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.

looks like tomorrowland will share time with San Andreas in imax this weekend for a few weeks until Jurassic World comes out.

^ that’s because ‘Tomorrowland’ is under performing ‘San Andreas’ is a 11th hour decision from IMAX and Warners.

yes, that is so important since this is the only complex it is occurring at and certainly worthy of a post to this once great board.

The ‘splitting of showings’ is happening through the IMAX universe.

I again wonder if these sorts of inquiries wouldn’t be better relegated to this theatre’s Facebook?

AMC removed the cashiers at the box office and replaced it with automatic ticket machines…sign of the times…

As a result lines move quicker as I saw when I went to see Jurassic World in 3d real d. They need to align the lenses better since some scenes had bad 3d. Also there was masking so that the ratio was closer to 1.85 so that trailers and policy ads and preshow were shown that way. The sound mixing was good although I had a hard time listening to the dialogue with kids in the theater.

still no photos of this venue, eh- none of the existing are from one who seems to be the most interested in this particular venue.

Shame that all of these changes that are going on with this complex haven’t been documented.

When you see a picture of the whole building you think of the temples at Luxor or Karnak

exactly- that’s why I’m so surprised that the interior of this magical venue hasn’t been recorded. There has to be something so spectacular to garner this much interest in comments, shame it’s not being shared
