AMC Garden State 16 Interior

This 16-screen megaplex opened on May 25, 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.

Hopefully rockaway gets it too as well as others in the area that have had the 2k imax projectors for nearly 10 years as that system is being retired. I remember it came out during the release of The Dark Knight for theatres that couldn’t afford a real imax projector and convert the screen into a larger screen with no masking issues at all and pumped up surround sound that has inspired copycats like Dolby Cinema and others.

After three months of renovations (65 days, to be exact), the upgraded Laser IMAX auditorium with AMC Signature Plush Rocker seating opened here today.

how is it? Can’t wait for rockaway to have it as well as clifton commons as most of the small imax projectors are being replaced with the laser PQ and AQ as well as seating to be on par with Dolby and other premium formats. How is the pricing compared to the previous imax in paramus?

Is the Paramus IMAX screen much larger than the one in New Brunswick. New Brunswick is closer to me… I’d like to check out Laser at some point. Wish it was coming to the Monmouth Mall AMC. Maybe next year. Trying to scope out the best place to see The Rise of Skywalker before tickets go on sale soon.

@Moviebuff why? Rockaway is really far away and doesn’t have IMAX laser

Went to see Terminator in laser Imax. It was dark the entire movie including previews. Could see the picture but the bulb was obviously turned down. I went to lobby and told someone, but nothing happened. I hear theaters do this to save on the bulb. I also went to AMC Wayne and as the lights went down, a mouse came running past me. I left. A lousy weekend at AMC theaters!

There’s no “bulb” to turn down in a Laser projector.

Well whatever the technical cause was, the image was obviously too dark, a common problem at AMC. And Regal.
