AMC Garden State 16 Interior

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This 16-screen megaplex opened Memorial Day weekend 2007. The theater has DLP projection in at least one auditorium and two auditoria with rear window captioning.

The theater is the successor to the old Route 4 tenplex. Unlike that now closed theater, the new AMC Garden State 16 is attached to Garden State Plaza, the busiest mall in New Jersey.

This theater was originally supposed to be a Loews, but that changed (just like the Rockaway location) when AMC bought LCE.

Looks like the imax is closed for the weekend, perhaps renovations?

no, they just delayed deciding what movie to show on that screen until last minute

I don’t think the small screen IMAX Laser projector design is even finished yet.

And I can’t see Lincoln Square not getting laser before places like this.

Is this theater the highest grossing theater in North Jersey as well as New Jersey?

In ALL of NJ? IDK AMC Elizabeth has 20 screens and plays tons of international films too in addition to being near tons of communities. This screen benefits from being in a big mall imo.

AMC Hamilton has 24 screens but I have never been there so I can’t comment on it

I’ve been to Jersey Gardens 20 before one of their screens became a liemax and saw my first reald 3d movie there. I never been to Hamilton, which has the same number of screens as Cherry Hill, which i also never went to. Those are in central and south jersey, respectively. In north jersey this theater is the busiest out of all the theaters in that area due to it being in a busy mall area. The parking lot on Sundays is less crowded near this place than during the rest of the week since most of the parking surrounds the theater. Finding Dory is playing in Dolby Cinema at AMC while Warcraft is still playing in IMAX 3D.

Saw Dory here in dolby cinema. Looked and sounded amazing, especially the opening realistic looking short film at the beginning. Yea sunday is best because I think the rest of the mall isn’t open all day like usual due to some local law so the parking lot is mostly empty. I agree though, this is the biggest in the north nj area

Paramus has Blue Laws so stores are closed on Sundays except grocery stores. The theaters are the only thing open at the mall on a Subday. Makes parking easy.

I know. You have to get through certain areas of the mall to get there. Some roads are blocked.
