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.

Me too…the only thing that will irk me is the reserved seating. When Dolby Cinema at Clifton Commons opened, they were putting in the letters and numbers for the reserved seating process to work. By the following weekend, that plan worked in effect. So far, advance sales for guardians in dolby at clifton have sold out already over the imax 3d version.

@alpinedownhiller….i think reserved seating is coming according to fandango, which confirms that fact.

Theater #9 will be the Prime auditorium according to a friend of mine who works at this theater.

Gotta be soon. Just noticed #9 has not shown any movies for the last couple of weeks.

According to Fandango it hasn’t been. Dolby Cinema has its own Facebook page where you can hear the latest news on openings. AMC is its biggest customer right now at the rate they’re opening the dolby cinemas. It’s not as big as IMAX, but it’s growing.

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/amc-entertainment-2-1202418948/ it seems that AMC is moving in the right direction as they are renovating more theaters at a rapid pace from now until 2018.

I went to see Guardians in 2d in one of the auditoriums that had a 3d dispenser for the glasses. The preshow was in the wrong aspect ratio but the feature was in the correct aspect ratio. As for the movie it was awesome and the visuals and audio were good. This movie will have legs. I went by theater #9 and they’re hard at work on the Dolby Cinema. There’s a sign that says coming soon dolby cinema at amc.

According to Dolby’s facebook page, they said that crew members are hard at work on the screen. I wonder if it will open in time for Alien or maybe other Dolby Cinema movies soon.

Went to see Alien in the theater next to the imax and enjoyed it. Popcorn still tasted good. The bottom of the aspect ratio was a little cut off by the masking but that didn’t matter to the audience. Audio was good and immersive.
