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.

The only high frame rate 3d showing this weekend is the reald 3d screening and most showings are 2k 3d, not the 4k hfr 120fps that Lee intended it to be. Most showings will do only 4k hfr 60fps, and that includes Dolby 3d, imax laser 3d, in several locations. Watching a movie like it is similar to putting on the soap opera effect on my tv while watching a movie and that could be sickening for some people. I’m glad that the dolby is showing Gemini Man in 4k 24fps. Addams Family is being shown in 2d. Next week Malificent comes out in 3d and regular while Zombieland comes out in dolby.

During the showing of Gemini man in dolby when I came in a bit late for only a few minutes the image was cropped so I told amc on Facebook to fix the issue which they did although the black bars on the sides were a little tinted. The sound mix was good and the image very bright.

moviebuff82: Have responded to your query on Cinema Treasures' Odeon Leicester Square page. Also commented on the HFR aspect of “Gemini Man,” which might be of interest to you.

Thanks. Hopefully when the holidays approach they will start showing early movies again when Frozen II, Star Wars, and Jumanji come out…used to go there before AMC cut back on the hours due to low attendance. Might check out Malificent in Dolby and see Zombieland in regular this weekend. Can’t wait for imax to open late next month!!!

Went to see maleficent 2 and thankfully amc management fixed an issue where the movie was only in 2d so they reset the projector and showed the 3d frames. Advanced showtimes now on display for the 9th star wars movie in addition to a long marathon of every Skywalker saga movie . Morristown is the closest with showtimes so hopefully rockaway gets them on Monday..

Saw Zombieland 2 in theater #15 and noticed the image was movie like as i would see on my 4k tv with a dim image and some dull colors. It was a little blurry yet the audio was good and modestly loud. No imax showtimes for Skywalker yet until the theater opens in late november so there will be plenty of imax seats available while other showtimes will sell out.

Saw black and blue today in screen #10 and presentation was good. In the lobby there’s the amc imax sign saying it’s being renovated. I cannot wait.

saw Ford V Ferrari in screen #2 and was told by the cashier that the imax will likely reopen with Frozen II next weekend.

Imax with laser opening with Ford v Ferrari then frozen ii

Any impressions on the laser? From what i saw on advance tickets it’s selling really well because of frozen, which is also helping the dolby and regular screens. The 3d is not doing well. I saw a picture on google maps that showed the theater under construction and it shows reclining seats and the speakers. It’s also fewer seats than what it was after the imax conversion nearly 10 years ago back when Avatar sold more tickets at a bit lower prices and when 3d was all the rage. Now it’s all about 4k and even 8k in the near future. I’ll probably wait until Disney plus has frozen II.
