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.

Cool thanks, Alpine. I guess it wouldn’t be worth it to travel up to Paramus then. Jersey Gardens is closer to my office. I’ve been trying to find the largest local digital IMAX screen. The AMC Eatontown theater is around the corner from me and I like the theater but their IMAX screen is quite small.

How does it compare against Rockaway and Clifton Imax?

As best as I can tell: Paramus=Elizabeth > Rockaway > Clifton

I believe that Paramus and Elizabeth IMAX screens are the largest in all of northern and central NJ (although I have not yet seen the New Brunswick one, that one is probably at least as large as Rockaway and might be as large as Paramus and Elizabeth, perhaps even larger, although probably not).

I think the only two other screens in all of NJ that might be larger are the two real IMAX screens in the Atlantic City region, but those are far away and I’ve never been to them.

Manville has two pretty wide 2.40:1 screens, probably as wide as the Rockaway IMAX, at least, but not as tall.

How tall is the dolby screen in paramus compared to the ones in Clifton and rockaway?

not sure, I think the Clifton is the smallest of these three in both dimensions. Not quite sure about Paramus vs. Rockaway for the Dolby.

I wonder if the AMC in Hackensack will share day and date product with its sister theater here.

I can’t recall but is it #6 or #7 that is the one ultra tiny little shoebox theater and screen here?

The IMAX theater in Paramus is quite good. I saw Blade Runner 2049 there and it was stellar (we were two of ten people on an evening in week one, which was sad). It is far and away better than Clifton. We won’t go back to Clifton after that, plus the garage makes it easy to park. Go Monday-Saturday and do your shopping or go Sunday and have the place to yourself.
