasn’t shot in IMAX as that film was near completion at the time of this comment. As for the movie, it was quite enjoyable and the audience loved it. Stay after the credits for a funny scene. The audio mix is a bit loud but very good.

just came back from seeing Gone Girl. While I enjoyed the movie (the cinematography was amazing and the soundtrack pretty good) there were people sitting in the lower seats taking selfies with the flash on to themselves and the projector flickering a bit (must be a bulb and also a real d theatre since i saw the glasses bin). Also the screens showing the prices of the concessions was offline. I hope AMC renovates this theater in a few years which means more price increases and the possiblity of reserved seating…which will make this theater more like a NYC theater. This is why i watch most movies on TV and on the go and not get distracted.

Ticket prices as of the last time I went to the movies went up around 30 cents. I saw the boxtrolls in 2d. It was ok. They played it in the same theater that showed it in 3d for the next two showings after two 2d showings. The picture was a bit dim and blurry action but the sound mix was great. They need to repave the parking lot. Also five guys is opening near petsmart forcing moviegoers to take a detour around the construction when heading towards panera.
