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.

Just came back from seeing Spiderman Homecoming. Very good movie although the 3d was very blurry in spots. Sound was good. They got more stuff to put in that Dolby Cinema and they have the signs up. I can’t wait…

which screen did you find the 3D blurry at times for Spiderman, #7 or #10? And in what way was it blurry? It’s not blurry in #8 (IMAX).

Just wondering if they ever fixed the problem where the R,G,B alignment for the projection on screens 7 and 10 was out of wack (nothing to do with 3D itself though) which produced color fringing and made things look a touch blurry in a weird way across the entire screen, all the time.

15 and #6 have really good projection (as does the IMAX, although it obviously doesn’t do 4k like it seems 15 and 6 can). I don’t think they ever show 3D in #15 and #6 so it probably doesn’t hurt that the projector is locked into single projection, no polarized mode either. Those two always seem to have deep blacks (for non-Laser, non-Dolby, non-IMAX, at least), strong contrast, bright projection, very crisp, rich colors, nice gamma and calibration and so on.

holy cow why did the last paragraph of my last post turn into gigantic red letters?

thanks

Was it a projection issue with #10 or do you think it was just something a little messed up with some of the 2D to 3D conversion and intrinsic to the video file itself?

And did you notice and color fringing at #10? I haven’t seen a movie on that screen in a number of years but it had horrendous color fringing the last time I did. Just wondering if they fixed that or not.

not really. At least the audio mix was good. I wonder which auditoriums have 7.1 speakers…probably the larger ones sans imax. When the dolby cinema at amc opens, it will be the first ever Dolby Atmos location in morris county if not northwest jersey. As for the 3d conversion ,it was terrible. The showtime that my dad picked was 3d by mistake. The trailers before the film were ok in 3d such as Valerian which was shot in 3d. The AMC first look in 3d was good. The 2d trailers looked fine.

On my facebook news feed as well as twitter I’ve seen ads for Dolby Cinema at AMC Rockaway along with the featured movie which is War for the Planet of the Apes which I plan to see soon…i didn’t care for seeing it in 3d like the last one which was fine in 2d.

The auditorium will open late summer according to a chat with Dolby Cinema’s chatbot on messenger.
