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.

According to fandango @poland626, Chipmunks 4 is not in 3d and there are regular showtimes. Point Break has reald 3d showtimes only while Star Wars has Imax showtimes. This is the only location in NJ to host the two day marathon and tickets are still available.

This theater will show The Hateful Eight in 70mm when it opens on Xmas Day next week.

Yup. And I cant wait to see how long it takes for the dopes running the booth will blow up the print. I applied to 3 different companies looking for PROFESSIONAL projectionists with 70MM expierience. (which I had from the 80’s and 90’s) But no response, except from one one who told me he hired students from a vocational school. Yeah, Im sure theyre gonna know what their doing. Yup this ol timer is just gonna sit back and watch the horror stories light up the internet.

Is the Dolby Vision Theater still on track? Is it really that much better. I’m really curious for details about it.

AMC Prime Theatre is now open. Theater #15 has a (temporary) 70MM projector installed for the Hateful Eight Roadshow – decent presentation (although awkwardly letterboxed – leaving the bottom ¼th empty).

The lack of masking was the subject of a few complaints – the image size was about ½ a flat image in this auditorium (I’m not sure QT would approve – I wish Harvey had booked Edgewater Multiplex instead – they have a few big houses with side masking that would provided a better experience for sure, even if they aren’t properly set up for Ultra Pannavision either).

The other oddity about Theater #15 – it literally is the furthest theater from the concession stand – I doubt during peak times (this weekend) that 12-minute intermission is going to be enough time. It’s quite comical how AMC boasts about “innovation” when they pay such little attention to details.

Is was great to see 70MM again, however, I think Tarantino’s experiment will not change things. The Ultra Panavision image only filled half the screen,the images did not pop off the screen as they would in digital (This film will play well on blu-ray at home since it’s mostly interior) If Hateful 8 played a theater equipped with the cinerama screen then it would be an experience, but the cost would be enormous. I kept thinking that if this film played a special run at an equipped theater geared for the image, with reserved seating, then it would be an event. The sound was outstanding and the movie itself was great. At one point a line ran down the film from wear and tear and there was some dropouts, it made me smile and think of the old days when it was all film. I don’t know if 70MM fever will spread (for special event screenings I hope so) but I applaud QT for bringing back the roadshow. I saw LAWRENCE OF ARABIA at the Ziegfeld in 70MM in 2002 for the 40th and I was awestruck!!!

Gee the print is already scratched? Amazing. Im projecting it at the E Walk in NYC and it doesnt have a scratch yet. Good ol AMC.

On a lighter note, how is Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime? Star Wars is playing there.

Saw Zootopia here in dolby cinema. Wasn’t bad. Colors popped and audio was great. Seats didn’t vibrate like amc empire though, had to bring that up.

Also, right now there’s no reserved seating, but if you try to get tickets to civil war, you can choose seats so they are going to be adding the system in soon it seems

It’s already in place this weekend.
