AMC Loews Centerpark 8

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Beltsville, Maryland doesn’t see too often a nice 8 plex open and one that is run by Loews.

May 1993 saw the opening of a gem theatre. This new 40,000 square foot 8-plex is the talk of the town. It is of the Art Deco styling and plush rocking chair seats with cup holders. Of course, all the theatres have state of the art projection equipment with Lucasfilm THX sound and all eight screen have Dolby sound.

My posting about this place is gone, again. :P

Let me see if I can remember. The auditoriums that were THX certified were the ones at either end of the venue. Not all of the auditoriums were THX certified. I do not think they continue to be certified as this venue does not show up on the THX site. I think structurally, the venue had the necessary specs to be THX certified but it may be that management chose not to renew the fees to keep its certification.

The last movie I saw here was a few years ago. Don’t remember the title, but I’m sure I have the stub in my movie stub bowl. I do remember there was just one lady, probably the manager, who sold the tickets and ran the concession stand!

I do remember seeing Titanic here in ‘97. It was in one of the THX cert auditoriums. What was memorable about it was how subdued/silent the sound was. Sure, the movie was great, it just did not wow me as it should have given the movies great visuals and soundtrack. I believe the Columbia venue had the regions only 70mm print of it at the time.

There are currently only two auditoriums in operation. Is the complex being retrofitted for stadium seating?

I remember going out here since it was one of the first complexes to feature Sony’s SDDS sound system – ‘Open Siege 2’s soundtrack rocked!

Maybe renovations like most amc theaters are getting as part of the parent company’s agenda to retrofit non stadium seating seats into luxury seats.
