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

I think he is referring to this.

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.

where is your documentation of our post or a link to where you saw this information and how it pertains to this complex.

Please provide this. ok?

hdtv267 on April 9, 2015 at 11:33 pm



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.

Looks like amc will rebrand their prime and etx theatres as dolby cinema by the end of 2024….including the etx screen here.

moviebuff82 on November 11, 2014 at 9:59 pm

Now this will be interesting since the movie theater in the past has been open on turkey day with all the big movie releases in addition to the eaterys…

moviebuff82 on June 1, 2014 at 2:33 pm

This theater will face competition from Regal Cinemas when their new Paramus Park theater opens soon…

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.

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

moviebuff82 on December 13, 2013 at 10:39 pm

Imax HFR 3D version of The Hobbit 2 is playing at this theater alongside the dolby atmos hfr 3d version of the hobbit, the regular 3d version, and the 2d version.

The shooter died of suicide acoording to news reports overnight; according to, tickets are available but the rest of the mall will remain closed until tomorrow so that the evidence is cleared up.

moviebuff82 on November 5, 2013 at 3:14 am

The theater is closed due to a shooter on the loose in the mall.

how is gravity in atmos 3d?

moviebuff82 on October 2, 2013 at 7:02 pm

Dbox will be installed for gravity on friday.

How is the reserved seating doing at this theater? If it proves to be successful, then it will bring it to other top grossing AMC plexes….This month marks one year since Dolby Atmos made its premiere with Brave, a great pixar movie that also sounds good. Since then, a dozen other theaters have converted some screens to Dolby Atmos, mostly in urban areas of NYC that are owned by Regal.

moviebuff82 on April 14, 2013 at 10:42 pm

Amc wont own that theater. Maybe regal?

Google paramus park movie theater and it will have links.

hdtv267 on April 14, 2013 at 9:34 pm

umm, ok- so the link to that article about this is where please?

moviebuff82 on April 12, 2013 at 6:25 pm

Looks like the paramus park mall will have a new theater to compete against this one according to

moviebuff82 on April 11, 2013 at 8:20 pm

Price wise, this is the most expensive of the three AMC 16 plexers in northern NJ. If you ever want to know more about dolby atmos, then search the AVS Forum for it. Quite a few movies are coming out this year in it, including Star Trek Into Darkness, Oblivion, The Heat, and the Hobbit part II.

“Life of Pi” can assure old-timers that digital cinematography can be as beautiful as film. I’m not putting one format better than the other. It’s more spiritual than Hugo and Avatar, and it made me reflect on life. This is THE place around NYC to see that movie, other than Ziegfeld which is actually in NYC. (No I haven’t seen it yet at the Ziegfeld)

moviebuff82 on November 24, 2012 at 4:32 pm

How was the movie, thebrat? I heard that this movie will be this year’s Hugo.

thebrat on November 21, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Came back from “Life of Pi” in 3D on the ETX screen (#3). Being a Dolby Atmos location for “Brave” (it no longer says this location is with Atmos on Dolby’s website, but it is still set up for the system) and “Life of Pi” being an Atmos film, this might be the place to see it in. Atmos wasn’t advertised, and the film was presented in at least 7.1.

And wow, what a place to see a movie. It’s everything the Tyson’s Corner 16 in McLean, VA wishes to be but isn’t. This is the superior theater. The ETX setup has two Sony 4K projectors (which at first I thought it wasn’t enough for a big screen like these types of theaters but produced outstanding pictures and clarity) in dual-projector mode for 3D. The sound was also massive and sometimes pushes the chairs. The seats were comfy, but a bit squeaky. Going to visit again someday.
