Recently Screenvision installed digital projectors only for the pre-shows as well as live events at this theater.

I hope this theater gets the same digital projection that other clearviews have.

When Clearview bought this theater, in addition to the two screens, four new screens were added alongside installation of sound systems and raising prices. Has this place improved since my last visit (around 2006, when I saw Cars). I know other Clearviews in Morris have improved, like the Madison.

Since this theater’s owned by Clearview, have they ran any midnight showings of ROCKY HORROR? I know a bunch of them still do, such as those in Bergenfield and Bellevue. Right across the street from the theater there is a new retail development that has more upscale stores.

I believe the Chester Cinema (Cinema 206) was originally built as a twin…circa ‘79. I know that the mall itself was put up starting in/around '76, and they gradually added as they went. The theater was one of the last 'things’ added.

I recall seeing 10 and THE IN-LAWS there in 1979, and I would swear that it was twinned already.

I KNOW it was twinned when I caught a midnight screening of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and THE MEATCLEAVER MASSACRE (double bill) sometime in ‘80/'81.

After Clearview bought the theater, it probably cut up the two big screens into six or added four into the theater.

Back in 1993 this was a twin theater.
see 2nd paragraph.

Not sure if originally built as a twin – need to do some more research.

i can’t believe this theater is still open!!! This theater has to be one of those underpeforming theaters that are owned by Clearview. Any word on when it might close soon? This is the only theater reachable from 206 for those who live in Newton, since the Newton theater shut down.

The address should be Route 206 and 24, not 204. I’ve been to this theater twice in the past few years, first to see “Collateral” in one of the main four auditoriums when it opened during the summer of 2004, and the second time during the weekend when “Cars” came out last year in the two back auditoriums. Both were smaller than the average Clearview Cinema and resemble more like the Allwood Sixplex (which is also owned by Clearview). They’re not as profitable as the other Clearview theaters around Morris and Warren counties, yet they play a good mix of family, art-house, and blockbuster fare in a busy rural shopping center located not too far from the turkey farms.
