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.

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.

moviebuff82 on October 26, 2014 at 2:47 pm this is why….I hate paying a tax for a movie ticket.

Advance tickets on sale for hunger games mockingjay part 1 as well as a marathon the day before it opens. I can’t wait to see interstellar in Imax.

I for one am baffled by the lack of interior photos for this complex. There’s a lot of exterior ones, but none of the interior?

I tend not to take pictures inside each as it would take too much time and it has to be before the movie starts. Is there a way to upload pics via ct by phone?
