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.

Does anyone know exactly how wide the largest screen here is?

Not sure but check out the page for the grand opening of this theater, which happened nearly 7 years ago this weekend. I believe it’s the Atmos ETX screen. The Imax theater is second and one of the single numbered theaters is third.

LOOKS LIKE?

2024?

where exactly did you see this gem of important information at and what relevance does it have to this particular venue? Is this the ONLY complex that is going to be affected by this change?

I fail to see the significance of this post as it applies to this particular complex.

If you have legitimate documented information, please do post it. If not, please stop.

I think he is referring to this. http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/9/8373533/dolby-cinema-amc-prime-movie-theater-laser-projector

AMC will begin by converting existing ETX and AMC Prime sites into Dolby Cinema ones. It expects to have four by mid-May: in Los Angeles, Kansas City, Houston, and Atlanta. It plans to have 50 by the end of 2018, and 100 by the end of 2024.

Thank you for the link and back story. However, after reading this article I’m still baffled what that has to do with this particular complex. No mention made of it in that article, I’d really like that piece of info cleared up
