AMC Newport Centre 11

This was a very modern styled cinema. Typical of those situated in a shopping mall, but two or three of the cinemas were the largest I have ever seen in a theatre located in a mall, and most of them had curtains that open before every presentation (which I dont think any first run movie theatre does anymore in the state of New Jersey).

As you enter the theatre you pass the concession and box office which are on the top floor food court area of the mall. The first six auditoriums located on either side. As you come to the remaing cinemas they are much larger and the sound is better. This theatre opened December 18, 1987 with nine screens.

The last time I visited this theatre was 1988 and it was nice place to see a movie considering it was in the mall. I haven’t been there since so I wouldn’t know what condition it’s in now but it’s still open and has been operated by Loews, and now by AMC.

The theatre opened on December 18th as a nine-screen theatre with seven engagements. Those films were Three Men And A Baby, Nuts, *batteries not included, Overboard, Throw Momma From The Train, Wall Street and Planes, Trains and Automobiles. The next week (December 25th), all nine screens were filled with Empire Of The Sun and Broadcast News opening.

The theatres now feature Digital Presentations and 3D. Saw my first movie here yesterday in Digital. It was like taking the Wayback Machine to 1987 Cineplex Odeon days. Boy is this theatre worn out! I worked all the Southern California Cineplex house back then and everything was like then. Curtains were in there up position and the seats are vintage late 1980’s. Other than being designed for Cineplex, it reminded me of those Mann and UA theatre from that era but with curtains. They showed 8-9 commercials 1 trailer AMC stuff and the feature. Which was the best part of the visit. The picture was bright and sound was good.

Theater is now AMC Newport Center 11. Later this year will mark 30 years since it opened.

Does anyone know in what year the 10th and 11th screens were built/added?

December 18th, 1987 grand opening ad in the photo section. Cineplex Odeon opened 6 other locations in Rocky Mount NC, Montréal, QC, Washington DC and three in the Greater Toronto area on the same day.

Correction: Cineplex Odeon opened 9 other locations including Calgary and Edmonton, AB and Provo Utah.

A shooting occurred at the mall today where one person was shot and as a result the mall is being evacuated.
