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.

I’m not sure why the AMC Prime experience would be better than the IMAX version, considering for BvS around three scenes were shot in 4:3 IMAX full screen

With AMC merging with Carmike at the end of the year, one of the smallest rivals to this theater will be an ally and that is the Sparta theater which is currently owned by Carmike. Maybe they’ll transfer employees from Rockaway to Sparta and vice versa…

just saw BvS in regular 2d at theater #9. I like the film grain during the close up shots of Batman and Superman. The movie was loud but not as loud as it would be heard in imax. Ticket prices have gone up quite a bit and will probably increase when the summer comes and soon renovations.

Do we know what/when renovations are coming to Rockaway?

Maybe in the next few years. I know AMC is spending billions according to what they said in a statement. No texting allowed in AMC, which is a good thing.

Looks like X-Men is sold out next week…according to Fandango.

Checking showtimes on AMC’s website; looks like the IMAX is closed for the weekend….i wonder if they’re renovating it with laser projectors before Warcraft comes out? It will be a year since the coke freestyle machines and ticketing machines were put in effect. Finding Dory looks like its gonna be packed for the week after.

Any info on what they did…?

moviebuff82 on June 6, 2016 at 4:36 pm

nothing from AMC per their facebook page. I also checked the Dolby Prime at AMC site for any news…judging from seeing the pictures of the seats on instagram they looks like they’re starting to wear out from their original color.

It was never closed. They just delayed scheduling the IMAX shows since they were deciding between abandoning Alice for Turtles or not (they chose the latter). There is no way they’d put laser in here before Lincoln Square. I don’t even think they have their multi-plex laser projector finished yet (apparently they want something cheaper than the big one they put in a full true IMAX places so far).
